Why Is It So Important to Have a Preventative AC Maintenance Plan?

One item on your preventative AC maintenance plan can reduce energy consumption by between 5 and 15 percent. According to the U.S. Energy Department, replacing or cleaning your air conditioner’s air filters can make this much difference.

Why is it so important to have a preventative AC maintenance plan? Read on to find out how an AC maintenance plan could save you money and trouble in the long run.

An AC Maintenance Plan Saves Money

Having to fix a breakdown in your air conditioner is not just inconvenient. It can be expensive too.

The better maintained your air conditioner is, the more efficient it will be. This means your energy costs will be lower than if you didn’t have a preventative maintenance plan.

Buying and installing an air conditioner is a big expense. Far better to extend the life of your existing AC unit. Regular checks of your air conditioner, cleaning, and replacement of filters will put that replacement expense off.

Maintain Warranty Cover

The warranty on an air conditioning unit can give you peace of mind. If the unit fails, a valid warranty will cover the cost of repair. But are you sure that your warranty will be valid?

Many air conditioning warranties require you to have regular preventative maintenance. Failing to do this will mean that if the air conditioning unit breaks down you will not be covered by the warranty and may have a large bill to repair the unit. Check your warranty conditions.

Maximize Performance

Your air conditioning unit helps provide you with a pleasant living environment. When temperatures are high outside, you want to enjoy pleasantly cool temperatures indoors.

If you operate your air conditioning unit seasonally, you will only be aware of a performance problem when you most need it to work. The temperatures will be soaring and you’ll be trying to call an air conditioning engineer in to fix it. This will be at the same time as every other homeowner with a poorly maintained air conditioner is doing the same thing.

Regular preventative maintenance is the best way to maintain reliable performance. The maintenance can be done by our AC technicians at a time when you don’t most need it.

Better Air Quality

One of the benefits of having air conditioning is the impact it has on air quality. An air conditioning unit filters and purifies the air passing through it. This process removes many allergens such as smoke, pollen, dust mites, and mold.

We probably wouldn’t want to breathe these substances anyway but, in some cases, it’s more serious than personal preference. Removing allergens can significantly help with illnesses such as asthma. A bad case of asthma can lead to hospitalization and may be life-threatening.

Having air ducts cleaned and air conditioning filters changed helps remove the build-up of harmful allergens and maintains air quality.
