5 Reasons to Schedule Annual AC Maintenance

AC Repair and Maintenance

If you have an air conditioner, you should have an AC tune-up and inspection once a year. Regular AC maintenance will save you money by preserving and increasing your AC efficiency, which helps to lower your utility bills. Regular yearly tune ups also help to prevent major problems by catching problems when they are small. There are five main reasons to keep up with maintenance for air conditioners, which we will discuss below, as well as tips for AC repair.

1. Saving money

By performing regular AC tune-ups you will save money by improving your air conditioners efficiency. You will also save a ton of money by preventing major AC failures. If your AC fails during peak service season you could be without cool air for a few days, as well as facing higher service charges due to it being peak season. An AC tune up typically ranges between $70 to $100, while repair calls for a broken down AC unit will cost much more, so prevention will help you to save money.

2. Extend the life of your air conditioner

By scheduling regular AC tune-ups, you will extend the life of your air conditioner. Replacing an AC unit can be very expensive, so keeping the unit you already have in peak operating condition only makes sense. You will find that when you keep up with AC maintenance that you will not need to call AC service providers as much.

3. Remove dirt and grime from your system

Your air filters, coils and fins all will accumulate dirt, grime and filth over the course of a year. Filters need to be replaced about once every month or two during peak seasons, and you coils and fins need to be cleaned once per year. Failure to do so can result in your AC unit freezing over, which will sky rocket your utility bills and potentially result in major damage to your air conditioner.

4. Keeping your home cooler

Regular maintenance will detect if your freon levels are to low. If your freon levels dip to low, your home will not be as cool and your AC unit will need to work twice as hard, expending more power to cool down your home.

5. Prevent your AC from breaking down when you need it most

While having AC tune-ups is no guarantee that your AC will never break down on a hot day, it will greatly reduce the chance of this happening, if you call in an experience and qualified HVAC professional.
