Annual Air Conditioner Maintenance can help save money on your energy bills, avoid costly breakdowns and keep your air clean!
When air conditioning equipment is not maintained properly, your energy costs can increase by as much as 20 percent. Regular maintenance is essential to keep your system operating properly and failing to maintain the system can shorten its life. You wouldn’t drive your car 100,000 miles without changing the oil. The same logic holds true for your home comfort system. Regular A/C preventative maintenance is the best way to ensure trouble-free operation and peak performance. Pre-season maintenance is also important. It can help to avoid a system failure in severe hot weather when you need it most, and it can also keep your energy bill from getting out of control.
Peak Performance with an Air Conditioner Maintenance Plan
Regular maintenance can save money on your energy bills. Dirt on the A/C evaporator coil increases energy costs by about 5%, dirty furnace blower wheels reduce air flow by 30%, and when the refrigerant in an air conditioner is undercharged, it can reduce the efficiency by half. In addition, problems can be caught early and furnace repair or air conditioning repairs can be completed before the problem gets bigger.
