Why is Regular AC Maintenance Important?

Just like all other electronic appliances, your air conditioner requires regular preventive maintenance. The preventive maintenance procedures include inspection of the system, tuning up and fixing the small problems found in the unit. There are a number benefits that come with maintenance. Read on to learn why it is important to get regular AC preventive maintenance.

Saves on the energy bills

Your AC becomes inefficient over time. A jammed fan or clogged filter can make the air conditioner work harder to compensate for the low air intake. The thermostat may also be displaying wrong values- further overworking the AC. With regular maintenance, the AC is tuned-up to perform optimally which in turn lowers the energy bills.

Prevents emergency breakdowns

An AC system that is not properly maintained is likely to break down at any time, especially when it is running over a long period. During preventive maintenance, small issues are fixed before they lead to the breakdown of the whole unit. Therefore, you are less likely to experience a breakdown when you need your cooling the most.

Lowers the cost of repairs

Bigger problems often cost more to fix. By the time there’s a breakdown, the likelihood is high that one or more parts have already been damaged and need extensive repairs. However, with preventive maintenance, most of the problems can be solved when they are still small and cheap to fix. In the long run, regular maintenance is a lot cheaper than the increasing number of repairs as a unit ages.

Indoor air quality

The status of the AC determines the quality of the indoor air. Mold, dust, and odors in the compressor and vent may cause allergies, respiratory problems, and make the indoor air less pleasant. Regular AC maintenance involves changing the filters and cleaning several parts of the system where necessary. This ensures clean and pollutant-free indoor air for the whole family.
