If you’ve followed our blog at all in even just the past year, then you’ve seen us mention a few times how important it is for summer planning that you schedule maintenance before the season begins. While spring is typically the best time to have this done, since it hasn’t gotten unbearably hot yet, there really is no wrong time to schedule maintenance—in the absence of a total system breakdown.
Air conditioning maintenance is the best way to avoid unnecessary Del City AC repair, improve your system’s lifespan, and help the AC function as efficiently as it can. But today we’re going to take our advice beyond simply scheduling maintenance. We want to encourage you to enroll in a maintenance program.
There are a number of benefits to doing so, some of which we’ve discussed below.
Your HVAC System Will Perform More Reliably
There are a number of ways in which maintenance benefits your air conditioner, as well as your heater when winter rolls back around. But the benefit that’s probably most important is that it makes your HVAC system more dependable throughout its season of use.
You probably don’t want an air conditioner that is at risk of failing during one of the hottest days of the year, nor do you want a furnace to stop working on one of the chilliest. Maintenance allows our professionals to thoroughly tune-up and clean these systems, locate potential problem areas, and in turn help the systems function more reliably.
The System Will Last Longer
An air conditioning or heating system that fails years before its estimated service life means a costly replacement on your plate. In order to get the best return on your initial investment in your HVAC system, you want it to last as long as possible, right? Well, routine maintenance is an essential part of seeing this happen.
Energy Savings throughout the Year
The wear and tear that your HVAC systems accumulate adds up to a drop in system inefficiency. In fact on average, these systems lose about 5% of their energy efficiency for each year you skip maintenance.
Subsequently, it won’t take long before your energy bills reflect this. But annual routing maintenance (or biannual, if you have a 2-in-1 heat pump system) can keep a system running at 95% of its initial efficiency throughout its entire service life, keeping those utility bills at a reasonable level.
Never Worry About Forgetting to Schedule Maintenance
It’s pretty easy to let HVAC maintenance slip your mind, whether it’s before summer or before the winter months. After all, you’re busy with more important things, right? Well, while we’re going to say that maintenance is pretty important, we do understand how you can forget, and that’s why if you’re a member of one of our maintenance plans, we will contact you to schedule your maintenance session, rather than waiting for you to reach out to us.
