Most homeowners know that it is recommended that they have their air conditioner serviced once a year. However, it is not uncommon for people to forgo their annual HVAC tune-up either to save money, or due to the fact that they believe that having their air conditioner serviced is not that important.
However, just like it is important that you have your car serviced regularly in order to keep it running, it is critical that you have your air conditioner serviced annually in order to ensure that it operates properly. If you are unfamiliar with the importance of regular AC maintenance, here are just a few of the reasons why you need to have your air conditioner serviced this spring.
Regular Tuneups Will Save You Money
One of the most important reasons to have your air conditioner serviced is that doing so can actually save you money. While having your air conditioner serviced may seem like an unnecessary expense, professional servicing will ensure that your system runs as efficiently as possible, which can save you money on your energy bills. Regular maintenance will also prevent unnecessary strain on your system’s components, which will reduce the frequency and cost of eventual repairs, helping to further save you money.
Having your system inspected once a year will also ensure that problems that arise with your system can be caught and repaired early. By taking a proactive approach to your AC maintenance, you will not have to worry about your system breaking down in the middle of the summer when you need it most.
Extend Your System’s Life
Generally, air conditioners are made to last between 10-15 years; however, how long your system actually lasts will depend on how well you take care of it. If you do not properly take care of your system, you may find that you barely make it to the ten year mark. However, a system that is properly maintained may reliably cool you home for 15 years or more. Annual AC maintenance can then be seen as an investment in your home.
It May be Necessary
If you have a newer HVAC system, having annual tune-ups performed may actually be required in order to maintain your warranty. If this is the case, it is critical that you have your system serviced regularly in order to avoid voiding the warranty.
