If it hasn’t happened to you, it’s happened to a friend or somebody in the family. It’s a hot, muggy day and the air conditioner is working hard. Until it stops.
It’s overheated, something has burnt out, cut off, called it quits –maybe for good.
Chances are the friend or family member with this air conditioner emergency can’t quite pinpoint the last time a local air conditioning technician visited to take care of some upkeep on the air conditioner. Or maybe it was you, and you’re kicking yourself for skipping out on maintenance for so long.
If you don’t already know, regular air conditioner maintenanceis necessary, and it’s the best way to avoid expensive emergency repairs.
Why ac maintenance is necessary every year
Maintenance is all about prevention and maintaining high quality operation in your equipment.
Reduced likelihood of unexpected breakdowns and emergency repairs. Emergency repairs are more expensive and stressful. You can probably avoid it altogether by simply keeping up with annual air conditioning maintenance.
Better cooling. Over time, older systems provide spotty cooling. Keeping up with the demand of a hot Ontario summer gets harder every day, until your ac runs itself ragged. Regular maintenance will keep your system running like new until the time for a new unit comes.
Greater efficiency. Homeowners can get frustrated by higher than expected cooling bills in the summer. Regular maintenance can maintain the high efficiency your system should achieve and reduce monthly expenses noticeably.
Superb air quality. Your air conditioner works hard to improve and filter the air in your home. Dust and debris left hiding in the recesses of your system can cause the air in your home to be more damaging to your health than the air outside.
Longer air conditioner lifespan. A system getting regular maintenance will last twice as long as a neglected system. That’s a huge value, considering the cost of a new air conditioner.
Annual air conditioner maintenance
Maintenance is no good as a one-off service. It’s an annual necessity, to get the full value listed above.
Just like you take your car in for regular maintenance, you should book a technician to perform annual maintenance on your air conditioner, well, annually.
If you don’t, you’ll probably have to replace your whole air conditioner long before you should, and you might be stuck with several expensive repair bills through its life.
