It’s Time Once Again for Air Conditioning Maintenance

air-conditioner-condenser-3D-renderWhat’s the best thing you can do for your air conditioning in Essex, VT? Schedule routine maintenance for it from our professionals! And when’s the best time to do it? Spring—right now!

We’re looking forward to the warm weather as much as you are, and we want you to get the most from the coming summer—a summer we all anticipate will be much better than last year’s. Although you can anticipate spending less time in your home than you did last summer, that doesn’t mean you can skip taking care of the AC. This is not the year to skip air conditioning maintenance. It’s as important as ever.

A Gentle Reminder of Why AC Maintenance Is So Important

We understand that people are a bit hesitant to invest in maintenance. Paying for an urgent repair makes sense in the moment, while paying to prevent repairs in the future feels less urgent. But that money spent to prevent problems is less than paying for the repairs, plus it removes a great deal of stress and saves you in time and money in several other ways.

Here’s our rundown of the biggest benefits of remembering to schedule spring AC maintenance with our experts:

  • Wipe away most repair needs: The majority of repairs an air conditioner might require during its service life are due to lack of maintenance. If you keep current with regular maintenance tune-ups and inspections, more than 50% of future repairs will vanish. That’s great news all around: less money spent on repairs, less time trapped in an overheated house waiting for repairs, less worry about the system getting through the season.
  • Give the system a long service life: The service life expectancy of air conditioning systems is 10–15 years. But that’s only if they have annual maintenance. The life expectancy starts to fall without maintenance, and your system may give out after only 7 years. Regular maintenance means keeping your AC working for many years and staving off an expensive replacement.
  • Prevent drops in energy efficiency: The energy efficiency of an AC will decline by around 5% each year it misses maintenance. On the other hand, an AC that has routine maintenance will keep 95% of its efficiency until the last one or two years of its service life. You won’t have to pay more to run the air conditioner than necessary. 
  • Stop emergency breakdowns: You don’t want your AC to fail on your during the hottest day of the summer—but that’s a strong possibility when the system doesn’t have maintenance in spring. You’ll enjoy greater peace of mind when you know your AC is unlikely to break down on you during the summer. You can relax and enjoy the season.
