4 Benefits of Regular Air Conditioning Service
As warmer weather rapidly approaches, a regular air conditioning service can save you from having to undergo repairs or long wait times in the middle of a heat wave. However, if that’s not enough for you, here are five additional benefits to working with professional AC technicians.
More Energy Efficient
Air conditioning services help limit common problems that often decrease a unit’s energy efficiency. For instance, 20 to 30% of air is lost due to leaks, holes, or poorly connected ducts. This creates more strain on your unit and a bigger hole in your wallet. By conducting routine services, any percentage of loss can be caught before it causes further damage. This includes replacing filters, inspecting electrical components, checking for leaks, and more. According to the Department of Energy, replacing a dirty, clogged filter with a clean one can lower an air conditioning system’s energy consumption from 5% to 15%.
Prolongs the Lifespan of Your AC
Whether you’ve purchased a high-quality air conditioner or whatever was on sale at your local home appliance store, they both serve the same purpose of keeping you cool and comfortable. While each system and home have varying demands, a standard air conditioner can last anywhere from 15 to 20 years with proper care and maintenance.
Implementing routine check-ups is not only a worthy investment to ensure your unit continues to work at its peak performance, but it leaves you to rest assured, knowing that any problems are caught and addressed early on—keeping your unit chugging along with ease.
After a mild desert winter in El Paso, warmer days are rapidly approaching, and we can expect to spend summer afternoons in above 90-degree temperatures. While the heat is great for spending weekends around in a pool, nothing quite beats coming home to a cool house.
It’s not uncommon for air conditioners to run all day, every day. Many modern homes carry central air set to your preferred temperature. A check-up makes sure your thermostat presents accurate readings to your air conditioning system, ensuring it’s not overworking and your house gets to temp when you want it to.
A regular air conditioning service definitely beats an unexpected replacement to get through El Paso’s hottest days and warm nights. However, inadequate maintenance leads to more consistent costs, such as higher energy bills and unexpected, large repairs or replacements. By scheduling annual air conditioning services, you’re cutting down costs that would be otherwise lost to an inefficient AC.
