why a/c check-ups are important

A/C check-ups are recommended by the EPA, ENERGY STAR, the U.S. Department of Energy, and local utilities.

One of the reasons check-ups are important is they help to reduce break downs. Annual maintenance helps to find small problems before they become big problems. For example, a plugged A/C drain is an easy fix but left unattended it can become a major problem when the drain backs up and you have water covering the floor damaging your home.

Annual check-ups allow the technician to see areas that are showing excessive wear and could potentially reduce or eliminate the risk of needing a service call during the hottest  weather of summer. Emergency service calls are very inconvenient to your schedule and can be very expensive.

Check-ups can increase efficiency. This means it can lower the cost of the electricity needed to cool your home. As the outdoor unit builds up with debris the A/C unit has to work harder to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home. The harder the unit has to work the more electricity it requires raising your electrical bill. Some studies claim a dirty outdoor coil can raise your cost of operation by as much as 30%

Annual check-ups will also give you a good idea of how long your system will last allowing you the time to plan for replacement rather than the unexpected emergency of needing a new system.

The annual check-up will help to increase the life of your a/c system. Just like normal maintenance to your car will keep it performing well and help it last longer the same is true for your air conditioner.

Ask about our Service Agreement and let us take care of reminding you when it's time for annual maintenace on your furnace and A/C.
