Spring snuck up on us a little early this year in the St. Louis area, which is all the more reason to start getting ready for the cooling season! In order to make sure your unit is ready to take on the dog days of summer, it’s best to take action now with air conditioner preventive maintenance. So what are the benefits of calling an HVAC contractor for preventive maintenance? Here are the top four:
- Save energy. According to the EPA, households spend about 17 percent of their annual energy bills on cooling. That’s why it’s so important to get your unit running as efficiently as possible. During air conditioner preventive maintenance, your technician will check, test and adjust your cooling system to ensure it isn’t wasting energy.
- Increase comfort levels. Air conditioner preventive maintenance is the best way to make sure you stay cool in every room in your house during the summer. Your technician will not only make sure that your air conditioner is running smoothly, but also that conditioned air is being properly distributed throughout your home.
- Avoid unnecessary repairs. Have you ever had your air conditioner go out during one of the hottest days of the year? We definitely wouldn’t recommend it! By addressing issues with your unit now, you can avoid breakdowns during the days, weeks and months that you need it the most.
- Extend the life of your unit. Preventive maintenance can add years to the life of your air conditioner. The less stress and breakdowns it endures season after season, the longer your investment in it will last.
