As we move into the warmer months of the year, it’s important for many homeowners to get a professional check-up on their air conditioning units. California summers can get dry and hot, and relying on your AC is a must. This spring is a fantastic time to ensure it’s ready to go and prevent potential issues. There are several benefits to spring AC maintenance.
Helps Your AC Unit Last Longer
A central AC unit lasts around 15-20 years. Maintenance and upkeep is the best way to extend the lifespan of your AC unit. When a professional provides maintenance, they can also let you know the timeline of your AC unit, so you know when to expect to replace it. AC maintenance limits the impact of daily wear on your unit, allowing you to enjoy it for longer.
Increases Energy Efficiency
Without maintenance, your unit can become highly inefficient. It can get clogged and worn from use, and this can prevent air from easily flowing through the unit. The unit has to expend a lot more energy to get the same amount of air. Maintenance improves the unit’s efficiency and can lessen your environmental impact.
Lowers Your Energy Bill
A more energy-efficient AC system is also a less costly system. If you’ve noticed a spike in your energy bills, it may be caused by issues with the AC unit. Professionals can check for issues like clogged air filters or low coolant systems and make a less expensive energy bill for you.
Depending on your home and the people and animals in it, AC loss can be anywhere from uncomfortable to dangerous. Maintenance on your system enables you to be more confident in your unit’s ability to keep your home cool and comfortable during the hot months.
