It’s time to get ready for spring. For some of us that means cleaning the house, going through all the closets, and getting to those often forgotten chores. As you get ready for more warmth this coming spring in Wappingers Falls, don’t forget to make an appointment for AC maintenance.
Just like those other household chores, it can be easy to forget to make your annual appointment. But, honestly ask yourself when was the last time you had a professional, certified technician look at your air conditioner? If it’s been a year or more, you are due for an appointment. Here’s why.
In terms of lifestyle, it’s much more enjoyable to know you can rely on your AC to work when you need it. People who wait on maintenance and repairs are the ones you always hear saying, “Why do bad things happen to me?” It’s a lot like getting your oil changed on your car. You change the oil so that your engine will last. It wouldn’t come as a surprise to have engine problems if you let car maintenance go, and it’s no different when it comes to an air conditioning unit. Getting a yearly cleaning and inspection means knowing your technician will keep your machine running at its best, giving you the ability to relax and think about other things in life. Maintenance really is the responsible homeowner’s proactive approach.
2. Annual maintenance helps extend the lifespan of your AC.
An AC unit is an expensive upfront investment with an average lifespan of 15 years. That means your AC could die at 10 years, or it could last to 20 years running well with proper maintenance. The two things you can do to extend your AC’s lifespan are to change filters regularly and get annual maintenance. Maintenance helps get clogs out that build up behind the filter before they create mechanical problems or cause extra wear on parts. Lubricating and inspecting compressors and condensers allows your AC to run with less wear and tear, keeping it lasting longer.
3.Getting maintenance keeps costs down on repairs.
During a maintenance appointment, your technician can spot any needed repairs before they become bigger, more expensive problems. Getting a professional opinion each year helps you save because you could replace a small, worn part instead of an entire compressor or fan, thanks to a keenly trained professional eye for signs of damage.
4. Energy bills stay lower when your AC is in top shape.
Maintenance cleaning keeps your AC running at its most efficient so you aren’t paying more in utility bills than you have to each month.
