Just like your car, your air conditioning system has a lot of moving parts and needs regular maintenance. You wouldn’t skip an oil change, and you should have your air conditioner serviced each spring. As the weather turns warmer and the days get longer, it’s a good time to have your HVAC system maintenanced. Here are three ways maintenance can save you money.
Lower Utility Bills
When your system is clogged with dirt and debris, your air conditioner has to work harder to keep your home cool. The harder it works means the longer it takes to reach the temperature you want, and this runs up your utility bills. Regular maintenance removes these pollutants from your system allowing your air conditioner to run for shorter periods with the same results.
Small Repairs Lead to Major Repairs
As part of your air conditioning service, the technician inspects your entire unit and looks for any issues that need repair. Taking care of a small repair now can help you avoid a major repair a little further down the road; some parts just need replacement after being in use for a while.
Extend the Life of Your Air Conditioning Unit
As one of the most expensive systems in your home, you expect your air conditioner to last more than a decade. However, many factors go into how many years you actually get out of the unit. Having a professional service your air conditioner unit each year keeps the unit clean, well maintained and small repairs fixed, which can add to the years your unit has.
Having a professional from M&M Mechanical visit your home each spring not only helps you avoid emergency calls during the hottest months, but can save you money. These savings are both immediate and long term for your wallet.
