Spring into action this month and schedule your AC maintenance. Spring is the perfect time for AC maintenance to prepare your unit for the hot summer months that are upon us. Not only that, but maintenance will also help prevent it from breaking down when you need it the most. Here are five reasons why you should consider scheduling your maintenance this spring.
- Wake Up Your Unit
- Prevent Breakdowns
You wouldn’t drive your car 10,000 miles without changing the oil and the same is true for your AC system. The more well-maintained your unit is, the less chance you have of it breaking down when you need it the most – like in the middle of a hot Florida summer. Preventative maintenances at least once a year will help reduce the chance of future breakdowns.
- Increase Energy Efficiency
Over time, your unit will naturally lose its efficiency. However, dirt, dust, and debris also contribute to this and can cause your system to run less efficiently than it should – much quicker than it should. When you maintain your AC unit and keep it cleaned, your unit will run more efficiently and save you money on your energy bill.
- Improve Indoor Air Quality
Spring has been dubbed allergy season for a reason, and that’s because it brings more than just flowers – it also brings a good amount of pollen with it. Improving your indoor air quality will help you sneeze less and breathe better. If you don’t get your AC unit cleaned every year, the particles that have collected throughout the wintertime will start circulating inside. Improve your indoor air quality this spring and reduce the number of allergens inside your home.
- Increase Lifespan of your Unit
Homeowners throughout Florida know how expensive air conditioning can be. Luckily, it’s not a purchase we often have to make very often. Regular maintenance will ensure that your unit is running as efficiently as possible, for as long as possible. AC systems that are well-maintained can last 10 to 15 years. If they’re not regularly serviced, that lifespan can be much shorter, and you could be looking at making another big purchase sooner than you planned.
Your AC unit has been hibernating all winter long – untouched and unused. Your system has likely collected dust, dirt, and debris and potentially even developed an issue you’re unaware of since last year. Your AC pros will not only clean your unit to get it ready for use, but they’ll also catch any smaller issues that have the potential to become bigger and more costly if not addressed.
