Reasons Why You Need to Get Your Air Conditioner Serviced

HVAC Company in Parker Colorado.

There are several reasons why it is very important to have your Air Conditioner serviced on a regular basis. We are going to dive into this topic as well as explain what this means.

Why Should You Have Your Air Conditioner Serviced?

Extend The Air Conditioner’s Life.  Servicing your air conditioner on a regular basis will help it last longer.  During a routine maintenance, your HVAC tech will clean, adjust, and lubricate air conditioner parts.  They will also look for any potential issues and fix them before they can turn into major problems.  By doing this, it will extend the life of your air conditioner so you can avoid the inconvenience and expense of having to replace your AC for a few more years.

Reduce Repairs and Emergencies. Nipping trouble in the bud not only prolongs the life of your system; it also means fewer repairs and emergencies throughout the cooling season. You will escape unpleasant downtime when your family would have to seat out the summer heat without a functional AC. You will also avoid costly air conditioning repair bills. 

Improve System Efficiency. When your system is properly maintained it will run at peak efficiency. This means dependable home comfort for you and your family, plus lowered energy costs.

Improve Air Quality. Your Air Conditioner circulates air all through your home. Make sure that the air is fresh and healthful to breathe.  Air conditioning service can improve your indoor air quality by cleaning the AC and ductwork of dust, pollen, mould, mildew, and other contaminants. 

What If You Choose Not To Service Your Air Conditioner?

Your warranty will probably be voided, for starters.  Warranties from most major air conditioning brands require regular professional maintenance to stay valid.

Equally important, the AC’s delicate components will suffer and might eventually fail due to the buildup of dirt and dust, as well as lack of lubrication.  As a result, you may have to replace essential parts or even the entire central air system, which will cost you much more than an air conditioning maintenance tune-up.

How Often Should You Service Your Air Conditioner?

At lest one time a year is what we recommend for an AC maintenance and tune-up. Usually the best time to book is in early spring, well in advance before the heat comes. However, living in Colorado a lot of times we receive snow into May. The outside temperatures need to be in the 70’s for us to do a proper maintenance and tune-up on your AC.
