The official start of summer is only a month away, but the temperatures here are already rising far into the red. You’ve probably already had your air conditioning system running to cool down your home. If you haven’t already arranged for regular spring maintenance for your AC, have it taken care of now—before your cooling system has to do any more work.
Why an AC Tune-Up Is So Important
“Is it necessary to have routine maintenance done each year?” you might be asking. We understand that homeowners often feel hesitant about paying upfront for maintenance for a system that seems to be working fine. But running an AC through a Texas summer without having it properly tune-up, cleaned, and maintained is as risky as taking a car on a cross-country trip without it having its regular maintenance. The car might complete the trip, but you’ll be nervous the whole way about a breakdown, and the car will suffer additional wear and tear that may end up shortening its life. The story with an air conditioner is much the same.
Here are some of the problems an AC can face if it misses its annual spring tune-ups:
- Higher cost of operation: As dust and dirt build up in a system and parts suffer extra wear and tear, an AC will drain more electrical power to function. And that means you’ll have to pay more to operate it. After only a few years, you could be paying 25% more than you should to run your AC.
- Shorter service life: The average service life of a central residential AC is 10 to 15 years. Without maintenance, service life can drop down to 5 to 8 years. Having to replace an air conditioner years before its time is one of the most expensive “repairs” the system will need.
- Too many repairs: Speaking of repairs, 85% of the ones an AC may need during its service life are avoidable thanks to maintenance. Think how much more you’ll end up paying for repairs without maintenance!
- Unreliable: An air conditioner is at a higher chance of suffering a catastrophic breakdown over the summer if it isn’t maintained. This means a huge inconvenience, as well as general worry for your over the summer.
