Many homeowners mistakenly believe that if their air conditioning system seems to be running fine without any issues, then there’s no need to schedule an AC tune-up appointment. Wrong! There are several problems that an air conditioner could face that aren’t necessarily obvious to the untrained (in terms of HVAC knowledge) homeowner.
Why should you maintain your AC?
A well-maintained cooling system is one that runs efficiently and can keep all rooms and levels of your family’s home comfortable — even on the hottest days of the season. When you don’t keep up with annual maintenance for this vital appliance, the unit could become full of dirt and dust, hindering its ability to effectively keep your family cool, and this could cause it to work overtime to try and maintain the temperature set on your thermostat. This extra strain could lead to premature wear and tear on the unit or could cause you to have higher energy bills.
As a matter of fact, according to a recent report from the Real Estate Witch, over 21% of homeowners surveyed were caught off guard by how much they had to pay on their heating and cooling systems. These costs could be associated with repairs needed for an AC or furnace that wasn’t properly maintained.
In addition to running efficiently, a properly cared for air conditioner runs “clean” — not jeopardizing the overall indoor air quality for your home by blowing out dirty, dusty conditioned air. This is great news if anyone in your household suffers from allergies or breathing problems, such as asthma.
