Then, give our team a call for air conditioner maintenance in Bridgewater Township, NJ. If you didn’t schedule AC maintenance at the end of last summer, now is a great time to do so before the cooling season sets in and temperatures increase.
The Fine Print
First, it is important to emphasize that the benefits of AC maintenance primarily apply to consistently investing and maintenance over the entire lifespan of your air conditioner. Sure, you do reap some short term benefits. But consistency is the key if you want to enjoy these benefits in the long run, too.
Perk #1 – Fewer Repairs
When you invest in AC maintenance, you address small problems before they become big ones. Sure, our team makes small repairs during these appointments, but that just means usually you won’t need separate repair appointments later because you have a surprise system break down. If we notice an issue, we will address it right away so you don’t have to worry about it later on.
Perk #2 – Longer Lifespan
The average air conditioner will last between 10 and 15 years. When you invest in annual maintenance, you can expect your air conditioner to last for at least 15 years, if not longer. This means you’re getting more benefit out of that initial investment. Plus, when it does come time for an air conditioner replacement, you will have more of a heads up. You will be able to plan ahead and save money toward a new unit without having to make an emergency replacement because your air conditioner stopped working.
Perk #3 – Safety Considerations
There’s nothing quite like the peace of mind in knowing that your air conditioner is safe to operate. When you consider the refrigerant lines, electrical wires, and maybe even gas lines, there’s a lot that could go wrong. Annual maintenance is an opportunity to check all of these things closely and stay ahead of safety concerns. When you invest in the service annually, you always know that your air conditioner is in optimal condition.
Perk #4 – Energy Savings
Annual maintenance helps maintain your air conditioner’s energy efficiency. Over time, it is natural for the system to lose some of its efficiency and require more energy to produce the same results. As your energy efficiency decreases year after year, your energy bills can steadily go up. But annual maintenance can help to streamline this effect so that you don’t lose efficiency quite as fast.
Perk #5 – Indoor Air Quality
Your air filter can only do so much to prevent dust and dirt from getting into your AC unit. Annual maintenance is an opportunity to identify small holes and gaps in the system that let in dirt and allergens. Our team can make repairs, clean the inside of your AC system, and help maintain better indoor air quality. Plus, when your air conditioner is working at its best it can do more to facilitate clean air for your home.
