Want to save money on your home’s heating and cooling costs without sacrificing comfort? If you’re scratching your head wondering how that could possibly work, allow us to introduce you to the many benefits of regular AC maintenance. In addition to improving your home comfort and boosting your indoor air quality, regular maintenance can also help you save big! Here are just a few ways you can save money by scheduling regular maintenance for your AC.
1. Improved Energy Efficiency
Your air conditioner is responsible for about half of your energy use. That means your AC use makes up a hefty portion of your monthly energy bills. During the summer, the average Florida household spends upwards of a $100 a month on cooling costs alone!
With numbers like these, you may find yourself looking for any possible way to reduce energy usage. Unfortunately, many of these solutions require you to trade your home’s comfort for lower energy bills. However, that’s certainly not the case with regular AC maintenance! When your AC is properly maintained, especially before the beginning of a new heating or cooling season, it’ll run more efficiently. That means you’ll save money on your energy bills and stay cooler at the same time. It’s a win-win.
2. Reduced Risk of Costly Breakdowns
AC breakdowns are inconvenient and expensive. While you can’t always predict when your air conditioner will give out, you can take steps to avoid a breakdown from happening in the first place. When a professional technician performs maintenance on your air conditioner, they’ll inspect your entire system to make sure everything is working the way it should be. This gives them the opportunity to catch minor issues before they escalate into an unexpected, inconvenient AC fiasco. Wouldn’t you rather schedule regular AC maintenance now than end up paying for a major AC breakdown later?
3. Increased Air Conditioner Lifespan
Ductwork and all, your AC is likely the largest mechanical system in your home. So, of course, you want it to last you a long time. While your air conditioning system should last you at least 10 years or so, you may be cutting its time short if you aren’t taking proper care of it. Over time, your AC can become dirty and develop clogs, and some parts may be thrown off balance a bit. All of these things slow your system down and cause it to work harder, ultimately shortening the lifespan of your equipment. However, when your AC receives the regular maintenance it needs, it’ll run more smoothly and efficiently, which will, in turn, extend its life. And the less often you have to replace your AC, the more money you save!
