Think about the last time you had someone visit your home to perform routine AC maintenance. Was it 3 months ago? 6? Too long to recall? It’s easy to forget that an AC unit is just like any other machine and will need routine inspection and cleaning in order to function at its best. Most people are diligent about keeping their vehicle maintained and schedule things like oil changes and tire rotations on a regular basis. Why not treat your AC unit with similar care?
Putting your AC unit on a maintenance schedule could help save you money on your energy bill and avoid expensive repairs by catching problems early. It can also help you avoid getting caught in a heatwave without a working AC unit or waiting for an available repairman or for parts to arrive. A technician’s AC maintenance visit should involve, among other things, checking your unit for any loose or worn-out parts, doing a thorough cleaning, and also checking the thermostat to make sure it’s functioning properly and registering the correct temperature.
Having a technician come by to investigate that rattling noise or musty smell as soon as you notice it will help keep your home cool and comfortable year-round and could save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars in energy bills, repairs, and replacements. Schedule AC maintenance at least once per year to keep your unit running at its best, and keep your home cool and comfortable all year.
