When spring arrives in Schertz, TX, get prepared by scheduling maintenance for your air conditioner. Below, we discuss three of the most prominent benefits that come out of HVAC maintenance. We’re sure you’ll agree with us that they make the initial investment worth it.
Increased Energy Efficiency
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, annual maintenance can save you up to 30% on your monthly energy bill because it allows the AC to run as efficiently as possible. A poorly maintained AC will never hit that level, as its cycles may be too short; conversely, it may run too long, wasting energy while never reaching the temperature you desire.
Fewer Breakdowns and Repairs
Efficient performance, where no faulty components or blocked vents are compromising the system, will translate into fewer breakdowns. You’ll get peace of mind, then, when summer hits and you can’t go for a day without cool air. Besides that, you won’t find yourself requesting so many repairs since the tune-up will have anticipated most of the system’s needs.
A Long-Lasting AC
With maintenance, your heat pump will naturally last longer, though how long depends on how often you run it and how old it is already. Some say you should replace a system after 10 years, but heat pumps can go for 15 or even 20 years before inefficient performance becomes the norm.
