Getting AC repairs done frequently can save you a lot of money in the long run. While it sounds crazy that constant maintenance saves money, if the repairs being done are small and/or preventative you will save much more than you would on if you waited until there was an emergency or a major repair needed. You can always check the unit by yourself, but it is recommended that you have a professional come by to ensure that you are looking for the right signs and symptoms and that everything is actually functioning properly.
Specific benefits of repairs and maintenance include improved system performance and safety, which leads to reduced energy costs within the home and extends the life of the equipment overall. Besides protecting the unit and your wallet, constant maintenance can also lower or eliminate health risks that come from having poor air quality in the home, especially people with asthma.
The specific frequency that you have you air conditioning unit looked at is up to your lifestyle and budget. At the very least you will want to have it inspected before summer. This is because all units are at the greatest risk of breaking down when they are over-used, which happens during the hot summer months. Also, your budget limits you infrequent or possibly just once a year maintenance or you feel that you don’t use your AC often enough to warrant a need for frequent repairs, it is even more important that you check your filters every two months and replace them as needed. You can do this more frequently if you live in a dusty area.
Getting small repairs to your AC unit now instead of having to replace the whole unit later is ideal. Contact your local HVAC repair center for more information specific to your unit or to schedule an inspection or repairs today.
