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.
Why Is AC Maintenance Important?
- It can improve your system's performance and safety
- It can reduce energy costs within the home
- It can extend the life of the equipment overall
- It can lower or eliminate health risks that come from having poor air quality in the home, especially people with asthma.
How Often Should You Maintenance Your AC
At the very least you will want to have your air conditioner 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. However, the specific frequency that you have your air conditioning unit looked at is up to your lifestyle and budget.
If 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.
