Air conditioning during the summer in Texas is a necessity. Keeping up with regular maintenance to your AC unit not only keeps your energy bill lower but also keeps the air you breathe cleaner. Our team at Champion AC & Plumbing offers top-notch AC maintenance. We’ve compiled some benefits to these important routine tune-ups.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, AC tune-ups, home audits and preventative maintenance could mean saving up to 30% on your energy bill annually. During a home audit, a professional AC technician will pinpoint areas of your home where the most energy is lost so that you can decide what to fix and how. This process helps ensure your AC system is running at peak efficiency, saving you money in the long run.
If your AC system ever stops working under warranty, most manufacturers require proof of check-up maintenance before they will fix the problem. Keeping up with preventative maintenance on your system will help save you time and money if something mechanically ever does go wrong.
On a hot and humid Austin day, the last thing you want is for your air conditioning to short-cycle or shut down. Routine maintenance gives you peace of mind that your unit won’t suddenly fail to produce cool air. Remember Murphy’s Law: if something can go wrong, it will. Avoid this possibility by scheduling a tune-up today.
Regular maintenance on your home’s AC unit helps keep the air filtering through your home cleaner and safer to breathe. Every home, no matter the location, shares its air with many substances such as:
- Dust Mites
If a unit goes unserviced for a period of time, these pollutants can block the air ducts and hinder the system from pushing air out as it should. In turn, areas of your home may not feel as cool as others, resulting in your system working harder.
The biggest benefit of preventative maintenance is system longevity. Just like your car, your air conditioning unit needs regular maintenance if it’s going to run at its fullest potential for the long haul. Most units last 12-20 years, and with regular maintenance, your air conditioner could make it to see two decades while still operating at its best.
This can also give a service technician the opportunity to check for problems within the unit and fix them before it becomes a bigger issue. Tune-ups help ensure your AC is running as efficiently as possible, and help keep the system from disrepair.
Routine maintenance will ensure your air conditioner runs as efficiently as possible. An unmaintained unit will work harder to operate, causing your energy bill to spike. Even a 5% decrease in efficiency can lead to higher bills and less cool air. A maintained AC is a cheaper AC.
