Summer! Just the word brings feelings of freedom, relaxation and excitement! Although some of us remain busy during these warm months, most are able to escape for awhile on a vacation that we’ve anticipated since the last one ended. As you sit at your desk with visions of palm trees, swimsuits and beaches dancing in your head, something sinister may be at work back at your home! During the year, as you are working towards your summer vacation, your A/C unit is working too. Unfortunately if you’ve neglected to have maintenance performed on your unit, it’s been working overtime collecting dust and dirt. This makes it less efficient and costs you more money in utility bills. Not only that, but there’s a greater chance of a system breakdown, which could cost you hundreds! If you find yourself in a predicament with a broken air handler, chances are, that vacation money you’ve been hoarding is going to go straight into a new unit. If that thought scares you, it might be time to get your system maintenance and inspection before disaster strikes!
“So what are the benefits of maintaining my air conditioning equipment?” This may be a question on most people’s minds, especially as they’re trying to be smart with their money. As it turns out, the benefits far outweigh the cost of maintenance:
- You’ll have fewer breakdowns. 90% of breakdowns can be avoided with regular maintenance.
- The longevity of your equipment will increase significantly, allowing you to save big on your utility bills!
