The Top 4 reasons you should get your AC checked
Posted by Hannah Barney
Is your air conditioner prepared for the warm months ahead? You’ve probably heard time and time again that it’s important to schedule your AC check every year. But what you really want to know is WHY you should get it checked, right?
Here are the top 4 reasons you should get your AC check:
- Fewer repairs over time. Air conditioners malfunction for many reasons, but one of the more obvious ones is a lack of preventative maintenance. Over time, the repairs will probably end up costing you much more than you would like. Identifying problems early on can help prevent unnecessary costs and increase the life of your appliance.
- Increase in energy efficiency. AC units that use dirty filters will be forced to use MORE energy to run correctly. By cleaning and/or replacing your filters, your AC unit will not need to use as much energy to run efficiently (which means a decrease in cooling costs).
- Improvement in air quality. Another benefit to having clean filters includes improved air quality. If you have a family member with allergies, they will definitely appreciate this as well! A cleaner AC system will help decrease the allergens floating around in the air.
- Get your piece of mind back. Since you and your family will know that the system is working, you will be able to plan family gatherings in advance knowing well that your cooling system will work when you need it most.
