Is Air Conditioning Maintenance Worth the Money?

June 20, 2018 | Blog

For many homeowners, air conditioning maintenance is overlooked. We see customers every day that have never changed their filter or didn’t even know the outdoor unit needed to be cleaned regularly.

Most of our parents trained us to change our oil every 3,000 miles and keep our vehicles maintained. But, very few educated us on the same need for our air conditioning system. Today, we’ll be discussing three reasons why AC maintenance is worth the expense:

1. Reliability

The first reason is reliability. You don’t want those expensive breakdowns on the hottest weekend of the year. And nobody wants to sit there sweating while waiting for service, just to get a big repair bill.

With preventive maintenance, you can schedule a time that’s convenient for you, and the service will pinpoint issues that may indicate a breakdown in the near future. This, in turn, allows you to address problems early on and budget for any necessary repairs.

2. Warranty Status

The second and often overlooked point is warranty status. Most systems nowadays come with a 5 or 10-year parts warranty. All manufacturers state that if the system doesn’t have maintenance records, they may not honor the warranty.

So, if a part on your system fails and you can’t provide records of maintenance, they won’t cover costs on the repair. That can get expensive really quick. If the system isn’t maintained, you’ll continue to experience more breakdowns — increasing your repair bills.

3. Money

The last reason why maintenance is important is money. You may be asking yourself, “Why should I spend money on maintenance when my system is working?” The answer to that is your system will last longer, which will save you more money in the long-term.

The system will be cleaner and run more efficiently, which lowers your home’s utility bills. It also saves you money by minimizing the risk of major-cost repairs. So, overall, a little money upfront will save you more over time.
