The Link Between AC Maintenance and Repairs


Many homeowners think that air conditioning maintenance in Advance, NC is an optional service. Although it is optional, it’s such an essential service that we feel like it should be required. When you don’t understand the benefits that AC maintenance provides, it’s easy to think that it’s just an extra service that HVAC companies try and sell to unsuspecting homeowners. But that’s simply not the case.

Air conditioning maintenance has a wide range of benefits that include reducing your utility costs, using your AC system less, improving your home comfort, maintaining your AC system’s warranty, and reducing the frequency of repairs. In fact, it has been proven that up to 80% of the repairs that an AC system needs could have been avoided if the system had been maintained regularly. 

Let’s go over the link between AC maintenance and how it can reduce the need for repairs. 

Air Conditioning Maintenance Reduces the Frequency of Repairs

It helps to use the analogy of a car that doesn’t receive maintenance when thinking about AC maintenance. Think about what would happen to your vehicle if you didn’t take it in for oil changes and tune-ups. Sooner than later, your vehicle is going to be completely broken down and you will be faced with an expensive repair bill. It’s not a possibility, it’s a definite scenario.

An air conditioning system is just like any complex piece of equipment. It requires regular maintenance to keep it running in peak condition. During a tune-up, our technicians perform a series of tasks that include inspecting and cleaning the system, checking the evaporator and condenser coils, checking the drainage system, looking for refrigerant leaks, lubricating moving parts, checking electrical connections, and much more.

Common AC Problems That Arise Without Maintenance

Without regular AC maintenance, your AC system is subject to a host of problems. From short cycling to reduced airflow, to blowing lukewarm air to not even turning on, all of these problems will require a repair appointment with our technicians. 

Not only that, but your AC system will have to endure a lot more wear and tear. This has many negative effects with the biggest being that you may have to replace your AC unit before its estimated lifespan of 10-15 years. In fact, that estimated lifespan only applies to systems that have received regular maintenance.

The Cost Savings of Regular Maintenance

Speaking strictly in dollars and cents, investing in regular AC maintenance more than pays for itself. But there are other incentives. You can enjoy worrying less about the possibility of your AC system breaking down on the hottest day of the year. Regular maintenance is the best way to prevent those pesky and costly repairs. You’ll also enjoy a boost in your home comfort as your AC system works at peak efficiency.
