Why Is An Air-Conditioning Service Important?

Has your air conditioner ever stopped working during a Montgomery or Auburn, AL summer? You know, one of those days when the thermometer reads 92ºF and it feels like temperature is 104? In other words, that’s just about every day from June to September.
If it has happened to you, Dixie Electric, Plumbing & Air knows you never want it to happen again which is why air conditioning service is so important. Let us count the reasons:

#1 Maintenance Extends Equipment Life

During an HVAC tune-up, the technician identifies parts that are showing wear and tear and can replace them BEFORE they increase the stress on the unit. When the air conditioner must work harder to keep up, the system’s life is reduced. Maintenance will keep your heating and cooling system running longer.

#2 Avoid Costly Repairs

When you ignore HVAC maintenance you run the risk of unexpected breakdowns. These repairs are often expensive, especially if they require an emergency response which can entail after hour charges. When we are called out for repairs our technicians often find the breakdown could have been prevented during regular maintenance, at a much lower cost.

#3 Lower Utility Bills

Regular HVAC tune-ups keep your cooling system operating at peak efficiency. Peak efficiency means less electricity is used. Some estimate that regular maintenance can cut your costs by 15% a month.

#4 Comfort is Important

Air conditioning efficiency equals a comfortable home. When your A/C is not in tip-top shape, it’s going to have a harder time keeping up. The result for you is a home that could have uneven cooling, and rooms that are uncomfortably warm.

#5 Keeps Warranty in Effect

Have you read the fine print in your manufacturer warranty? Many people never do and don’t realize the warranty can be voided if regular maintenance isn’t performed. Manufacturers can even request documentation of HVAC maintenance before paying any warranty claim.
