Is it hot enough out there for you? If your answer is a resounding “yes,” it’s time to consider getting your air conditioner serviced. Having an HVAC contractor come inspect and service your system and make any necessary repairs will help ensure your air conditioner will work well throughout the rest of the summer.
Here are the top reasons you need to get your AC inspected:
- Prevent inconvenient breakdowns: Murphy’s Law states that anything that can go wrong will go wrong—and air conditioner malfunctions always seem to happen on the hottest day of the year. Rather than filling up your bathtub with ice water and waiting until the sun goes down, simply book an AC inspection once per year. Your HVAC contractor will service the machinery, look for burgeoning problems and ensure your air conditioner will survive the summer.
- Make sure your system runs efficiently: When your air conditioner is in disrepair, it can’t work efficiently. For example, if you’ve forgotten to change your filter for the last few months, your HVAC unit will have a harder time pushing cold air through a dirty, clogged filter. That means it will have to work that much harder and longer to cool down the house. It’s not good for the machinery—or your utility bill.
- Spot problems before they become costly repairs: Like any piece of machinery, air conditioners require preventative maintenance. When you get an inspection, your contractor will let you know if there are any problems that may worsen over time. Those repairs are bound to save you money.
- Improve your air quality: When your air conditioner is clean, the filter is replaced and the ductwork is completely sealed, your air quality is bound to improve. For anyone who suffers from allergies or respiratory issues, AC inspection is a must.
- Reduce humidity: Properly functioning air conditioners reduce the humidity in your home, which is crucial during hot, humid Midwestern summers.
- Keep your air conditioner running longer: When you invest in regular inspection, maintenance and repairs, you’ll keep your air conditioning unit running a lot longer than it would otherwise. Some air conditioners can last up to two decades, although as technology improves, you may want to replace your unit sooner than that.
- Lower your utility bills: Finally, inspecting your air conditioning helps lower your utility bills. Who doesn’t want to save money on their monthly budget? When your air conditioning is running at maximum efficiency, it won’t have to work as hard to cool down your house. It will run less often and for a shorter period of time, requiring less electricity overall.
If your power bills are spiking along with the temperature, it might be time to schedule an air conditioning service appointment. It’s the best way to ensure you’ll stay cool and save money all season long.
