Most people would agree that regular maintenance or “check-ups” are important. Whether it’s an annual health physical, a twice-a-year dental cleaning, or the routine oil change, these check-ups help ensure all is well and make us aware of minor trouble brewing before it results in a big, costly, and painful fix.

But let’s say you completely forgot to schedule your physical, dental cleaning, or oil change. Would you just shrug it off and forget about it until next year? Of course not. So why would you put off annual AC maintenance any longer?

Sure, we recommend having this important service completed before the cooling season. But if you didn’t get around to scheduling it then, there’s no time like the present. Here’s why:

Reduced AC Repairs

One of the biggest benefits of annual preventive maintenance is that it makes your AC system more reliable. You’ll deal with less repairs overall, and drastically reduce the chances of unexpected, emergency issues. That’s because during an AC inspection, one of our experienced technicians will check that all parts and components are working as they should and identify any issues that could turn into costly repairs.

Reduced Cooling Costs

Not only will you see fewer repairs, you’ll notice significant savings on your cooling costs. A well-maintained system operates more efficiently and effectively, which means you’ll pay less to cool your home.

Better Energy Efficiency

Regular wear and tear strains system parts and components, causing your AC to work harder and run longer to reach your desired temperature and remove humidity from your home. This reduction in efficiency translates into an increase in energy consumption. With regular maintenance, you can be sure that your system is operating at peak efficiency.

Longer Equipment Lifespan

Regular preventive maintenance helps your AC system last years longer. Most well-maintained air conditioners last 10-15 years or even longer depending on the manufacturer and type of cooling system. Annual professional inspections will help give your AC the best chance of lasting a long time while costing you less to operate over the years.

While summer may be slowly slipping away, it doesn’t mean that your chance to have your AC inspected is as well.  If it’s been a year or more since your AC system was inspected, Contact the comfort professionals at Anthony’s to schedule your appointment today.
