You’ve installed a new, energy-efficient air conditioner in your Tallahassee, FL, home. Your utility bills are low, your comfort level is high and your indoor air is clean and fresh. You want to keep it all going for as long as possible, and by making a commitment to annual HVAC maintenance, you can. Here’s why:
It Reduces Equipment Wear and Tear
Spring maintenance prepares your air conditioner to handle the long, hot Florida summer. Tuneups optimize HVAC performance which reduces system wear and tear. Optimal performance also means efficient operation, and efficient operation keeps energy costs low.
It Prevents Problems That Could Damage Your Equipment
During a maintenance visit, a good HVAC technician will give your air conditioner the mechanical equivalent of an annual physical exam. He will test electrical connections, calibrate the thermostat, look for blockages in the condensate drain, check for worn parts, verify the refrigerant level, lubricate moving parts, check ductwork for leaks and evaluate blower motor and blower belt performance. All of this keeps your HVAC equipment healthy by preventing potential problems that could harm your equipment, shorten its lifespan and result in expensive heating and cooling repairs.
It Keeps Equipment Warranties In Effect
Heating and cooling systems purchased from reputable HVAC contractors almost always require annual maintenance to keep equipment warranties valid. There’s a good reason for that. Air conditioners that aren’t maintained often need repairs and have a shorter lifespan. This is especially true for hardworking AC systems that provide daily relief from the stifling Tallahassee summers. However, problems sometimes develop that result in early HVAC system failure through no fault of your own, even if you’ve been scrupulous about maintenance. If that happens, you’ll have the peace of mind of knowing you’ll be covered by warranty for AC repair or AC replacement.
