Why Should I Service My Air Conditioning?
Here at SMP, we recommend that everyone gets yearly maintenance performed on their air conditioning systems. Although there is no concrete lifespan for any given A/C system, on average they can last anywhere from 10 to 15 years. Just like your car, the better you treat and maintain your system, the longer it will last. In addition to lengthening the lifespan of your A/C, yearly maintenance can provide you with:
Fewer Service Problems - Tune-ups prevent costly equipment breakdowns, maintain optimal efficiency and can extend the life of your equipment. They also prevent your system from breaking down during peak season when service calls have longer wait times.
Savings on Heating and Cooling Bills - According to the U.S. Department of Energy, you can save up to 10% on your utility bills just by having regular tune-ups performed on your heating and cooling system each year.
Safety - With gas furnaces, regular inspections can detect tiny cracks in your heating system's heat exchanger, cracks through which carbon monoxide can leak into your home. Early detection can keep your family healthy and may result in smaller repair costs.
Keep Warranties Valid - Your system warranty may not be honored if your equipment is not properly maintained. Make sure to read your warranty to ensure you don’t lose coverage on a technicality.
