Spring AC Maintenance and Why You Need It
Even though we’ve already seen temperatures in the mid 80’s here in Columbia, South Carolina, we know that springtime is only the beginning and that the temperatures and the humidity will only continue to climb from here. That is why spring is such an important time for all heating and air conditioning contractors. It’s the time when we start to change from working on broken heating systems and begin to help our customers prepare their Columbia, South Carolina home for the summer heat.
During the summer, we keep busy with working on repairing AC units to keep our customers cool. Because all HVAC contractors are busy in the summer taking care of emergency AC issues, spring is the perfect time to perform maintenance to avoid major breakdowns in the summer when you need your AC unit the most. Below are the four biggest benefits you and your family will enjoy when you schedule preventative AC maintenance for your Columbia, South Carolina home this spring.
Benefits of Spring Air Conditioning Maintenance
- Increased System Lifespan: It’s no secret that your air conditioner is not a machine you will have forever. But if you are consistent with your AC maintenance, your AC unit can last up to and possibly beyond the manufacturer’s estimated service life. With regular maintenance, you can expect your AC unit last around 12-15 years. Without consistent maintenance, your system lifespan can drop by half the estimated system life. Regular maintenance will ensure you are getting what you pay for in your system’s lifespan.
- Peace of Mind: With regular maintenance, you can have peace of mind heading into the summer heat and humidity that your AC unit is working the way it should and that no parts seem to be out of place or not operating efficiently. It’s important to have confidence that you’re AC unit will last you all through the summer without breaking down and regular maintenance from E.F. Martin provides that confidence.
- Increase Efficiency: Finally, regular maintenance will help to increase your AC efficiency. When your system wears down, your system loses efficiency and in turn, costs more money to run effectively. Maintenance reduces the wear and tear on your system so it won’t age as fast as it would without maintenance. You will be saving money in the long run while maintaining home comfort when you need it the most.
