Don’t Forget Your AC Maintenance!


Your air conditioner is a complex machine with a lot of components. It worked hard all last summer keeping your home cool. Then it sat around all winter, disused and collecting dust. Now you want it to start working hard again? It deserves some love! More importantly, you just won’t get the performance you’re hoping for if you don’t take care of your air conditioner.

This means you need to get professional maintenance. You’ll want to schedule that right away, before the summer gets any hotter, if you haven’t done it already. It might be the most important thing you do this spring, with the widest-ranging benefits. Why is it so important to have AC maintenance done every single year? There are several reasons, and we’re happy to explain them.

Health and Safety

While an air conditioner generally doesn’t pose as much of a safety hazard as, say, a gas-burning furnace that doesn’t receive proper maintenance, there are some risks. It’s an electrical appliance, so if it deteriorates or is damaged, it could cause an electric shock or a fire. Also, dust, allergens, mold, bacteria, and more can accumulate in the unit and condensate pan and need to be thoroughly cleaned out.

Efficiency and Performance

To cool your home effectively without using an excess of energy and driving your electric bill through the roof, your air conditioner needs to be clean, with well-lubricated moving parts and every component in good working order. Your maintenance technician will clean, grease, inspect, and test the components so that you’ll have plentiful cooling power without increasing utility bills.

Repair Needs and Longevity

An air conditioner that doesn’t receive basic maintenance won’t have minor issues cleared up before they cause big problems. This means there will be a much higher likelihood of the air conditioner needing repairs in the near future. And because all the dust, lack of lubrication, and minor problems put strain on many parts of the system, it simply won’t last as long as it should. Don’t let this happen to you!

Warranty Compliance

A warranty can save you from unnecessary costs related to your air conditioner. For example, if a part fails because of a manufacturing issue, the manufacturer could be held accountable. They might pay for the replacement part. They might even pay for the labor of the repair! But AC warranty agreements generally require that the unit receive annual professional maintenance, without which you won’t receive this benefit.

As you can see, there are many benefits to AC system maintenance in Mountain Iron, MN. And because of all these other benefits, there’s one more excellent reason to have that maintenance done: peace of mind. You won’t need to worry about safety hazards, rising electric bills, poor AC performance, breakdowns during heat waves, a shortened system life, or a voided warranty. And peace of mind is priceless.
