We all know that many of the things we use each day are supposed to be serviced frequently to keep them in good condition. Due to the busyness of day-to-day life, some of those service visits just don’t happen. In this article, we’d like to help you understand the importance of annual AC service by looking at five key reasons that it will benefit your system.
Once you are convinced of the importance of annual A/C maintenance, the next step is to schedule an appointment – and that can be done with Walker Air • Plumbing • Electric. We have all the knowledge and experience needed for this kind of work, and we always offer fair pricing to our customers. We’d love to serve you soon!
#1 – Avoid Inconvenient Issues
When you schedule an annual service visit for your air conditioning system, you’ll get to pick when that visit occurs. You can contact Walker and figure out when our team can come visit your property while keeping in mind your personal schedule and what works best for you and your family. You’ll still have to make time for it, of course, but you can do it on your terms.
That’s not really the case if your air conditioning system breaks down and you need to have it repaired quickly to get back up and running. In that case, you’ll have to take care of the matter as soon as possible. So, it’s better to stay ahead of the game by scheduling your annual service to avoid surprise problems than to skip it and deal with whatever comes up later.
#2 – Get a Longer Lifespan
Consistently having your air conditioner serviced year after year is a great way to extend the life of the system as a whole. Modern air conditioning equipment can last an impressively long time, but you are unlikely to fulfill that potential if you skip over maintenance visits and just assume that the system will keep working well on its own. To get the best possible lifespan out of the system, and to minimize the number of repairs that are required along the way, make it a point to schedule a service visit each and every year.
#3 – It Actually Saves You Money
Without a doubt, the number one reason people skip annual service visits is because they don’t want to spend the money on the work. Since the system is already functioning, they see it as a waste to have the service performed, and it doesn’t get done in the end. What that line of thinking misses, however, is the important fact that servicing your air conditioner annually is likely to save money in the long run.
This point actually combines the thinking from the two points we already discussed above. You can save money through the avoidance of persistent repair work, and you can also save by delaying the point at which you need to buy all new air conditioning equipment. With both of those points working in your favor, the cost of an annual service visit will quickly pale in comparison.
#4 – Safety Considerations
We tend to take the safety of air conditioners for granted, and generally speaking, they are quite safe. With that said, there is power at play here, and compressed refrigerant, so it’s important to make sure the system is in safe working order before it is used day after day. If you never have anyone look at your system for years on end, there could be safety issues developing that you would know about until it is too late. Annual service visits will put professional eyes and hands on your system so anything concerning will be caught and repaired appropriately.
#5 – Enjoy Better Performance
Finally, you can simply expect to get better performance from your air conditioner when it is serviced annually. It will run more efficiently, cool your space more quickly, and just do a better job overall. Given the modest cost of a professional service visit from Walker, and how fast we can get it done, this is a very easy choice. We also have our Walker Annual Maintenance Plan (WAM Plan) to knock down the cost and keep your systems in working order.
