Keeping the air conditioner in your Miami, Florida, home well-maintained is necessary in order to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. Regular maintenance is also vital to improve your
system’s longevity. What you may not know is that without regular maintenance, you will not only have problems with comfort but also additional expenses. Check out the ways that failing to have regular AC maintenance can cost you.
Higher Energy Bills
Even if your air conditioner seems to be running okay, it does not mean it is running efficiently. One of the easiest ways to tell that efficiency is being affected is by higher-than-normal utility bills. During an AC tune-up, your system will have the filter replaced and will be thoroughly cleaned, checked for repairs, and inspected for airflow and other issues that can affect efficiency. A clean and well-maintained system will use less energy.
More Costly Repairs
When your system is poorly maintained, it can lead to wear and tear, resulting in more repair calls. When you have regular maintenance, your technician will thoroughly inspect all of the parts of your system to check for wear and make sure that they are functioning properly. They will be able to detect small problems such as worn belts, broken bearings, or other small repair problems that can lead to more major concerns when left unaddressed.
The Cost of a New Installation
A well-maintained system will last longer. Regular service can also catch minor problems that, when left unaddressed, can cause a domino effect that can lead to other component failures until your system fully breaks down, resulting in the need to have the system replaced. Additionally, your technician can also let you know how much more life you can expect from your system, which can allow you time to budget for a new installation.
