Homeowners in Harrisonburg, VA and throughout the Shenandoah Valley are gearing up to enjoy the summer months that will be here before you know it. While some are plotting out ways in which to get outside and take advantage of the warm, sunny weather, others are crossing their fingers and hoping that their cooling systems will be able to keep up. One of the most effective ways to nip air conditioning related issues in the bud is to schedule early maintenance, and there’s no better time than now to pick up the phone.
1. Prevent Emergency Breakdown
If you were to an install a new cooling system tomorrow, the last thing you would likely think about is when it’s going to break down unexpectedly on you. It’s sort of like driving a new car off the lot—no one is thinking about how many years it will be until it can’t run the way it used to anymore.
Air conditioners are no different, as even the best units need to be maintained regularly to operate at peak performance. Otherwise, the chances that a cooling system might break down on one of the hottest days of the summer are all too real.
Schedule preventative maintenance and this threat largely disappears.
2. Reduce Your Cooling Bills This Summer
Have you ever considered the fact that you might be paying more than you should for your summer energy bills? It could have something to do with the fact that your air conditioner is in desperate need of maintenance.
Reducing your cooling bills is a distinct possibility if your air conditioner hasn’t been serviced in years, as you may be spending 30% or more than what a well-maintained system would end up costing you each month. The solution can be found in preventative maintenance, and a single visit can pay for itself in energy savings over the course of the summer.
3. Improve Indoor Air Quality
Let’s face it—everyone deserves to know that the air they’re breathing at home is clean and clear. Indoor air quality (IAQ) issues affect homes of all shapes and sizes, however, and for those who suffer from allergies or asthma, this can be a real threat. Changing your air filter during air conditioning maintenance ensures it isn’t distributing dust and other contaminants throughout your home.
