Why Should I Have My Air Conditioner Serviced Every Year Even If It Is Working Fine?
By: First Choice Air on May 2, 2014
Think of all of the things that you have serviced on a regular basis. Your car needs oil changes, and a wash every now and then right? Your oven needs to be cleaned from time to time. Your windows need to be cleaned, your house has to be washed, and your clothes need to go to the dry cleaning. You never question the need for these types of service, yet many people still don’t realize how important it is to maintain your air conditioner and heating system with an annual service each year.
Obviously your air conditioner and/or furnace are indeed tough pieces of machinery. They are unequivocally built to last. In fact, they are designed to withstand moderate to severe abuse in a manner of speaking. Consider the triple digit temperatures that we routinely experience in the San Fernando Valley each summer. Your air conditioner was designed to take air that hot, and cool it to pleasant temperatures day after day after day. Still it only makes sense that any type of machine or appliance that has to work 24/7 for weeks at a time would benefit from a bit of TLC. Scheduling an annual service of your air conditioning systems is likely to have all sorts of benefits. Consider that air conditioning systems lose efficiency over time. In fact they may lose as much as 5% of their efficiency each year. So realistically an air conditioner that you bought 5 years ago, but has never been serviced may very well be operating at only 75% of its intended efficiency. Fortunately a yearly service from the experts at First Choice Air can help keep the air conditioner in your Southern California home or office operating at 95% even as the years tick by.
In addition to making sure that your air conditioner is working to its best capacity, you’ll also notice that your energy bills are reduced through regular maintenance of your air conditioning system. That basically offsets the price of the annual service call. Even better, regular maintenance by a licensed, and insured HVAC professional will almost certainly prolong the life of your air conditioning system, which will save you additional money.
