Milwaukee’s summers are uncomfortably hot, causing air conditioning to become more of a necessity than a convenience. Want to stay cool and help your AC run smoothly all summer long? Check out these 5 reasons why you need professional HVAC maintenance to beat the heat!
Professional maintenance arguably is the most undervalued service that HVAC companies provide. There is a common misconception that maintenance is unnecessary and a waste of money. As the old adage goes, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” right?
We want you to understand that this is not the case. Your home cooling system is a very complex machine with hundreds of small interworking components. With so many gadgets working together at once, there are plenty of opportunities for malfunction.
Think of your AC unit like your car. It is a large machine that runs when all of the parts work together the way that they are supposed to. Now, imagine if you didn’t get an oil change or have your car serviced. I’m sure we can all agree that eventually something would go wrong. The same applies to your air conditioner.
Our goal is to educate you concerning the truth about HVAC maintenance. Check out our 5 reasons below that professional air conditioning maintenance is necessary this summer!
5 Reasons to Get Your AC Unit Serviced
1. Reduced Energy Costs
Many homeowners think that skipping out on HVAC maintenance means that they’re saving money. On the contrary, HVAC maintenance actually saves money. The low cost of HVAC maintenance pays for itself and more in reduced energy costs.
A well-maintained air conditioner means that it is operating at peak efficiency, which ultimately saves money due to less electricity used. This is better for your wallet and the environment. Reduce your monthly energy costs by subscribing to professional HVAC maintenance.
2. Improved IAQ
Indoor air quality (IAQ) is another HVAC topic that is often overlooked, yet its importance simply cannot be overstressed. Indoor air quality is a factor in the health of your entire family. Immediate effects of poor indoor air quality include coughing, sneezing, watery eyes, fatigue, headaches, and upper respiratory congestion. Long-term effects of poor indoor air quality are more serious; poor IAQ can increase one’s risk of serious respiratory diseases and cancer.
Research has shown that we spend just over 90 percent of our time indoors. Because we spend so much of our lives indoors, it’s crucial that the air we breathe is pure, clean, and healthy. Taking a proactive approach to HVAC maintenance translates to improved indoor air quality. For more information about how to improve your IAQ, check out or indoor air quality page!
An unmaintained HVAC unit is a breeding ground for dirt, mold, and bacteria. Having clean air filters and coils means that your HVAC system will circulate clean air that is healthy to breathe for the entire family. Some air filters are even capable of protecting you from allergens, bacteria, and viruses.
3. Lengthened Life Span
Air conditioners are built to last. However, they can’t continue operating to their full potential on their own. Normal operation leads to wear and tear that accumulates over time. Because parts wear out over time, it’s important to catch parts that are corroding before they completely malfunction. Not only does this save you from an unexpected breakdown, but also it is much more affordable.
Modern HVAC equipment can easily last for quite a bit over 10 years. The key to an HVAC system that lasts is standard upkeep and maintenance. There are simple DIY tips, such as regularly changing your air filters and ensuring your outdoor unit is clean, that can make a significant difference in the life of your system.
Do your part to protect your investment in your home’s cooling system by subscribing to professional maintenance on a regular basis. Professional maintenance services unlock your air conditioner’s true potential and complete life span.
4. Optimized Efficiency
Industry research has shown that unmaintained units can take up to 20 percent more energy to perform at the same level as their well-maintained counterparts. This is terrible for you and your unit. Inefficient systems waste money, put unnecessary strain on the environment, and lead to more wear and tear.
With each passing year, efficiency becomes a higher priority. Protecting the environment is a big concern for many individuals, companies, and governments. By taking advantage of the affordable, professional maintenance services from TemperaturePro, you can do your part in remaining at peak efficiency and protecting the environment.
As mentioned above, air conditioners operating at peak efficiency save money and do not place unnecessary strain on the environment. Regularly scheduled HVAC maintenance is well worth the cost.
5. Minimized Emergency Repairs
One of the worst HVAC-related situations to be in is a broken air conditioner during the peak of summer. Outages during peak temperatures can quickly go from an inconvenience to an emergency. While we do offer emergency services to get you out of a situation like this quickly and affordably, we want to help you prevent this from happening.
Protecting yourself by minimizing the risk of emergency HVAC situations should be a priority to every homeowner. Maintenance services offer solutions to the dangers of unmaintained systems. Fortunately, we’ve made the process simple. You don’t have to deal with the stress of an unmaintained system or the headache of trying to figure out HVAC maintenance on your own; that’s what we’re for.
Professional maintenance is the key to detecting minor HVAC problems as they begin to develop. The low cost of a maintenance plan is a far more preferable option than the higher cost of a repair. Work with us to help protect your system from unexpected breakdowns.
