AC maintenance is critical for getting the longest life possible from your system.
If you were to drive your vehicle for a year or more without changing the oil, would you expect the engine to fail? It might not fail completely, but you would definitely shorten its life. You would also most likely experience reduced performance and fuel efficiency because the engine needs to work harder when it isn’t getting the lubrication it needs. At Evergreen Heating & Air LLC, we want to share with you that your Statesville, North Carolina home’s air conditioner has the same need for regular maintenance and there are the same potential serious outcomes of not doing so.
AC maintenance is critical for getting the longest life possible from your system. Each year that you skip it, you can shave several weeks off its life. Even a newer system can break down if it hasn’t been properly maintained, and the cost for the AC repair could be more than an AC maintenance visit. Also, if the system is working harder than necessary, not only is it wearing itself out, but it is affecting your utility bill. The energy savings you can expect over a season by having AC maintenance completed can be more than you might think.
The last reason to be sure you take care of AC maintenance each year is to have optimal humidity control. Your home will feel more comfortable, and you’ll have less chance of mold activating and colonizing in your home if your AC system is performing as it should to control humidity.
The ideal time for AC maintenance is in the spring to have a reliable and efficient system throughout the summer. However, if it has been a while, now is the time to call. Reach out with any questions that you might have or to schedule an appointment.
