3 Unique Benefits to AC Maintenance
GRmetro Heating and Cooling is a locally owned and operated HVAC company serving homeowners throughout Grand Rapids, Michigan and the surrounding areas.
Look, we know that summer might be dwindling to a close, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be back in full force next year. In fact, summer could potentially be hotter and more humid next year than it was this year. That’s why AC maintenance is still something you might want to consider if you missed out on it in the spring or during the summer.
The truth is that AC maintenance doesn’t have the best reputation in our industry. Some people think it’s a scam, others believe it to be a luxury cost for wealthy homeowners, but both of these are huge mischaracterizations of what it actually is. AC maintenance is a way to set your home comfort up for success in three distinct ways.
It’s also a useful tool in reducing the amount of AC repairs in Wyoming, MI that you might encounter. Keep reading to learn more.
Increase Your Air Conditioner’s Performance
Your air conditioner exists for one reason and one reason only—to keep your home comfortable during the hottest days of the year. If it’s not able to do this, then it might be time to seriously reconsider your air conditioner and what its purpose is in your home.
Many homeowners might be okay with their air conditioners providing a nominal level of cooling, but it could work much better. AC maintenance can help improve your system’s performance to the point where even after 7 years of service, it still works just as new. If you choose one good reason to invest in maintenance, having better cooling power for the summer might be the best one!
Improve AC Efficiency Levels
Efficiency is one of the most important aspects of air conditioning these days. The more efficient your air conditioner is, the less energy it’s going to consume and the cheaper your energy bills are. Therefore, any service that helps reduce energy consumption while keeping cooling power high is going to be worth its weight in gold.
When we perform AC maintenance, we make minor adjustments to your system to ensure it’s working at peak efficiency. We’ll lubricate ball bearings, replace smaller components, and make sure that everything is running efficiently.
Extend the System’s Lifespan and Reduce Repairs
An air conditioner is meant to last between 10-15 years of age. What many manufacturers don’t tell you about this lifespan, is that it will realistically only reach that lifespan with the help of routine maintenance every year. Air conditioners that are unmaintained will be lucky to reach half that age because of excessive wear and tear, stress, and repairs that come up.
Speaking of repairs—AC maintenance is proven to reduce repairs that could spring up on your air conditioner. Sure, it will need one or two throughout its lifespan, but with AC maintenance, we can address repairs before they become major problems. We can fix things and adjust components when we see something isn’t right, and this is usually enough to stop problems in their tracks. Basically, you’ll save money inherently on all the repairs that you won’t need to purchase.
