Now that the spring season is upon us here in Northeast Ohio, it’s time to schedule seasonal maintenance for your HVAC system. These twice-annual maintenance visits – one in the spring and one in the fall – will ensure your system continues to work as well as it can and will also increase its lifespan! Our expert team discusses the reasons why springtime maintenance is essential.
We all tend to get together more often during the warmer months of the year, and nobody wants an AC breakdown to interrupt the festivities. Having your central air conditioning system inspected during the spring ensures that problems are found and fixed before the dog days of summer arrive. Believe it or not, 85% of air conditioning repairs can be prevented with our 47-point annual AC maintenance!
Have greater peace of mind and confidence going into summer – call our team at Hey Neighbor Heating & Cooling at 844-HEY-NEIGHBOR to perform regular maintenance on your HVAC system!
Optimal energy efficiency
As your air conditioning system ages, its parts and components experience wear and tear. Your system begins to lose efficiency and ultimately costs more to operate.
Seasonal maintenance reduces wear on your system, so it won’t age as rapidly. If our factory-trained professionals maintain your AC system annually, it should retain around 95% of its efficiency for most of its lifetime.
Longer working life
Unfortunately, no matter how well they’re cared for, air conditioners don’t last forever. Your unit will need to be replaced eventually, but if you schedule spring maintenance each year, your central air conditioning system could last considerably longer than the manufacturer’s estimated lifespan.
The lifespans of most HVAC systems are around 15 years. Without seasonal maintenance, your system’s life could be cut in half, and you could end up with a mere 5-8 years of service before it’s time for major repairs or a replacement. It’s a simple decision – have seasonal HVAC maintenance performed and save yourself a significant expense!
Protect your warranty
Most HVAC manufacturers require regular maintenance to validate their warranty. If you don’t maintain your AC system as needed, when your system needs repair, the costs will come from your wallet, not the manufacturer’s.
When our professional, factory-trained HVAC technicians perform a seasonal 47-point inspection and maintenance, we’ll keep it in optimal working condition and supply the paperwork you need to keep up your end of the manufacturer warranty agreement.
Improve your air quality
Your cooling system collects dust, debris, and other airborne pollutants during the cooler months. When you turn your AC on for the first time in the spring, these potentially harmful particles circulate throughout your home.
Refrigerant level testing is included in our seasonal maintenance visits here at Hey Neighbor Heating & Cooling, and we’ll ensure your system is clean before you turn it back on – creating healthier indoor air quality in your home.
Test your AC
Before the heat of summer arrives, it’s a good idea to turn on your AC and let it run for a bit. This simple step can help you discover any potential issues with your system and allow you time to schedule maintenance or repairs before the problem causes you a headache when you need cooling the most.
