Why Orlando Area Homeowners Should Consider an Annual AC Maintenance Agreement
Blog Updated: 12/16/2021
The summers in Florida are long, hot and can be stressful for your air conditioning unit. We have all been in the situation where our air conditioner has gone out leaving us to run for the ice packs, fans and swimwear as you wait for an AC repair technician. Considering the monetary investment of installing a new residential ac system, every Orlando homeowner should consider the importance of AC maintenance. Here is why Orlando area homeowners should consider an annual AC maintenance agreement.
What is an Annual AC Maintenance Agreement?
Scott’s Heating and Air Conditioning’s annual ac maintenance agreement is simply a way for us to help you take care of your ac system to give it the best efficiency and longevity. We come out to your home two times a year- typically in the early spring and late fall where we perform a number of tests, checks and improvements to your air conditioning system. It includes our 20 Point AC Tune-Up.
Do I Really Need an Annual AC Maintenance Agreement?
Of course, no homeowner NEEDS an AC maintenance agreement. However, choosing not to properly maintain your air conditioning unit could lead to a host of problems that will cause aggravation, cost money and lead to some uncomfortable days without cooling. Just like regular car maintenance, AC maintenance have a number of benefits that shouldn’t be ignored.
What are the Benefits of an Annual AC Maintenance Agreement?
Increasing the Lifespan of Your AC Unit
According to Bryant, an ac unit can last between 10-20 years. Notice the 10-year difference? If you want your air conditioning system to live closer to the 20-year mark, you should commit to regular ac maintenance.
Lower Energy Bills
A well-maintained ac system is an efficient ac unit. Believe it or not, dirt and grime buildup is the #1 reason why AC systems shut down. Ensuring that your drain lines are clear, filters are replaced as well as the rest of the items on the 20-point tune-up can make a major difference in performance.
Roughly 80% of costly repairs can be avoided with regular maintenance.
Some AC repairs can be costly. Replacing an evaporator coil, compressor or fan motor will likely cost you hundreds of dollars. How can most of these repairs be avoided? Regular cleaning and maintenance.
Noticing a trend? AC maintenance can save you money. A well-maintained system is one that doesn’t need to be repaired quite as often. Have one of our trusted, NATE Certified technicians inspect your ac system regularly to ensure all parts are functioning properly.
Better Indoor Air Quality
Home air is notoriously worse than outside air. In fact, it’s 2-5 times worse according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Bad air quality can lead to a host of diseases and conditions that can reduce you or your family’s quality of life.
What does this have to do with your air conditioning unit? Along with heating and cooling your home, air conditioners also help to clean the air of toxins, dust, dirt and other pollutants. With a majority of people spending more time at home lately, air quality cannot be ignored.
Keep Your System Running Smooth All Year Long
In some ways, cars and HVAC systems are very much alike. As complex pieces of machinery with many intertwined parts, neither one rarely breaks down out of the blue. Usually, problems fester – quietly and below your radar – before they demand your attention. In this way, an AC maintenance agreement with Scott’s Heating & Air Conditioning can alert you before the unexpected takes you – and your wallet – for a nasty ride.
