Why Maintenance Is Important for Your Investment in an Air Conditioning System

When you have a new air conditioning system installed for your house, you are making an investment in your family’s long-term comfort. Like any investment, you want to receive the most return from it, and that means an air conditioner that will 1) work for many years, hopefully exceeding its estimated lifespan; 2) cost you as little in repairs as possible, and 3) keep up a high level of energy efficiency so that you don’t have to pay more than necessary to cool your home.

However, you can’t simply leave your air conditioner alone and expect to receive this kind of return on investment. Air conditioners must have annual maintenance from professionals. Here is how this protects your investment in a central air conditioner:

  • It extends the lifespan of the system. The wear and tear over just a year are enough to shorten the service life of an AC. With proper care, most air conditioners can last 15 years or even more. Without it, you might end up needing to replace the system after only a few years.
  • It helps prevent repair problems. Around 85% of the repairs that an air conditioning system may require can be avoided thanks to professional maintenance. That will save you a lot of money, and it can also keep you from getting stuck with a malfunctioning AC on a hot day.
  • It helps the air conditioner retain its energy efficiency. For each year that an AC goes without maintenance, it will lose on average 5% of its efficiency rating. In only a few years, you could be paying 25% more for cooling your home than you once did. Regular maintenance will help an air conditioner keep 95% of its efficiency through its lifespan.
