Little Maintenance Checks on Your A/C Can Mean Avoiding Big (and Expensive) Surprises

Do you really need maintenance on your air conditioner every year? The simple answer from Seider Heating, Plumbing & Electrical is yes! The number one reason for an annual checkup and unit cleaning is just common sense. Without regular maintenance, you’ll see a steady decline in air conditioning performance while your utility bills increase!

We know that air conditioners often lose their efficiency as they age—especially if they have not been regularly maintained. Homeowners who have an annual checkup by a heating and cooling professional like Seider experience fewer breakdowns than those who don’t. Regular maintenance keeps your air conditioner running as efficiently as possible, in addition to saving you money by extending the unit’s life. All in all, annual checkups are well worth the money for the simple reason that they can reveal potential concerns before they become big problems—often with big price tags attached.

Two Ways to Be Smart and Save!

The most important maintenance you can perform on your own to ensure the efficiency of your air conditioner is to routinely replace or clean its filters. In fact, replacing a dirty filter with a clean one can lower your air conditioner’s energy consumption by five to 15 percent.

If you haven’t had your air conditioning system cleaned and checked within the last 12 months, call us to schedule an appointment. Be sure to ask about our Preferred Service Agreement Plan.
