Add air conditioner maintenance to your calendar!

Springtime is maintenance time here at Seider Heating, Plumbing & Electrical. Temperatures transition from cool to warm and that means you’ll need your A/C before long. There are many reasons why we recommend routine service to all our customers—and four major reasons why you should never skip annual air conditioner maintenance.

Safety First

Your air conditioner sits idle for roughly six months every fall and winter. That’s a long time for mechanical parts to be inactive and collect debris. How do you know if your A/C is ready and in safe working condition for the cooling season? You can’t be 100 percent sure unless you schedule a professional inspection.

Our certified technicians can find and fix mechanical and electrical issues—like a worn out compressor and outdated wiring—that are often undetectable during a quick once-over. They’ll also eliminate bacteria, fungi, and pollen buildup that can make you sick. It’s best to put your family’s safety first and make the call for a tuneup before you really need your system.

Energy Costs

It’s no secret that if you skip air conditioner maintenance, you’re going to pay more on energy bills. Your system can lose up to 10 percent of its efficiency each year it goes without a thorough cleaning and inspection. It gets bogged down with debris, has to work overtime to move air throughout your home, and can’t run efficiently. Keep an eye on your monthly cooling bills. If they’re on the rise, that’s a clear sign your system is struggling and needs a tuneup.

Catch Problems Early

Air conditioner breakdowns are common as a system ages and can be quite expensive if not caught early. Experienced technicians, like those at Seider, know exactly what to look for during a routine inspection. Our hope is that your system doesn’t have any problems, but if it does, scheduling maintenance can minimize repair costs and system damage. If you skip maintenance and problems aren’t found early, you could face system failure.

Longer System Life

Routine air conditioner clean and checks are the secret to a longer system lifespan, whether you have a Carrier® system or another brand. Our pros will thoroughly inspect and clean moving parts—or replace them as needed—to help your system run at its best for longer. The average air conditioner lifespan is 15 to 20 years, but with regular maintenance, some can run safely and efficiently for 25 years or more. Avoid replacement for as long as possible with an affordable tuneup once a year.
