Benefit #1: Prolongs the life of your AC system

On average, an AC system typically lasts 10-15 years.

That being said, if your AC system is not well taken care of, it could wear out or break down sooner.

When one part of your AC system is broken or not working properly, it strains the rest of your system, which can result in other breakdowns or system failure.

Regular maintenance ensures that all parts of your AC are working efficiently and are repaired or replaced if they aren’t, boosting the efficiency of the entire system and preventing an early breakdown.

 

Benefit #2: Reduces energy usage/cost

According to the EIA, the cost of air conditioning accounts for 12% of household energy costs. However, in the Arizona summer, the cost of air conditioning can account for well over 50% of a household’s total electricity usage.

The more efficiently your AC system is working, the less energy it uses, which means lower monthly cooling bills.

If your AC is not maintained, there will likely be parts that are not working as efficiently as they should be. This can affect your whole system, making your AC system work harder, and potentially spiking the cost of your cooling bills.

 

Benefit #3: Helps prevent costly breakdowns

As your AC system ages, certain parts can break down or wear out. If these parts aren’t repaired or replaced, it can lead to breakdowns or system failure, costing you more money in the long run.

For example, an average AC tune-up can range from $70-$250, whereas the price to install an entire AC system is $5,000-$10,000.

Think of it like this: Would you buy a new car and never pay for an oil change? No! You’d be facing unnecessarily expensive repairs down the road if you never invested in your car throughout its lifetime. AC maintenance works the same way.

Paying a small amount now to have a professional make minor repairs or replacements saves you from paying for expensive repairs/replacements down the road.

 

Benefit #4: Protects your AC warranty

Many AC manufacturers require you to have your AC system maintained annually by a professional in order to maintain your parts warranty.

This way, if your AC needs expensive repairs or replacements, your parts warranty could cover some of the cost.
