Spring is here, and for the attentive homeowner, this means a few things. Among several areas you might consider this time of year, looking into basic inspection and maintenance for your air conditioning system is a prudent move with the summer just around the corner.

At All Hours Plumbing, we’re here to help. Our air conditioning repair and installation services can keep you from any cooling concerns when you need them the most. Let’s look at a few benefits of yearly air conditioner maintenance, both short-term and long-term.

Improve Efficiency

A thorough inspection and tune-up of your AC system include cleaning, testing and adjusting the entire system. As the years wear on them, every air conditioner naturally loses some efficiency – this only happens faster if they aren’t maintained properly. Having this done once a year can do wonders for lowering your utility bills, and can also have several other important effects that we’ll get to later on.

Extend Life

One such effect is the way yearly service for the air conditioner helps extend its working lifespan. Lack of maintenance will take years off the shelf life of an air conditioner, but on the flip side, regular service can do the opposite – the unit can last longer than the norm, an event that could save you thousands of dollars in the long run.

Avoid Big Future Issues

Another benefit of improving your efficiency now is getting the jump on possible future issues. Air conditioners will naturally develop small, cheap, simple problems that we can address during these service appointments – but if you neglect these, they can turn into big issues that are far more costly and time-consuming.

Plan for Replacement

Finally, having yearly service allows you to be prepared when it’s eventually time to replace your AC system. No unit will last forever, and having a pro view your system each year will allow you to stay on top of when time has run its course and your home is ready for an upgrade.
