Risks of Skipping Out on AC Maintenance

We know that it can be tempting to save a little bit of money and skip out on AC maintenance if your air conditioner seems like it’s working great. However, this can leave you at risk for more problems in the years to come. Air conditioning maintenance is an important service, even when your unit is working great without any signs of problems.

After all, air conditioning problems can be very quiet and not noticeable… until they’re significant. You can keep reading to learn more about the steps we take during a professional maintenance appointment and why it is so important for your air conditioner’s efficiency and lifespan. Then give our team a call to schedule your maintenance appointment or air conditioning repair in Chestermere.

Skipping out on air conditioner maintenance doesn’t always have immediate effects, especially if you have a newer air conditioner to begin with. But by the time you begin to experience problems, the damage is not always reversible. Inefficient operation can leave lasting damage inside of your air conditioner that leads to higher energy costs and a shorter overall lifespan.

High Energy Costs

Without regular maintenance to keep up with caring for the individual components inside of your air conditioner, energy costs can begin going up. This happens because parts wear out and you don’t even realize it until they begin to produce obvious signs like loud noises or changes in how your air conditioner operates.

Increasing energy costs is actually one of the earlier signs of air conditioner problems. You may be tempted to ignore it if your energy costs are not significantly higher, but if you haven’t adjusted your thermostat settings significantly, you shouldn’t be seeing a spike in energy use.

Shorter Lifespan

When you don’t take care of your air conditioner, you also risk having to replace it sooner. This is because parts can wear down faster and damage can spread easier. The average air conditioner lasts between 10 and 15 years, but you’re likely to get closer to only 8-9 years out of your air conditioner without annual maintenance.

And here’s the thing: Your AC likely comes with a manufacturer’s warranty. So if anything major goes wrong the time when your AC is under warranty, your AC has some level of protection. However, most manufacturer’s warranties have a stipulation that you, as the homeowner, must keep up with annual maintenance each year or else the warranty is voided.
