Every Spring homeowners make the decision on whether to call a professional for air conditioner maintenance. With seasonal bills like lawn care or gutter cleaning, it’s important for home to figure out which services are essential.
To save money, saavy homeowners evaluate home maintenance they can do themselves vs. tasks they need a professional for. If you need help estimating costs you can use a free tool like NerdWallet’s Cost of Home Ownership Calculator to see how you can save.
Is Air Conditioner Maintenance Necessary?
Should you prioritize AC system care? It may seem okay to skip especially if your air conditioner is “running fine”. Still, it’s smarter to call a professional to evaluate your system. The money you spend on maintenance will cost less than repairing or replacing an unmaintained system.
During your maintenance visit, an RSC technician can help you address any concerns and recommend efficiency upgrades to help you feel more comfortable in your home. These upgrades typically help you save on your energy bill as well.
How Often Does a Home HVAC System Need Maintenance?
We recommend annual maintenance for your home HVAC system, as it is a piece of equipment that is run daily in most homes. A dirty coil and other worn components of your system will result in decreased efficiency and comfort, higher energy bills, as well as stress on the equipment which can lead to early system failure.
At a minimum, you should change the air filters each season. But if that’s the only thing you do, there is a lot that you’re missing! Take the time to review our ac maintenance checklist, and please call if you have any questions.
While we encourage homeowner general upkeep, the fact is each system is unique. It ages uniquely, and it’s located uniquely within a property. This means each system has the potential for more specific operating issues that a general checklist might not cover. This is where a professional technician can notice an issue that you might not see.
