Owning a home is an expensive endeavor, so paying to fix something that’s not broken probably doesn’t rank high on your list of budget priorities. That’s the attitude we run into with a lot of our customers in the Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Estero, Naples, Marco Island, Lehigh Acres and surrounding area. But when they have their first major, and avoidable, air conditioning repair expense, they start to change their minds about routine maintenance.
Air conditioning maintenance is a small recurring expense that you can see as an investment. It extends the life of your HVAC system and saves you from catastrophic, and very expensive, air conditioning repairs.
A well-maintained AC unit runs at peak efficiency, which means cooler air and lower energy bills for you. Part of routine air conditioning maintenance is cleaning all the components and regularly changing out the filter, both of which are two of the most common culprits behind inefficiency. During the summer months especially, these savings can add up.
No More Budget-Busting AC Repairs
Imagine how disheartening it would be to save up for a family vacation, a new car, etc. only to get the news that your AC unit needs a repair that’s going to wipe out that fund because you didn’t keep up with maintenance. Regular maintenance helps minimize AC catastrophes, so you don’t have to worry about major cash outlays for pricey repairs.
Extend the Life of your HVAC System
Poorly maintained AC units die sooner. That means you’ll be spending thousands of dollars on a replacement AC system far sooner than you would if you had just invested a fraction of that amount in air conditioning maintenance. According to the Department of Energy, the average lifespan for a central AC unit is 15-20 years. Imagine having several thousand dollars for five more years because you paid for a service plan!
