AC Maintenance in Spring Is the Best Way to Save Money on Cooling

We experienced a colder than usual winter here in Southern California. That may sound funny to someone who lives in a part of the country where temperatures are below freezing for most of the season, but it certainly felt cold to us to have temperatures in the high 40s during the day. We’re all eager to get to the warmer weather… and that means some of us may not be planning for it.

We think it’s more important than ever to remind our customers and future customers about scheduling maintenance for their air conditioning systems in spring. Our maintenance plan makes it easy to have this essential job done (we’ll even send you a reminder!), so if you haven’t had a look at what the program offers you, take some time right now. We promise you, it’s worth it!

“Why Is It Worth It?”

Good question! We can list plenty of reasons, such as how maintenance helps prevent an emergency breakdown during the summer and provides peace of mind to make the summer even more enjoyable. But right now, we’re focusing on how investing in maintenance saves you money, both long and short-term.

  • Better energy efficiency! Energy efficiency is how well an air conditioner turns electrical power into cooling. It is measured as the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating. The higher the SEER, the less you can expect to pay to cool your house. Maintenance prevents SEER from dropping. Without maintenance, SEER will decline by 5% or more each year.
  • Fewer Repair Costs! Repairs for a broken air conditioner can get steep, and they’ll add up over the years. Maintenance, however, can stop 85% of the repairs an AC might need over its service life. That can mean saving a few thousand dollars over the time you have your air conditioner. You’ll have greater convenience as well when you don’t have to keep calling for repairs.
  • Long System Life! How long do you want your AC to last? As long as possible, of course! Maintenance is the best way to help your AC give you many years of cooling so you don’t have to spend money on an early replacement. Having to buy a new air conditioner before it’s time is a major expense.
  • Keep the Warranty Current! Your AC may fail on you because of a manufacturer’s fault. If this happens, the equipment warranty will cover the repairs and replacement costs. But to keep the warranty current, you’ll need to have regular maintenance.

There are additional benefits through our maintenance club, such as a 20% savings on necessary repairs, access to special dollar deals, and priority scheduling so you can jump to the front of the line during busy times.
