When’s the Last Time You Had Air Conditioner Maintenance?

It’s easy for routine air conditioning maintenance to slip your mind. You only have to schedule the service once a year, and it’s easy for the weeks and months to blur together. If you were wondering when the last time you had your air conditioner serviced was, that probably means it’s time to schedule an appointment.

AC maintenance in Skokie is easy when you have our team to help. Our experts know exactly what they’re doing and what to look for during an AC inspection at your home. Learn why annual AC service is so important, and why you need to be thinking about it right now. 

DIY Air Conditioner Service

The only AC maintenance you should be doing yourself is changing your air filter monthly. Trying to complete other DIY projects with your AC can void your manufacturer’s warranty. Plus, you can do more damage than good if you don’t know exactly how to fix air conditioner problems.

Instead, leave it to our expert team. We’ve been doing this for decades and have specialized training that allows us to work with air conditioning systems, electrical power, and even your gas lines if you have a gas HVAC system. 

Benefits of Professional AC Service

There are many reasons that you want to schedule annual AC service. One of the top reasons is that your HVAC system will last longer and need fewer repairs. When you think about anything else in your home and life, you know that taking care of something well means that it lasts longer. The same is true for your AC unit. When you invest in annual maintenance, you’re investing in the life of your air conditioner.

Many homeowners want to skip out on maintenance because they don’t have anything specifically wrong that needs to be fixed. However, this is a common misconception. Your AC can have problems that you don’t even realize are there. Annual maintenance is actually designed to fix minor AC problems before they become big AC problems.

Energy Efficiency 

Aside from those obvious benefits, you also improve your AC’s energy efficiency. The smallest problems can make your AC work harder and increase energy bills. But the opposite is also true. The smallest tweaks can greatly improve your AC’s energy efficiency to lower your energy bills.

But it’s not just about money. When your unit’s more energy efficient, it doesn’t have to work as hard to produce great results. When there’s less pressure on your system, it can work better and take on less wear and tear, which also extends its lifespan. 

Air Quality

Annual service is also an opportunity to clean out your system. Despite even the very best air filters and airtight ductwork seals, dust can still get in. And every time, dust and dirt can build up and then recirculate back through your home. The cycle continues as dust and dirt increase at a quicker rate. But when we clean the inside of your system annually, it reduces the dust and dirt inside the system, therefore reducing some of the dust and dirt in your home, too.
