How Important Is Air Conditioning Maintenance?

People often take fastidious care of their automobiles with regular inspections and tune-ups. However, many other important devices in their lives often go without necessary maintenance. Consider the air conditioner: it’s a vital part of life in a state that can get as hot as Utah, but many homeowners neglect to have their ACs professionally serviced each spring.

Annual air conditioning maintenance isn’t an extra service: it’s mandatory if you want to get efficient and effective cooling from your system, and if you want it to last for more than a few years before it needs to be replaced. It’s not difficult to schedule, either. Just call a reputable HVAC company, like At Your Service Plumbing, Heating & Air, and ask about a regular maintenance program for your air conditioning system in Salt Lake City, UT. The maintenance session will usually take less than an hour and pays off with enormous benefits.

Here Are Some Important Things To Know About Air Conditioning Maintenance:

  • An AC that goes without maintenance for one year will begin to perform 20% less efficiently on average. Each year after that will see a further 5% drop in efficiency. So if you have a 20 SEER unit, it will only take three years for it to starting performing like a 15 SEER unit. Studies show that a regularly maintained unit will keep 95% of its efficiency for most of its service life.
  • The average lifespan of a central air conditioning system with regular maintenance is 10–15 years. The average lifespan without maintenance is 5–7 years.
  • Repair needs will skyrocket the longer an AC goes without an annual maintenance session. Air conditioners that receive regular inspections and tune-ups rarely need to have repair service during the first 5 years of operation.

Now, when you take the facts above, also consider this: any time an air conditioner isn’t running at its best, it will not provide the maximum level of comfort. So, along with increasing system longevity, fending off repairs, and saving money, regular preventive maintenance will make an air conditioner better at its job—which is keeping you cool during a Salt Lake City summer.

Although you can schedule maintenance any time of the year if you’ve fallen behind, spring is the usual time when most homeowners have it done: it helps prepare the system for the summer. Call At Your Service Plumbing, Heating & Air today and ask about our maintenance services for air conditioning in Salt Lake City, UT. Our NATE-certified technicians will see that you receive top quality inspections and tune-ups. (And remember to maintain your heater during the fall!)

During this very unusual time, we have put a plan in place to do our part to help keep our community safe. First and foremost, we are going to stay CALM, PATIENT, KIND, and POSITIVE!

There is much to consider regarding the COVID-19 virus (Coronavirus) and its possible transmission in your home. While there are various and effective indoor air quality measures available to help protect your safety, including duct sanitization, ultraviolet (UV) germicidal light treatment, and HEPA air filters, they alone cannot protect from all forms of COVID-19 transmission. It is important to follow all official guidelines for preventing the spread of this virus.

Because we have a direct impact on the indoor environment, here are practical steps we are going to take to keep people safe:

  • Wash our hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and water
  • Cover our nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing
  • Wash our uniforms every day including cleaning our belts
  • Stay home if we are feeling sick
  • Offer a warm smile and friendly greeting instead of a handshake
  • Wear shoe covers and latex gloves in homes and businesses
  • Wipe down surfaces and equipment touched in a client’s home with disinfectant wipes
  • Wipe down door handles, steering wheels, gear shift lever every day
  • Wipe down pens, clipboards, tablets, cell phones, and anything else passes between techs and clients.
  • We have masks on each truck and will wear them at client’s discretion (Currently the CDC does not recommend that people wear masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19)
  • We are complying with all recommendations and guidelines from state agencies and will be proactive in our efforts to see that our team members and clients are protected.

As the situation unfolds, we will take each day one at a time and ensure we are being smart, supportive, and helping all those we can in our community.

Thank you for your continued support!
