Why Late Summer Maintenance Matters

We still have a whole second half of the summer ahead of us, so it’s not technically “late” maintenance yet, but some customers are still thinking they can make it all the way to the end without a tune-up. The truth is that this might be a very bad idea.

Did you know that maintenance is a mandatory service for air conditioning systems like central AC units and heat pumps? If this is news to you, then we understand. They sound like optional services since they’re offered completely separately from a new installation or repair, but it’s true. An air conditioner won’t reach its full potential without the help of routine AC maintenance in Worcester County.

Sure, we have special seasonal deals, but this blog post is all about the details of a maintenance plan and how it drastically improves your technology over time. Just make sure you schedule an appointment before the season winds to a close!

The Advantages of Maintenance

We want to start with the advantages of maintenance and not what can happen when you skip it. Perhaps we’re trying to be optimistic, but we don’t like scaring our customers into purchasing a service if they don’t understand it first. Let’s talk about the great benefits you could get from professional maintenance. Even if one of these impacts you the most, the service is still worth it overall.

  • Reach your system’s factory lifespan. You’ve probably heard that an air conditioner is designed to last between 10-15 years before it needs replacement. Well, this estimate includes yearly maintenance, which means you’ll want to invest in this service if you want to get the most out of your system.
  • Better energy efficiency and eco-friendliness. Electricity costs a lot these days, and having an air conditioner that runs at peak efficiency is a great boon to your home. This also makes them more environmentally friendly.
  • More comfort on a regular basis. A maintained air conditioner is going to work more reliably and provide your family with more accurate temperature control.
  • Avoiding potential breakdowns. Breakdowns in the summer during a heatwave can be scary. Maintenance ensures your system has the tools to last, even if the summer is brutal.

Why Skipping Maintenance Is a Problem

We mentioned that maintenance is mandatory earlier, so we should probably explain what that means.

An air conditioner that is not maintained will be lucky to last half the time that a well-maintained AC lasts. Parts wear down over time, especially the components that move like the fan blade and the motor belts. They’re bound to run into problems due to lack of lubrication, degradation, and even things like refrigerant leaks.

Maintenance is designed to stop problems before they happen, meaning you get more out of your system for longer. Think of this service like an oil change for your car, a necessary part of owning machinery.

Late Is Better Than Never!

Don’t worry, if you forgot to schedule maintenance this year, you’re fine. Our schedule is still open and it doesn’t matter if it’s late. You can count on us to do a great job, even when the season is almost over.

We take comfort in YOUR comfort. Schedule maintenance with Landry Mechanical Inc Plumbing HVAC & Electric.
