Air Conditioner / AC Service
When is the best time for AC Service?
BEFORE the repairs are needed!
Air Conditioner Service often doesn't get the presence of mind that it deserves. Your air conditioner is engineered to tolerate a good deal of neglect and abuse and keep on running. However, regular maintenance is necessary to keep the system running efficiently and effectively and to extend the life of your air conditioner. Regularly servicing your air conditioner will reduce the likelihood that you'll end up in an emergency situation - and of course, those emergencies tend to happen on the hottest days of the year!
An air conditioner's original efficiency declines gradually; approximately 5% per year without regular maintenance. Although almost imperceptible, it means that the 12 SEER air conditioning unit you just purchased a few years ago could be functioning today more like a 9 SEER unit! The good news is that most of that energy efficiency that was lost can be regained with regular maintenance. Regular AC service has been shown to maintain up to 95% of a unit's original efficiency.
The bottom line: AC Service is an inexpensive means of increasing the efficiency of your air conditioner, which will save you money year after year on your air conditioning bills! Call Summer's Heating & Cooling today for your AC service visit!
