Buying a new air conditioning system is one of the biggest appliance purchases you’ll make as a homeowner, and you generally do it once every 10 to 15 years. Once you arrange for professional installation and start to enjoy the benefits of great cooling, you might wonder how you’re going to keep it in good working condition. Air conditioning maintenance is the answer. Here are a few things you need to know about maintenance, and why you should consider buying a maintenance contract.
Is AC Maintenance a Good Investment?
When you compare the cost of maintenance to the price you paid to purchase and install the equipment, the benefits are clear. Maintenance costs a small fraction of the total, even if you have annual maintenance for the life of the equipment. It acts as an additional layer of protection for your air conditioning system and your comfort. While you can do a few tasks on your own, it’s important to hire a professional to test and inspect the system. Professional maintenance only takes a short visit in the spring, to confirm that your air conditioning system is operating as it should.

What’s Involved With Air Conditioning Maintenance?
Your air conditioning is a complicated system of parts and processes that all work together. Hiring a technician to maintain it helps to ensure that all the parts are in good condition and running efficiently. Maintenance service includes a thorough test of all aspects of the system, from the refrigerant line to the blower motor. Technicians confirm that moving parts have the right amount of lubrication and aren’t showing signs of wear. During the inspection, your technician may notice concerns that require air conditioning repair. Early detection often prevents more serious problems and could save you money on the repair bill.
