Maintenance Season PSA

It’s hard to believe that fall is already here. Sometimes it feels like just yesterday that we entered the summer months, but with September here in full swing, we need to start talking about fall.

From an HVAC perspective, fall is an interesting season. Temperatures are milder, which means that we can finally take a break from running the air conditioner or heating system all day. But this also means that we’ve got a window of time to get our technology repaired and maintained by professionals.

Yep, it’s the season of maintenance! AC maintenance in Cedar Rapids, IA is a great idea for homeowners who otherwise have functioning air conditioners but would like to remain proactive. Maintenance can keep things efficient, extend the lifespan of your air conditioner, and do more to make you feel much better about the future.

Some of the Benefits of Maintenance

Let’s start with the basics. Why invest in maintenance in the first place? Many homeowners have never even purchased this system, so we need to talk about why it’s good in the first place. And boy are there a lot of reasons!

For starters, maintenance helps keep your system running efficiently. Sources generally agree that an unmaintained air conditioner loses on average about 5% of it’s efficiency every year. This number compounds, which means that after just four years your system would be running about 20% less efficiently than it would with maintenance. This is a big difference and it means you’re paying 20% more on your energy bill. This is pretty much unacceptable from any perspective and maintenance is the solution to the problem.

Maintenance also extends the lifespan of your system, allowing a technician to make minor adjustments and repairs. You could even see a reduction in overall repair frequency due to yearly maintenance appointments, which is a huge benefit.

Don’t Forget Peace of Mind!

Let’s not discount one of the best reasons to invest in maintenance–peace of mind! Generally, customers can feel a lot better running their air conditioners knowing that they’ve been maintained every year. It’s easier to sleep at night and you might be less anxious knowing that your HVAC technology is in good shape and there’s not a repair waiting around the corner.

Many customers think that they don’t need to be concerned with peace of mind, but stress takes many forms. It’s important to manage that stress with services that prepare you for the future, so you know you’re taken care of.

Why Fall Is the Best Season for Maintenance

So, why are we making this announcement now? Why didn’t we mention AC maintenance during the hottest point of the summer? Well, the answer is pretty simple.

Our schedules are usually completely booked during the middle of the summer from constant repair calls. Now that things are cooling down, we’ve got some open spots that could be convenient to you and your busy schedule. Since you don’t depend on your AC like you did a month ago, it might be easier to schedule this appointment and have the system shut down for a little while when it gets maintained.
