Why Preventative AC Maintenance is Necessary

When it comes to your air conditioner, everything seems to be working perfectly fine, right? That is, until it isn’t. Issues with your AC can arise when you least expect it, causing a major inconvenience, often during the hottest days of the year! This puts you in an uncomfortable home until your HVAC technician can make it over to take a look.

The Benefits of Maintaining Your AC

To avoid getting caught in a sweaty and sticky situation, we recommend routine preventative maintenance of HVAC systems to homeowners.


If your unit has not been inspected in a while, chances are it has developed some inefficient habits. During a preventative maintenance appointment, a technician will look for these habits and fix them to create an overall better working machine. Now your unit is sure to make the best use of the fuel and energy it needs to run!

Lower Bills

With higher efficiency comes lower bills. A unit in need of maintenance or filled with dust and clogs needs to work harder to keep up with your demand of cooling the home. This extra work will add extra dollars and cents to your utility bills.

When an air conditioner is properly maintained and cleaned, there is nothing stopping it from working smoothly like it was built to!

Future Security

Just like a check-up at the doctor, preventative maintenance can help technicians spot problem areas that should be closely monitored or fixed right away. Fixing these problems early on can often help you avoid a larger, more costly breakdown in the future.

Our technicians will get to know your machine and ensure that they do what they can to extend the life of your air conditioner.

Maintenance Checklist

Here are some things our technicians will do at your preventive maintenance visit:

  • Tighten connections and plugs
  • Lubricate moving parts like fans and motors
  • Inspect ductwork for leaks
  • Check for clogs and build-up
  • Look at refrigerant levels
  • Thoroughly clean the unit
