Air conditioner maintenance should never be underestimated. This service can help save you from a world of trouble when it comes to keeping your home cool. But you might think that it is too late to get that tune-up. After all, maintenance is thought of as something that you do in the spring to prepare for summer.
Well, we are happy to say that you can still get your system checked out. Maintenance for your air conditioner in Kelowna is something that you can have done as long as the system is still functioning. And yes, it is far better than waiting for a repair. Let’s talk about why you should schedule a tune-up today.
Air conditioner maintenance still has benefits
As long as your system is still able to function, you can schedule maintenance for it. Regular air conditioning system maintenance will benefit you in multiple ways too, which is why late is always better than never.
- Improved energy efficiency: One of the best perks of maintaining your air conditioner is that it helps your system operate as efficiently as possible. Without regular tune-ups, your system may lose up to 5% of its efficiency level each year. This service can help your system keep up to 95% of its original efficiency level.
- Better reliability: A well-maintained air conditioner is always going to be able to function far more effectively than one that never gets a tune-up. This means that you are able to truly rely on your air conditioner’s ability to cool your home, even on some of the hottest days of the year.
- Fewer repair needs: Maintenance can help prevent up to 85% of the repairs that your air conditioner might encounter over the course of its lifespan. This is because maintenance can help to address a large number of smaller issues to prevent them from ever escalating into a full-blown repair.
- Longer system lifespan: Another benefit of getting your air conditioner’s yearly tune-up is that it can ensure that your system lasts for the maximum number of years possible before it needs to be replaced. Skipping maintenance can lead to a system that lasts less than the average amount of years!
The importance of system upkeep after a wildfire
Wildfire season will end eventually and it will leave behind a lot to deal with. One of the big issues that can mess with your air conditioner is the soot and other airborne debris that the fires create. This debris can end up coating your outdoor vents and can even create bad smells in your home. This is why it can be a great idea to have an expert check your air conditioner to ensure that it is left clean and functioning properly for the rest of the summer season. This is especially important if your system is a heat pump because that same debris can mess with the heating function of your system once things cool down unless it is addressed.
