AC Myth Busting: Does a New Air Conditioner Really Need Maintenance?

air-conditioner-condenser-wrenchYou’re loving your new air conditioning system. If you’ve recently purchased an air conditioner within the last few years and had it installed by professional AC technicians, it probably works a lot better than your older system did. Right now, you’re pleased that the air conditioner does not need to run continuously to provide minimal cooling, and that it uses so much less energy than the old one.

So if your air conditioner is working so well, do you really need to worry about routine maintenance this year? Today, we list our reasons for recommending that you schedule AC maintenance in the spring with a qualified technician—even if you only installed the system a few years ago. For more information, reach out to our team.

Problems with an air conditioner are not always apparent

One reason to schedule maintenance with a technician in the spring, no matter the age of your air conditioner, is that a problem within the system may not be so apparent when you run the system. In fact, an air conditioner may seem to be operating perfectly fine, until a broken part makes it struggle in the middle of summer and break down when you need it most!

A maintenance visit includes a thorough inspection of your air conditioning equipment. For the best technicians, this means running voltage tests, checking refrigerant levels, and looking over all of the mechanical parts to ensure performance.

If anything is wrong within the system, your technician will let you know, so that you can schedule the service you need to keep the air conditioner running smoothly.

Your air conditioner may use less energy with routine maintenance

Another big reason to schedule a maintenance appointment this year is that some amount of wear and tear has collected in your air conditioner over the past year. That means that the system is not running as smoothly as it could. All in all, your energy bills are slightly higher year after year.

Start scheduling regular service early in the life of your air conditioner so that it is able to retain energy efficiency as much as possible throughout its lifespan. A skilled technician can keep wear and tear to a minimum over the course of the life of your system, which helps maintain energy efficiency and low bills for longer.

A maintenance plan helps you save even more

One of the easiest ways to ensure you remember to schedule a maintenance appointment is by signing up for a maintenance agreement with your local contractor. A skilled air conditioning contractor can make sure that you get the service you need each year, without the hassle.

Our maintenance plan, for example, is an investment in the future of your air conditioning system. You get the benefits of regular maintenance, along with…
