Here’s Why You Should Service Your AC at Least Once a Year

Texas is great, but the weather here isn’t great all year round. We really rely on our heating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems to keep our families comfortable on hot summer days and cold winter nights. Not only do we depend on these systems, but we also know that they are a big investment.

At a minimum, you should aim to have your AC serviced every year in early to mid-spring. But for optimal performance, it would be in your best interest to also have your unit serviced in the fall. We will focus on your furnace to prepare your system to deal with heating demands once the temperatures cool.

When you ensure that your HVAC system is maintained regularly, it will save you money and keep you and your family comfortable – in every season of the year. But, there are some other important advantages that homeowners should be aware of:

Longer Lifespan. The main advantage of yearly servicing is that it will help your HVAC system last longer. The average lifespan of a furnace and air conditioner is generally 10 to 20 years. However, some homeowners find that their HVAC systems last up to 30 years. The durability of your HVAC system will depend largely on how well you maintain it. Poor maintenance may mean that it needs to be replaced sooner.

Lower Utility Bills. When an HVAC system is serviced annually, it will perform better. It’s simple; the more efficient the heating and air conditioning run, the lower your energy bills will be.

Peace of Mind. If you service your HVAC system regularly, you can rest easy knowing that your system won’t break down when you need it most. Servicing will give your trusted technician the opportunity to replace worn-out parts before causing more extensive and/or expensive damage to the system.

Fewer Repairs. In general, regularly serviced HVAC systems don’t need to be repaired as often as those that are not maintained properly. The reason for this is that servicing gives technicians the chance to identify and resolve issues before they lead to a more problematic breakdown.

More Indoor Comfort. You can expect a furnace and conditioning system to work far better and optimize comfort indoors with sufficient preventative care.

Better Air Circulation and Quality. Your HVAC system is not only important for cooling and heating a space. It’s also responsible for ensuring proper ventilation. With regular service checks, you won’t have to worry about poor air quality and the accumulation of irritants like dust and allergens in your home.

Less Money on Parts. Some homeowners mistakenly believe they’re saving money by skipping checkups. However, keeping your annual appointment can prevent you from wasting money. If you have your furnace and A/C unit cleaned on a regular basis, they’re less likely to need costly replacement parts. In the end, skipping annual servicing is usually more expensive.
