If it’s been awhile since the last time you had a professional take a look at your air conditioner, you could be losing money on electric bills and putting your family at risk for the discomfort and hassle of an early breakdown or big repair job. As Texas’ heat rises for spring and summer, you want to have reliably cool air indoors.
Northwind Air Conditioning, Heating & Mechanical Services is a family owned and operated business that’s been helping Texas families since 1998. Our owner and founder, Jimmy Harris can still be found out on the job on occasion visiting families he’s helped over the years. When you need AC installation and repair in Briargrove, TX, we hope Northwind comes to mind. Here are some of the benefits our customers enjoy with an annual AC maintenance appointment.
- Utility bill savings. Getting cooling costs down is a big priority for us since our warm climate means we rely on our air conditioners almost year round. It’s estimated that about 40% of household energy costs go to heating and cooling the home. Getting your AC maintenance done each year lets us get it running as smoothly as possible by cleaning out trapped dirt that cause less airflow. The better the airflow, the less energy it takes to cool your home, and that means dollars saved each day.
- A longer lifespan for your investment. Whether it came with the home when you purchased it, or you bought it later, your air conditioner is a large upfront cost investment. To get the most out of it, maintenance helps keep it running well over the years. With an average lifespan of 15-20 years with good maintenance and regular filter changes, it makes sense to keep yours in the best condition possible. Though an air conditioner can breakdown and need replacement at 10 years, the chances of this happening with maintenance each year are low.
- Lower repair costs. Annual maintenance also helps protect you from surprise breakdowns that are large scale repairs. When your technician takes a look each year, they will be able to find repairs sooner and while they are small scale, such as one worn part to replace. You’ll save money over the years from this one hour appointment because repairs will be caught more quickly, before they create the necessity for expensive, labor-intensive larger repairs.
- Everyone’s air quality improves. Indoor air quality stays high with maintenance service where we clean out vents and the coils behind the air filter in your system. Dirt, mold, mildew, allergens, dust, and other contaminants build up behind the air filter as it gets dirty and accumulate over the year. Getting a cleaning not only resets the dirt levels, but also increases air quality and flow, letting your AC work more efficiently and removing more contaminants from the air.
