Many service companies urge their customers to schedule air conditioning maintenance and inspection before summer begins.

Below, we discuss how pre-summer maintenance and repair benefits your home’s air conditioning system so that it lasts for years:

Advantages of AC Maintenance Before Summer

  1. Avoid malfunctions, breakdowns, and future repairs
    As all its residents know, DC Metro area summers can reach formidable temperatures. Many days feel over 100 degrees due to humidity, which makes indoor AC a modern necessity. However, as mechanical devices, HVAC systems can malfunction or break down – which would leave you in a sweltering spot.

    Yet a pre-summer AC tune-up can catch potential problems before one breaks the system. Argent’s expert technicians possess the training to spot and correct such issues. Plus, by catching technical issues early on, you lessen the amount of repair it requires. The longer a flaw sits, the worse it becomes.

  2. Reduce AC expenses
    A counterpart to the benefits discussed above, pre-summer maintenance can also reduce your expenses on air conditioning. Since you will want the AC running all summer, a mid-season breakdown would require expensive repairs or replacement. Yet a pre-summer tune-up could repair issues before one stops the whole system.

    Likewise, a dirty or malfunctioning unit cannot operate at maximum efficiency. But maintenance alleviates that situation, reducing your energy bills. Furthermore, higher-than-usual bills tend to indicate that something is wrong with your system.

  3. Sustain your system
    Annual HVAC upkeep not only prevents the system from breaking down but also allows that system to function better. This decreases stress on its parts and operations, allowing it to last longer. On average, annual maintenance extends an HVAC system’s lifetime by at least a few years.
  4. Improve your home’s air quality
    When an HVAC system sits without operating for months, dust and detritus gather in its ducts and on its air filter. And if you turn it back on in that condition, those allergens will circulate in your home. These contaminants then affect your indoor air quality. Additionally, mold and mildew sometimes grow on the coils of idle AC units.

    However, an Argent technician will clean your HVAC system while they inspect it to prevent that very outcome. By doing so, they help to preserve the health of your home’s occupants.
