Dallas, TX, summers are very hot and humid. The temperature on a hot summer day can reach 96 degrees. When you factor in the humidity, it can feel hotter than 96 degrees.
Because it is so hot outside, you spend more time in your home with the air conditioner running. During the hottest time of the year, the last thing you want is for your air conditioner to break down. If this happens, it will be nearly impossible to keep your home cool and comfortable.
One of the best ways to prevent a complete air conditioner breakdown is to schedule an appointment for air conditioning service before the cooling season begins.
If you aren’t sure if an annual air conditioning servicing is worth the time and the cost, you should consider the benefits of having this service performed every year.
#1 Cleaner Air
When it is very hot outside, you keep the windows closed and run the air conditioner. If you neglect to schedule an air conditioning service appointment, dust, dirt, bacteria, and other pollutants that have built up in the air conditioner will circulate through the home. Because your windows are closed, these pollutants will circulate through the home constantly, affecting the air quality in your home. Breathing in these pollutants can cause allergy symptoms and respiratory issues.
When you schedule an appointment for air conditioning servicing, an HVAC tech will clean the unit and replace the air filter, improving the air quality in your home.
#2 Keep Your Family Healthy
If you neglect to have an air conditioning service performed every year, you are putting your family’s health at risk.
When dirt, dust, pet dander, and other contaminants build up in the air conditioner, it will circulate through the air in your Dallas, TX home. When your family breathes in these contaminants, they can begin to experience allergy symptoms. If a member of your family has a chronic lung or respiratory issue, breathing in these pollutants will worsen their condition.
If you schedule an air conditioning service every year, an HVAC tech will clean the air conditioner, removing anything that will affect the air quality. Having this service performed will ensure the air is safe for you and your loved ones to breathe.
#3 Save Money On Your Energy Bills
If you neglect to schedule an annual air conditioning servicing, the system won’t function as efficiently as it should. If the air conditioner in your home isn’t running efficiently, it will need to work harder to keep your home cool. When the system has to work harder, it will cause a significant increase in your cooling costs.
During an annual air conditioning service, an HVAC tech will tune up the system, ensuring that it functions as efficiently as possible. If you are worried about the cost of an AC service, you shouldn’t be. The service will pay for itself in the money you can save on your cooling costs within a few months.
#4 Eradicate Foul Smells
Over time, dirt, bacteria, and mold can build up in the air conditioner in your home. When this happens, these contaminants can cause a nasty smell in your home when the air conditioner is running.
When you schedule an appointment for air conditioning service, the HVAC tech will clean the system, removing the contaminants causing the foul smell. If you have this service performed every year, your home will always smell fresh when the system is running.
#5 Increase the Lifespan Of the Air Conditioner
The average lifespan of an air conditioner is between 10 and 15 years. If the air conditioner in your Dallas, TX home will reach its maximum lifespan, you need to schedule an appointment for air conditioning servicing every year.
Neglecting to schedule this appointment will cause your system to work less efficiently, and you will need to work overtime to keep your home cool. This extra work will put added strain on your system, which can decrease the maximum lifespan. If you want your air conditioner to function as long as possible, an annual air conditioning service appointment is essential.
#6 Reduce the Risk Of a Complete Breakdown
If your air conditioner breaks down during the hottest time of the year, your home won’t be cool and comfortable until an HVAC tech makes the necessary repair. Because summer is one of the busiest times of the year for an HVAC tech, there is no guarantee someone can get to your home right away. In addition, if they have to order a part, it can be days before your system is up and running again.
When you have an air conditioning service performed before the cooling season begins, the HVAC tech will inspect. During this inspection, they will detect any issues that could cause a complete system breakdown. This will allow the HVAC tech to make the necessary repair before you need to run your air conditioner, and it will continue running all summer long.
#7 Prevent the Need For An Expensive Replacement
The average cost of an air conditioner replacement is between $3,300 and $5,900. If you have a large home, a replacement can cost up to $7,000. Because this is a major investment, you should do everything possible to extend the system’s lifespan as long as possible. If you neglect to have AC service performed, you will need to replace your air conditioner sooner than necessary. In addition, if there is something seriously wrong with your air conditioner, it can be repaired before too much damage is caused, and it needs to be replaced.
#8 Keep the Warranty Valid
If your air conditioner is still under warranty, you should prioritize scheduling an appointment for AC servicing. Most manufacturers require you have your system serviced every year to keep the warranty valid. If you neglect to have your air conditioner serviced and something goes wrong, it won’t be covered under the warranty, and you will need to pay for the repair yourself.
