Is AC Maintenance Worth It?

Imagine you’re at a small get-together with some neighbors and friends, and you bring up the idea of air conditioning maintenance. Perhaps you saw one of our emails or you’re interested in a specific maintenance program. However, the responses you get from people that you trust make you reconsider if maintenance is worth it or not.

“It’s all a scam, they don’t actually do anything when you schedule maintenance.”

“I had my AC for 15 years and never once had maintenance done. I don’t think you need it.”

“It’s just a bonus. You don’t actually need maintenance for your AC.”

Do these points sound familiar? We’re sure they do, because we hear them repeated everywhere. When it comes to air conditioning service in Syracuse, IN, people have wildly different opinions that can vary from home to home. Luckily, we’re going to go over each of these points and tell you exactly why AC maintenance is worth the cost.

Let’s Answer the Important Questions

We don’t want to be mistaken, some of the questions that homeowners bring up are good. If you’re not intimate with the HVAC industry, it can be hard to see why maintenance is such an important service. Especially in this day and age when homeowners are trying to cut costs everywhere, it’s important to evaluate what’s truly an essential purpose. So, let’s discuss some of those points from earlier and talk about the true value of maintenance.

“They don’t actually do anything when you schedule maintenance.”

We wish we didn’t have to do anything for maintenance visits! All jokes aside, AC maintenance is actually an intense process. Our technicians clean the sensitive, interior components of your AC like the coils and the compressor. We make minor adjustments and even small fixes to ensure you’re getting the comfortable temperatures you want with supreme energy efficiency. All of these practices are so you avoid repairs in the future and get the most out of your system.

I had my AC for 15 years and never once had maintenance done. I don’t think you need it.”

First of all, it’s possible that an air conditioner lasts its maximum lifespan without maintenance performed. But you’ve got to be extremely lucky to achieve that kind of longevity. Most systems that go without maintenance barely make it to half of their expected lifespan.

Also, your AC might last 15 years without maintenance, but it could be running incredibly inefficiently. Your bills might be 20% higher than they should be every month because your system is in rough shape. Yearly maintenance helps avoid this result.

“It’s just a bonus. You don’t actually need maintenance for your AC.”

Nope, AC maintenance is not a bonus. We’d go the extra step and say that maintenance is necessary for your AC to perform optimally. Here are two reasons maintenance is necessary:

  • A skipped maintenance appointment can void the warranty of your system and cost you a tremendous amount of money.
  • It will keep repairs at bay and ensure you receive the full value out of your AC purchase.

Yes, AC Maintenance Is Worth It

The bottom line is that air conditioning maintenance is definitely worth it, no matter what anyone says.
