Skipping AC Maintenance Risks: Safety, Performance

Skipping AC Maintenance Risks: Safety, Performance

There are a few systems within our homes or buildings where preventive maintenance is absolutely key to long-term quality and comfort, and your air conditioner and broader HVAC system are great examples. While repairing or replacing various AC and HVAC components is a regular part of owning a home or building, taking preventative maintenance seriously can save time, money and headaches in the long run.

At Airtime Heating & Cooling, we're happy to offer a wide range of heating and air conditioning repair, installation and other heating and AC services to clients around Lehi, Bluffdale, Draper, Riverton and nearby areas - including vital seasonal maintenance services offered to numerous clients. Spring AC maintenance is very important for the long-term quality of your system, and you're taking several risks if you skip it. In this two-part blog series, we'll go over all these risks - which double as great reasons to call our team and arrange your seasonal tune-up.

Safety Risks

First and foremost, skipping spring AC maintenance poses several safety risks, especially if you have an older HVAC system. These systems may have faulty wiring or other components that could potentially lead to electrical fires or other hazards.

Additionally, a lack of proper maintenance can cause your air conditioner to work less efficiently, leading to potential issues like carbon monoxide leaks or gas explosions. By regularly maintaining and inspecting your system, our trained professionals can catch potential safety hazards early on and save you from any dangerous situations.

Performance Risks

Another significant risk of skipping spring AC maintenance is decreased performance and comfort. Any issues, even small ones, can cause your system to work harder than it should, which can lead to higher energy bills and reduced cooling power. With regular maintenance, our technicians will clean and inspect all parts of your system to ensure optimal performance.

You might be surprised at how quickly seemingly minor issues can add up, causing your system to slowly deteriorate over time. Regular maintenance can help catch these problems early on and save you from having to deal with a sudden breakdown or costly repairs in the future.

Lifespan Risks

The whole goal of preventive maintenance is to extend the lifespan of your HVAC system, but skipping spring AC maintenance can have the opposite effect. Without proper care and regular tune-ups, your system will likely experience more wear and tear, leading to a shorter lifespan overall.

By investing in seasonal maintenance for your air conditioner, you'll not only save money in the long run on repairs and replacements, but you'll also enjoy a longer-lasting and more reliable system.

In part two of our series, we'll go over even more risks of skipping spring AC maintenance.
