Is preventive AC maintenance really worth it?

Show your AC some love!

Just like regular tune ups for your car, regular preventive maintenance for your AC will help you avoid those breakdowns that almost inevitably come at the worst possible time, prolong the life of your system, and save you money in the long run.

Without regular preventative maintenance, your HVAC system loses about 5% of its original efficiency with every year of operation, making your energy bills higher. A properly serviced HVAC system will also do a better job of dehumidifying your home and keeping you comfortable.

You never want your AC to break down in the heat and humidity of a Florida summer, but supply chain disruptions brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic have also made it difficult to get replacement parts so, now more than ever - an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

If it's been a while since you've shown your AC some love, call 941-921-7208 to schedule a preventive maintenance visit or, better yet, ask us about our maintenance agreements.
