Annual AC Maintenance Contract


Your car needs regular oil changes to make sure it runs. Like your car, you need to get tune-ups on your AC system throughout the year. Signing up for an annual AC maintenance contract is vital to keep your unit operating when you need it. Don’t wait for an emergency. You’ll end up shelling out lots of money for something that you could have avoided. There are many reasons why a maintenance contract is vital for your air conditioner.

1. Savings

Your AC system, when working, isn’t a costly investment. It’s the repairs that can affect your wallet! To avoid repairs, maintain your unit over the summer. Keep it free from debris that can build up over time and cause problems.

2. Efficiency

Why add to your monthly energy bills if you don’t have to? When you neglect your AC, dust, dirt and debris slows the unit down. It has to work much harder to achieve the same results. This means higher energy bills for you. The biggest culprit is a dirty or clogged filter, which blocks normal air flow. By changing your filters, you can reduce your energy consumption by 5% to 15%, according to

3. Dependability

Signing up for a maintenance contract goes a long way towards making sure your unit works when you want it to. The heat of the summer is not a good time for your AC to die. You won’t have much luck getting an AC technician to come out during a heat wave as they’re busy with similar calls! Don’t put your kids, elderly parents or pets in harm’s way. Instead, make sure your AC unit is running at all times. This helps everyone stays comfortable even in the hottest weather.

4. Air Quality

Your indoor air quality is vital to the health and safety of the people in your home. Cleaner airflow is one big reason to sign up for annual maintenance. This will reduce the allergens in the air, which can make people sick. It also can cause asthma and allergy flare-ups. The CPSC says that outside pollutants can build up when you don’t change your filters.

5. Convenience

With a maintenance contract, you can schedule your appointments ahead of time. There’s no need to remember to make service calls! Plus, we’re always running specials, so check back often.
