At OnTime Service, we always recommend annual inspections for your air conditioner. However, many homeowners might still be unclear on why an annual or bi-annual inspection is necessary for your AC’s performance. That is why, to help you out, the pros at OnTime Service have created a guide answering all your questions about why your AC needs an inspection.

1. Prevent Frequent Repairs

Rather than dealing with a repair job every few months, a yearly inspection allows you to deal with a one-time maintenance job. It also prevents you from shelling out a great deal of money for repairs that could easily have been prevented if you had gone with an inspection instead. Maintenance, inspection and tune-ups can prevent big, long-term issues with your air conditioner and prolong the life of your unit. So, if you don’t want to see your HVAC technician more than once or twice a year, we recommend you get your AC inspected and maintained!

2. Lower Utility Bill

If you don’t take care of some maintenance tasks such as checking your unit for refrigerant leaks, fixing duct leaks and even changing your air filter, you will most definitely see a spike in your electricity bill. Inspections and maintenance checks can reduce your AC’s energy consumption as well as improve your indoor air quality and prevent your unit from running overtime. Just by changing your air filter, you can reduce your AC’s energy consumption by 5 to 15%! If you want to decrease your energy bill over time, we highly recommend scheduling an AC tune-up and inspection!

3. Prevent Break Downs

The last thing you want to deal with in this summer heat is a sudden air conditioner breakdown. By the time your HVAC technician starts making their way to your house, you’ll be sweating buckets. Prevent this from happening by scheduling an inspection. This way, your HVAC technician will be able to identify anything that could become a major problem in the future. They will also help you take the steps necessary to troubleshoot the problem as quickly as possible!

4. Greater Comfort

An annual or bi-annual inspection allows for greater comfort and less HVAC worries. You don’t want to spend your summer worrying about any issues with your unit. Enjoy this season by scheduling a one-time inspection so you can ensure your system won’t suddenly breakdown or create problems for you in the future. A well-functioning unit will keep you and your family comfortable, safe and free of AC-related worries!
