Repair or maintenance that’s the question
Repair or maintenance that’s the question – Giving your air conditioner regular maintenance and tune ups is necessary to extend its useful life, lower your electricity bills and a reduction of greenhouse gasses. Studies of American citizens spend a massive 11 million dollars on home cooling costs. 5% of all electricity is used to power our air conditioners.
An air conditioner not tuned regularly loses 5% efficiency each year. Have your system serviced regularly and do the minor maintenance yourself. You can always check the air filter and clean or replace it if necessary. Also you can check the electrical terminals and the thermostat control for any errors.
A frequently tuned system as many professional repairmen will tell you will run on 95% efficiency. Regular tune-up & maintenance also reduces your costs of having the air conditioner repaired every year you need it in the summer. When not maintained and you let fungi grow on the unit and dust inhabiting the insides, get ready for a big fat repair & servicing bill.

The best way to help avoid an emergency breakdown of an air conditioning system is to have regular maintenance done twice a year. An average air conditioner in Florida runs about 2500 hours a year.

These maintenance checks will ensure that your unit runs at peak efficiency and ensures your manufacturer’s warranty remains in effect.
