Here’s What Happens If You Skip Air Conditioner Maintenance

When our pros recommend air conditioner maintenance, it isn’t without reason. It’s the one service you can count on to protect your cooling system and keep it running efficiently for longer. But if you overlook or ignore this important appointment, things can certainly go south in a hurry. Keep reading to learn what really happens when you pass on maintenance every year instead of calling your trusted Carrier® dealer, Roth Heating Company.

Energy Bills Will Continue to Rise

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that energy bills will go up without maintenance. Moving parts collect gunk and grime and lose efficiency quickly without proper care. In fact, your system can lose as much as 10 percent of its efficiency each year it goes without a cleaning and tuneup. Instead of settling for higher utility bills, schedule an affordable maintenance appointment with Roth Heating to get your system ready for the cooling season ahead and keep costs down all summer.

Breakdowns Are More Likely

  • Refrigerant leaks
  • Electrical issues
  • Mechanical problems
  • Dirty coils
  • Airflow issues
  • Clogged condensate drain

To avoid these problems, it’s best to schedule regular professional inspections. If we find these issues, our technicians will repair them before they become dangerous or cause a total failure.

Your System’s Lifespan Will Be Shortened

The average air conditioner lasts between 15 and 20 years, but some can last more than 25 years if they’re maintained properly. Without a routine cleaning, your system will have to work a lot harder to keep up with your cooling demands, which takes a serious toll on its lifespan. Take care of your cooling system now so it can take care of you for years, if not decades, to come. Even if it’s been a few years since your last system checkup, now is as good a time as any to get back into a maintenance routine.
