March 24, 2021 | Homeowner Tips, Plumbing

As warmer weather approaches, your air conditioner is vital to ensuring your home’s comfort and safety. Regular a/c maintenance ensures your HVAC equipment is running effectively and efficiently and protected from system failures before they arise.

Scheduling your annual a/c maintenance from Mattex has several benefits, including:

Importance of Proper A/C Maintenance

Prevention of system issues, breakdowns and costly repairs

As a Mattex trained technician inspects your equipment, they will identify any parts that appear to be worn down or needing extra attention. By taking a thorough look at your equipment to ensure all parts are in their best possible condition, your a/c maintenance can help pinpoint and address small equipment issues before they become large system breakdowns. This detailed evaluation can help to prevent costly repairs in the future while protecting your system from service interruptions.

Increased energy efficiency

Air conditioning units that are clear of debris, charged and filled work more efficiently, requiring less energy to do the same amount of work. This not only helps the machine itself, but helps your wallet by reducing your overall energy consumption. By scheduling your seasonal a/c maintenance each year, you can even reduce your utility bills by up to 20%* over the life of your equipment.

Preserved manufacturer warranties

Did you know that annual system maintenance is required to maintain most manufacturer warranties? Skipping just one air conditioning tune-up can void your manufacturer warranty on your HVAC system. Scheduling your seasonal HVAC maintenance ensures a record of service that will prevent your system warranty from lapsing. By enrolling in a maintenance membership, Mattex will take the stress out of scheduling those annual checks and ensure your warranty is well protected.

Better air quality

When regular maintenance is avoided, dirt and debris collect in and around your unit. Clogged filters allow dirt and contaminants to pass through the system, negatively impacting allergies and increasing breathing complications. Regular HVAC equipment maintenance ensures dirt and debris aren’t circulating through your system, increasing your overall indoor air quality.

Extended equipment life

The efficiency and effectiveness of your system relies heavily on how well it is maintained. Preventative HVAC maintenance allows your system to maintain top performance throughout its life cycle. Poor, inconsistent and/or lapsed maintenance could contribute to earlier system breakdowns and, ultimately, an increased need for replacement. Consistently investing in professional seasonal maintenance can add up to five additional years onto the life of your equipment while ensuring the durability and dependability of equipment*.
