How AC Maintenance Helps With AC Repairs

When you hear the term AC maintenance, you may think about activities that help care for your air conditioner. Examples include changing the air filter, spraying off the outdoor coils, and flushing the condensate drain with vinegar. But AC maintenance is also an investment that helps to prevent future AC repairs. 

If you want to stay ahead of air conditioning repair in Pasadena, CA, our team can help. In the meantime, you can keep reading to learn more about how AC maintenance can help reduce the chances of major repair bills in the future. 

Prevent AC Repairs

You know that AC maintenance is a great way to take care of your air conditioner. But did you know that it can actually lessen the chances of having to make AC repairs? When your air conditioner is well maintained, it is less likely to have problems. The whole point of scheduling AC maintenance is to identify problems while they are small and fix them before they have a chance to cause damage within the system. 

Examples include loose bolts and screws that can knock around inside and cause damage, or belts that have the potential to wear down and snap off. When our team has an opportunity to tighten bolts and screws each year, you ensure that your air conditioner is always working at its best. And when we can replace parts like worn-down belts, it prevents a system breakdown that can be a major inconvenience. 

Reduce Costs

It is inevitable that you will have to make some repairs here and there. But with AC maintenance, we can handle those repairs while they are small, as we already mentioned above. This can save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars over making major repairs instead.

When you prevent problems, you are far less likely to have any repair needs outside of AC maintenance. This means that you probably won’t have to call us for any emergency appointments, although we are always available if you need us. And we would rather you call us with any concerns than ignore the signs that something is wrong and allow it to get worse. 

Stay Ahead of Replacement

If we service your air conditioner year after year, we get to know your family and your air conditioning system. We can identify patterns of wear that are unique to your home and even offer advice for how you can maximize energy efficiency. We create a history of notes that we can refer back to you at future appointments.

It’s a great way for us to follow your air conditioner year after year and estimate how many years of life you have left in the system. Experts say that you will experience the most repairs in the last two years of your air conditioner’s life. If we begin to notice a pattern of increasing repairs, we may be able to help you head off major problems and replace your air conditioner before it stops working completely. 

JMS Air Conditioning and Heating has your back. Call us today to schedule an appointment for AC maintenance!
