Reasons to Schedule a Preventative A/C Maintenance Visit

a/c preventative maintenance

Just like you need to have your car inspected every year to ensure it’s in working order, your air conditioning unit has plenty of moving parts a technician should check annually for efficiency and wear.

If you’re interested in a preventative maintenance plan, Zimmerman Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning will happily work with you. We’ve developed a reputation for quality work and customer service, as Harrisburg community has voted us Best of the Best for Plumbing & HVAC since 2005. We pride ourselves on transparency and honesty, so you’ll never exit a conversation with us feeling disappointed or confused.

By staying on top of repairs, you can reap a host of benefits.

What Do You Gain From A/C Preventative Maintenance?

More often than not, people tend to put things off. We don’t immediately go to the doctor for a cough, nor do we rush to the mechanic to get that check engine light looked at. However, adhering to that strategy often results in problems when we can least afford them.

You don’t want to be sick for a job presentation nor see your car break down on a road trip, so why would you want to risk seeing your air conditioner break down during one of the hottest days of the year? Above all, preventative A/C maintenance grants peace of mind, and it’s hard to place a value on that.

If that’s not enough, here are some other reasons to schedule a visit with one of our technicians:

  • You Save on Repairs: This is an idea most people can get on board with. Like a doctor can flag symptoms and prescribe treatment, our technicians will explore the ins and outs of your unit. That will allow them to address problems before they can become much more severe, hence saving the massive amounts of money that it often takes to replace major parts.
  • You Save on Electric Bills: Working harder doesn’t always mean working smarter. When your air conditioner is bogged down by dirty or malfunctioning parts, research has shown that your operating costs can increase by as much as 20 percent. Regular maintenance and repairs will keep your costs down and your wallet full.
  • You Gain Longevity: Perhaps the most obvious benefit from regular maintenance is that you can significantly extend your air conditioner’s lifespan. Systems as a whole can be quite expensive, so they’re not something you want to get into the habit of replacing every few years. By replacing worn-out parts and cleaning the unit out frequently, you’ll get the most out of your investment.

With our help, your air conditioner will keep you feeling comfortable for years to come.

What Goes Into Preventative Air Conditioner Maintenance?

When you invest in our maintenance services, you’re gaining a partner who will leave no part of the process untouched. We care about providing you with solutions, and we’ll maintain our dedication to your project from start to finish. Preventative HVAC system maintenance encompasses a wide range of different services, and our trained technicians possess the knowledge to complete all of them with precision and efficiency.

Cleanliness is perhaps the most crucial aspect. Many issues air conditioners experience are due to the dirt, gunk and debris that build up over time. While we’re there, we can replace your air filter, clean out your condenser’s coils and tidy up any other part of the system that needs it. When we finish, noticeably cleaner and colder air will flow into your home.

By conducting a thorough cleaning of the system, we can gain a better reading on which parts are functioning well and which might need some attention. We’ll conduct an assortment of tests, then use that information to perform a range of optimizations. From calibrating your thermostat to lubricating parts to improving electrical connections, our technician will handle it all. We’ll also replace any worn-out parts with your permission, tag all of your emergency shut-offs, and leave you with a full system checklist.

Through it all, we’ll offer tips to keep your system in peak condition without our help, and we’ll gladly answer any questions you might have.
