How Much Can You Save With an Annual Tune-Up of Your Home’s Air Conditioner?
Every 3,000 miles I take my car over to the neighborhood car dealer to have the oil changed and routine maintenance performed. As I was waiting for my car to be serviced, I thought to myself “Do I really need to have my car serviced this often?” Then it occurred to me that my customers probably wonder the same thing about their annual home air conditioner tune-up. How many of my customers, friends and neighbors even bother to have their air conditioning unit tune up?
To find out, I checked with the Air Conditioning Contractors of America, other HVAC trade organizations and fellow heating and cooling companies. With a little research (thank you Internet!), I found over 55% of homeowners don’t schedule regular maintenance on their home air conditioning system – yet over half of all AC users express “dissatisfaction with the performance of their air conditioner and its cost to operate.”
So…55% of homeowners don’t get their AC tune up and their not happy with their Air Conditioning unit’s performance?
Here are some additional air conditioning maintenance facts I found:
- According to several studies 9 out of every 10 Air conditioning breakdowns occur due to nothing more than “a dirty unit.”
- According to a 2001 Louisiana State University study, the average homeowner spends $32.76 more a month on their energy bills by not have their heating and cooling unit maintained.
- Your Air Conditioning life span will be significantly reduced without maintaining your AC.
So how much can you save with an annual tune up of your home’s air conditioner? Just like with your oil change, a lot more than a couple bucks. Now when I go to have my oil changed, I will have a greater appreciation for the efforts I am taking to increase my car’s performance.
