Regular A/C maintenance is not only vital for an efficiently running home but it can also save you a good amount of money in the long run. Our team of experts has broken down the amount you can save and avoid spending by keeping up with your annual system check! See how much you could be saving below … you might be pleasantly surprised.
Staying Within Warranty
When your A/C system was originally installed, it was mostly likely accompanied with a 10 year warranty. A warranty gives you peace of mind that if something does go wrong with your unit, the manufacturer will back up their product. However, a warranty comes with terms and conditions. Typically, regular maintenance is required or your warranty will be void and you will be responsible for the replacement parts or repair. The national average cost of A/C repair ranges between $168 – $605. That’s a good chunk of money that could be saved by ensuring you stay within your manufacturer’s warranty with regular A/C maintenance!
Lower Utility Bills
Having a regularly maintained unit means you’re getting the most for your money. When your A/C system is clogged, the coils are dirty, or you have parts that are bent or broken, the overall efficiency of your unit is going to trend downwards. This also means your energy consumption is going to increase along with your utility bills, as your system now has to work harder to attempt to cool down your home. An A/C tune-up could not only prevent your utility bill from increasing but it could save you 15% on your next utility bill! Chicagoans pay about $132 on average for utilities, that’s $112 a month with a 15% savings or a savings of a little over $237 dollars a year on average.
Prevent System Breakdowns
If your system breaks down and you need to replace it, the average cost of a new system install is around $5,655. This is a large amount of money, especially when you aren’t expecting it, and can be greatly avoided through routine system maintenance. According to the Indoor Air Quality Association, regular HVAC maintenance is said to reduce the risk of costly breakdowns by as much as 95%.
So to recap your total savings from getting your annual a/c tune-up could be…
- Up to $605 on possible repairs
- Around $237 a year on your utility bill
- Average savings of $5,655 by reducing the chance of a total system breakdown
