The transition from spring to summer has been quite enjoyable here in Rhode Island, with temperatures soaring and sunshine brightening up our days. While many people are getting outside and spending as much time in the sun as possible, others are worrying about whether or not their cooling systems are in good enough shape to handle the responsibilities of summer. Just because your AC is running more doesn’t mean that it’s taking a beating, however. In the end, it all comes down to the importance of maintenance.

Why Maintain Your AC?

Consider the analogy of a car when thinking about your AC and how much it operates during the summer months. If your vehicle is running at 70 mph, is it really taking more of a beating than when it runs at 55 mph? In most cases, the answer is no. Just as your car’s engine was designed to be able to hit these speeds and stay there without any ill effects for quite some time, your AC is meant to be able to handle the hot summer temperatures.

Like your car, though, you can’t comfortably take it out on the freeway without first ensuring that it’s been properly maintained.

If you’ve been neglecting AC maintenance, you’ve not only been spending more money than you should be on your monthly cooling bill, but chances are that your home has also been less comfortable than it could otherwise be during the hottest months of the year. Perhaps the biggest issue of all, however, is that unmaintained air conditioning units tend to be characterized by short lifespans. Since buying new HVAC equipment can be costly, taking the time to focus on cooling system maintenance is actually one of the best ways to save money year after year.
