When your air conditioner is working properly, it’s easy to set the thermostat to your desired temperature and forget about it until you notice it acting strangely or it breaks down completely. However, you can take action to prevent premature breakdowns and unfortunate costly AC repairs.
At Penning Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electric, we recommend that you receive AC maintenance in Grand Rapids at least once a year (particularly in the fall or winter months) to ensure that everything will be in proper working condition for the warmer summer months.
When you work with our team of highly trained and experienced technicians, you can rest easy knowing that we stand behind the quality of our work so much that we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. As a family owned business that’s now in its third generation, we’ve built our reputation due to the fact that we always operate with honesty and integrity.
What Are the Benefits of Routine AC Maintenance?
Spring and summertime in Western Michigan mean warmer temperatures and muggy weather. Therefore, you rely heavily on your air conditioner to provide you with the cool, refreshing air you need to feel comfortable.
Because of this frequent use, your system will experience considerable wear and tear. However, by receiving routine maintenance, you can expand your unit’s lifespan and protect your initial investment.
Other benefits of hiring our team to perform routine AC maintenance in Grand Rapids include:
- Increased energy efficiency
- Reduced utility bills
- Enhanced comfort
- Reduced chances of future breakdowns
- More even cooling throughout your property
- Elimination of “hot spots”
- Reduced need for AC repair & associated costs
- Improved air quality due to removal of dust that accumulates in the system
If your unit is still under the manufacturer’s warranty, keeping up with routine maintenance will likely be a requirement in order for the warranty to still be valid.
What Does AC Maintenance Include?
