Debunking the Myth: AC Units Don’t Need Regular Maintenance

The Truth About Air Conditioner Maintenance

At Milwaukie Heating & Cooling, we often hear customers say they don’t need to service their air conditioners regularly. This common misconception can lead to costly repairs and reduced efficiency. Today, we’re debunking this myth and explaining why regular AC maintenance is crucial for homeowners in Clackamas, Happy Valley, West Linn, Lake Oswego, and Oregon City.

Why Regular AC Service Matters

1. Improved Efficiency: Regular maintenance keeps your system running at peak performance, reducing energy costs.

2. Extended Lifespan: Properly maintained units last longer, saving you money on premature replacements.

3. Better Air Quality: Clean components mean cleaner air circulating in your home.

4. Fewer Repairs: Catching small issues early prevents major breakdowns.

The Consequences of Neglect

Neglecting your AC can lead to:

– Reduced cooling capacity
– Higher energy bills
– Unexpected breakdowns during heat waves
– Poor indoor air quality

Our Recommendation

We recommend scheduling AC service at least once a year, preferably in spring before the cooling season begins. This ensures your system is ready to handle the heat when you need it most.

Don’t fall for the myth that AC units are maintenance-free. Trust the experts at Milwaukie Heating & Cooling to keep your air conditioning system running smoothly all summer long.
