The Importance of Servicing Your AC Unit Prior to the Summer Heat

As summer approaches in the Northeast, temperatures can soar into the 90s and beyond, making a reliable air conditioning system essential for comfort and safety. At RCL Mechanical in Taunton, MA, we understand the significance of servicing your AC unit for the sweltering months ahead. Here’s why it’s crucial to service your AC unit before the summer heat sets in.


  1. Prevent Breakdowns and Costly Repairs

Summer in the Northeast can be unforgiving, with high humidity and scorching temperatures. The last thing you want is for your air conditioning system to fail during a heatwave. Every minute counts when you have no working air conditioning in your house when the temperature is over 80 degrees. Regular maintenance helps identify potential issues before they become major problems, preventing unexpected breakdowns and costly emergency repairs.


  1. Improve Energy Efficiency

A well-maintained AC unit operates more efficiently, consuming less energy to cool your home. This not only reduces your carbon footprint but also lowers your utility bills. Forecasts for this summer are predicting a 10-year high in cooling costs. Simple tasks like cleaning or replacing filters, checking refrigerant levels, and ensuring all components are functioning properly can significantly enhance your system’s performance and reduce your energy bills this summer.


  1. Extend the Lifespan of Your AC Unit

Air conditioning units are a significant investment, and you want yours to last as long as possible. Routine maintenance can extend the lifespan of your system by reducing wear and tear. Addressing minor issues early prevents them from escalating into major, more costly problems that can shorten your unit’s lifespan. If your unit needs replacement, we are able to assist with a new AC installation.


  1. Ensure Optimal Cooling Performance

When temperatures in the Northeast reach the 90s and above, you need your AC unit to perform at its best. Regular servicing ensures that your system is in top condition, providing consistent and efficient cooling. This is particularly important for households with vulnerable individuals, such as the elderly or young children, who are more susceptible to heat-related illnesses. At RCL Mechanical we offer annual memberships to ensure your unit is being serviced on a regular schedule to maintain a well running unit.


  1. Improve Indoor Air Quality

A well-maintained AC unit not only cools your home but also improves indoor air quality. Regular cleaning of filters and ducts removes dust, allergens, and other pollutants from the air, creating a healthier living environment. This is especially important during the summer months when windows and doors are often closed, and air circulation is limited. This summer has already seen extremely high pollen counts so let your AC unit help filter out thost allergens and keep your family comfortable.


  1. Peace of Mind

Knowing that your air conditioning system has been professionally serviced and is ready to handle the summer heat gives you peace of mind. You can enjoy the warmer months without worrying about potential AC failures or inefficiencies, allowing you to focus on making the most of your summer.
