How Can Preventative Air Conditioner Maintenance Save You Money?
Living in Ontario, Canada means rolling with the heat waves and cold warnings - all year long!
Last summer, the heat and humidity of summer hit hard, leaving Sudbury homeowners with little time to prepare. But this year can be different! If the changing landscape of COVID-19 has taught us anything, it is to be prepared for the unexpected.
So, are you ready for the heat this summer? Weather forecasters are calling for a sweltering and stormy summer, which means we’re given the opportunity to get ahead of the game!
First step? Making sure that your air conditioner is able to handle the upcoming heat. If you’re planning on working from home this summer, then your air conditioner needs to be running in tip-top condition!

How Can You Save Money With Preventative Air Conditioner Maintenance?
Air conditioner maintenance is all about performance optimization and safety. The best part is, you only need to schedule this type of service once per year to potentially save you hundreds of dollars in annual energy costs.
According to the Financial Accountability Office of Ontario, homeowners spend around $2,358 per year on energy bills alone.
So, what if we told you that you could start saving on some of those bills with an easy, one-time solution each year?
Scheduling your annual air conditioning preventative maintenance could trim your energy bills drastically!
According to the Building Efficiency Initiative, potential savings from preventive air conditioning maintenance range between 5-10 percent! This depends on your HVAC system's make, model, age, condition and average usage patterns.
Let’s break those savings done!
With 5% annual energy savings, you would be saving roughly $75.
With 40% energy savings annually, that number increases to $600.
In most cases, our customer’s have seen the savings themselves easily paying for the preventative air conditioner maintenance appointments!

Sometimes your air conditioner comes to the point of no return. In cases like these, it’s time to give your old AC the boot and find a replacement.
Not sure if it’s time to replace your air conditioner? One of the factors to watch for when your AC unit is nearing the end of its life is simply how long it’s been in business. According to EnergyStar, the typical air conditioner unit is designed to last roughly 10 years. The kicker here is that those 10 years are based on regular, preventative air conditioner maintenance and proper AC repairs.
