How Timely AC Repair Saves You Money

Avoiding AC repair in Longwood, FL is never a good idea. Your AC needs repairs, but waiting to schedule a technician to come out and actually do the work is a great way to destroy your air conditioner.

Timely repairs should never be a point of stress. In fact, they should make you feel optimistic about your air conditioner’s future. This is why you not only need to treat repair needs with urgency, but how getting it done ASAP helps you save money.

Better Energy Efficiency

Your AC turns on multiple times per day, and if it’s in good working order, it will run for 15-20 minutes. That’s one power cycle. It does this multiple times per day.

If someone asked you if you wanted those power cycles to be longer, but your house stayed the same temperature, would you want that? That’s what damaged air conditioners do–they often take longer to cool your home, resulting in higher energy spend and a bigger bill at the end of the month.

If it fires up past that 15-20 minute mark, you can attribute a little bit of it to age. An AC that you’ve had for 12 years isn’t as efficient as a newer unit, or in the same working condition.

But it’s when it jumps far past that time constraint that you run into problems. Timely repairs maintain your AC for longer, therefore maintaining a good energy efficiency rating and reducing your cooling costs.

Fewer Repairs Over Time

Timely AC repairs mean you should run into fewer repairs overall. We know what you’re thinking: it already ran into a problem, how can you lower the number of problems over time?

Because that problem causes other problems within your AC. When one component fails, it causes other components to fail, and you’re left with a poorly performing AC and a bunch of pieces that are on the verge of breaking.

Imagine that every component inside your AC has a percentage bar, like the battery on your phone. Except with each component, when that bar runs out, the part fails. Avoiding timely AC repairs is like draining that battery at a faster speed with no gain to you.

Prevent Short Cycling

We talked about that 15-20 minute cycle earlier, but did you know your AC can actually run shorter cycles than that? It’s not a good thing thouh: it’s called short cycling, and it means there’s a big problem with your air conditioner.

Short cycling happens when your AC can’t meet the demand or request that the thermostat sends its way. If the thermostat reads the temperature and requests the AC to lower the room temp by two degrees, and it shuts down before meeting that request, it’s because the AC cannot physically do it. Something’s broken.

Timely Repairs Over Everything Else
