Now that the weather is finally warming up again, it’s time to start thinking about air conditioning. It might seem as though we just got out of the cold months, but it’s important to consider air conditioner maintenance before you need it that cooling breeze.

This is even more important for business owners. When the weather warms up, you want your business’ air conditioning tuned up and ready to take on whatever summer temperatures arrive. There are a number of negative consequences that go with not having your business’ air conditioning regularly serviced. These include:

  • Paying too much for air conditioning. If you never service your air conditioner, you have no idea how well it is functioning… unless it’s broken. However, before the air conditioner stops working completely, it could be sucking away thousands of dollars a year in excess energy. If your unit is working extra hard yet not pumping out enough air, it’s money lost. Do your pocketbook a favor and get routine service!
  • Productivity suffers. What employee can even attempt to work hard if he’s sweating in front of his cubicle or cash register? If it’s extremely hot, your employees are not going to be in the mood to work – and who could blame them? Keep them comfortable and happy for greater productivity.
  • Customers will not be impressed. If your air conditioning breaks, a customer stepping into your business and encountering sweltering, unhappy employees and a wall of heat is likely going to walk way. Make it a priority to never have this happen.
  • It could catch on fire. This is a worst-case scenario, but there have been instances of air conditioners catching fire when the AC drain line isn’t properly maintained. This will cause a lot of hassle for you, and could result in injury or loss of life.

Keep in mind that most air conditioning units are only meant to last for 10 years before they are replaced. While this might seem very expensive, it’s better to err on the side of caution. Additionally, having routine maintenance and cleaning will ensure that your air conditioning unit is functioning properly and safely for years to come.
