Emergency Repair vs Maintenance (Part 2)

The Value of Toronto Air Conditioner Maintenance

Q. Emergency Repair vs Maintenance. Which is more important?

We call our Toronto furnace or air conditioner maintenance preventive maintenance. If it’s done at regular intervals, you should experience fewer breakdowns because we are taking care of small problems before they become big ones. It’s like going to the dentist to get a small filling to prevent a future root canal.

‘The biggest challenge with Toronto air conditioners is not with anything that is life threatening but rather with property damage. In our hot, humid climate a Toronto air conditioner can remove up to 20 gallons of water a day. If the drain hasn’t been checked and cleaned out and subsequently becomes plugged, you can get significant water damage. If your Toronto air conditioner is in your attic, this can be devastating and costly. We regularly recommend secondary drain pans, moisture detection switches and float traps to prevent these kinds of problems.

Another big benefit has to do with product updates. There are few “recalls” in our industry but there are quite a few service bulletins issued with updates to equipment. Notices don’t always go out to homeowners or they get lost in the barrage of junk mail. Often, the only way you find out is when your Toronto air conditioner service technician is in the home and advises you to get the work done. This is a valuable service we make available to our customers during our regular maintenance visits.

Regular Toronto air conditioner maintenance will also extend the life of your air conditioner and ensure it is operating at peak efficiency to keep your hydro bill in check.

At AtlasCare we are focused on delivering world-class Toronto HVAC service to our customers in the GTA. We believe that preventive maintenance is the best medicine.
