What happens if AC is not serviced?

Thumbtack Editors
Answered

If an AC unit is not serviced, your unit will not perform correctly and you’ll likely waste energy (and receive higher energy bills).

Your unit’s efficiency will decrease due to dust buildup on the evaporator and condenser coils, and the air coming from the AC unit will be dirtier. Fans and electric coils may lose their lubrication and burn out from friction. Other regular wear and tear issues will also occur eventually. 

Contact the best central air repair pros near you to schedule annual maintenance and prevent the need for costly repairs down the line.
