Air conditioners are essential appliances in most Charlotte, North Carolina area households, especially during the summer months. However, like all appliances, air conditioners require repair. Delaying air conditioner repair can cost you more in the long run.

Five Ways Delaying Air Conditioner Repair Can Cost You

Here are five ways waiting to repair your air conditioner can cost you:

  1. Your Energy Bills Will be Higher. A damaged or poorly functioning air conditioner will have to work harder to maintain the temperature in your home. This increased energy consumption results in higher energy bills. The longer you delay the repair, the higher your energy bills will become.
  2. A Small Problem Becomes a Big One. Delaying air conditioner repair can further damage the system. The more damage that occurs, the more costly the repair bill becomes. It’s always best to address even small issues as soon as possible.
  3. Decreased Efficiency. A damaged air conditioner will be less efficient at cooling your home, meaning it will have to run for extended periods to maintain your home’s temperature. This wear and tear can shorten the lifespan of your air conditioner.
  4. Unplanned Outage. Delaying air conditioner repair puts you at risk of an unexpected breakdown and no cool air in your home. A broken air conditioner during a heatwave can be dangerous and uncomfortable. You may have to wait a few days to have it fixed or to have a new unit installed. Schedule a repair and avoid an outage.
  5. Decreased Air Quality. A damaged air conditioner can release pollutants into your home, including mold, dust, and bacteria. These can cause allergies, headaches, and respiratory issues.
