AC Preventive Maintenance

The Cassidy Care Difference

Priority Service, 20% Discount on Repairs, Reduced Electrical/Water Bills

One of the most important systems for a home or business is its air conditioning system. The cost of a maintenance plan for your cooling and heating system relative to the cost of repair or replacement if your unit is not properly maintained is significant. Here’s why:

  • 90 percent of system breakdowns on units less than 10 years old could have been prevented had the unit been regularly and properly maintained by a professional.
  • On average, a single repair costs as much as twice the price of a basic maintenance plan, three times the price of a single system tune-up, and 50 times the price of replacing your entire system.
  • A maintenance plan is not the same as insurance because you’re receiving regular tangible service on your system to help prevent mechanical and electrical breakdown.


In addition to the peace of mind you get from knowing the likelihood of a system breakdown is significantly reduced, regularly maintained cooling and heating systems:

  • Run more efficiently
  • Cost less to operate
  • Last longer than unmaintained systems
  • Provide better cooling and heating airflow
  • Provide higher quality indoor air

We offer flexible and customizable plans to meet your needs. At John C. Cassidy Air Conditioning & Plumbing, no job is too big or small.

How often should I schedule AC maintenance?

It is typically advised that you schedule AC maintenance at least once a year. Ideally, this should be completed before the cooling season begins to ensure peak performance when you need it most. However, if your system is older or has regular troubles, biannual maintenance may be recommended. Regular maintenance helps identify and treat possible problems early on, boosting efficiency, prolonging the life of your unit, and reducing the chance of unexpected breakdowns during peak consumption times.

What are the benefits of regular AC maintenance?

Frequent maintenance of air conditioners has several advantages, such as improved performance and efficiency, which reduces energy costs. By spotting and fixing minor problems before they get worse, it helps your system last longer. Routine maintenance also lowers allergens and pollutants by cleaning and changing filters, ensuring better air quality. Additionally, it offers comfort in knowing that your system is operating at peak efficiency, reducing the possibility of unplanned malfunctions and expensive repairs, and preserving a cozy interior climate all year round.

What does an AC maintenance service typically include?

An AC maintenance service normally involves a thorough evaluation of the system to look for leaks, loose connections, and damaged components. The technician will clean or replace air filters, coils, and fins to increase efficiency and airflow. They will also lubricate the moving parts to decrease friction and wear. Refrigerant levels will be checked and filled up as needed, and the thermostat set for precise temperature control. Finally, the expert may propose any necessary repairs or upgrades to improve system performance.
