Make Sure You Schedule Maintenance to Get Your AC Ready for Summer

Mar 26, 2018

air-conditioenrSpring may have just started, but summer is on the horizon. Before too long, the days are going to start heating up dramatically. You don’t want to go into the summer season with an unreliable air conditioner, do you? If not, then now is the perfect time to schedule professional air conditioning maintenance for your system. Preventive maintenance is perhaps the single best thing you can do to make sure that your system is ready for the summer season. Read below to find out why that is, and why spring is the best time to have it done.

Preventive Maintenance

Most of the issues that air conditioners tend to deal with are not obvious things. They develop slowly over time, and only start to show outward symptoms after they’ve had plenty of time to cause damage to the system. That means that waiting for a problem to show itself before calling for repairs is only giving that problem more time to damage the system. Ideally, you want to catch problems before they start to show symptoms. That means you need to schedule preventive maintenance.

During a preventive maintenance appointment, your technician will closely examine the system to isolate any problem areas and resolve them before they get any worse. This will increase your system’s energy efficiency, lower the odds of other problems developing, and even lengthen the air conditioner’s lifespan. Assuming, of course, that you schedule it consistently and at the right time. Which brings us to our next point …

Why Spring Maintenance Is Best

You can get some benefit out of preventive maintenance regardless of when you schedule it during the year. It’s certainly better to have it done later than not to have it done at all. However, if you want to get the most out of your maintenance, it’s a good idea to schedule it during the spring season. This will resolve any pre-existing issues that might be exacerbated by the added strain of summer. It will also ensure that your system is as healthy as possible before dealing with the highest-stress season of the year.
