Believe it or not, we’re coming to the end of the cold season already. Before too long, you’re going to be relying on your air conditioner to keep your home cool during the daylight hours. That means now is the perfect time to make sure that your air conditioning system is ready for the added strain. Read on for some of the benefits of scheduling preventive maintenance to prepare your air conditioner for the work ahead.
Why Bother with Preventive Maintenance at All?
You may be thinking that you can actually save money on air conditioner repair costs by not calling for repairs until you have some sort of symptom that your system is in trouble. You would be wrong. Most air conditioning issues don’t offer any kind of warning signs unless they’ve been around for a while, and have finally developed to the point where they can cause serious harm to the system. If you want for some kind of sign that your air conditioner is malfunctioning, you will likely have to pay more in repairs in the long run. The best thing to do is catch problems before they get far enough along to cause issues, and that means preventive maintenance.
Regular preventive maintenance can make your air conditioner up to 40% more energy efficient, and up to 90% less likely to develop issues in the future. It won’t guarantee that your system will never develop issues, but it is about as close as you can get to ensuring that your air conditioner stays in top condition. You can potentially save thousands of dollars on air conditioner repair costs if you schedule maintenance on a regular basis. You need to make sure that you schedule it at the right time, though, which brings us to our second point.
Why Spring is Ideal for AC Maintenance
The best time to schedule maintenance for any HVAC system is the season before it is expected to be put under increased stress. The same is true for air conditioning systems. Spring maintenance resolves any preexisting problems with the air conditioning system, and ensures that it will be in top condition by the time summer arrives. You can schedule maintenance later on in the season if you like. Late maintenance is still far better than not having maintenance done at all. However, if you want the maintenance itself to be as effective as possible, you should still do your best to make sure that it is done during the spring season. So, if you haven’t scheduled preventive maintenance for your air conditioner yet this season, do it as soon as you can! You’ll be glad you did when the temperature starts to rise outside, and you don’t have to worry about your air conditioner buckling under the increased stress.
