We’re coming to the end of summer now, and you may already be thinking about what to do to get your home ready for the heating season. Hold on just a second, though! You may not be done with your air conditioning system just yet. If you haven’t scheduled maintenance for your air conditioner yet this year, you should do it before the season is over. Yes, even though you’re already practically done with using the system for this year. Have a look below at why it’s so important for you to have your air conditioner checked out by a professional every year.
Air Conditioning Problems are Tough to Catch
The main reason that you want to schedule preventive maintenance once a year is because air conditioning issues are actually pretty tough to catch without professional training. Most problems that are going to afflict your air conditioner are going to develop subtly. By the time you notice that your air conditioner is struggling with a problem, it may have already become damaged by that problem. That means higher repair bills for you when you get the issue fixed. The better way to deal with air conditioning problems is to catch them as early as possible. That means scheduling preventive maintenance at least once a year.
Preventive maintenance appointments provide your technician with the opportunity to locate and resolve issues long before they have the opportunity to develop far enough to cause problems. Doing this on a regular basis can reduce the chances of a serious issue cropping up with your air conditioner by up to 90%, and can improve the efficiency of your system by up to 40%! If you want to get all those great benefits, though, you need to make sure that you schedule maintenance for your system on a consistent basis.
When to Schedule Maintenance?
The best time to schedule preventive maintenance for your air conditioner is actually during the spring season. Having it done right before the higher stress months of summer will ensure that your air conditioner is in the best possible shape to cope. It will also mean that you save the most money off the efficiency boost you get from maintenance.
Of course, right now we’re about as far from spring as you can get. Why are we bringing this up now, then? Because it’s always better to have maintenance conducted later in the year than to skip it entirely. You won’t get to take advantage of the efficiency bump a much as you would have if you’d scheduled it sooner, but at least your air conditioner will be in good shape for the rest of this season. So, make sure that you call a professional you trust to take care of your system today.
