Spring is upon us and with that comes out the checklist of things to do to prepare our homes for the warmer weather and A/C servicing should be at the top of that list. Angie’s List compares keeping your A/C unit serviced to getting an oil change in your car. It’s agreed that scheduling an annual tune-up remains the best way to keep your air conditioning unit running at peak performance. There are plenty of reasons why you shouldn’t wait for A/C servicing so let’s review the top 4!
1. Saving time
Since regular service catches many problems before they happen, it saves you from having to take more time off for larger repairs that would have gone undetected. Not only does it save on your time, it also cuts down on the amount of time you will have to pay the technician to be on-site.
2. Saving money
HomeAdvisor jokes there are two main reasons to schedule annual A/C servicing; saving money and saving money. All kidding aside, regular A/C servicing keeps your system working at its most efficient, which means it uses less energy to cool your house. Resulting in lower energy bills, which means you keep your money in your wallet where it belongs.
Many service companies see a spike in demand at the beginning of summer. With the impending heat coming, everyone wants A/C servicing done, and scheduling can become difficult. However, there can be a lull at the tail end of winter and beginning of spring, and the servicing company may be able to better fit you in during a time that works best for you. By planning ahead and getting your A/C servicing done between seasons, it’s likely you’ll find it much more convenient to get an appointment.
4. Preventing complete system failure
We have covered that scheduling regular A/C servicing will help your technician catch any potential problems early. This not only saves you money as mentioned above, but it will help identify issues before your unit completely goes out; inevitably on the hottest day of the year. Avoid these emergencies by having your A/C serviced early and regularly. Not to mention, fixing a small leak is much less expensive than buying a new compressor because low refrigerant levels have burnt your current one out.
While spring has finally arrived in MD, temperatures haven’t warranted keeping on your air conditioning system just yet. That will change and soon so instead of waiting until the last minute, consider scheduling your A/C service as early as possible.
