In our previous blog post, we talked about the importance of AC maintenance, and how it’s never too early for such a service. But even if you’ve heard why it’s important, you might not really believe it until you know exactly what happens during this service.

The fact of the matter is, with a climate like ours, maintenance isn’t just an optional service. It’s absolutely necessary to the efficiency and efficacy of your air conditioner. Without maintenance, you can find yourself paying for unexpected repair needs, plus your system may even have a shower lifespan.

If you’ve ever asked an HVAC professional when the best time to schedule air conditioner maintenance is, they probably told you “in the early spring, before you need your air conditioner the most.” This is a good recommendation! Of course, you still might be wondering if you really need maintenance. After all, why pay for an air conditioner service when your air conditioner is operating “just fine”?

Well, because sometimes “just fine” isn’t good enough! What if your cooling system isn’t operating as efficiently as it could? This means you’re paying too much to use it, and also that it’s probably accumulating wear and tear a lot faster than it should otherwise. Maintenance is a preventative measure, not a repair. With maintenance, you can reduce repairs, increase your system’s lifespan, and improve your household’s home comfort. Read on to learn more!

Signs You Need Late-Season AC Repairs

Monday, September 28th, 2020

It may officially be fall, and it may almost be time to shut down our air conditioners for the season, but that doesn’t mean you should ignore cooling system problems if you have them. In fact, doing so could leave you with a completely broken down system next spring when you need it the most.

Basically, the longer you wait to service your cooling system, the more you increase your chances of experiencing HVAC problems. This is especially true if your air conditioner shares ductwork with your furnace, or if you have a heat pump that you’ll be using for heating in addition to cooling.

So what can you do? Watch for signs of AC trouble and ensure you call our team if you notice any of the following issues!

How old is your air conditioner? How efficiently has it worked so far this summer? These are just a couple of the questions you should ask yourself before summer ends. Now is the time of year that older air conditioners are most likely to break down, since they’ve gone through so much work over the past several months.

Of course, if you keep up with your annual AC maintenance appointments, this is less likely to happen. But regardless of whether you had that tune-up or not, no air conditioner can last forever. And even if your aging AC system makes it to the end of summer, can you be confident it’ll be ready to work effectively and efficiently next summer? It’s best to consider replacement now, especially if the following 3 facts are true for your cooling system.
