Most people will schedule repairs for their air conditioner as soon as they realize that there is a problem with it. Prompt repairs are an excellent way to help your air conditioner last a long time. However, if you really want your system to last as long as possible you’ll need to do a bit more than that. Preventive maintenance is a vital part of keeping your air conditioner running smoothly. It’s so important, in fact, that most manufacturer warranties require it in order to remain valid. Let’s examine why air conditioning maintenance is so important, and why you should schedule it this spring.
Preventive maintenance is important because it allows your HVAC technician to identify and fix issues before they become larger problems. No matter how quickly you react to a perceived problem with your air conditioner, you’re still reacting to it. The problem has already occurred at that point, which means there will likely be some damage that requires repair. Preventive maintenance can stop problems before they get to that point. Scheduling preventive maintenance once a year should be more than enough to ensure that your air conditioner experiences far fewer issues.
So, why schedule your preventive maintenance this spring? The best time to schedule any preventive maintenance for a system is right before you plan on using it more often. As summer is the most stressful time of the year for air conditioners, the best time to schedule maintenance for them would be the spring. By scheduling maintenance with a trained professional during the spring season, you can rest assured that your air conditioner will be in top operating condition for the summer.
