On a hot, humid summer day, there is nothing like turning on your air conditioner and enjoying the cool comfort it provides. Did you know that it needs regular maintenance to run at its best? That's why we recommend that our customers schedule their AC maintenance in the spring before the hot weather arrives. However, some customers wonder if AC maintenance is worth the price tag.
When is the best time to schedule AC maintenance?
You should schedule annual maintenance in the season before you plan to use your system. For summer, you should schedule your AC tune-ups in early spring. The earlier you schedule, the sooner your system will be ready to go — wait too long, and you could end up in long service queues as HVAC technicians enter their busy season.
A well-maintained cooling system can make all the difference in your home comfort this summer. With regular maintenance, your HVAC system is more energy-efficient (meaning it costs less to operate) and can go longer without needing expensive repairs or replacements.
What are the benefits of Spring AC Maintenance?
1. Your system will last longer.
You can ensure top performance throughout the life of your system with preventative maintenance. Particularly in areas like Maine, where winters are cold and summers are hot and humid. Keeping your AC system running efficiently and effectively is one of the best financial choices you can make for your home.
2. Ensures better air quality
The HVAC unit is cleaned by a highly trained professional familiar with the system you have. The particulates may accumulate in your duct system and spread throughout your home if they accumulate. If left unattended, this situation might also necessitate duct cleaning and additional expenses.
3. Enhances energy efficiency
Blades, cooling coils, and other parts of the unit are inspected and cleaned as part of the maintenance process. When coils are kept clean at least annually, they can provide cooler temperatures and save more energy. Stay cool and lower your energy costs.
4. Provides greater comfort
The technicians inspect all of the air conditioner's essential components during the preventative maintenance visit. They are able to spot any issues or irregularities. If your system is functioning properly, you will enjoy uninterrupted comfort while indoors.
5. Repairs and service calls are more cost-effective.
In reality, regular maintenance of air conditioners, heat pumps, and similar units is worth the time and effort. A maintenance checkup is similar to a doctor's or dentist's appointment so that HVAC professionals can make sure your unit is functioning properly. The unit can be repaired or replaced if any damaged or worn parts are found before further deterioration would damage other components or impede its operation. Preventing a problem now will save you money later.
