Spring time is almost here. Although we didn’t get much reprieve from the heat anyway this winter, temperatures are about to rise again, meaning you need a fully effective and efficient air conditioning system in place. This means keeping up on your air conditioning services, particularly maintenance and air conditioning repair in Valparaiso, FL.
Is maintenance really that important, though? Well, yes! Especially in Florida, where we use our AC systems on pretty much an hourly basis. Maintenance is basically a tune-up of your air conditioner, much like tuning up your car. During this service, our professional technicians will look at a number of things, such as any early signs of bigger issues that can occur later down the road, any components that need adjusting, and any parts that need to be cleaned.
When Should You Have Maintenance Done?
In almost all cases, we recommend having this service done in early spring, before you need your system the most. This is because technicians are less likely to be busy with emergency service calls, and you can schedule maintenance at your earliest convenience. What matters most, though, is that you have the service done on a regular, annual basis. Doing so will afford you a number of advantages, including:
- Early detection of cooling system problems. There’s not much worse than experiencing a sudden cooling system breakdown on one of the hottest days of the year. It forces you to scramble to schedule repairs, rearrange your schedule to let a service professional in your home, and potentially being stuck with shoddy repairs because you rushed and hired the first repairman you could find. By allowing our pros to catch potential problems during maintenance, it saves you time, and money—repair needs are generally less expensive the sooner they’re found, because they haven’t had to chance to impact other system components.
- Reduced monthly utility bills. Maintenance tune-ups include a lot of small tasks, which together make a big difference. This will include things like tightening loose bolts and changing dirty air filters (though, you should be changing your own air filter every 1-3 months). Doing this and making sure the system is clean helps us ensure your air conditioner will run as efficiently as possible, and therefore reduce your monthly energy bills.
- Longer system lifespan. Maintenance tune-ups help reduce the impact of wear and tear on your air conditioner by treating smaller problems before they grow into bigger ones, thereby lowering the risk of breakdown. When you keep up on maintenance throughout the years, it helps your cooling system perform as expected, year in and year out. It experiences less stress and therefore takes longer to breakdown. Your air conditioner is one of the biggest financial investments you’ll make for your home, so it’s understandable you’d like it to last!
