Warm Weather Is On The Way: Don’t Forget Your AC Tune‑Up!

Updated January 23, 2024

It’s March, and the official start of spring is almost here, which means we can expect warmer weather in the days ahead. Right now, as we transition between the seasons, is a good time to schedule your annual maintenance to tune up your air conditioning system. HVAC technicians have less hectic schedules between winter and summer (there are fewer emergency calls), making it easy to arrange for a maintenance visit that’s convenient for you.

Why Air Conditioning Maintenance Is Important

Prevents emergency repairs

One of the last things you want to happen during a hot summer day is to have your AC suddenly stop working. But because of the stress that intense hot weather places on an air conditioner, this is the most likely time for one to break down. Maintenance makes sure that an AC is in the best condition possible so that it will sail through the harshest summer weather with little difficulty.

Keeps the system energy-efficient

You will run your home’s air conditioner on most days during the summer, and this will result in some very steep utility bills if the system is wearing down. Maintenance cleans and adjusts an air conditioner so that it doesn’t start to lose its efficiency rating and costs more to operate than it should.

Ensures a long system life

On average, air conditioners can last between 10 to 15 years. But that’s only if the system receives regular maintenance. If left to decline without inspections and tune-ups, an air conditioner may not even make it to half its estimated lifespan, and you’ll end up needing to pay for an expensive replacement.

Reduces the number of repairs

Around 85% of repairs that an air conditioner needs during its lifetime are avoidable thanks to routine maintenance.
