Is It Too Early to Think About Air Conditioning Maintenance?

Posted on: March 9, 2016

March is already here, and even though the official start of spring won’t come until later in the month, this is the time when we can start to expect warmer temperatures—with some sudden swings back to the cold. You’re probably already thinking about using your home’s air conditioner again, if you haven’t had it running at least once already. But is it time yet to schedule its annual preventive maintenance visit?

The answer is: ­Yes, absolutely. Here are some reasons why:

  • Easy to arrange: The period of transition between the winter cold and summer heat is one of the less busy times of the year for HVAC technicians. They won’t have a schedule jam-packed with emergency service calls. This makes it easier to arrange a time for your maintenance service that’s most convenient for you.
  • Preparation for unpleasant weather surprises: The weather during March and April is notoriously unpredictable. Your heating system may be prepared, but you can’t afford to leave the AC Maintenance will help see that you’re ready for whenever the serious heat starts to hit, confident that when you turn on your cooling system, it will actually do its job.
  • Start saving money now: An air conditioner has plenty of time over the summer to develop issues that can make it energy inefficient. When you turn your AC on during the early spring, you want to make certain that it isn’t costing far more to run than it should. Maintenance will see that it works its best as soon as it is needed.
  • Catch repairs early: When you have an inspection and tune-up done in early spring, it will give you a nice head start on arranging for any repairs that you may need before the serious heat arrives.
