Why the End of Winter is the Best Time for an Air Conditioning Service

Here’s why now is the perfect time to schedule an air conditioning service.

If you’re like most people, your home’s air conditioner is probably the last thing on your mind right now. It’s still winter in the South Bay, which means you likely won’t need to think about cooling your home at all this month. And yet, we’re here to tell you that there is no better time than now to schedule an air conditioning service. Here are four great reasons to schedule an air conditioning service at the end of winter.

1.  Your HVAC technician isn’t as busy during this time of the year.

During the summer when everyone is using their air conditioners around the clock, HVAC technicians are in high demand. By scheduling an AC inspection, routine maintenance appointment, replacement, or AC repair service for the off season, you won’t have to worry about fighting for an ideal service time.

2. Routine AC maintenance during the off season can save you time and money.

We see this happen too often. Your AC unit isn’t working 100% correctly, but you don’t know it, so you continue using it regularly until it breaks down (seemingly out of nowhere). What may have started as a small issue was made worse by frequent use and stress on your AC unit. When this happens, you can be forced to deal with costly repairs in order to get your air conditioner back to proper working condition.

Fortunately, these types of situations can be avoided! If you had scheduled a routine maintenance appointment before you started relying on your air conditioner, your HVAC technician could have saved you a lot of unnecessary stress, time, and money. By scheduling an air conditioning service while you’re not using your air conditioner, you’re letting your HVAC technician catch any issues before they’re able to get worse.

3. If you need to repair or replace your AC unit, you won’t be inconvenienced.

After an inspection or maintenance appointment, you may find out that your AC unit is not working as well as it should. While some repairs can be done quickly, others—including replacing your entire unit—can leave you without the use of your air conditioner for hours or days, depending on your situation. When this happens during the summertime—especially during a heat wave—it can be more than just a little annoying. By catching the problem and fixing it when you don’t need your air conditioner, you won’t have to worry about it interrupting your daily life.

4. Regular AC maintenance during the off season can extend the life of your unit.

Typically, air conditioning units are meant to last for 10-15 years—with some lasting as long as 25 years. If you want to avoid having to replace yours before its time, you should be scheduling regular AC maintenance services throughout the year. Your HVAC technician will ensure that your entire system is clean and working to the best of its capabilities. Not only will this help extend the life of your unit, but it can save you money on your energy bills throughout the warm season!
