In hot and humid climates, air conditioning can be a year-long necessity, but during the hottest months of spring and summer, its imperative to ensure that your air conditioning system is running efficiently and will be able to carry you through the cooling season without any major hiccups. With that being said, spring maintenance is necessary to take care of any needed repairs and replacements before the summer heat hits. If you haven’t already scheduled springtime maintenance, there is no time to delay! Here are a few of the reasons why springtime maintenance for your AC system is so important and not to be skipped this season.

 

  • Keeps you comfortable: Regular air conditioning maintenance can help your system to run effectively, keeping your home cool throughout the hottest months of the years. It goes without saying that when your air conditioning is running as it should be, it is able to keep your home cooler and therefore more comfortable. After all – what’s the point in having an air conditioning system if it isn’t working properly?

 

  • Increases air conditioning efficiency: Springtime air conditioning maintenance can help your system to run more efficiently. An efficiently working system doesn’t have to work as hard to keep your home cool, which means not only will you be more comfortable, but you’ll also save in cooling costs throughout the spring and summer.

 

  • Alerts to future problems: Scheduling regular maintenance, especially before the start of a long cooling season, can help you to detect small defects in your system before they become larger and more expensive problems. During springtime maintenance, a professional HVAC contractor will inspect your system and deliver a system tune up, making any necessary small repairs in order to avoid any larger repairs or replacements down the line.

 

  • Prevents emergencies: Picture it – it’s one of the hottest days of the year and you notice that your home isn’t feeling as cool as it should. You go to adjust the thermostat and realize that it isn’t responding to your commands. You can’t even hear your system running! You call your preferred HVAC professional and they don’t have any appointments available today. Springtime maintenance can help you to avoid this type of scenario! In light of an emergency, a team of professionals will do everything they can to help you in a timely manner, but summer is undoubtedly the busiest HVAC season. If you have any questions or concerns about the state of your air conditioning system, now is the time to get it checked out.

 

  • Protects your investment: Let’s face it – air conditioning installation isn’t cheap, so if you have a working air conditioning system already installed in your home, the best thing you can do is properly maintain it to ensure that it will last you for many years to come. Like any important mechanical device in your life, such as your vehicle, your HVAC system requires regular tune-ups in order to keep it working properly. Don’t wait until there is a problem to get your system checked out; be proactive about keeping it working at its best and you’ll able to get the optimal use out of it before it becomes time to replace it.

It’s difficult to fully grasp the importance of a working air conditioning system until your unit suddenly stops working on an especially hot day! Typically, when something like this happens, it’s because your system is not being properly cleaned and maintained on a routing basis. In order to keep your air conditioning system functioning properly, it’s important to ensure that your system is being taking care of and receiving the attention that it deserves from a professional throughout the year. Here are just a few of the reasons why proper air conditioning maintenance is an important step in keeping your system operating at peak efficiency:

Energy Efficiency

It may or may not come as a surprise to you that cooling costs can account for up to 48% of your overall energy bill each month! With that being said, you want to make sure that your air conditioning system is running as efficiently as possible, which will in turn lower energy costs. Routine maintenance will help you to accomplish this.

Safety

It is to be expected that over time, parts of your air conditioning system will loosen, corrode, or become defective. Performing routine inspections and maintenance can help you to catch these small issues before they turn into catastrophic problems. It’s also important to note that if you do notice anything different with your system, you should call a professional HVAC contractor to take a look. Attempting to repair your system on your own can be very dangerous without proper training and understanding of equipment.

Comfort

At the end of the day, your air conditioning system is responsible for one thing – keeping you and your family cool and comfortable! As we already mentioned, routine maintenance will help your system to run efficiently, which will in turn reduce the amount of energy and work it takes to cool your home. You’ll find that a well-cared for and maintained system will properly distribute cool air throughout your living space, making it a pleasant place to be no matter what the temperature is outside.

System Lifespan

Needless to say, when you’re checking your system regularly to ensure that all components are working properly, you’re working to prevent big problems before they occur. By inspecting your system and performing any necessary repairs as they come up, your system will last longer and cost you less money in repairs and replacements over time. The same way you take your car into the shop for tune-ups and inspections, it’s important to do what you can to ensure that your system is operating in good shape. Your air conditioning is, without a doubt, one of the most important systems in your home – don’t take for granted the role it plays in your comfort and quality of life!
