Maintenance and Repairs: Getting Your AC Prepped for Summer

Front elevation of a large contemporary home.In our previous post, we talked about how now is the perfect time of year to get air conditioning maintenance in Coeur d’Alene, ID on your schedule. We’re talking about it again because, it’s just that important. Once temperatures begin to trend upwards, you’ll want to know you can run your AC system for hours a time without a problem.

The last thing you want is your cooling system to break down on you when you need it the most, and the best way to make sure your cooling system is ready for anything summer can bring is to get that maintenance session on your schedule, and follow up with any repairs deemed necessary.

Scheduling Pre-Season Maintenance

This is a preventive measure that without, you could find yourself paying more for repairs, and shortening your cooling system’s lifespan at the same time. Too many homeowners wait to call for professional AC services when they notice a problem.

By doing this, many people think they’re saving money by avoiding unnecessary HVAC service appointments. However, the truth is that most air conditioner malfunctions don’t give off any warning signs—that the average homeowner would notice—until they’ve had a while to damage the system. By the time you notice any strange behavior, it could already be too late to prevent much of the damage the problem may cause.

It’s a far better choice to schedule preventive, pre-season maintenance and catch any problems early, rather than allowing them the chance to develop further. And now is the perfect time to schedule this service, because it ensure that your cooling system is in the best shape possible before being subjected to the added strain of summer.

Call for Follow-Up Repairs

Maintenance allows our technicians to fully inspect each and every component of your air conditioner. It’s during this time that we’ll make any small adjustments deemed necessary, but also alert you to repair needs. Remember, the odds of a larger problem developing are decreased by preventive maintenance.

However, you can’t completely eliminate the possibility of smaller problems, which is what we pinpoint during maintenance. It’s important that when you are alerted to repair needs, that you get those repairs on your schedule as soon as possible! The faster you can have your AC system repaired, the better off the system will be. So what if you already had maintenance, nothing was “wrong,” but you suspect that you may need a repair?

Well, it is better to be safe than sorry—give us a call and we’ll be happy to inspect your system and see what your service needs may be! It might be something as simple as a clogged air filter (you should be changing yours every 1-3 months during periods of system use) or it could be the start of a bigger problem. But getting it checked out right away reduces the likelihood that you’ll be facing an emergency situation soon.
