The Importance of an AC Tune-up in the Spring

tech-servicing-outdoor-ac-unitYes, we realize that you likely think we have lost our minds to be discussing your air conditioner right now. It has been raining and quite cold so why would anyone be concerned with their cooling systems? The only part of the HVAC system we should be discussing is heating, right? Not quite.

Here’s the deal: it is cold out and spring is making its attempt to push through winter’s chill, which means it is AC maintenance season. In fact, this period of time when it is still chilly out, before the warmth hits us, is actually the best time to get your maintenance done.

5 Reasons Why Air Conditioning Maintenance is a Vital To-Do This Spring

We hear people say all too often that maintenance seems unnecessary or like a repeat service. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Maintenance is important for your air conditioner’s continued operation along with your comfort. Here are some reasons why it is so great and why you want to take advantage of this service soon.

  1. Maintenance saves you time. Scheduling maintenance is a once-a-year thing. When you have a professional technician come by to tune-up up your AC it should be the only visit they really need to make meaning you spend less time having to rearrange around service appointments.
  2. Maintenance saves you energy and money. When your AC gets a maintenance check, it should help to improve its energy efficiency and help it run better than it would have otherwise. This means you’ll be using less energy which will save you money.
  3. Maintenance means fewer repairs. Much like taking your car in to get checked, scheduling a system tune-up for your AC can help you reduce the need for repairs which in turn saves more money and helps to optimize your AC’s lifespan.
  4. Maintenance requires your AC to be off. Here’s why we really encourage early maintenance checks. Your AC unit needs to be off during your tune-up and, if it is sweltering outside, this won’t be fun. During springtime though, you are less likely to need your air conditioner meaning there won’t be a battle between comfort and HVAC system care.
  5. Maintenance can give you a look at the future. Last but certainly not least, you should know that a maintenance check allows you a quick glimpse into the future. What we mean is that during this check your technician can detect and alert you to any major concerns like a system that is on its last leg and needs a replacement, or one that might need a repair in the near future.

There you have it! These are just some of the reasons that now is a great time to jump on the phone to schedule maintenance. Looking for more ways to help make the most of your HVAC in Spokane Valley, WA? We can help. Any questions or service needs you may have, make sure you reach out to us.
