It may be a while before we see the California sunshine we know and love, but if you’ve lived in the Sacramento area for even just a year, you know that when summer does come, it’s not very forgiving—and you need to ensure that your cooling system is prepared.
One of the most important things you can do to make sure this is the case is to schedule preventive maintenance for the system. Routine professional AC maintenance ensures that your equipment is ready for the added stress of summer.
Skipping or even delaying maintenance will make it much more likely you’ll be facing problems by the end of the cooling season, or even before! Read on as we uncover the importance of this service.
AC Problems Can Be Hard to Find
The average homeowner can’t, and shouldn’t, expect to be able to spot problems with their air conditioner easily. In fact, most air conditioning system malfunctions don’t even give off early warning signs. If there is an issue with your cooling system that is giving off obvious symptoms, then the problem has likely been around long enough to start doing damage.
Waiting for warning signs to present themselves before calling for professional service is probably the wrong approach to take. Instead, we recommend you schedule maintenance to be proactive about any cooling system problems you may face.
Preventive maintenance gives our professionals the chance to thoroughly check over your air conditioner. We’ll isolate problems and resolve them by making adjustments, or by alerting you to repair needs so you can get them on your schedule. Being consistent and diligent with your maintenance sessions will increase your air conditioner’s efficiency, reduce the chance of your system developing future problems, and extend the life of your equipment.
Schedule Your Maintenance Today!
Sure, right now it’s not even warm enough to take your sweater off outdoors, but nonetheless we usually recommend springtime for your air conditioning maintenance appointments, since this will put the system in its best health possible right before the summer strain. We’ll be able to alert you to repair needs, and you can manage them long before you need your system on a daily or even hourly basis.
Of course, just because springtime is the best time to get AC maintenance done, doesn’t mean you should skip it altogether if you miss that time. It’s better to have maintenance done a bit later than to skip it. In fact, this is particularly true if you are using a heat pump or ductless system, since these are 2-in-1 systems are used for both cooling and heating.
Since heat pump systems go through so much work throughout the year, it’s important that they receive a tune-up every 6 months. If it has been longer than this since your last heat pump maintenance tune-up, now is the best time to give us a call!
