Why Spring Is the Best Time for AC Maintenance & Tune-Ups
We are beginning to see signs of spring throughout Cincinnati, and it has many homeowners excited for warmer weather ahead. It also means that soon heaters will be switched off in favor of air conditioners. Is your unit up to the task? If it hasn’t had a tune-up in a while, the answer may be no! Let’s talk about the importance of AC maintenance and why the spring season is the best time to have it done.
Tune Up or Ship Out
Homeowners often take it for granted that unless there’s a glaring problem, their AC unit will continue operating normally. This is a mistake that could end up costing you major money down the road. Air conditioners work hard in the spring and summer – especially in our area – and over time can build up dust, develop leaks, and wear down small parts. These are minor issues as long as a professional catches them early on and provides a proper fix. But if regular maintenance is put off, they can add up to serious problems that could even result in early replacement of the AC unit. That’s why a preventative tune-up is a smart task to add to your spring to-do list.
A well-maintained system will run more efficiently, lowering utility bills and creating a more comfortable home. It will also improve air quality, reduce the chance of a mid-season breakdown, and live longer. In fact, regular tune-ups can help your AC unit last up to twice as long as one that is disregarded!
Now Is the Time
Cincinnati and the surrounding areas are coming off a harsh winter, which can take a toll on your HVAC unit. Before it has to face the demands of summer, early spring is a great time to have your system checked by a trained technician. They’ll look for any problems that may have developed over the colder months, clean all parts, and ensure the unit is in top shape to provide cool air all summer long.
Spring is also a bit of an off season for HVAC companies, since the mild weather lends itself to fewer emergency calls. That means they’re more available to get the job done when it works best for you with little interruption.
