A lot of people will avoid calling an HVAC professional to take a look at their air conditioning system unless something is wrong. The motivating belief behind this is that calling an HVAC technician to come look at your system for “no reason” is a waste of money. While you probably won’t see much benefit from weekly or monthly inspections, you absolutely should have your air conditioning system inspected at least once a year. Read on to find out why preventive maintenance is so important, and why you should schedule yours this spring.
The problem with waiting to call a professional until you notice something wrong is that many air conditioning problems don’t have outward symptoms. The first warning you’ll get from a number of common air conditioning problems is when the system becomes seriously damaged or breaks down completely. Preventive maintenance is the only way to reliably catch these issues before they have the chance to interfere with the system. By giving your HVAC technician a chance to closely examine your air conditioner at least once a year, you are allowing him or her to find and fix any issues that might cause serious problems if left alone.
So, when is the best time to conduct this kind of maintenance? The best time to have any sort of preventive maintenance done is right before a period of increased usage. With air conditioners, that time is spring. If you’re interested in having your air conditioner in top operating condition throughout the summer, spring is the optimal time for preventive maintenance.
