Everyone remembers that time when the A/C had slowed down or stopped working in their home. The nights were the worst. No one slept that night! No matter if you are a renter or home owner, it is always a good thing to get a maintenance check and tune-up on your A/C. If you are like me, it is one of those things that just slips your mind until it breaks down. There are recommended times frames that this could be done. Depending on where you live the times frames could vary a little. Checking with your local HVAC company of your choice could help you with that.
There are two main reasons to have an annual maintenance/tune-up. In the long run this will save you money and a headache later! Doing this will catch small problems and prevent break downs. Fixing small leaks and any kind of debris will prevent stalling in the A/C’s performance. Oiling the motor, calibrating the thermostat, and changing the filters are also a part of the tune-up process. Making sure that your A/C is working to it’s best capacity, allows it to use less energy to cool your home. Your home should be cooling at a certain rate. Depending on the size of the home, it should take up to 15 minutes or so. You should be able to see a difference in your bill every month during the summer. Your A/C’s lifespan should be increased up to 50 percent. The usual lifespan is about 15 years. Having a good working A/C can improve the quality of indoor air. It will also keep the rooms in the home from feeling stuffy. And people with allergies will get a little bit more relief.
Try to get your A/C scheduled for maintenance before you will actually need to, in order for your A/C to be running continuously. Getting it checked during the opposite season is what is really preferred. Spring is what is stated to typically be the best time. The right temperatures are usually around 75 degrees outside to perform maintenance, but again it depends on where you live. Try to schedule way ahead of time. Sometimes waiting until the last minute to do so, will cause you to be scheduled way past your due date. Also you could get better deals with some companies around certain times of the seasons. Shop around and check out the best the deals and with the best reviews. Make sure you check to see about your warranties as well for your A/C units. Sometimes we do run into problems with the A/C unit where something does need to be repaired, and that is when the warranty can be used, before you decide to call a company to come out. At the end of the day it is important to try to put this on your annual list of things to check in your home. The task is to prevent any unnecessary expenses.
