Is It Ever Too Late for AC Maintenance?

ac-maintenance-ever-too-lateIn short, in the absence of a full system breakdown, no. True, we typically recommend scheduling this service before the weather starts heating up, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still reap the benefits of this service as summer officially begins. Arranging for this service ASAP will benefit you in many ways.

And remember, although there are a few basic jobs you can do on your own when it comes to New Braunfels, TX air conditioning services (like changing the air filter), full system maintenance that makes a difference must be left to the professionals! Only a trained HVAC technician can handle the various tasks, such as inspecting motors and electrical connections, and cleaning coils and moving parts, that all go into a complete maintenance check-up.

No matter the time of year, you can count on our technicians for quality maintenance each and every time.

How AC Maintenance Benefits You

One of the most common questions HVAC professionals get in regards to maintenance is, “Isn’t it okay to skip just one year?” No, this will to more harm than good. Maintenance isn’t simply a luxury, it’s a necessity to avoid cumulative problems.

There are a number of advantages to investing in annual cooling maintenance, all of which apply to heating maintenance as well. Keep reading to learn more.

  • You Can Rely On Your Air Conditioner: The most immediate benefit of routine air conditioner maintenance is a cooling system that’s less likely to suffer a major operational problem over the summer. Professional inspections find places where strain on the system could lead to breakdowns, while cleanings and adjustments further eliminate potential problems. With a well-cared for AC system, you can enter summer with the confidence that you likely won’t need any emergency services all season.
  • You’ll See Greater Energy Efficiency: The accumulation of wear and tear on your AC creates more stress on its components—especially to the blower motor. This creates higher energy bills, since the system is trying to overcome the added strain. If a cooling system receives annual maintenance, it should typically retain 95% of its efficiency throughout its service life.
  • Your Cooling System Will Last Longer: Speaking of service life, most cooling systems should last between 10–15 years before requiring a replacement. However, this is only possible if that system has routine professional maintenance done. Annual inspections and tune-ups will help your HVAC system give you the best return on investment by lasting as long as possible.
  • You’ll Find Yourself Calling Less for Repairs: It’s only natural that you don’t want to spend extra money throughout the year to have your air conditioner repaired. The good news is that the majority of the repairs a cooling system might need during its service life are preventable thanks to maintenance inspections that catch problems early. This means huge savings in repair bills.

When it comes time for you to arrange for your next tune-up, keep our team in mind. Our maintenance program includes greatly discounted rates and priority service!
