It’s no secret that air conditioning repairs can get expensive, depending on the severity of the problem being fixed. In light of this, some people have decided that in order to save money, the best thing to do is to wait until their air conditioner breaks down before calling for repairs. This is a bad idea for a number of reasons.
First, it doesn’t actually save money. A problem severe enough to cause a breakdown is definitely going to cost more after the fact than it will to fix it before it gets to that point. Second, subjecting the air conditioner to repeated breakdowns is a surefire way to shorten its lifespan considerably. If you really want to save money on air conditioner repairs, the best thing you can do is schedule preventive maintenance.
What Is Preventive Maintenance?
Preventive maintenance is essentially a tune-up, where your HVAC technician will examine your air conditioner and fix any developing problems before they get out of hand. The earlier these problems are caught, the less damage they will cause and the less money you’ll have to spend on future repairs. This will also vastly improve the health and longevity of your air conditioner. Preventive maintenance is so important to the health of HVAC systems that many manufacturers require it in order to remain valid.
So why schedule preventive maintenance during spring? Well, the best time to schedule preventive maintenance for anything is right before you plan on using it most heavily. In your air conditioner’s case, that means during the spring before summer sets in. By scheduling preventive maintenance every spring, you ensure that your air conditioner will be ready to face the added stress of summer.
