Why Should I Service My A/C in the Spring?

After a long winter off, it might be tempting to skip annual maintenance on your home air conditioner – or at least put it off until the fall, once your system has had a chance to work out the kinks of another cooling season.

The problem with that approach is that you miss out on three or four months of energy savings (on average, even new systems will lose about five percent efficiency each year if left unmaintained). That savings that could possibly offset part or even all of the cost of your service visit, depending on how much you use your AC.

But the benefits of pre-season AC service don’t stop at energy savings: if you get your AC tune-up in the spring, you can also save you money by catching minor issues before they turn into costly repairs, by keeping your equipment running more reliably all season long, and even by preserving your warranty coverage.

Your air conditioner or heat pump works hard to keep your home cool and comfortable, and the inevitable cost of that hard work is wear and tear – perhaps not enough to make an obvious or immediate impact on the performance of your cooling system, but often enough to plant the seeds for long-term problems.

During routine maintenance, our technicians scour your home cooling system to make sure it’s ready for the strain of day-to-day use over the course of a hot Hudson Valley summer – a diligence you’ll appreciate when your system keeps running while your neighbor’s conks out during the season’s first heat wave.

The bottom line: Your home air conditioner is an investment, and like any investment it pays to protect it. A pre-season annual tune-up is a must-have for any home cooling system – schedule yours today!
