Soon we will be in between major seasons. Temperatures will begin to warm up, but they won’t yet be hot. You may find yourself running the heater on some days and the air conditioner on others. Before you turn your air conditioner on full blast for the summer months, you need to schedule an air conditioning service in O’Fallon.

But you may be wondering, is now the best time to schedule AC maintenance? The short answer is yes, and we can explain why. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of scheduling AC maintenance right now as we head into spring. Then, give our team a call to schedule your service and rest easy all spring and summer long, knowing that your air conditioner is ready to keep your family cool.

Timing for AC Maintenance

Scheduling AC maintenance annually for your air conditioner is paramount to keeping the unit running both effectively and efficiently. As long as you schedule maintenance once each year, the timing is less important.

Some customers prefer to schedule AC maintenance now, in the spring, ahead of the heavy-use months in the summer. Other customers prefer to wait until the fall and schedule maintenance after the heavy-use season. Either time of the year is just fine.

If you skipped out on AC maintenance last year altogether, it is even more important that you schedule the service now. If you’ve been putting off the appointment, we encourage you to go ahead and schedule service now instead of putting it off even longer. Servicing your air conditioner ahead of the summer months is a great way to ensure that your air conditioner is ready to keep your family cool all season long.

Other Considerations on Timing

If you have a heat pump system that operates as both an air conditioner and heater, you should really be scheduling service for the unit twice each year. If you scheduled a maintenance appointment last year for your heat pump, you need to do it again now for the spring.

This is because your heat pump is operating as both an air conditioner and a heater. The components are working nonstop all year long and require extra care compared to standalone air conditioners or heaters.

Risks of Skipping Out on Maintenance

One of the greatest risks you face when you skip out on maintenance is voiding your manufacturer’s warranty. Many air conditioners come with a 10-year warranty that covers anything major that goes wrong with your unit within the warranty period.

However, these manufacturer’s warranties require that you keep up with professional maintenance as part of your homeowner responsibility to care for the unit. When you skip out on maintenance, you run the risk of voiding your manufacturer’s warranty. If something goes wrong before the warranty period is up, the manufacturer may not cover repairs if you skipped out on professional service.
