Throughout the fall of 2015, we kept hearing non-stop about the coming weather-pocalypse of El Niño. For a while, it even seemed like we were in for a long, wet winter. But, here we are in early February and it’s already over 80 degrees outside. It’s uncertain whether or not this sudden heat wave will last, but it’s likely that we’re through with the worst of the cold weather. That means it’s time to start preparing for the warmer temperatures characteristic of Southern California. Let’s take a look at the benefits of air conditioning maintenance.
Catching Problems Early
Most people wait to call for repairs until a problem with the air conditioner makes itself known. This is actually a pretty big mistake. The longer a problem is left alone, the more damage it can cause to the system. By the time you notice an air conditioning problem, it may have already caused hundreds of dollars’ worth of damage to the system.
Preventive maintenance, on the other hand, can catch problems long before they get bad enough to threaten the air conditioner. As long as you’re sure to schedule preventive maintenance on an annual basis, you can potentially save thousands of dollars in repair costs over the life of the air conditioner.
Ideally, the best time to schedule maintenance for an air conditioner is during the spring. This ensures that the air conditioner is in prime condition before the stressful time of summer arrives. We’re in Southern California, though, and with the sudden heat wave it’s probably a good idea to just get the maintenance done now.
