It is officially fall, and many of us have shut down, or are shutting down, our air conditioners for the season. While it may be tempting to wait until spring to schedule HVAC maintenance, it is recommended that your system be scheduled for maintenance bi-annually. There are multiple benefits to scheduling maintenance in both fall and spring, particularly if you use a heat pump to cool your home. If it’s been more than 12 months since your last maintenance appointment, call Sunset Air today and schedule HVAC maintenance in Olympia, WA with one of our specialists.
Benefits of Fall HVAC Maintenance
There are several benefits to scheduling fall maintenance for your air conditioning system:
Puts Your HVAC System in Good Working Order for the Spring
It is a familiar scenario: it’s the first hot day of summer, so you turn on your air conditioner and…. nothing. Maintenance in the fall allows the technician to detect any existing or developing problems with your air conditioner that can be repaired now, not when your AC breaks down.
Helps Increase Energy Efficiency
A worn and dirty air conditioner can’t operate optimally, and as a result, will use more power to achieve your set temperature. Allowing your air conditioner to rest during the winter months when it isn’t being used doesn’t fix or clean the components in your air conditioner. Don’t wait to see your first high energy bill next year before you schedule maintenance – save yourself time and money and schedule it now.
Can Extend the Life of Your Equipment
Replacing an air conditioning system can be a costly endeavor, and one of the main causes of total system breakdown is lack of maintenance. Maintenance keeps your air conditioner and all its components working optimally, and this can help extend the life of the system. Why? Because an HVAC system that isn’t stressed is far less likely to age prematurely.
Fall offers a window of opportunity to schedule maintenance of your heating and cooling system. Call Sunset Air today and schedule an appointment with one of our experts.
