What are the Benefits to Early A/C Maintenance?

Here in Olympia, WA, air conditioning systems are being dusted off in anticipation of another warm summer. That means you may want to think about scheduling a maintenance session to clean off the dirt, recharge the refrigerant and check the system carefully for signs of any larger problems. You should make such a session a regular part of your air conditioner’s life, but the sooner you schedule it, the better. What are the benefits to early A/C maintenance? The bottom line is there’s only one: money back in your pocket.

A maintenance session improves the overall efficiency of your unit: removing dirt that causes friction, recharging refrigerant to make the air cooler, and securing any loose or rattling components.  The longer you delay a session, the more you’ll lose in efficiency, which translates to higher monthly energy bills and lost money. A quick approach ensures that your system is ready to go when the first hot day hits, and that it won’t use any more energy than it has to.

Furthermore, in the event that repairs are necessary, catching it early gives you the maximum amount of flexibility to cover it. More time before heating season starts means that you can set up a bigger repair session at a time that’s convenient to you, in between all of the other things going on in your busy life. Contrast that to an unexpected breakdown later in the summer — the sort of thing a maintenance session could have caught — forcing you to drop everything and schedule repairs before the lack of air conditioning turns your home into an oven. The more you delay, the less flexibility you have and the greater the chances of an unexpected breakdown at the worst possible time.
