Spring is here! And that means summer is just around the corner. Pretty soon we’ll be enjoying longer days, road trips and barbecue hangouts. However, it also means temperatures are going to shoot up. If your air conditioner isn’t ready, you may be left suffering in the Florida heat.
The Importance of AC Maintenance
Just like you, your air conditioner needs regular check-ups to ensure it stays healthy. Regular maintenance prevents breakdowns and keeps your system running smoothly. Just some of the benefits of AC maintenance include:
Lower energy bill: Most homeowners dread paying their energy bills during the summer months. However, having your air conditioner regularly tuned up can lower this cost. Over time, dirt, debris and other pollutants can build up in your air conditioner. This makes it harder for your AC to operate, using up more energy. Keeping your system well maintained lowers the amount of energy required, and as a result, lowers your energy bill.
Fewer breakdowns: There is nothing more frustrating than your AC system breaking down in the middle of summer. Not only is it uncomfortable, but not having air conditioning becomes dangerous as temperatures skyrocket. A professional technician performing maintenance will catch any issues with your air conditioning before they become a problem.
Less humidity: As any Florida native knows, it’s not just the summer heat that’s unbearable, but the humidity, too. In addition to making you feel uncomfortable, high humidity levels can also damage your home. Your air conditioner is responsible for protecting your home against excess humidity, but if it isn’t running efficiently, it may not be doing the job. Maintenance ensures your AC is performing at its best, eliminating humidity from your indoor air.
Why Spring Is the Best Time for AC Maintenance
It’s no surprise for homeowners that we demand the most out of our air conditioners during the summer. During these sweltering months, your air conditioner is more likely to break down because you’re asking it to work harder than it has all year long.
That’s why it’s so important to prep your AC before the summer-long heat waves hit. Otherwise, you may be stuck in dangerously hot temperatures, without any air conditioning. Plus, summer tends to be the busiest time for air conditioning companies in Florida, so if you hold off until the middle of July to schedule an appointment, you may be left waiting for maintenance.
