Getting your Sarasota, Florida, home summer-ready means prepping your air conditioner and the best time to do this is during spring. Here’s why scheduling an HVAC tune-up in the springtime, before the hot weather strikes, is smart.
Prevents Untimely Breakdowns
Most people don’t give much thought to the air conditioner until it breaks down. HVAC breakdowns often happen at the most inconvenient times. There’s nothing worse than finding yourself without cool air on a hot and sticky summer day. Getting a tune-up done in spring can avoid untimely HVAC breakdowns and repairs.
In the same way that being stuck without any cool air is unpleasant, suffering discomfort from a poorly functioning air conditioner is just as frustrating. Simple maintenance tasks like changing the air filter, having the ducts cleaned, or topping off refrigerant levels will keep your air conditioner running at an optimum level. Annual maintenance and seasonal tune-ups will keep your system efficient.
Preventative Maintenance Saves Money
Many homeowners balk at the idea of spending money on HVAC maintenance. They don’t see the point in spending money when nothing is broken. However, preventative maintenance can save you a lot of money in the long-term. Regular tune-ups can detect and fix small problems before they become a big expensive job. In addition, a well-functioning air conditioner is more energy-efficient and kinder to your electric bill.
Better Air Quality
During the winter months, your heat pump continues to accumulate dirt, dust, and debris. Rodents and pests may also have taken up residence in ductwork in their search for warmth during the cold weather. Various types of debris and contaminants can be released into the air when you switch the A/C back on. During a spring tune-up, your HVAC technician will clean out the system and keep your home healthy.
