In many parts of the country, the temperatures are starting to get balmier. Before the hot and sunny days of summer are upon us, homeowners should have their air conditioners inspected. By getting your AC repairs done early, you’ll never have to deal with a sweltering house in the middle of a heat wave. Here are just a few reasons you should schedule your AC repairs and inspections during the spring.
- Increase energy efficiency
Over the course of a year, your AC unit can become clogged with dust, pollen, and debris. This can really impact how well your air conditioner operates, which result in higher energy bills and may even lead to more frequent HVAC repairs. Your technician will inspect and clean your unit to ensure your system is working to its full capacity. This will keep your home cooler and your expenses lower all summer long.
- Improve air quality
Spring is prime allergy season, and it’s easy for pollen to get trapped in old filters. In addition, your ducts could contain mold, fungi, bacteria, dust, or insects — all of which can severely affect the quality of your air in your home. A spring inspection can ensure your filters are changed and your ducts are cleaned, making your home a lot more comfortable and safe for the future.
- Solve problems quickly
Most importantly, a spring inspection will allow you to address small or potential issues before they become huge problems. For instance, air conditioners last anywhere from 10 to 15 years; if yours is older or is on the cusp, having a yearly inspection can tell you whether you should have a new one installed before the summer starts. From leaks to low coolant levels, your technician can tell you whether there are problems you need to solve right away. That way, your unit won’t quit on you when you need it most.
