With the official end of summer just a little over a month away, soon enough our weather will be cooling and we’ll be turning our thoughts to our heating systems, rather than our air conditioners. Perhaps you’ve realized with the busy-ness that summer brings that you never arranged for Del City, OK air conditioning maintenance during this time. Could you just go ahead and skip it this year? It’s too late now, right?
Absolutely not—it’s never too late to care for your air conditioner. In fact, this is a great example of “it’s better late than never!” There are a number of benefits you will obtain by investing in routine maintenance (once a year for conventional air conditioners and twice a year for year-round heat pump systems) no matter what time of the year it is.
The End of Summer Is Better Than Never
The important thing to remember about our weather is that temperatures very rarely get down to the frigid level as other parts of the country. In fact, we’ve been known to have 80-degree days in the middle of wintertime. That being said, our air conditioners need to be ready any time of the year to do their job. So if you want to have your maintenance appointment done now, then you should have it down now. Remember:
- Skipping a year of maintenance means spending more to run your air conditioner. It’s true—on average, each year your cooling system goes without maintenance, it loses about 5% of its efficiency. This drop off gets steeper over time, and when efficiency drops, your utility bills will rise, meaning you’ll find yourself paying more for all the time you run your air conditioner.
- Maintenance helps you avoid a premature system breakdown. The most apparent benefit for having regular AC tune-ups is that you’ll prevent your air conditioner from suddenly shutting down on you during a sweltering hot day. We still have plenty of them coming in the weeks away, so you want your air conditioner ready to get through it all!
- You can prevent unnecessary repairs. Do you really want to start spending the money you should be using to enjoy the rest of summer on air conditioning repairs instead? Just the simple precaution of preventive maintenance, no matter when you have it done, takes care of about 80% of the repairs your air conditioner might need!
