With the weather finally starting to feel spring or even summer-like, it is time to schedule your heating and cooling (HVAC) company to conduct their spring tune up of your AC system. Don’t have a contract with an HVAC company? Well you should, and here are some reasons why:
- First and foremost, obviously, you want to minimize the risk of losing your AC during the hottest days of summer. For some this is simply a question of comfort, but for the elderly or infirm it can be a matter of life or death. By conducting a thorough inspection your HVAC tech can identify and replace parts that are worn or that might be susceptible to failure. This will eliminate some of the most common causes of AC outages.
- Even a well maintained system will encounter failures due to weather, power surges and other outside factors. By having a contract, and a relationship, with a qualified HVAC company you will guarantee a speedy response and will minimize the duration of your outage. If you contract does not buy you 24 hour emergency service then you probably should look for another provider.
- A comprehensive maintenance program will keep your AC operating efficiently which will save you money on your ennergy bill while also prolonging the life of your system. Since replacing your AC will run you several thousand dollars, making the up front investmentt to extend its life is well worth it.
