September Is the Time to Schedule HVAC Maintenance for the Coming Months

September is one of the best months of the year to schedule your annual HVAC maintenance. Summer is winding down and you’re about to switch over from air conditioning to heating. You want to make sure that your AC is in good condition before turning it off for the fall and winter months.

System Efficiency 

Regular AC maintenance is the best way to ensure energy efficiency. Over time your unit can begin to work harder to meet your cooling needs. A few tweaks during an AC tune-up can improve efficiency and lighten the load on your unit. This benefits you by lowering your overall energy costs from month to month now, but also over the life of the unit. 

Overall Longevity

And efficiency has other benefits, too. An efficient unit does not have to work as hard to cool your home on a day-to-day basis. Even if it’s only a small difference, it can add up over the lifetime of your air conditioner. The average air conditioner will last for around 15 years. Skipping out on maintenance can mean you lose as much as five years off the life of the unit. But consistently investing in annual tune-ups can do the opposite. It can extend the lifespan by five years or more. 

Home Comfort

An efficient air conditioner is going to keep your home more comfortable. If your air conditioner is not efficient, it may result in hot and cold spots or inconsistent temperatures throughout the day. And let’s face it, for that kind of investment, you want your air conditioner to work great, not just so so. 

Save Money

What if you were able to compare the costs side-by-side for AC maintenance versus just giving out on maintenance and spending money on repairs instead? You would find that investing in regular AC tuneups is much more affordable than rolling the dice on potential repairs.

You may get lucky and not have a lot of issues, but you may also be unlucky and face major AC issues over the life of the unit. Do you really want to take that chance? Plus, investing in AC maintenance is saving you money over the entire life of the unit—not just now in the short term.

Peace of Mind

There’s also something to be said for the peace of mind in knowing that your air conditioner is working great. After an AC tune-up, you can rest assured knowing that your air conditioner is working as well as possible. You can check this item off of the long list of things that you have to think about.
