When the weather warms, hundreds of thousands of Utah households will turn on their air conditioners. While in many cases the AC will still work and keep homes cool and comfortable, that doesn’t mean that your system doesn’t require maintenance. In the worst-case scenario, your AC unit may not turn on at all and your system may require emergency service or replacement.
Since during the winter, most air conditioning systems have been basically shut off, March and April are the perfect time to call an HVAC technician to have your system serviced before it gets too hot and due to demand, there is more limited service availability. This is especially true if you have a home in St. George where spring temperatures can reach the triple digits and in summer, it can hit 115 degrees.
Here are just a few reasons why you should have your air conditioning system serviced this spring.
It takes a lot of energy and money to run an air conditioner, so you want to make sure that your system will work like it’s supposed to as soon as you need it. An old air conditioner or one connected to dirty filters or ducts won’t work as well as one that is clean and like new. It will have to work twice as hard to do the job of a new unit, and that will cause your energy bills to rise and its cooling abilities to be less than ideal.
Even if you don’t have a brand-new air conditioner, you can still get the most out of your unit without having to pay extra to the electric company and get more cool air. Change your air filters as needed, and contact an HVAC service professional to have your system serviced. You can get more tips to save your AC bill here.
Calling an HVAC technician to take a look at your functional air conditioner may sound unnecessary, but doing so could help uncover a problem that needs to be addressed. A minor repair will be much easier and less expensive to fix than a major one, so don’t hesitate to schedule a service. You might end up saving yourself a huge headache in the future.
Air conditioners do more than just keep homes cool; they reduce humidity and keep mold and pollutants out of your home. If you have a home with very young children, older adults with compromised immune systems or anybody with allergies, you should have your air conditioner working at its peak efficiency.
These are just a few reasons why you should have your air conditioning system serviced this spring. The need for keeping your house cool will, of course, depend on where you live, but you want your system to be running smoothly when the peak air conditioning season hits.
Call your local Utah County or St. George HVAC service provider now, so you can be sure to have a functional and reliable air conditioner when you really need it.
