We’ve got a warm day here and there sprinkled throughout the next couple of weeks, but we certainly aren’t going to be running our air conditioners nonstop in the immediate future. Don’t let that fact lead to complacency, though. You don’t want the onset of the summer heat to catch you off guard, nor your air conditioner unprepared. If it has been a full cooling season since you last scheduled routine air conditioning maintenance in Washington, D.C., then now is the time to do so. Keeping up with an annual maintenance program is a necessity if you hope to cool your home as efficiently and reliably as possible.
Some homeowners get very caught up in the time of the year in which they schedule routine air conditioning maintenance. In truth, though, the time of the year is not the most important consideration. There are arguments to be made for scheduling air conditioning maintenance before the start of cooling season, or at the close of the season. What is important, though, is that you stick to a yearly schedule. If you had your system maintained last spring, you must not wait until this fall to do so again. One maintenance service per cooling season is necessary if you hope to keep your system in the best working condition possible.
The benefits of scheduling professional air conditioning maintenance with a qualified technician are too great to ignore. We mentioned above that doing so will help your system to work more efficiently. This is due to the simple fact that a finely-tuned system, with clean, well-lubricated parts, proper refrigerant levels, etc., is going to require less energy to effectively cool a home than a poorly maintained system is going to. Plus, you are much less likely to encounter serious operational problems with your system if you are diligent in scheduling routine air conditioning maintenance.
