Should I Schedule AC Maintenance in the Spring?

Spring is just around the corner, and that means that before long you are going to be turning to your air conditioning system once more. As temperatures begin to rise, you need to know that your air conditioner is in the great condition necessary for operating as efficiently and effectively as possible. That means that your system must be well-maintained.  Scheduling routine air conditioning maintenance in Wellington, CO is the only way in which you can hope to get the very best performance that your air conditioner has to offer. Some homeowners fail to stick to a routine maintenance schedule, though, and that is when they wind up in trouble. 

The Season Doesn’t Matter As Much As Annual Completion

Some homeowners get hung up on the season in which their air conditioner is maintained, but in truth this is not the most important consideration to make. While many homeowners may choose to have their system tuned up before going into a new cooling system, others prefer to have it done at the end of the cooling season, just after the AC has completed its work for the year. Either case is fine, so long as you stick to the schedule that you decide upon.

For instance, if you have your air conditioner tuned-up at the close of the heating season, you really don’t need to have that system tuned-up again in the springtime. You should wait until fall, and stick to that once-a-year schedule. If you have your system tuned up in the spring, though, and realize the following year that you’ve forgotten to schedule service, you shouldn’t wait until the end of the coming cooling season to schedule service. This means that your system will have two summers under its belt without maintenance service, and that is too much of a risk to take.
