It may seem more than a little absurd to say this in March, when the temperature on any given day could easily dip below freezing, but the sweltering months of summer are not all that far off at all. Before long, you’ll be relying on your air conditioning system to keep you cool on a daily basis. That means more stress on the system, which means a greater chance for problems to occur. If you want to make sure that your air conditioner is in top shape for the summer, you should schedule maintenance for it within the next few weeks. That will give you peace of mind regarding your system’s readiness for the next hot season.

Problems and Prevention
The vast majority of issues that can afflict your air conditioner are not easy to detect. At least, not without any professional equipment and a real close look. You can occasionally notice air conditioning issues because of some sort of external symptom, but it’s pretty rare. Yet, so many homeowners do exactly this! They wait and watch and listen for something to go wrong with their air conditioner, so that they can schedule repairs for it. But by the time they actually do notice that kind of problem with their air conditioner, the issue (whatever it is) is so advanced that they’re going to have to pay more for repairs than they would have if they had gone about things a different way. That different way is to schedule preventive maintenance.
Preventive maintenance is meant to counteract the above issue by proactively searching the system for problem areas. A technician goes down a long checklist, and confirms that each part of the system is in good health, and is working as intended. Any issues with the system can be found and fixed before the added demand of summer causes them to worsen. Assuming that you actually schedule preventive maintenance consistently every year, this kind of maintenance is incredibly beneficial to your air conditioner. It both keeps your system in good shape for a much longer period of time, and can save you quite a bit of money in the long run. There is every reason to schedule preventive maintenance for your air conditioner, and no downside.
The ideal time for maintenance with many systems is the season before they’re going to be put under the most stress. For an air conditioning system, that time is obviously spring. Your technician can make absolutely sure that the system is in top shape before it has to deal with the long daily operating hours of summer. Preventive AC maintenance scheduled every spring will significantly lessen the chances of a problem developing with your air conditioner during the summer. If you haven’t done it yet, now is the time.
