As summer draws to a close, many homeowners are remembering that they need to schedule late season/fall air conditioning services, specifically maintenance. Maintenance services on your A/C ensures that it will be in perfect working order late next spring or early summer when you flip it on for the first time to cool down your home. If you have not scheduled your maintenance check and appointment yet, you best hurry. Time for scheduling appointments is quickly running out, and most HVAC contractors and technicians are filling up their schedules for these appointments. Here are the reasons why you need to do this right now.
When You Do Not Need the A/C Anymore, You Will Forget
Out of sight, out of mind; that is what they say, and it is very true of air conditioning. When you are not using it anymore for the year, you are not thinking about it at all. When you are not thinking about it, you are not thinking about scheduling any sort of maintenance appointment for it either. Since this is an appliance you are not regularly walking past and staring at, you are not likely to be reminded to call for maintenance, either. It will go undone, and then you might find yourself in a lot of hot water, er, hot air next summer.
Mid-August to Mid-September Gets Really Busy
Labor Day, followed by the kids going back to school, and then preparing to settle into school routines makes for very busy days ahead. It is not just busy for you, but for the HVAC professionals as well. They have back to back appointments and twelve-hour days ahead as they work through all of the appointments that other homeowners and customers managed to schedule in advance. If you try to schedule an appointment after August and into September, you may find that you have a longer wait ahead of you.
It Is Not Just Your A/C That Is Checked and Maintained
Because you have the technician right there at your home for A/C maintenance services, he/she also checks and maintains your furnace. That is excellent news for you, since you will know without a doubt that the furnace will work with the coming cold days ahead. Do not avoid scheduling maintenance for your air conditioner because you think that is all the technician is doing and you do not need that anymore. Instead, think of it as maintenance for your furnace as well, and you will be more likely to get it all completed before the first snowflake falls.
