Why You Should Inspect Your Air Conditioner Before Summer

Summer brings with it the need for the cooling comfort provided by your HVAC system. This is especially true when temperatures spike as the season wears on and the risk of heat strokes increase without a cool haven to go to. Most people just take it for granted that they can flip a switch on their thermostat box and the air conditioner will respond perfectly. These are the people who are in for a rude shock when the outdoor temperatures climb into the 90s and they discover that their HVAC system took an unannounced early retirement.

The Importance of Early Inspections

No one wants the discomfort and inconvenience of a faulty HVAC unit. Here is why you should schedule early inspections early in the spring, even if you are relatively sure all is well:

  • Early and regular HVAC inspections will keep your unit operating at prime efficiency and help to prevent costly repair or replacement issues.
  • As the season wears on and more people begin to have trouble with their units, it can be difficult to find a repair service that isn’t completely booked. Technicians are less busy earlier in the season and are therefore able to offer quicker response times.
  • Any problems that may exist with your HVAC unit can be dealt with while the temperatures are still mild. That means when you do flip that switch, you can be sure the unit responds the way it was intended to.
