You may not be thinking about air conditioning service while there is still snow on the ground, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be the perfect time to schedule it. If you would like peace of mind that your air conditioner will respond when you turn it on in a few weeks and would also like to know that the first power bill after beginning to use it will be as low as possible, it makes sense to have the system checked out and serviced before it gets hot out. You might not need the HVAC company to come out immediately, but it doesn’t hurt to get on their schedule for a spring service visit.
Another perfect time to schedule air conditioning service is as soon as possible if it has been longer than a year since it was done. The air conditioner could be harbouring tons of contaminants that need to be cleaned out, so they are not circulated through your home once you turn it on again. In addition, the longer you wait, the more chance the equipment could be labouring, resulting in the necessity for repairs or the potential for premature failure.
One last piece of advice is to consider air conditioner service for a home you are looking at purchasing. This visit is not to clean or maintain the system, but to inspect it for any issues. It is best to learn of problems before you close, so you can renegotiate with the seller or walk away in favour of a home without HVAC issues if needed.
