Scheduling maintenance on your AC system is an industry wide practice that is encouraged every single year. Here in San Antonio, we know just how important our AC’s health is – particularly in midsummer. That’s why we want to make sure our cooling systems are in prime condition for those rising temperatures with healthy AC practices.
Our team at Climate Magic offers expert maintenance services to keep your system in prime condition. If you’ve ever wondered when you should be having preventative air conditioner maintenance done on your AC, we’ve got the answers for you!
Spring Is The Best Time For AC Tune-Ups
Climate Magic encourages you to schedule an AC tune-up appointment once a year, but there are some times of the year that are better than others. You may think that AC tune-ups only come up in the summer, but it’s actually more productive to complete maintenance in the spring for several reasons.
- Preparation – Your AC is in highest demand during the summer months when you need to fight off the heat. That means you want to make sure it is ready to shield your home long before the heat rises. This makes spring the perfect time to get ready for the looming heat.
- Availability – You local HVAC technicians are far more busy during the summer attending to emergency AC repairs. You will have better luck receiving prompt service if you schedule your maintenance ahead of time when the schedule is not so crowded.
- Time – If your AC system does require repairs – or even replacement – you don’t want to find yourself out of cool air in the middle of summer. Assessing these needs ahead of time allows your technician time to make repairs, order parts or install a new unit before you need that cool air.
If you don’t have time or forget to schedule your maintenance in the spring, it is still better to get maintenance done another time during the year rather than not at all. Our technicians are available all year long to perform expert evaluations, repairs and adjustments to help your AC become more efficient.
Why Do Seasons Affect Your AC?
Our HVAC systems can seem like invincible machines, but even they struggle to fight the extreme temperature changes of the seasons. When we retreat into our homes to escape the searing heat, we have to remember that even machines are affected by that Texas sun.
Your AC unit operates by absorbing the heat in your air to send cool air back to your home. The heat is blown and moved by fans until it can be pushed out of the unit. When the outside temperature is so high, the machine can experience difficulties efficiently pushing that hot air to the outdoors.
Plus, we know how humid San Antonio can get. Our air conditioners are responsible for drawing out moisture from our air as well. The high levels of humidity added to extreme heat just adds to the strain on your AC as it tries to cool your air. This may cause your system to take longer or use more energy to meet your cooling demands.
