You likely don't think about your air conditioning during the winter months since it's cool enough outside to keep the temperatures within your home comfortable, or you're already using your heating system and not even thinking about making your home cool in the near future. Still, even though you're not going to use your air conditioning system until spring or summer, you should have the unit serviced.
Here are reasons why servicing your air conditioner is a great idea in the winter months. Your air conditioning installation specialist can come to your home and service your unit for you. If you don't remember who your air conditioning installation company is, look at your AC unit — there's usually a tag or sticker on the appliance somewhere listing the installation date and who did the work.
You can get your air conditioning repairs done before you need your AC working
Did you end last season with your air conditioner needing a little bit of work so you decided you'd wait until next season to fix things? If you have these repairs done now, your air conditioning unit can be made ready for use come spring or summer. Some parts take time to get in, and sometimes the time to fix an AC unit can set you back, so it's wise to have your air conditioning unit serviced when you don't need it so it's ready when you do.
The same technique can be used on your heating unit. Have your heating unit serviced in the summer months so any needed repairs can be finished before you need the unit again.
You get possibly get a discount on the servicing you have done
When you have your air conditioner looked at during the off-season, you can potentially get a discount on your services because your air conditioning installation company may be looking for active work. Supply and demand work in the service sector, too: your business during a slow time of year can mean savings for you. As a bonus, if you have your air conditioning servicing done during a slower season, the work may get completed sooner as well so that your air conditioner is ready to go as soon as those warmer temperatures begin.
When you have an air conditioning unit that hasn't been serviced in a while, don't wait until summer to have this work done. Have your AC unit looked at now to save you time, money, and future repairs.
