4 Reasons You Shouldn’t Wait for A/C Servicing

Spring flew by and summer is going just as fast. With the pandemic, we’re finding that many homeowners are behind on their home maintenance that required other people to come to their homes. We completely understand as we always encourage putting health first. As you start to get back on track with your home maintenance, be sure to put A/C servicing at the top of your list! 

Angi compares keeping your A/C unit serviced to getting an oil change in your car. It’s agreed that scheduling an annual tune-up remains the best way to keep your air conditioning unit running at peak performance. There are plenty of reasons why you shouldn’t wait for A/C servicing so let’s review the top 4! 

Save time

Since regular service catches many problems before they happen, it saves you from having to take more time off for larger repairs that would have gone undetected. Not only does it save on your time, but it also cuts down on the amount of time you will have to pay the technician to be on-site. 

Save money

HomeAdvisor jokes about the two main reasons to schedule annual A/C servicing; saving money and saving money. All kidding aside, regular A/C servicing keeps your system working at its most efficient, therefore using less energy to cool your house. Doing so results in lower energy bills, which means you keep your money in your wallet where it belongs. 


Many service companies see a spike in demand at the beginning of summer and when temperatures are at their highest like in late July and August. With the impending heat coming, everyone wants A/C servicing done, and scheduling can become difficult. However, there can be a lull at the tail end of winter and beginning of spring, and the servicing company may be able to better fit you in during a time that works best for you. By planning ahead and getting your A/C servicing done between seasons, you’ll find it much more convenient to get an appointment. So go ahead and get your servicing done now and then schedule servicing in the Spring so you’re not behind again.

Preventing complete system failure

We mentioned before that scheduling regular A/C servicing will help your technician catch any potential problems early. This not only saves you money as mentioned above, but it will help identify issues before your unit completely goes out; inevitably on the hottest day of the year. Avoid these emergencies by having your A/C serviced early and regularly. Fixing a small leak is much less expensive than buying a new compressor because low refrigerant levels have burnt your current one out.
