Does It Matter When You Schedule Air Conditioning Maintenance?

Posted On April 12th, 2017 by Lanz HVAC

For an air conditioner to work its best, avoid unnecessary repairs, and continue running for many years, it must have maintenance from a professional once a year. During a maintenance visit, a technician performs checks and tests on the AC; adjusts and cleans it; and takes any steps needed to keep the system functioning at its peak ability.

Most HAVC repair services advise homeowners to schedule AC maintenance during spring, and the maintenance for their heater during fall. But does it really make that much a difference when you schedule maintenance?

The answer is: yes and no. We’ll explain what we mean.

Whenever you decide to schedule your air conditioning maintenance in Champaign-Urbana, IL, make sure you have Lanz Heating & Cooling handle the job. We put professionalism first in all our work.

Yes, It Matters When You Schedule Air Conditioning Maintenance

Spring truly is an ideal time to have your AC maintenance done, for two reasons. First, it puts you in a good position with your system right before the time when you’ll need it the most, the summer. You’ll still have time to schedule any serious repairs, but you’ll also have the maintenance work done near enough to the hot season that you should have few worries about system degradation before the first blazing day arrives.

Second, spring is a less busy time for HVAC companies: they are between the emergency calls of winter and summer. You should have little problem finding a convenient date to have the maintenance work done during spring.

No, It Doesn’t Matter When You Schedule Air Conditioning Maintenance

The important thing about AC maintenance is that it gets done, period. Ultimately, if your air conditioner is overdue for maintenance, the time of year makes no difference: you should schedule it right away. Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall… it’s never the wrong time for maintenance when the system hasn’t received it in over a year. And it’s never too late to re-start with maintenance, no matter how many years have passed since it was last done.

Annual Maintenance is Mandatory

Without regular maintenance on your air conditioner, you can expect…

  • …to pay higher electrical bills.
  • …the system to need more repairs.
  • …abrupt, uncomfortable breakdowns.
  • …a shortened lifespan for the system.

So for air conditioning services in Champaign-Urbana, IL, the right time to schedule it is now. Call Lanz Heating & Cooling today and arrange for your annual visit so you’ll get the most from your AC this year.
