There’s No “End Date” for AC Maintenance—You Still Need It!

ac-unit

Regular air conditioning maintenance from HVAC professionals is not a “bonus” for a cooling system. It’s a necessity, the same way regular oil changes and maintenance for vehicles is. We encourage our customers to arrange for AC maintenance in Van Nuys, CA during the spring because it’s a great time to have it done: it prepares the system right before it will need to do the most work and have the system ready before the first major summer heat waves hit.

But if you didn’t have maintenance done in spring, that doesn’t mean the time ran out, or the deadline is past. There isn’t an end date for maintenance where it becomes useless to schedule—it’s an annual necessity, even if it gets done late.

Missing Maintenance During the Year Is Bad for the AC

We want to encourage you not to feel like you missed an opportunity if you didn’t schedule maintenance in spring. Yes, spring is the best time for it, and we urge you to have it done in spring in the future, but don’t pass it up because it’s August. Southern California weather requires air conditioners run deep into fall and even winter, so your AC still has quite a bit of work to go this year, and maintenance can help it.

This is about more than getting the most out of the rest of the year, however. It’s about the long-term health of the air conditioner. Skipping maintenance takes a toll on the AC:

  • It can shorten its lifespan, resulting in an expensive replacement years too early.
  • It contributes to a decline in system efficiency, raising your cooling costs by 5% or more per year.
  • It increases the risk of a malfunction and even a complete system breakdown.
  • It may void the equipment warranty.

As you can see, there is a lot riding on keeping current with maintenance, and you haven’t missed the “deadline” as long as you have maintenance done each year—and there’s no reason to delay.
