Why You Shouldn’t Wait To Take Care Of Your AC Repairs
While Southern California isn’t exactly known for frigid temperatures, it still gets cold enough during winter that you won’t need to run your AC. However, it’s still too warm during autumn to warrant running your heat.
While it might make sense to wait on having minor repairs done until you need to use your AC again, leaving small problems to fester over winter can them to grow into something more serious—and more expensive to fix!—down the road. Check out these four reasons it is more beneficial to service your HVAC system during the off-season!
Our technicians are typically booked throughout the summer and winter seasons, as many heating and cooling issues are only addressed when they immediately compromise the user’s comfort. Spring and fall are a bit quieter because most people probably aren’t running their furnace or AC for a prolonged period of time. If you know that a component of your HVAC is damaged, we recommend that you address it during the off-season, as there is a greater chance we’ll be able to conduct repairs at the most convenient time for you.
If your home has a heat pump you’re able to enjoy the benefits of a heating and cooling system in one unit. Because all your home comfort needs are met by a single system, it’s important that you take care of minor repairs as soon as possible to avoid a major breakdown or early replacement costs.
If you notice any of these signs, call for repair ASAP!
- Rust and corrosion on your unit.
- Unusual noises coming from your system.
- You notice a spike in your energy bill.
- Uneven distribution of conditioned air throughout your home.
- Extremely high humidity levels.
Because technicians aren’t as in-demand during fall as they are during peak heating and cooling seasons, you may be able to save on your scheduled repair or maintenance. Additionally, HVAC technology is constantly evolving, meaning that if you do need a replacement, you may be able to score a deal during the fall as contractors are eager to sell slightly older models in order to make room for brand new ones.
Losing heat smack in the middle of winter will send almost anyone into a panic. Make sure to schedule routine maintenance during the off-season, so that you can take time to weigh your options if you do discover that your system needs to be repaired or replaced. If you are rushed, you may be forced to schedule an appointment with a company that may not necessarily be your first choice or to choose a new system that does not best suit your needs.
