November 28, 2016 Energy Air Share this post Annual maintenance service for your air conditioner is recommended by all manufacturers as one of the best ways to save money on AC-related repairs, cut cooling costs, and ultimately get the most out of your home comfort system. With the workout our AC’s get during the hot Florida summer, fall is an optimal time to schedule a service call. Read on to find out why fall is the perfect time to schedule an AC tuneup. 1. It’s the off-season for technicians. Thanks to cooler temperatures, fall is considered an off-season for Florida HVAC companies. When technicians are busy responding to emergency calls during the hot summer months, it can be really difficult to get an appointment. Take advantage of the off-season and schedule your maintenance appointment now. Not only will you be able to get an appointment right away, but maintenance now will help you avoid AC-related issues in the spring and summer. 2. Summer takes a toll on air conditioners. Summer takes a toll on your air conditioner’s motor (and all the moving parts that make it function efficiently). Our air conditioners collect more dust, pollen and the like over the summer since they are being used everyday. You can prevent a lot of the damage done to your AC by making sure to take extra precautions with at-home maintenence. This checklist will save you money on your next service call and will also maximize the efficiency and longevity of your HVAC system. Change the air filter Clean the outdoor condenser coils Clean out the condensate drain Clear 2 feet of space around the outdoor unit Check your refrigerant for a possible leak Replace the humidifier filter and make sure the water is turned on Make sure your outdoor unit is leveled 3. Best prices. Since fall is the off-season for AC companies, service technicians have a lower demand. The result? Specials and extra savings for you. Even if your system isn’t quite due for a maintenance appointment, scheduling one now can help you put off replacing your system for another season and potentially save you a few thousand dollars.
