When Should I Schedule Maintenance for My Air Conditioning System?

Summers can grow quite hot in Evanston: try to imagine making it through a week or even a few days in July without an AC that will always come on when its needed—and stay on as long as it’s needed. The best way to have this assurance of reliability and performance is to schedule maintenance for the system from a professional HVAC technician. You’ll receive a thorough check-up and inspection, plus any necessary adjustments, that will see that your air conditioner will remain energy-efficient and with little chance of encountering repair needs through the year.

To arrange for regular maintenance from some of the best AC technicians in Evanston, IL and the Chicagoland area, call up Malek Heating & Cooling today.

If you’re wondering when is the best time to schedule maintenance, we have three bits of advice:

#1. During the spring

It’s best to have an air conditioner inspected and tuned up in the period right before its main workload starts and when you are less likely to need the AC at a moment’s notice. You will have an easy time arranging for maintenance in the spring because HVAC technicians have less busy schedules.

#2. During every spring

It’s important to remember that spring maintenance isn’t something you need to schedule “every couple of springs.” An air conditioner needs to have maintenance done each year in order to prevent it from deteriorating due to dirt, stress, aging, etc. A year is also more than enough time for a repair problem to start up, and maintenance will catch this before it can turn into a threat to the AC.

#3. During every spring without fail

If it sounds like we are trying to hammer home this “every spring” idea, it’s because we are. If you remain diligent with air conditioning maintenance and have it done each spring without missing a year, you will avoid a huge number of unnecessary repairs, retain the system’s energy efficiency, and receive the most service years possible from the unit. Annual maintenance will see that you receive the best return on your investment in your air conditioning system.

Malek Heating & Cooling offers a Residential Maintenance Agreement that will see to your air conditioner (and heater) each year. In addition to the general benefits of maintenance, you will also receive discounts, priority service, and reminders when it’s time to schedule service. Call us today to learn more.
