There’s a lot to learn after buying your first home, and it can be hard to stay on top of the seemingly endless maintenance tasks. However, when it comes to your cooling system, there’s one AC tip that will help ensure your system operates safely, efficiently and reliably all summer—schedule annual maintenance.
Why Annual Maintenance is So Important
Air conditioners are complex machines and need regular upkeep to perform at their highest capacity. Preventative maintenance will help improve home comfort, increase reliability and can even help cut down on monthly energy bills.
During an annual maintenance call, a certified technician will perform a safety inspection, check refrigerant levels and diagnose any small problems before they turn into an expensive repair bill. This is also the perfect time to ask a cooling technician any questions you have about the system in your new home. A technician can provide recommendations on the best air filter to use, information about thermostat settings or additional home comfort systems that can be installed.
If you’re a new homeowner and feel overwhelmed by all the mechanical systems in your home, remember that the best AC tip is to book a preventative maintenance call before the summer heat arrives.
