The daytime temperatures in Hampton, South Carolina, are starting to warm up. That can only mean one thing: You’re about to turn your air conditioning system on. But before you do, it’s important to make sure it’s ready to handle the upcoming workload. Read on to learn why every homeowner should schedule AC maintenance in early spring.

Maximize Every Energy Dollar This Cooling Season

You’ll likely use your air conditioner for about six months this cooling season, depending on your comfort preferences. Operating an inefficient air conditioner for all of that time can result in hundreds or even thousands of dollars in wasted energy. The sooner you schedule AC maintenance, the more money you’ll save this cooling season.

Reduce the Risk of Experiencing a Significant AC Breakdown

An inefficient air conditioner has to work harder to cool your home to your desired temperature. This not only wastes energy but also causes parts to malfunction. When you schedule AC maintenance in the spring, a service technician will have the chance to identify and repair any small issues before they can develop into significant problems. As a result, you’ll reduce your risk of requiring a costly AC repair when the temperatures are at their highest this summer.

Avoid Longer Wait Times During the Busier Time of the Year

As the temperatures heat up, more people will either schedule AC maintenance or require repairs on their air conditioner. Avoid longer wait times by scheduling your AC maintenance service before you turn your system on.

Changing your filter is one AC maintenance task that you can complete yourself. You should leave all others to a professional service technician.
