Most homeowners in the Contra Costa and San Francisco area know that they should have their air conditioner maintained every year, but do you actually carry through? And how often should AC maintenance for Contra Costa homeowners occur? Many contractors recommend scheduling maintenance twice each year, but it’s a must to have your system checked out and maintained at least once every year.
At Ortiz Heating & Air Conditioning, we recommend that you have your system cleaned in addition to yearly maintenance. This will ensure that your equipment runs efficiently, and lasts for years to come.
Spring is the ideal time for maintenance
Summer is already here, but if you did not have your air conditioner serviced this spring, time to do it now. Any time of year is preferable to none; we simply recommend spring because it is a time of year that most homeowners do not need the AC and can enjoy the nice weather. Household dust, dirt, pet dander, smoke, and other debris accumulate inside your equipment. This means that your AC won’t run as efficiently, which equates to higher energy costs and a heavier load on your equipment.
Sure, having regular maintenance performed on your air conditioner costs money, but in comparison to the costs of repair or replacement you may face when you don’t have your system checked out, you still come out a winner.
