Though there may still be a chill in the air, March is a good time to schedule your AC unit maintenance! Spring is the best time to plan for AC repairs for many reasons. Repairing your unit in spring means you’re ready for whatever summer has in store before it hits. Take a look at the top reasons why now is the best time to call Wyckoff and have your AC unit checked for repairs

Make Sure Your Unit Is Ready for First Use

Nothing is worse than going to turn your AC on when it’s the first hot and humid day of summer, only to have it blow out lukewarm air. Your air conditioner has likely been shut off for months, sitting dormant through the cold temperatures of fall and winter. This lack of use can cause your AC system to develop issues. 

A majority of AC unit breakdowns happen on the first use of the summer season, but with the proper maintenance and repairs done beforehand, this can easily be prevented. 

Beat the Summer Rush

As you can imagine, loads of homeowners wait until summer to have their AC units repaired or replaced. This makes getting an appointment for repair more difficult, and if you do need a new unit, prices may be higher due to the increase in demand. 

So, in order to beat long wait times for installation and repairs, and to save money, it’s a great idea to get a head start on your AC repairs. 

Plenty of Time to Plan for a Replacement If Needed

If you do schedule a repair in the spring and find out that your unit needs to be replaced, you have plenty of time to research and shop around for a new unit. Summer is a busy time in the HVAC market and homeowners may end up feeling rushed into finding a replacement as quickly as possible. 

With time to not only pick out the best AC unit for your home but also time to have it installed by the professionals at Wyckoff, you’ll be relaxing in a perfectly chilled home as soon as the temperature rises. 

Catch Issues Early to Avoid Emergencies

During a typical maintenance appointment, a Wyckoff technician will take an in-depth look at your cooling system to spot any issues. They’ll check refrigerant levels, the condition of the lubricant, air filters, and internal fans. By looking inside your air conditioner, your technician can also see if any winter-related issues have cropped up that may cause damage or require repair in the future. 

The earlier in the season you’re able to schedule maintenance, the better it will be for your AC unit. Prolonging repairs can lead to larger issues and can leave you without AC when you need it most.

Increase the Longevity of Your AC Unit

Replacing your unit isn’t cheap, so you want to get the most out of your investment. Without maintenance and routine care, the odds of a breakdown are much higher. Scheduling your annual service each year will help extend the life of your AC unit and ensure that you stay cool and comfortable for as long as possible.
