The short answer to this is, “no!” Well, okay, maybe it’s not that simple. If your air conditioner has completely broken down to the point that it’s beyond repair, then it is too late for maintenance. However, you can avoid this with consistent tune-ups, no matter the time of the year.
Air conditioning maintenance is something we typically recommend our customers have done in the early spring, given how consistently warm our weather is and how much work our cooling systems go through. Having maintenance done this early gives your air conditioner the best chance of making it through the entire summer season without the need for sudden repairs. Plus, it alerts us to small repair needs so you can get them on your schedule right away.
But as we said, consistency is what’s important. As long as you’re having AC maintenance done at least once a year (or twice a year if you have a year-round heat pump system). Read on as we illustrate why this is so important.
