When was the last time you had your air conditioner serviced? If you’re like most people, you ignore your air conditioner during the winter months and only remember it when summer rolls around again. And even when it is summer, you may not remember to get your air conditioner serviced regularly. You may not think about it at all unless it stops working or stars malfunctioning in some way.
However, it’s important to keep tabs on your air conditioner to make sure that it continues to work smoothly and doesn’t end up needing repair earlier than usual.
Should You Get a Servicing Contract for Your AC?
Most air conditioning contractors will give you a contract for servicing your air conditioner four times a year. This might be the most convenient thing for most people because your contractor will remember to contact you every three months or so and remind you that they need to come by for servicing. So you won’t need to remember it yourself.
Of course, you can also opt to have your air conditioner serviced less regularly, possibly twice a year. This might be a better option if you don’t use it that often. But in either case, servicing is still important and can lengthen the life of your air conditioner.
Maintaining the Health of Your Air Conditioner
Servicing is a little bit like going to your doctor for regular checkups to make sure that you’re in good health. Your doctor will check various things and make sure that you are healthy for your age. S/he may recommend that you start taking vitamins or calcium or improve your diet in some way. And then you don’t have to worry about it for the next year.
The contractor performs a similar service for your air conditioner and makes sure that it’s in good condition for the next few months.
