The Best Way to Avoid AC Repair: AC Maintenance!


It’s already June, the first month of summer (although technically summer doesn’t start until the third week of June), and it’s time to get ready for the coming heat. 

“I’m ready,” you might think. “I’ve got a trusty air conditioning system to handle the sweltering months.”

But what if your air conditioning system isn’t as trusty as you think it is? That AC did a lot of work last year through the summer, and now it needs to do all that work again. What happens if your air conditioning system breaks down on one of the hottest days of the year? You’ll have to call us for repairs, and although we’re happy to help, we know you’d much rather not have to go through the inconvenience or the discomfort of waiting in a boiling house for help.

The best approach to air conditioning repair in Yakima, WA is to avoid it altogether. There’s one simple step you can take that will make repairs a rarity and ensure your air conditioner functions at its best through the summer: professional preventive maintenance.

The Basics of Air Conditioning Maintenance

AC maintenance is a proactive approach to handling your cooling system. Each spring, you arrange for HVAC professionals to come to your home and give the AC a thorough inspection and tune-up. This might seem like luxury, but it’s one of the smartest investments you can make in your home comfort. Annual maintenance will save you money and stress, specifically when it comes to repairs.

Here’s a fact that will put this in perspective: the majority of repairs a cooling system may need during its service life are due to lack of maintenance. That means that with maintenance, you can immediately erase more than 50% of AC repairs from your future. And since most repairs occur in the last years of the system, the chance you’ll run into a problem this summer is low. Not only will you not have to pay for repairs, you won’t have your cooling interrupted or need to deal with the stress of worrying that you may end up with dead AC when you need it the most.

Long-Term Benefits

AC maintenance does much more than help you avoid repairs. It offers long-term benefits that make it an even better investment:

  • It increases the service life of the air conditioner. Without maintenance, your AC may fail after only 8 years rather than making it to 15.
  • It helps the AC retain its energy efficiency so that it doesn’t drain more power and unnecessarily raise your utility bills.
  • It keeps the manufacturer’s warranty valid so you’ll have this important consumer protection covering repairs.
