It is recommended that you have your air conditioner professionally maintained at least once a year. Having your unit maintained helps to keep it clean, functional and helps to catch any smaller problems before they turn into larger ones. This helps your air conditioning unit last as long as it is designed to. However, when it comes to air conditioner maintenance, there are two trains of thought. Some professionals feel you should have the system maintained before the summer, while others advice to have it done at the end of summer. Here are a few of the benefits of having your air conditioning unit maintained by a professional at the end of summer.

 

Helps Prevent Cracked and Broken Belts and Hoses

One of the benefits to having your air conditioning unit maintained at the end of summer is that it helps to prevent cracked and broken belts and hoses. When an air conditioning unit is maintained, all of these parts are oiled and lubricated. When the parts are lubricated and oiled before summer, the heat can cause the excess oils and lubricants to wear off faster. Then the parts are not properly lubricated for several months, which can cause them to dry out and crack or break.

 

Removes Dirt and Debris so it Doesn't Sit on Your Unit for Several Months

Another benefit to having your air conditioner maintained at the end of the summer is that when the unit is maintained, it is cleaned. The filter, fans and coils are all cleaned so that dirt, dust and residue is removed. This helps ensure you don't have all of this debris sitting on your unit for several months, which makes it harder to remove when the time comes.

 

Ensures Your Unit is Repaired and Ready to go for Next Season

The last benefit to having your air conditioner maintained by a professional at the end of summer is that it ensures your unit is repaired and ready to go. If your air conditioner does need a repair, the maintenance and repair company has time to order the part and make the repair well before summer starts, ensuring you won't have to deal with a hot house.
