Many people get their routine air conditioning maintenance out of the way sometime in spring or early summer, which is a good way to go – if you can find an appointment time that fits in your schedule.
But in our experience, that doesn’t always happen.
Here’s what does happen: your son’s band decides to practice four days a week instead of two. Your daughter’s soccer team makes the playoffs, which means three more weeks of games four towns away. The dog eats a sock and needs an emergency operation, and your husband ends up spending all of his “free time” on planes trying to keep his clients happy (I’m sure you have your version of those scenarios…those happen to be mine). Before you know it you’re past the halfway point of summer and your cooling equipment is still running on a tune-up from 2018.
The good news is that late summer and early fall are also perfectly good times to take care of maintenance on your central air conditioning system – especially if warm days are likely to linger a bit deeper into the year (considering the heat records we seem to be breaking every day, it’s a safe bet that’s going to happen this year).
In truth, there are actually some big advantages to taking care of your cooling maintenance in the coming weeks: for one thing, if you need a surprise A/C repair, there’s plenty of time to order replacement parts – or to make a decision on a cooling system replacement. For another, you can set up appointments for your cooling and heating system maintenance at the same time so you only have to be around once for one service visit.
So what are some of the most important air conditioning maintenance jobs to handle in the weeks to come (assuming your family life allows you time to do them)? Here are five suggestions:
