What’s the Best Time to Get My Air Conditioner Serviced?

Proactive Homeowners Get Their A/C Serviced to Prevent Failures on the Hottest Days of Summer, But What’s the Best Time to Have Preventative Maintenance Done?

At Homesense we believe an Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure. If you came to us by our homepage, you saw that front and center.

Once someone agrees that proactivity saves headaches and money, the next question is “when do I get the preventative maintenance done?”

1) The A/C has to be running to get the best service done. What’s that mean? Well, our team wants it to be at least 60 degrees outside, and will sometimes have to turn the heat on inside so that the A/C is forced to run as if it’s higher heat outside.

2) Get the technicians utmost attention. As the temperatures start to rise, the phones start to ring more. As technician’s schedules get filled, maintenance visits won’t get the focus they might get in other times of the year.

In the Indianapolis area, all this points to springtime being the best time for A/C maintenance. If you’re interested, visit our maintenance plan page, or call our office at 317.670.0171.
