All throughout the year, Louisiana residents rely on their air conditioning to keep cool. Since the temperatures can reach highs of 80 degrees as early as April, a working air conditioner is crucial to home comfort. 

To that end, it’s important to schedule professional maintenance in early spring to prepare your cooling system for the hot summer days ahead. We recommend having your unit serviced by a trained professional sometime in March or April. Even if you aren’t experiencing any issues, in particular, taking a preventative approach can save you both time and money in the long run. 

Do You Need An AC Repair or Maintenance? 

Not sure whether you need regular maintenance versus air conditioner repairs? Repairs are typically called in for specific concerns with your air conditioning systems, whereas maintenance covers an overall inspection and check-up.

Your system may require notable repairs if you neglect to perform early air conditioning maintenance, forcing the cooling unit to struggle through the hot summer days without proper care. With that said, air conditioning maintenance provides better long-term performance and efficiency. 

The Advantages of Upkeep

Regular maintenance offers several benefits to homeowners, not the least of which is the opportunity to avoid untimely emergency air conditioner repairs. Let’s take a look at some other advantages here.

Furthermore, early maintenance offers a preventative approach to stave off emergency repair services. Anything that’s considered an emergency, whether it be a simple repair or a whole-system replacement, is always going to cost more.

Longer Lifespan

Scheduling maintenance in the early spring, right before you begin relying on your air conditioner the most, can help extend the life of your system. In fact, it’s been noted that consistent care and maintenance may even help your unit outlast the manufacturer’s life expectancy. Essentially, you’ll postpone the time in which your unit needs to be replaced. 

Peace of Mind

Last but not least, you’ll have great peace of mind knowing your air conditioning is working efficiently and properly and that you’re getting the most out of your unit.
