When to Schedule Heating and Air Conditioning Maintenance Visits

Your system requires regular care and maintenance to perform properly. Your heating and cooling system needs to be serviced at least once a year to maintain most manufacturers’ warranties. Del-Air Heating and Air Conditioning recommends two services a year to keep your AC system in peak performance and to save on your energy bill. Taking Florida weather into account, we have handy recommendations for when to best schedule all of your maintenance visits.

Maintenance for Air Conditioners

Air conditioning problems seem to happen at the most inconvenient times. That’s why it’s important to keep up with AC maintenance. In Florida, the best time to schedule an annual maintenance visit for your air conditioner is during the spring before the cooling season begins and in the fall before winter.

It’s best to have the system serviced before you need it the most. Annual maintenance will ensure it’s in prime condition when the temperatures begin to rise again. By April, the average high is already 82 for this part of Florida, so you should make sure you’re prepared to handle the heat.

Maintenance for Heating Systems

You should have your heater serviced during the fall before you have to turn your system on to deal with cool weather. The average low in Sanford, Florida dips from 72 in September to 65 in October. This is a good time to schedule heating maintenance for your system. Make sure you schedule heating maintenance before November when the average temperature is in the 50s. Proactive maintenance for your heater will ensure that you can keep your home comfortable while maintaining efficiency.

Maintenance for Heat Pumps

Heat pumps operate differently than air conditioners and furnaces. They offer both heating and cooling for your home. If you use your heat pump year round, you should schedule maintenance visits once every six months.

If you haven’t scheduled routine maintenance in the last 12 months, make an appointment with a service technician as soon as possible. Give Del-Air Heating and Air Conditioning a call today at (888) 831-2665.
