If retailers can begin decorating for Christmas in October, we definitely do not think that March is too early to begin discussing air conditioner inspections. Scheduling an a/c inspection is painless, and the inspection itself will only take 45 minutes to an hour. So, what are you waiting for?
Scheduling earlier rather than later, gives you a better chance of choosing a convenient time for you. Remember, you don’t need to have your inspection completed prior to turning on the a/c for the season, but it is always better to fix any potential issues before you really need that cool air.
Proper maintenance is proven to extend the life of the air conditioning unit. Your air conditioner should be able to serve you and your family for around 15-20 years, depending on the model and how often it is run. Furthermore, when you have your air conditioner inspected every year, small problems can be fixed before they become big, expensive problems.
While an air conditioner inspection cannot change the SEER rating of an a/c unit (meaning it can’t make a less efficiently rated a/c suddenly become much more energy efficient), it can help to ensure that your unit is running as efficiently as possible.
We recommend yearly air conditioner inspections as well as yearly furnace inspections for each unit in your home. Please be aware that air conditioner inspections cannot be performed when the temperature drops below 65 degrees Fahrenheit and while it is raining. If, after scheduling your inspection with Flame, the weather forecast calls for one of these two things, you will be contacted to re-schedule.
