Hot weather is right around the corner. In California, you just can’t take chances with an air conditioning system that isn’t properly maintained. A system breakdown can quickly lead to soaring interior temperatures and unexpected repair costs. As the old adage goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” This certainly applies to cooling systems, particularly when temperatures begin climbing into the triple digits.
A Maintained HVAC System Gives You Peace of Mind
Air conditioning systems require regular maintenance to run efficiently and effectively. A twice-yearly tune-up can save you money by greatly reducing the risk of costly breakdowns. It can also reduce your monthly utility bill. In the Sacramento area, cooling systems are used heavily during the summer months. Then, they go unused for several months during our brief, but surprisingly chilly winter. Without regular maintenance, the wear and tear can lead to a decreased lifespan of the system. As one the most relied-upon components of your California home, it just doesn’t make sense to neglect Sacramento air conditioner maintenance.
Can I Schedule Maintenance Service Easily?
With an air conditioning maintenance plan, it’s your choice when you want to schedule tune-ups. With Clarke & Rush’s Energy Savings Plan, you even get preferred scheduling for your convenience. Ideally, HVAC systems units should be tuned up before the hot summer months begin and before you switch over to indoor heat in the winter. This will ensure that your system is functioning properly and will eliminate any uncomfortable surprises when it’s time to heat or cool your home.
During your tune-up, it’s also a good time to ask your technician any questions you have regarding your system. You can also get some cost-savings tips and ideas for maximizing energy efficiency. A few simple strategies can save you substantially! For example, sealing exterior gaps and spaces around your windows and doors can prevent cooling energy from escaping outdoors.
What Happens if Repairs Are Needed?
During a tune-up, a problem or potential problem that requires repair may be found. Clarke & Rush’s HVAC technicians also keep their trucks well-stocked with heating and air conditioning system parts. In most cases, repairs can be made during the same visit. This eliminates the hassles of requiring multiple service calls, and most importantly, the unpleasant surprise of discovering a system malfunction.

How Important is Regular Maintenance of my AC System?
As of 2016, it’s estimated that over 60% of homes in the California run their air conditioning all year long, to combat the sticky, humid heat and sweltering sun glare. When temperatures are climbing past 100 degrees on a fairly regular basis, the last thing you need is an inefficient air conditioning system. Here’s what AC and heating maintenance can do for you.
What are Some Advantages of Scheduled Air Conditioner Maintenance
Obviously the need to stay comfortable in extreme temperatures is important. An inefficient system is, at its most basic level, simply not doing its job. Even slight discomfort at home can rob you of the relaxation you need after a hard day’s work. And if your health is already an issue, AC and heating repair can quite literally be a life-saver.
Can AC Maintenance Save You Money?
But inefficient HVAC systems can also harm the health of your wallet. The more energy it takes to run the systems, the more you’ll pay each month. Regular maintenance of your heating and AC can keep it running at peak efficiency, and save you hundreds of dollars in the extreme months.
Can Air Conditioner Maintenance Prevent Future Problems?
Regular maintenance can also help stave off major problems, which are always more expensive and time-consuming. Having a scheduled, routine visit from your heating and air conditioning services professional can keep your system up to date, quickly take care of the usual tasks (filters or drainage), and spot small problems before they turn into major headaches.
