With temperatures expected to start creeping back up into the 70s in just a few short weeks, it’s time to ensure your air conditioner is ready for the change in the weather. The best way to do this is to schedule preventive maintenance. It’s still a little early just yet, but it’s never too early for a tune-up! We typically recommend this service be done in the spring before you need your air conditioner the most.
What if you have a heat pump? The same rule applies, except you should have maintenance done on this system twice a year, since it does get year-round use. Without maintenance, you can run into any number of problems. One issue in particular that we get calls for as temperatures rise is in regards to a heat pump that won’t switch modes—that is, a heat pump system that won’t come out of heating mode and into cooling mode.
