AC Maintenance

Let our experts give your unit a full inspection this year!

San Antonio AC Maintenance

It’s common knowledge that getting the oil changed in your car is key to getting the most out of your engine and making sure you get as many miles out of your vehicle as possible. This requirement for maintenance is necessary for almost any mechanical thing with moving parts, from cars to grandfather clocks.

It’s often overlooked, but the HVAC systems in our homes are no different in terms of their maintenance requirements.

Here at Bravo Heating and Air Conditioning, it’s our job to not overlook the maintenance requirements of your HVAC system — and we want to do our part in making sure that our customers have all the information necessary so that they understand the benefits and importance of staying on top of their regular air conditioner maintenance.

How Often/When Should My AC Unit Be Serviced? 

Now that it’s been established that AC maintenance is an important part of your system’s health, it’s important to know how often it should be done as well as the best time to do it.

The specialists here at Bravo recommend that your AC system should be maintained by a qualified professional at least once per year. Doing so will ensure that no major issues are being overlooked with the system and that it will be ready for the full workload of the year.

As to when to schedule your maintenance, spring is by far the ideal time to schedule your annual AC tuneup. Spring represents a good transition point where it’s not so hot that an AC system is necessary — and at the same time technicians aren’t so busy, so scheduling an appointment is easier.

Benefits Of Regular AC Maintenance

The benefits of being diligent about AC maintenance are similar to the benefits gained when you stay on top of your car’s oil changes. Having professional eyes regularly examine your system can go a long way in ensuring that problems are avoided down the road. Some of the most obvious benefits associated with regular AC maintenance are listed below.

Detection Of Unseen Damage

One of the largest benefits of regular maintenance is the possible detection of small, unseen issues, that if left unchecked, could blossom into much more significant issues. Catching these problems before they get bad can save you thousands in repair and replacement costs down the road.

Assurance That Your System Is Running Optimally

Over the years, it can be difficult to be sure if your HVAC system is running as well as it should be. Regular maintenance is one of the best ways to avoid this uneasiness and be sure that your system is running at peak efficiency year-round.

More Consistent Energy Bills

Consistent performance means consistency in utility bills. Making sure your system gets its annual tune-up is a great way to rule out your HVAC system if you are ever trying to find out the cause of fluctuating bills.
