Sleep Better at Night with a Preventive Maintenance Agreement

Hot weather is right around the corner. In Arizona, 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.

The Peace of Mind of a Well-Maintained AC System

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 Phoenix metro area, cooling systems are used heavily during the summer months. Then, they go unused for several months during the short but surprisingly chilly winter. Without regular maintenance, the wear and tear can lead to a decreased lifespan of a system. As one the most important components of your Arizona home, it just doesn’t make sense to neglect the maintenance of your HVAC system

When to Schedule AC Maintenance

With an air conditioning maintenance plan, it’s your choice when you want to schedule tune-ups. With Simply the Best’s Gold Service Protection 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.

When Repairs Are Needed

During a tune-up, a problem or potential problem that requires repair may be found. Simply the Best Heating & Cooling 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 surprise of discovering a system malfunction.

The return on your investment when you purchase a preventive maintenance agreement is significant when you add up the savings. From extending the life of your system and increasing energy efficiency to greatly reducing the need for costly and time-consuming service calls. Want to learn more?
