When Should I Schedule Annual Maintenance?

Apr 30, 2018

If you regularly follow the Intagas blog, you know that regular maintenance is the best way to ensure that your air conditioner or heat pump will run smoothly. However, what is the best time to have one of our technicians come out to your Brisbane area home to service your unit? Does it make sense to schedule preventive maintenance in Autumn?

Of course, it makes sense to schedule an Autumn inspection and servicing, especially if your air con or heat pump has not received a maintenance visit in several years. Most central air conditioning units should have services once a year. Depending n the type of heat pump you have, you may need services twice a year. Single cycle heat pumps that only take the heat out of your home in summer only need annual maintenance. However, if you have a dual cycle heat pump for those handfuls of chilly winter mornings, you may want to schedule servicing more frequently to ensure that the entire system is functioning properly.

When Should I Schedule Service?

Ideally, you should set a date for service before the warmest part of the year. The reason for doing so is to catch potential problems before they develop into real ones. That way you’ll have the most cost-effective cooling possible when the hottest and most humid part of the season occurs. If a problem is detected, you have time to get repair and won’t have to stress over a sudden mid-season breakdown.

Why Autumn is a Good Time to Get Preventive Maintenance

When the weather begins to cool, our technicians have fewer emergency calls. We’re not as busy, which means you will have an easier time scheduling service on a day and time that is more convenient for you. Chances are you have used your air conditioning unit heavily all summer and just like someone who has worked hard, it is probably tired. A thorough inspection and cleaning will help it work better and save you money on utility bills, especially on those Autumn days when the atmosphere heats up briefly.

Consider a Maintenance Plan

Service plans are a great way to make sure that routine maintenance is scheduling. By joining a plan, routine maintenance is included so you don’t have to worry over setting a date for inspection. By joining a plan, you get other benefits such as priority service when a breakdown occurs. Contact Intagas today for details.
