Get Ready for Warm Weather: It’s Time for AC Maintenance!

It’s springtime and temperatures are beginning to warm up. Before we know it, summer will be in full swing and we will be reaching some of the hottest days of summer. Although it doesn’t get quite as hot here as it does in the southern states, we still want our homes to be comfortably cool.

If you want to prevent unexpected AC repair in Sterling, VA, this summer, then you need to schedule your AC maintenance appointment now. It’s the only way to stay ahead of AC repairs and skip out on surprise breakdowns. Keep reading to learn more about why AC maintenance is so important for your air conditioner.


One of the number one concerns that we hear from homeowners is about energy efficiency. Over time, your AC naturally takes on some wear and tear from operating around the clock to cool your home when it is hot outside. But AC maintenance appointments are an opportunity to address some of that wear and tear so you don’t face AC problems down the road.

Plus, keeping your AC in top condition helps it to operate better so that it can use less energy to produce the same results. If you skip out on AC maintenance, wear and tear continues to build, leading to more expensive energy bills. It’s not something that you might notice at first, but it’s easy for your energy bills to creep up a few dollars at a time until they are significantly more expensive. 


The average air conditioner will last 10-15 years. If you want your air conditioner to last longer, you need to take good care of it. One way to do that is by scheduling annual maintenance with our expert team of technicians. When you have your AC serviced annually, you’ll ensure that it’s in the best condition that it can be.

Even if you only get a few extra years out of your air conditioner, isn’t that better than replacing your AC sooner? You’re getting that much more out of your current investment and postponing a major purchase. Having AC maintenance also gives you an opportunity to monitor how well your AC is performing year after year. Our team can give you an idea of when your AC is reaching the end of its life so that you can plan ahead, save, and not be surprised by the sudden need for an AC replacement.

Peace of Mind

You can’t put a price on peace of mind. You already have dozens of tasks that you juggle every day, things that you have to remember to do or check off of your list. Sure, AC maintenance is definitely another one of those things, but when you do check it off each year, you can breathe easy knowing that your air conditioner is less likely to face unexpected repairs for the coming year. It’s another thing that you can take off your mental checklist since you won’t have to worry if your air conditioner has something wrong.
