Why It’s Important to Schedule End of Summer Air Conditioning Repairs

Friday, September 19th, 2014

As we head into the cooler temperatures of the fall season, it can be very tempting to pack up your air conditioner and move on to heating – even if you have an existing problem. Ignoring or waiting to fix a problem doesn’t make it go away, and more than likely, will make it worse over time. There are other reasons to schedule end-of-summer repairs for your air conditioning too, as we’ll outline below. And remember – it’s important to hire trained professionals for all your repair needs to ensure the job is done correctly, so call the people you can trust: Rentmeister Total Home Service.

Reasons It’s Important to Schedule End-of-Summer Repairs

As we touched on above, leaving an existing problem to wait until the next cooling season is likely to make the problem worse, so it’s best to fix it now. But there are some other factors to consider when deciding whether or not to make end-of-season repairs:

Repairs Now Can Save You Money

We’ve already discussed existing problems, but what about developing problems? Unless a trained technician has inspected your system, you won’t know about them. We’re talking about things like worn fan belts and trapped debris – small things that can become big problems unless they’re attended to.

Repairs Now Can Save On Energy

A system that is run down in any way won’t function optimally, and when a system doesn’t function optimally, it needs more energy to run. Making needed repairs ensures that malfunctioning parts aren’t just fixed, but running as they should. This can save you energy, which can save you money.

Repairs Now Can Help Extend the Life of Your System

Allowing a system to run when needing repair can age the system prematurely. Making needed repairs restores that part or component to its optimal state, which can help extend the life of your system.

Repairs Now Can Maintain and/or Increase Indoor Comfort Levels

An air conditioning system that isn’t performing optimally can struggle to achieve the temperature you’ve set in your home; this can compromise indoor comfort levels. Making the needed repairs now can ensure the comfort level you need and want.

No one enjoys air conditioning repairs, but it’s always better to make repairs as soon as possible rather than ignoring them or waiting to see if things improve. If you are seeing problems with your air conditioner, call Rentmeister Total Home Service today and schedule AC repair service in Salt Lake City with one of our experts.

Plan for Air Conditioning Repair Services before the Summer

Thursday, May 1st, 2014

Here in Salt Lake City, air conditioning season can sneak up on us sometimes. It seems like just yesterday that we were dealing with your heating system, and now it’s already spring. This is the time to plan for air conditioning repair services before summer hits in force and you need your air conditioner to perform at its peak every day. An ounce of prevention beats a pound of cure as they say, and you can take steps right now to ensure that you don’t face an air conditioning crisis later.

For starters, you should always plan for a routine maintenance session every spring before the hot weather starts. This is a kind of tune up which cleans off dirt and fixes a lot of tiny little issues like loose bolts and screws. That improves overall efficiency (saving you money on your monthly bills) while lowering the chances of a bigger repair coming along later. In fact a maintenance session is designed to spot small problems that could become major repairs if left untreated. That way, you can deal with it early on, saving money and again preventing a larger crisis.

Similarly, little improvements around the house can help. Use weather stripping to cover cracks around your doors and windows, set your thermostat slightly higher than you normally would, and if you have room in your attic or crawlspace, see about adding more insulation. All of that helps your house retain cool air more readily, as well as reducing the load your air conditioner needs to bear and lowering the chances that it will break down just when you need it the most.

If you’re planning for air conditioning repair services before the summer, it pays to have a qualified company on your side. Air conditioning services in Salt Lake City can be provided by the experts at Rentmeister Total Home Services. We provide all manner of repair and maintenance sessions and our commitment to quality means that we won’t finish until you are completely satisfied with our work. Give us a call today!
