Florida definitely lives up to its reputation as the sunshine state. Residents in North Central Florida don’t just have a few months of high temperatures. From March to November, we can feel record-breaking temperatures and rely on air conditioning. Before an impending heat wave, it’s best to be proactive about your HVAC’s health.
Preventative Maintenance Saves You From A Hot Summer
Your unit will thank you for taking proactive steps to maintain it, especially when it’s working overtime to keep you cool. By scheduling preventative maintenance, you are better equipped to stay comfortable even when the temperature outside hits triple digits.
Why You Should Service Your Unit
Being proactive instead of reactive will save you from breaking a sweat due to a sick unit. We’ve listed six reasons why you should schedule AC service before the 100-degree heat rolls in.
Pinpoint Internal Issues in Your HVAC System
One of the biggest reasons to have your unit serviced is to have peace of mind about the inner workings of your HVAC system. A trained HVAC technician will be able to locate potential problems in your unit and ductwork that may go unnoticed by the average homeowner. These small problems could go unnoticed until they’re suddenly not, and then you’ve got a bigger problem on your hands.
A major part of our service process is to check refrigerant levels. If you are having refrigerant problems, that could lead to costly repairs or cause your AC unit to freeze up (and not keep you cool!) We take care of troubleshooting various parts of your unit.

Make Necessary Repairs and Upgrades Before It’s Costly
Small problems oftentimes can be corrected easily and at less of a cost than if your unit suddenly breaks down. Tightening, adjusting, or simply cleaning parts is a lot less costly than having to completely replace a part or the entire unit depending on the circumstances.
Less Wait Time for Service
Another reason to service your unit before the hottest days arrive is to reduce your wait time. After a few days of intense heat, you could be waiting a lot longer for service due to the number of people experiencing the same HVAC woes as you. By getting ahead of the heatwave, you don’t have to wait as long for a service tech to inspect your unit.
Save Money Before The Heat Hits
Your energy bills will rise at the same rate the temperatures are rising, that’s a given. Without having one of our trained technicians inspect your unit before the sweltering heat sinks in, your unmaintained unit could be driving up your energy bills! Save yourself from spending more than you should by having your unit inspected.
Yearly Check-Ups Build Familiarity
It’s never too late to start a good habit! Having your unit serviced annually will be a proactive step in the right direction. Every time one of our technicians visits your unit, they’ll already know your habits, needs, and previous problems. This makes the service call go by a lot quicker and it’s more beneficial to both you and our team. You won’t have to worry about spending a hot summer afternoon with a broken unit.
Service as Part of Hurricane Prep
An added benefit of servicing before the hotter months is that your unit will be ready for storm season. Florida homeowners are familiar with hurricanes and the intense summer storms we experience. Servicing your unit before the peak of storm season will ensure that your unit is prepared for all kinds of weather, from hot temperatures to the threat of a power outage.
Plus, if you haven’t had your unit serviced since the last big storm, there could be underlying damage that has gone unnoticed. Be prepared for storm season before it even starts with preventative maintenance.
