When you reach the end of your cooling season and your residential A/C system breaks down, you might be inclined to just leave it because you do not need it anymore this year. However, you should seriously consider repairing your air conditioning system now. Here are some reasons why this is a smart move.
You Will Forget That It Is Broken by Next Summer
When something is out of use and out of sight, it is out of mind. You could go all winter and all spring, then come to the first hot day of next year before you remember that you left your residential A/C system repair undone. The first time you try to flip on the air conditioning, you will remember that it is broken, and then you have to wait to make an appointment and have it fixed. Do not delay next summer's comfort by not repairing your cooling appliance now.
You Could Lose Your Job/Income by Next Year
A lot of things can happen in six to eight months, including losing your job and your income. If that happens, you would not have the money to fix the air conditioner next year, and you would have to muddle through the heat until your income flow resumes. If you repair the air conditioner now, and you lose your job and income later, the A/C repair is one less thing you will have to worry about then.
The HVAC Technician Is Coming to Do Annual Maintenance on Your Furnace Anyway
If you are quite regular with your annual heating maintenance appointments, then the HVAC technician is going to be at your home anyway. Just have him/her look at the A/C and let you know what it will cost to fix this appliance. If you can swing it, then you can have it fixed while the technician is there and skip paying an extra service call fee.
Winter Has Some Downtime for Repair Technicians
Repair technicians will have busy periods where they are fixing furnaces this fall, but they will also have slow periods where nothing is happening. This is the ideal time to fix your A/C because the appointment books of these technicians have room for these jobs. They can schedule your appointment for any time that is convenient and conducive to your schedule, rather than having to wait for a time and opening in a technician's busier schedule.
