Why You Need an AC Maintenance Checkup in the Fall

In Florida, we tend to ignore the “heating” part of our HVAC. And for good reason! We live in the sunshine state, where it’s warm all year round. After all, how many places out there can spend January sun bathing?

However, when it does get cold outside, many Floridians are left wishing they had paid more attention to their HVAC. You don’t want to wait until it’s 40 degrees outside to learn that your heating doesn’t work. Getting your HVAC maintained this fall is the best way to ensure you’re not left out in the cold this winter.

Twice a Year

When it comes to HVAC maintenance, the general rule of thumb is to have your system checked twice a year; once in the spring and once in the fall. This prepares your HVAC for the two times of year that demand the most from your system, summer and winter.

However, Floridians often ignore the fall time maintenance checkup. This is because we believe that we won’t be using our heating that much. However, like everything else in life, we can’t predict the weather. So when we’re hit with a sudden and unexpected cold front, many Floridians’ HVAC system isn’t ready. This means dealing with the cold weather until their unit is fixed.
