The weather is turning cooler in September, with days in the mid-70s and occasional rain. The air conditioner in your home is probably putting in less work, running with lower frequency. Soon it will shut down for a couple of months during winter, and your heater will take over to handle its share of the annual comfort workload.
But just because your air conditioning in Cliffside Park, NJ is about to go on break doesn’t mean you can ignore possible mechanical or other issues with it. If you have reason to suspect—or you know for certain—that you air conditioning system needs to have professional fixes, don’t put it off until next season. Letting your AC go without prompt repairs is never a good idea, and this is the time of year when you’re most likely to give into the temptation to shrug off any malfunction that isn’t a total breakdown!
Why Prompt Late Season Repairs Are Still Critical
“What’s the harm? I won’t need my air conditioner for months anyway.” That may be true, but there’s plenty of harm that can happen, especially if unexpected heat waves strike—and you know that’s always a possibility if you’ve lived in New Jersey for a couple of years or more. Here are some reasons to keep up with professional repair service, even with fall cooling closing in.
ONE: Stop Emergency Breakdowns
What happens when a hot day strikes and you need to have the air conditioner working long hours once again? It might be unpleasant if the AC has a fault that hasn’t been fixed. There’s a much higher likelihood the whole air conditioner could break down because of it. It may just lose some cooling capacity—but that’s not good news either! In a heat wave, HVAC technicians will be busy with repair calls. Although our techs will get to you as soon as possible, it’s much better to avoid an emergency call in the first place by having the trouble fixed early.
TWO: Prevent Higher Repair Costs
With any mechanical device, a single malfunction will start to cause chain reactions in other parts and components, leading to multiple faults. The first malfunction will also start to worsen the longer it’s left without attention. When you procrastinate with AC repairs, you’re raising the cost of the eventual repairs (and probably repairs) you’ll need to make.
THREE: Avoid Energy Waste
Almost any type of air conditioning malfunction will cause the AC to work harder to produce the temperature results you want. More strain on the motors, an evaporator coil that can’t absorb enough heat, a compressor drawing more power to start up, etc. You’ll see this reflected on your utility bills. Even this late in the season, you don’t want to spend more than necessary to cool down your house.
FOUR: Extend Equipment Life
Extra strain on an air conditioner will contribute to shortening the life of the system. You may end up needing to replace the compressor and probably the entire AC earlier than you should if you let repair issues go without attention.
