Maintenance or Repairs: Which Should You Choose Now?

Ideally, we’d say that everyone should purchase repairs when they’re needed, and maintenance every single year in the springtime. But unfortunately, life doesn’t always go exactly as planned and many customers need to choose between one or the other. Maybe customers also need a bit of an introduction on what each service is and what the main differences are between them.

Maintenance is a yearly tune-up that helps to keep your air conditioner efficient and effective year after year.

Air conditioning repair is a service we provide when there’s something wrong with your AC technology and it needs to be fixed.

Now that we’ve gotten this bit of information out, we can get into the more comprehensive part of this blog. Which service, if you had to choose one, would give you the most benefits? And which service should you choose now and why?

Choosing Repairs Should Always Come First

If you’re choosing between getting a repair for your broken air conditioner, and scheduling a maintenance visit, then it’s very likely something is wrong that needs to be fixed. This is usually going to be the first step you need to take, and it’s where repairs really shine.

We understand that maintenance is a valuable thing to invest in as well, but your air conditioner needs to work properly and efficiently before maintenance can be as valuable as you want it to be.

So, in the grand scheme of things, repairs should be the first thing you invest in when you know something is wrong. But what if you’re unsure about the state of your system, or what if the problem is due to neglect or missed maintenance? That’s where things get complicated.

Maintenance Is a Good Preliminary Option

When you invest in maintenance for your air conditioner, you get a full system inspection as well as some diligent cleaning and adjustments. This can be the time when your trustworthy HVAC technician spots a problem that’s been causing issues, which will likely require a separate repair appointment.

As frustrating as this situation might seem, it’s actually a really good thing. This is what maintenance is for. Now that your system has been maintained and a problem has been spotted, you can invest in the repairs afterward so that your air conditioner starts with a clean slate this summer.

Maintenance Can Also Wait

Maintenance is normally performed during the spring, but it doesn’t have to be. The important thing is that you have maintenance performed on your system regularly, or yearly in the case of a central air conditioner. This can be in the spring, summer, fall, or even winter–but it’s a requirement if you want to enjoy superior efficiency and comfort.

So, if you’re stuck with a Las Vegas air conditioning repair and think that you can’t also get maintenance this year, check back in a few months later to see if your budget can handle it. If it can, then you’re good to go.

When your HVAC system or plumbing isn’t looking so hot, it’s time to get Johnny On the Spot. Schedule an appointment today.
