Are Late Season AC Repairs Worth It?


One look at the weather forecast will tell you that the winter season is moving in fast. In fact, it is likely that you won’t need to use your air conditioner even once more this year. This is perfect because your AC wasn’t exactly working perfectly the last time that you did need to use it.  So you can just wait until next year to have it fixed, right? Well, sure you can.

And, technically, you could probably make it around the block a few times without any tires on your rims. That doesn’t mean that you’d try to do so, though. So why let your AC sit in a state of disrepair all winter?

We get it. Many homeowners would choose to ride out the rest of the summer with an AC on the edge rather than schedule late-season AC repairs. Even more, would skip over out-of-season air conditioning repair. We’re here to tell you that it’s in your best interest to go ahead and have them taken care of now, though.

You’ll Save Yourself Money

How does scheduling repair service save me money? The damage is done—I’m paying for repairs! 

Well, that’s true. But the repairs you need are only going to get worse the more you force your system to run before having them completed, right? And yes, you’re done using the AC for the year. But what about when temperatures rise a bit sooner than expected next year? And you say, well, the AC still works, I’ll just use it as is until I can get it repaired?

That’s when the trouble starts.

Not only is your system likely to incur further damages, making repairs more costly, but you’re also costing yourself money just by running that system. How? By using an inefficient system! Even if you’re not using it for all that long, you are not going to get the most efficient performance that your AC has to offer when its condition is compromised. To save a few bucks and part with a few to have your AC repaired ASAP.

It’s Just More Convenient

Yes, your air conditioner and its problems will still be there when temperatures rise once more. So why the emergency? Well, it’s not an emergency, but the fact is that you’ll be trying to schedule air conditioning repairs just when AC contractors’ services are in the highest demand. That may lead to a waiting period for service that is longer than you’d like.

Hot weather can hit hard and fast around here, so any wait time can feel like an eternity when things get turned up to 11. By scheduling your AC repairs when you don’t actually need the AC, you ensure that your comfort won’t be compromised during the repairs themselves. Plus, you probably won’t run into trouble getting on the schedule at the end of the season. You’ve got nothing to lose, except a headache come next summer season.
