Are Late Season AC Repairs Worth It?

Monday, November 5th, 2018

old-acOne 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. Which 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 in Durham, NC. We’re here to tell you that it’s in your best interest to go ahead and have them taken care of now, though.
