Can You Have Your AC Repaired in the Winter?

Yes, absolutely! But this can be a bit more complicated, since your air conditioner is most likely encased by either a tarp or a thick layer of snow from one of our recent snowstorms. So, why exactly is this a point of our blog?

Well, your air conditioner is going to be extremely relevant in only a few months. And, if you’re someone who skipped out on maintenance last year, or if you started hearing problems toward the end of the cooling season, then AC might still be on your mind even if temperatures are cold out now. Some folks have new heating systems that don’t need as much attention as the air conditioner might, so we should focus on where help is needed the most!

So, let’s talk about HVAC repair in Gastonia, NC–more importantly, why AC repairs can be very helpful during the winter.

Predicting the Seasons

One of the hardest and best things about where we live is the fact that we see every season of the year–while also experiencing the problems of each season. Winters can be chilly, summers are brutally hot, and the intervening seasons can be unpredictable. This is why HVAC repairs can be so tricky, since you’re trying to predict when your home will be uncomfortable, and that’s very hard to do.

However, one thing is for certain, summer is going to be hot and your home is going to require air conditioning. So, even though temperatures are cold out now, they will be hot in the future and sometimes preparing for the future is easier than preparing for things right now.

Here’s a tip: try to work towards future seasons so you’re not as surprised when issues come up. During the summer, it might make sense to get your heating system repaired in preparation for the winter. 


During the winter, our team is extremely busy trying to fix and maintain heating systems that are on the fritz. This is just the way things are, and we need to try and help as many people as possible.

That being said, if your air conditioner decides to fail on the hottest day of the summer, we’ll likely be busy trying to fix other AC systems as well, and it could be a little while until we can get to you.

So, it’s important to consider availability when scheduling an AC repair. If it’s cold out, that might be the perfect opportunity to schedule a repair for your air conditioner, since it’s not an emergency and it can be more easily penciled in by a team of professionals.

Prioritize Your Problems

Look, if your heating system is in great shape and your AC seems to be the only thing in your home that’s struggling, then it seems like a high priority on the list of things to get done.

This method of prioritizing problems can ultimately save you money and remove stress from the equation. We’ll work with you to ensure that your home functions flawlessly, leaving you comfortable and content.
