Spring is tune-up season for your central air conditioner. It’s easy to forget about preventative maintenance when your equipment is working perfectly. To stay ahead of the rush, schedule a seasonal tune-up for your air conditioner at the beginning of daylight saving time. Our service technicians are available to perform repairs and maintenance throughout the year, but it’s often easier to schedule a convenient tune-up before the height of the cooling season. Invest in air conditioning maintenance now to keep your home cooler, prevent unwanted repairs and save money all summer.
Air Conditioning Maintenance
When you schedule a seasonal tune-up, we aim to accomplish several key goals. First, our technician will inspect your system to uncover potential issues. Then, we’ll take steps to protect your equipment and help you avoid unnecessary repairs. All of the services that we perform will keep your air conditioner in tip-top shape this year and in the future. Here are a few of the tasks that we complete during a comprehensive tune-up.
- Measure and adjust refrigerant levels as necessary
- Clean evaporator and condenser coils to improve performance
- Adjust blower components to increase efficiency and eliminate hot and cold spots
- Clean condensate drains to alleviate humidity problems and prevent moisture buildup
- Lubricate moving parts to reduce wear and tear
- Tighten electrical connections to protect your equipment
- Check system controls and thermostats for accuracy and functionality
It only takes a minute to schedule preventative maintenance and protect your equipment for the entire season. Getting your central air conditioner inspected and serviced each year is the best way to avoid repairs, increase efficiency and extend its life.
What You Can Do
Things that you do around your house can also help your equipment perform better. Don’t forget to inspect and change your air filters regularly. Clogged filters limit airflow and make your system work harder. This can lead to a variety of secondary problems, such as your system shutting down or your evaporator coil freezing. You can care for your equipment by keeping vegetation away from your compressor or outdoor unit. Finally, call us early in the season to schedule preventative maintenance and to develop a proactive plan. We also provide bi-annual service agreements that can be tailored to your equipment and individual maintenance needs.
