Love is in the Air - Don't Forget to Love your AC Before Spring!
Groundhog Day came and went with the prediction that spring is on its way! Springtime is when so many homeowners make a list of cleaning "To Do's" after a long winter. The weather warms up, the windows are opened, and the cleaning and decluttering begins! However, you should not forget to include an air conditioner tune up on your list of springtime duties.
Soon enough the weather will warm up, and your air conditioning system will be put to use by cooling your home and removing the humidity from the air. An air conditioner tune up is no different than the tune up maintenance you have performed on your family vehicle. It is one of the "must do" tasks to keep your system running at its peak!
Your certified heating and cooling professional will perform a series of steps to make sure that your system is fully functioning. While it may seem like a small task, an AC tune up involves a number of steps to keep your system running at its highest efficiency. Your HVAC technician will lubricate moving parts, wash your condenser coils, clear the drain lines, inspect and tighten all indoor/outdoor electrical components, check and recharge refrigerant if needed, and verify air flow by adjusting and cleaning the blowers. Along with these few steps, your HVAC technician will perform a thorough maintenance and also test and calibrate your thermostat.
While it may seem like a small task to inspect one system, the benefits to performing this regular maintenance are clear:
- Lower maintenance costs by catching small problems that can turn into big ones
- Lower utility bills by running your system at its peak performance
- Extend the life of your system with regular maintenance
- Improve air quality and comfort level in your home
- Avoid AC problems during peak use and help prevent unexpected break downs
