Outlining the benefits of routine Spring A/C Preventative Maintenance

1 new

As spring approaches, we know that the summer heat is soon to follow. As a homeowner, we look to maintain our home routinely, and one item atop of the list should be your heating and air conditioning system components. Preventative maintenance (PM) for any mechanical equipment such as your vehicle or HVAC system, inevitably helps to cut down costly repairs, and for our cooling systems this is especially true during those hot and humid midsummer days that will soon be upon us.

Maintaining your system will provide many benefits. To name just a few, a well-maintained system will help reduce your energy costs, improve air quality, and even lengthen the life of the equipment. Efficiency and performance are key to your indoor comfort as well as the health of your wallet, during the dog days of summer. The last thing that you want is to not only be overwhelmed by an uncomfortable home, but also experience unnecessary excessive energy costs.

When our technicians visit your home to perform a PM Service, they are trained to inspect all necessary components of the system to prevent future problems. If a potential problem is detected or if the system is not working to the best of its ability, we will recommend a viable remedy at the time of our visit. Taking such preventative measures, although can incur an additional fee at the time of the visit, will still prove to be less costly in the long run.

Below is a brief overview of what our technicians do during a Spring Preventative Maintenance service visit.

  • Checking refrigerant levels, monitoring refrigerant pressures, and temperatures
  • Cleaning condenser coils & evaporator coils
  • Inspecting air filters & cleaning/replacing them when necessary
  • Inspect & adjust all safety components/controls
  • Clean and inspect condensate drain lines & fittings
  • Inspect all cooling system electrical wires, connectors, and terminals
  • Lubricate fan motors (if applicable) & contactors
  • Test system starting capabilities
  • Check the thermostat calibration & replace batteries
  • Measure running & starting amperes, line & control voltage

Whether your system was recently installed, or is nearing end of its life expectancy, there is no better time than now to enroll in a Seasonal Preventative Maintenance Plan. The benefits of these plans outweigh the cost of them. It not only offers you peace of mind, but also added comfort and savings when it matters the most.
