It’s time to make your spring-cleaning checklist. Your to-do list should include calling a heating and cooling company for AC maintenance. An annual maintenance visit will help you get top performance from your unit, and it may also extend the life of your system.
Cleaning and Clearing
Perhaps dirt and debris have gathered on your AC unit. There may be a clog in your drain line or residue in your drain pan. Plus, your filter is likely ready to be replaced. A professional air conditioner technician knows to check and clean each component so your system will run as efficiently as possible.
Lubricating and Tightening
Your air conditioner is made up of many different parts that work together to produce cool air. If any one of them stops working properly, you may lose efficiency, or the system may totally stop working. To ensure peak performance, the technician will lubricate all the moving pieces and tighten all the connections between electrical wires.
Checking and Repairing Leaks
Leaks will keep your system from working as well as it could. For example, if your ductwork is leaky, you will lose cool air and allow hot air in. A leak that allows the refrigerant to escape can cause you to run out of coolant. An inspection may turn up signs of a leak. In that case, you’ll be presented with repair options.
Running and Calibrating
By the time your tune-up is complete, your AC technician will have fired up the system and observed how it runs. If anything isn’t working properly, you’ll receive recommendations for repairs. While the unit is running, the technician will also calibrate the thermostat. That way, you can count on cooling your house to the perfect temperature all season long.
