Temperatures are rising ever so slowly, but soon enough we’ll be back to the scorching summer sun we’re used to. That’s when it’s most likely that your air conditioner will run into trouble, when it’s working harder than ever and using the most energy to attempt to cool your home.
But, of course, that would be the least convenient time for your AC system to fail. You can get your air conditioner into better shape and prevent sudden failure by calling local HVAC technicians early in the AC season.
What Do Technicians Do to Help Your Air Conditioner?
When you call for a routine AC maintenance visit, technicians take several steps to help maintain your air conditioner and keep you more comfortable throughout the summer. A tune-up of the system can help to delay problems. But if there is anything wrong with the system that needs your attention first, a technician will let you know after a thorough inspection so you can make the repairs.
Here are some examples of what your technician may do after a routine inspection:
- Testing controls and safety switches.
- Adjusting belts and pulleys.
- Adding lubrication to motors.
- Calibrating thermostats.
- Check refrigerant levels,
- Clean the condenser coil.
Why Should You Call for Service?
Calling technicians in the spring or early summer helps to prevent come headaches during the hottest time of the year. Air conditioners can benefit in so many ways from a professional service visit:
- Better efficiency, meaning lower bills for you.
- Improved performance.
- Fewer system breakdowns.
- A longer AC lifespan.
But it’s important to call in technicians as early on as possible. You can also sign up for a maintenance program—a contract between you and your local HVAC company that typically includes one or two visits a year (for your heater as well), so that you don’t forget!
