This is the time of year when people start to think about summer cooling. Is your air conditioning system ready for the warmer weather ahead? It can be, when you make sure you get the preventive maintenance you need in the spring. Getting an AC tune up is one of the most important things you can do for your home cooling system, but why?
According to the Department of Energy (DOE), there are many reasons why you should have your AC system tuned up on an annual basis. The main reason, however is that your system will not perform optimally without it. The DOE says, “Neglecting necessary maintenance ensures a steady decline in air conditioning performance while energy use steadily increases.”
What does that mean for you, the homeowner? Without proper maintenance, your AC system simply will not perform as well as it should. You won’t be able to adequately cool your space, and chances are, your system will run harder than it needs to. And, that can lead to wear and tear, and eventually, system failure. Additionally, it will require more energy to operate your system – and that will lead to higher utility bills.
So, how does an AC tune up ensure optimal system performance?
When you choose to have your air conditioning serviced by one of the qualified technicians at All Seasons, your AC will receive the tender loving care it needs to run perfectly throughout the summer months. We’ll make sure the filter is clean, and if not, we’ll replace it. And we’ll clean your coils, straighten your coil fins, and make sure your condensate drain is working properly.
Additionally, we’ll check refrigerant levels and make sure there are no leaks. If your air conditioning system is in need of refrigerant, we’ll charge it with the proper type. Not every system uses the same kind of refrigerant, and it’s important to make sure the correct kind is used for optimal system performance. We’ll check belts and electric components, and we’ll look for any small concerns that could be come large – and expensive – issues down the road.
