Summer is just around the corner. Don’t wait until your air conditioner is running at full-tilt to find out it might not be working right. Spring is a great time to schedule a seasonal HVAC maintenance and checkup for a couple of reasons: one, you won’t have to worry about long waits for service if your cooling equipment needs service or repairs in the peak of summer heat; secondly, you won’t have to worry about high costs of replacing expensive parts or even the entire system because of a catastrophic failure.
When you call and schedule seasonal HVAC maintenance, you want to know what to expect. A professional will inspect, clean and adjust your A/C, and specifically:
- Check thermostat settings and adjust if necessary
- Check and inspect the condensate drain
- Inspect system controls
- Check and adjust refrigerant levels
- Check and adjust airflow
Once the inspection is done, recommendations will be made and maintenance will be completed, including:
- Tighten all electrical connections
- Lubricate all moving parts
- Clean evaporator and condenser coils
- Clean and adjust blower components
Northeast Ohio daytime temperatures in the summer can rise into the 90s for consecutive days, which can make for some uncomfortable indoor climates. Making sure your air conditioning is in proper working order and performing at its peak efficiency can save money and ensure a comfortable home environment. When you schedule seasonal HVAC maintenance, that doesn’t absolve you of some homeowner maintenance steps, however. Inspect the air filter monthly and change it when necessary. If you have questions about this, our technicians can help you.
