Air Conditioning Maintenance
While we don’t mind coming out to fix your air conditioning (it’s what we do), we’d rather service your equipment before you need emergency repairs. As part of your seasonal AC maintenance and tune-up, your HVAC technician will check your refrigerant levels, determine if there are any leaks, and properly dispose of discharged Freon. We’ll also check the controls, electrical terminals, belts, connectors, etc. and replace worn or broken parts before they become a big problem.
We’ll recommend additional non-emergency replacements and upgrades that can help extend the life of your system. This gives you the information and time to think about what you want to do with your system before you’re on the spot to make a decision.
I Changed My Filter. Isn’t that Enough?
Not exactly…There are two types of coils in your AC or heat pump; your indoor evaporator coils and outdoor condenser coils. These can become clogged with just about anything over time, depending on where they’re located in your home, this could include dirt, bacteria, pet hair, tobacco smoke, and rust. All of these things cause erosion, deterioration, and eventual malfunction of AC equipment. Having them cleaned regularly is important. And we recommend this at least once a year. Can’t remember the last time your coils were looked at or cleaned? Then, it’s probably time for HVAC maintenance.
