Time For Spring Cleaning and Operating Check-Up

It’s that time of year again. Spring! For most of us, that means shaking off the remains of winter, getting organized and preparing for the warmer days ahead. In other words, spring cleaning!

While you undertake the task of preparing your home for spring, remember that this is also the time to maintain your air conditioner.

For most homeowners, spring is the ideal time to schedule an air conditioning tune-up.  After sitting idle all winter, your system may be a little rusty and have few kinks and a tune-up is the best way to eliminate any negative impact the winter may have had.

Why maintenance matters. While the temptation for some homeowners may be to neglect regular air conditioning maintenance, we assure you that it is just as important as vehicle maintenance.

Maintenance that is performed early in the season can identify or prevent many small problems from becoming more expensive problems later on when the summer heat really kicks in
You’ll also beat the long waits and higher prices that come during the summer months, when peak demand occurs…and when you really want your air conditioner to be working.

What needs to be done. First and foremost, air conditioner maintenance is not a do-it-yourself project. Let a professional do it.

During your service appointment the technician will check on the various components of your air conditioning unit, including coolant levels and the air filter. The evaporator will be cleaned, along with the condenser coils and drains.

During a service call, your technician will also be looking out for any red flags that may lead to larger problems.  If your freon level is low, it’s not because it got burned up the way your car burns gas.  It means there’s a leak, and that’s a problem because coolant is toxic.  It could also lead to compressor failure.
