It’s Time to Schedule Your Air Conditioning Spring Time Tune-Up
It was an unusual winter with milder temperatures in Hampton Roads this season. Now spring time is here and you’ve probably noticed that it’s getting warmer quickly and you have already used your air conditioning! Spring time is a great time to get your AC maintenance scheduled to prevent any future air conditioning repairs.
One of the most common AC parts to wear out is the capacitor. A capacitor becomes weak from its year-long haul and having your maintenance done now can prevent future failures. Air conditioners traditionally fail during the hot summer months due to a lack of maintenance in the fall and spring. An air conditioning inspection is essential to help your system during the scorching summer. Below are a few things to consider:
• TIMING: Timing is perhaps the most important step for a tune-up. Small problems can spiral into disasters if your air conditioning unit’s maintenance is neglected. The tune-up is designed to find and fix any potential deficiencies so your system doesn’t break down when it’s sweltering outside.
• SAVINGS: In the long-run, you’ll be saving money. Small fixes can add up to big savings in the future. You don’t want to be in a position where your entire system needs to be replaced a couple of months down the road because something simple wasn’t checked or adjusted earlier. Seasonal maintenance can also help save on monthly utility bills.
• HEADACHES: Think about it. The last thing you want in the middle of summer is having your air conditioning unit break down. To avoid making your refrigerator your new room in mid-June, schedule maintenance now that the weather isn’t so hot!
Spring time maintenance and tune-ups enhance the effectiveness of your system and include air filter cleaning and replacement, detailed inspection of all coils and ductwork, airflow measurement, testing of the heat pump, furnace and entire air conditioning unit, and much more.
