In the winter, your air conditioner is the last thing on your mind. But in the spring, as summer approaches and temperatures finally start to go up, you look forward to the days that you’ll want to turn your air conditioner on after you enjoy a beautiful day outside in the sun.
Although the heat will be a welcome change this spring, you’ll still need your air conditioner to be in good condition for when those days get a little too warm. And in order to ensure your air conditioner is up to speed in the summer, it’s an excellent idea to schedule an AC maintenance visit this spring.
What Is AC Maintenance?
Air conditioning maintenance is a service that allows you to get the most out of your air conditioning system all summer long. It puts your air conditioner into better condition, potentially helping to prevent repairs and lower your monthly energy bills. In addition, you’ll find out about any repairs that you might need right now. Here’s how it works –
- An inspection: This allows a technician to determine whether or not there are major issues in the system. You can make repairs now, while temperatures are mild, rather than waiting for the system to fail and for repairs to become costlier later on in the season.
- A tune-up: A few adjustments can put your air conditioner at peak performance and efficiency levels. Thermostat calibrations, for example, and a few electrical adjustments might allow for the system to use less energy, at a lower monthly maintenance cost to you.
- Cleaning: Some of the components of your air conditioner may be too dirt for efficiency and high performance, including the blower fan and the coil. A dirty outdoor coil can make your air conditioner run in poor condition, forcing it to struggle to release heat, which is a key part of the cooling process.
