Importance of Air Conditioning Maintenance
Whether you have a car, lawn mower, or bicycle, you understand that each one must have some type of maintenance. It could be something as simple as changing the oil or airing up the tires, but you know it has to be done if the product is to last. Air conditioning systems are no different and need periodic maintenance and tune-ups to continue running for as long as possible. A few key ways that ProSolutions Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning can help your AC last for a number of years include:
- AC filter changes
- Evaporator coil cleanings
- Lubricating the blower motor
- Calibrating your thermostat
- Inspect refrigeration lines and top them off if needed
- Check the compressor and condenser operations
We will run through a complete checklist of items to ensure your air conditioning unit stays working hard for you throughout the summer. Although you can technically get away with opting out of these inspections and tune-ups, it isn’t recommended. Oftentimes, failing to keep your system properly maintained will cause it to fail sooner than it should and may even void the warranty. Also, keep in mind that a clean and well-working unit will help you save a ton of money on energy costs.
Signs Your Air Conditioning May Need Repairs
Most air conditioning systems don’t suddenly stop working, but instead, will give signs of potential failure. These signs and symptoms can be obvious but oftentimes are almost unnoticeable. Here’s what to look for:
- Vents blowing warm air
- Little to no air flow
- Loud noises
- Burning odours
- Inaccurate thermostat
- Water or refrigerant leaks
Our expert cooling contractors offer long-lasting AC repair services that keep your home comfortable and cool. Not sure if that’s what you need? Give us a call for detailed inspections.
