Time For A/C Maintenance Service
It’s that time of the season again, summer is around the corner. Have you done the maintenance to be prepared for another hot summer?
Getting it done early is a responsible way to make sure you won’t be sweating in your home. During the heat of June and July it can take extended periods of time to find an A/C technician to complete repairs or even schedule an appointment.
Saying “goodbye” to winter is also saying “hello” to summer.
Refrigerants have been stuck in your copper pipes all winter and slowly turning into non condensables or slowly leaking out. Compressors that kick on for the first time all season will sometimes through high amperage to give an early warning. Not testing your HVAC equipment is taking
your chances against system damage or failure.
Condensers have been collecting mud grass all winter and may have hardened to the point that the A/C unit can not expend heat from the unit. Professional acid treatment will extend the life of your A/C unit.
Proper Refrigerant Levels
Not having the correct levels of refrigerant is not only not going to cool your home adequately but will also cost more in the process of unit running for extended periods of time.
Condenser Fan Motors
Over a period of time of non-use, condenser fan motors get stiff and the bearings of a motor may not turn so easily on first use, a little maintenance can go a long way towards extending the life or unnecessary replacement.
