Don’t Forget to Schedule Air Conditioning Maintenance

thermostat-is-risingYou certainly are not going to be running your air conditioner to cool your home down in the next few days. Why, then, are we reminding you about how important it is to schedule professional air conditioning maintenance already? The simple answer is so that your air conditioner is there for you and ready for action as soon as you need it. You don’t want to wait until the last minute, only to find that summer’s heat arrived a bit earlier than you expected.

When you are ready to schedule your annual air conditioning maintenance for the year, remember that only trained, experienced professionals can do the job. It requires much more than simply changing out your air filters and clearing your outdoor unit of debris. When you work with us, you can count on a thorough AC tune-up in Portsmouth, VA.

What Goes On During an Air Conditioning Tune-Up?

Much more than you probably realize. There are definitely minor maintenance tasks that you can handle on your own, and should handle on your own, such as changing your air filters on a regular basis. However, there are also a lot of maintenance tasks that you really cannot handle on your own, no matter how well-stocked your tool bag or how many online instructional videos you watch. When we tune up your AC, we’ll address the following needs:

  • Check all electrical connections.
  • Check for any oil/refrigerant leaks.
  • Check operating temperatures.
  • Check thermostat.
  • Check amperage.
  • Lubricate moving parts as necessary.
  • Check relays.
  • Tighten connections
  • and much more.

Is All of This Really Necessary?

Is your air conditioner going to break down entirely just because you miss one annual maintenance visit? Maybe not. Is it going to function at peak performance and efficiency levels if you skip a maintenance visit? Definitely not. If your air conditioner is not tuned up as needed, then you simply cannot expect it to operate as well as it should.

No mechanical system is going to run as smoothly as possible if it is not kept in prime working condition. The harder that any mechanical system has to work in order to do its job, the more energy it is going to use in doing so. This results in reduced energy efficiency, leaving you to pay more for a lesser performance from the system. We believe you deserve better than that, and certainly better than the unreliable performance heading your way if you keep ignoring your system’s needs.
