How Crucial Is A/C Maintenance?

A/C repair and maintenance

Posted: April 20, 2018

Although it’s officially been spring for a few weeks now, we’re now just seeing the sign of things to come as the weather slowly warms up. Before you know it, summer will be upon us. The last two summers were the hottest on record, so make sure your air conditioning system is prepared!

After a long hibernation, your A/C system may be a little rusty and in need of some tender loving care. (We call it a tune-up!) That’s one reason why maintenance is important – and why you should be thinking about getting your seasonal A/C maintenance done within the next few weeks.

Regular maintenance can address your air conditioner’s minor aches and pains before they become full-blown injuries – emergencies that usually crop up during the peak demand summer months, when you need your A/C most (and when you may have to wait longer for service).

Although a comprehensive air conditioner tune-up is not a do-it-yourself project, there are some things you can do to get the ball rolling:

  • Test your A/C unit. Briefly run your A/C to check for any problems; that way you can get your equipment fixed long before the heat settles in.
  • Clear obstructions around the outdoor unit. Remove sticks, leaves, and other debris from around your outdoor unit.
  • Have your ductwork checked and then consider sealing your ducts to improve your indoor air quality and lower your home energy bills.
  • Schedule your annual tune-up and inspection. Keeping your A/C system running efficiently is one of the many benefits of having Premium Protection Central Air Conditioning Coverage. We also offer Heat Pump Service Plans.
