It’s Spring! Time For A/C Maintenance Service

Posted: March 23, 2021

While early spring normally is too chilly to begin doing cooling tune-ups for our customers, there’s nothing wrong with booking your maintenance service in advance so you can beat the warm weather rush. While the minimum outdoor temperature varies between models, it usually needs to be in the 60°F range before we start going out to do tune-ups. That’s because parts of your air conditioning system—including the refrigerant—are not designed to work below a certain temperature.

How Important Is Annual A/C Maintenance?

Think of it this way. After a long hibernation, your cooling system may be a little rusty and in need of some tender loving care. That’s just one reason why maintenance is important. The fact is, every manufacturer requires annual maintenance to keep your warranty valid. It’s that crucial!

A properly maintained central air conditioning system will have fewer breakdowns than one that has been neglected. Annual maintenance also keeps your air conditioning equipment running at peak efficiency, which means your home stays nice and cool while using less energy.

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 the most (and when you may have to wait longer for service).

Other A/C Care Tips You Can Tackle

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 while waiting for your tune-up service.

  • Clear away obstructions. Remove sticks, leaves, and other debris from around your outdoor unit.
  • Have your ductwork checked. We’ll do FREE duct leakage inspection. If we find problems, we ‘ll recommend our duct sealing service. This will improve your indoor air quality and lower your home energy bills
  • Test your AC unit. Briefly run your cooling system to check for problems – that way you can give us an early alert about what to look for when we do our maintenance service.
  • Ask us about our Central Air Conditioning service plans or heat pump service plans. These include an annual tune-up, money-saving repair coverage and more.
