Seasonal Checkup And Maintenance For The Air Conditioner At Your Home
It’s an HVAC annual rite of passage – flipping your home’s thermostat setting from ‘heat’ to ‘cool’ as each new season brings a change in cooling and heating demands. To be sure that the HVAC system is ready for the annual flip in your Prescott home, Prescott Air Conditioning recommends a seasonal checkup to make certain that your HVAC system is working properly. The hottest day of the year is a terrible time to find out that you need service.
Why Schedule Preseason Maintenance?
Scheduling a preseason inspection of your HVAC system may guard homeowners against unexpected failures. A preseason inspection may reveal rot, rust, soot, leaks, corroded electrical contacts or frayed wires on your home’s air conditioner or heat pump. Without a preseason inspection, those items, as well as others, would go unnoticed. Left untreated, those items can potentially lead to bigger, more expensive failures.
What Does HVAC Maintenance Include?
Seasonal maintenance may differ from contractor to contractor, so it’s important for homeowners to know what exactly your HVAC tech will inspect, clean, repair and replace and the total cost you can expect.
For air conditioners, system maintenance may include these tasks:
- Inspect and clean coils
- Clean or replace filters
- Lubricate moving parts
- Inspect system controls
- Check fans and blowers
- Inspect the heat exchanger
- Examine the ignition switch
- Tighten electrical connections
- Verify operating temperatures
- Check refrigerant and pressures
- Replace parts that are showing wear and tear
HVAC technicians expect to get busy as soon as summertime temperatures spike so it’s a good idea to schedule your seasonal inspection sooner rather than later. Regularly scheduled maintenance of your HVAC system may not only increase the life of your system but keep it running efficiently which means lower energy costs while keeping your Prescott home cooler. Don’t wait any longer to schedule a maintenance appointment. Call Prescott Air Conditioning today at 928-308-1254.
