When the weather begins to warm up outside, you’ll want to make sure that your air conditioner is properly working. Call an Air Conditioning Glendale area professional to perform a maintenance check before you have a problem in the middle of a heat wave. Below you’ll discover important information about regular maintenance on your air conditioning unit.
Q.) How often should I schedule a maintenance check on my system?
A.) To keep your unit running efficiently, it’s recommended that you call a professional to inspect your heating and air conditioning system twice a year. Most customers schedule one maintenance visit before the hot weather starts and the other one before the onset of cold weather. With regular maintenance visits, a professional can discover any problems with your system and repair them before they cause your unit to fail completely. Regular servicing of your unit also keeps your system running more efficiently, which saves you money on heating and cooling costs.
Q.) What does the technician do during a maintenance visit?
A.) The technician will give your unit a 14 point inspection, which includes checking the thermostat, fuses, wiring, connections and controls. The technician will also clean the evaporator, condenser coils and change the air filter. He will lubricate the bearings and fan motor, and check the belts for wear. To complete the inspection, he will check the refrigerant level and inspect the duct work for any obstructions.
Q.) Is there anything that I need to do between maintenance visits to ensure that my air conditioner is performing at its best?
A.) Between visits you should regularly check the air filter and change it if necessary, especially when you’re constantly running your system. Keep the weeds down around your unit so the air flow isn’t obstructed and call an Air Conditioning Glendale technician at Arizona Refrigeration Service Inc if you notice any problems with your system.
