The Benefits of AC Preventative Maintenance
Let’s say you took a nap. A nice, long nap of roughly six months or so. You might have slept even longer if someone hadn’t woken you up and demanded you report to work on the double. Forget about taking a shower. Forget breakfast or even a glass of orange juice. Just hop up out of bed, throw on some clothes, and get to work now!
If such a thing could happen, what sort of productivity do you think you could muster in the early stages of your return to the working world? Little to none, right?
Well, in a far-fetched kind of way, now you understand what’s expected of your central air conditioning system the first time it’s engaged in a new cooling season. It’s done nothing but idle around all fall and winter when just like that, you turn it on expecting nothing short of perfection.
Without an annual system cleaning and inspection, there’s a good chance you’re going to be disappointed in its performance. So instead of shocking it back into active duty, we have a better idea: contacting Correct Temp for our pre-season cleaning and inspection service. That allows us to see what sort of condition it’s in following last summer’s stint. At the same time, we perform certain tasks to help your system perform up to its full potential for the season ahead.
Our is a multi-step process, and these are a just a few of the steps involved:
- Clean or replace your filter
- Inspect and tighten all electrical connections
- Check refrigerant levels and charge as needed
- Check thermostat operation
- Inspect ductwork for cracks, leaks, and efficient airflow
- Inspect all registers for hot and cold spots
- Inspect safety controls
- Verify motor amps
- Check evaporator coil
- Verify blower speed
Done properly and faithfully, annual system maintenance will provide you and your family with enhanced comfort, lower energy bills, cleaner indoor air, and added safety. Contact Correct Temp to schedule service, especially if it’s been a year or more since the last time your system was serviced.
