Routine Maintenance Prevents Air Conditioning Repairs

woman-sitting-comfortablyWe run our air conditioning systems very hard in this part of the country, so it should really come as no surprise to hear that you are going to require air conditioning repairs in Cary, NC at some point. What may surprise you, though, is the fact that many repairs could easily have been avoided if the homeowners in question had been more diligent in scheduling routine air conditioning maintenance.

When it comes down to it, there is no better way in which to keep air conditioning repair needs at bay than by having the system tuned up professionally and on an annual basis. There are a couple of very basic maintenance tasks, such as changing out your air filter and keeping the outdoor clear of debris, that you can handle on your own. Thorough maintenance demands much more than this, however, and it is a job that must be handled by trained professionals. 

What Does Maintenance Actually Entail?

As mentioned above, changing air filters and keeping the area around the outdoor unit clean are important AC maintenance tasks. They are also truly just the tip of the iceberg, though. When it comes to air conditioning maintenance, there is a whole lot more to do, and doing it requires the tools and training that only professionals have to offer.

Moving parts will need to be lubricated as needed. Electrical connections, wiring, and current will have to be checked and assessed. Any loose components will have to be tightened up or resecured. Refrigerant levels will need to be checked, and low levels will require not only recharging the refrigerant but pinpointing the source of existing leaks. It’s a big job with big benefits, but only when completed properly every step of the way.

But Is Routine Maintenance Really Needed Yearly?

Yes, absolutely. We live in an area where we run our air conditioners a lot for the bulk of the year. That all translates to some serious wear and tear on the system. Now, not only can this wear and tear lead to damage, but the downtime¬†following the conclusion of the season can make things worse. There is a reason why people do cool down sessions after intense workouts, right? When you have your system tuned up going into every cooling season, you’ll have no doubt that it is in the condition necessary to move forward successfully.
