In our previous blog post, we told you about some simple ways in which you can help to maintain your air conditioning system. You may recall that our final suggestion was a bit of a switcheroo—that you need to schedule professional AC maintenance with our team! But why is this the case? As you’ll recall, you can change your air filter and clean your outdoor unit on your own. Is there really that much more to cover?
You better believe it! We alluded to the fact that routine HVAC maintenance is something that you need to schedule with a trained, experienced professional because it is too big and complex of a job to handle on your own. That wasn’t a lie! Today we are going to look at some of what we’ll accomplish when tuning up your AC, provided that you schedule your AC services in Apex, NC with our team. So read on, and remember that we’re here for you and your AC system.
We Are Thorough and Meticulous
Changing air filters and cleaning the outdoor unit is a good starting point if you are looking to protect your AC system against damages during operation. It barely scratches the surface of all that has to be done, however. There is a much more involved process that must be followed in order to truly optimize the performance and reliability of your air conditioning system. How involved of a process are we talking about? Consider that some of the tasks that need to be completed include, but are not limited to, the following.
- Checking your thermostat and its operation for proper functionality.
- Cleaning evaporator and condenser coils to ensure proper heat transfer.
- Testing and cleaning electrical contacts and checking for proper power levels.
- Checking and inspecting the condensate drain line/drain pan—you don’t want leaks, right?
- Test system controls.
- Lubricate all moving parts.
As you can see, air conditioning maintenance is actually something of a tall order. Trained professionals know precisely where to train their attention—see what we did there?—in order to ensure that all of your bases are covered.
Why It’s All Worth It
Because your air conditioner is only going to reach peak performance levels if every component within the system at large is able to do just that. If you’re a runner, you won’t go into a marathon with a sprained ankle just because the rest of your leg is working fine, right?
Not only does this maintenance service ensure that everything is in great working condition before you need your AC the most, but it actually gives our technicians a chance to surface any problems with your air conditioner that are already developing. While we may be able to fix some issues at the time of maintenance, we sometimes do come across problems demanding a follow-up visit. That is definitely preferable to failing to notice the problem until it really starts to interfere with the operation of your AC.
