It’s definitely not a secret that our part of Florida is home to some pretty serious heat and humidity for the majority of the year. And at the height of the summer season, this heat can become unbearable. Therefore, it’s essential that you have your air conditioner maintained on a regular basis—but why are we talking about this now?
Because temperatures are cooling off a bit, and if you didn’t have your AC tuned-up before summer began, or if you are utilizing a year-round heat pump system, then now is as good a time as any to schedule your next AC tune-up, and any subsequent repairs.
Take Advantage of AC Maintenance
Air conditioning tune-ups are not a luxury, they are a necessity. Without regular maintenance, there’s really no way you can count on your cooling system to operate at peak performance levels. Just like any other mechanical system that goes through such extensive use, it wears down over time and can break down prematurely without proper care.
In order to enjoy the level of performance quality that you deserve, it’s best to let our professionals tune-up your air conditioner when the time comes for it.
What Are the Benefits?
Perhaps the biggest advantage of an AC tune-up session is preventing the worst of air conditioning repairs in West Palm Beach, FL. It’s during your maintenance appointment that our service professionals will thoroughly inspect your air conditioner, make any necessary adjustments, clean the system for optimal, efficient performance, and alert you to any small repair needs that may have been detected.
Handling these repairs now ensures that they won’t turn into much bigger problems later on. Maintenance keeps your cooling system in the best working condition possible, enabling it to function efficiently, effectively, and reliably!
Can I Just Maintain My Own System?
There are a couple maintenance tasks that yes, you can and should do on your own. Changing your air filter is one of them. During periods of use, you should be changing your air conditioner’s air filter every 1-3 months—more often if you have significant contaminants in your home such as cigarette smoke or pet dander.
For truly effective and comprehensive maintenance, however, you want a professional for the job. When our team tunes-up your system, we’ll provide a number of different services, including but not limited to:
- Testing your thermostat
- Checking your start and run capacitors
- Checking your electrical connections
- Checking for any refrigerant leaks
- Cleaning coils
- Lubricating any moving parts in the system that need it
Schedule Repairs As Needed
As we mentioned above, one of the steps of AC maintenance is checking for any repair needs that may exist. If you want your air conditioner to function at its best for the years to come, it’s important that you schedule air conditioning repair at the first sign of a problem, particularly if that problem is found during maintenance (as it’s likely it’s been a growing problem at that point).
