Summer officially arrived a little more than a week ago. We’ve experienced some hot days, but the worst is yet to come.
Is your AC system cooling as efficiently as it did during the same time last year? Was your first summer electric bill similar to last year’s bill? If the answer to either question is no, it’s time to schedule and air conditioner tune-up.
Even if it seems the system is running well, it’s always a good idea to have your cooling system checked and tuned at last once annually. A yearly check out can save your money now and long-term.
Our air conditioning check out and tune-up includes a complete, thorough inspection and cleaning of all system parts, a coolant level check, adjustment of the thermostat, instrument testing of electrical parts (like motors and fans) and their connected parts (belts), and lubrication of all moving parts. Most AC contractors will provide you a detailed report that includes recommended updates or repairs, and any relevant system information you can use to track the AC system’s yearly performance.
Depending on the type of filter on your system, you should change filters every other month or more often. During a tune-up, our maintenance tech will show you where they’re located and how to change them. If you don’t know where the filters are, or how to change them, this is a great opportunity to learn.
It’s also an opportunity learn about the various filter types available. You might find the alternatives to the inexpensive disposable fiberglas filters a better value:
