Air Conditioning and Heat Pump Maintenance In West GA
Before that first hot day of summer when you’ll want to turn on your air conditioner, it’s best to schedule a maintenance appointment to make sure everything is running smoothly.
For air conditioning, preventative maintenance involves:
- checking Freon pressures.
- inspecting amp draws on electric motors and compressors.
- checking all electrical controls and connections.
- checking all moving parts for excessive wear.
- check thermostat calibration.
- checking overall system operation
- And more!
Many people forget to have a regular spring tune-up, which can lead to problems when you need your air conditioner the most. Running your system with undiagnosed problems can make those issues bigger and lead to more costly repairs.
Failing to maintain your unit and system can also decrease its life, so you’ll find yourself replacing parts more often and even having to replace the unit years earlier than you would normally need to.
Even a basic tune-up will keep your system running well so your home will be more comfortable in the summer.
When all of the components of an air conditioning system are working right, the entire system will be more efficient. Your home will be cooler, you will be able to more easily maintain comfortable temperatures, and you will even save money in the long run.
The temperatures are dropping and before you know it, it’s time to turn your furnace on again. But, is it working right? Will it keep your home warm enough? Will you find yourself without heat on the coldest night of the year?
With a regular fall tune-up, you don’t have to worry about questions like this.
Furnace maintenance appointments will make sure your system is working right and you aren’t likely to have any surprise problems over the winter.
During a furnace tune-up, we’ll:
- make sure your unit is safe.
- detect any gas leaks.
- inspect the flue pipe.
- check the heat exchanger and venting.
- check electrical motors and controls.
- verify temperatures.
- and more.
Skipping a fall tune-up can be dangerous. Undiagnosed problems can pose health and safety problems that aren’t worth the risk.
An unmaintained heating system is also more likely to need regular repairs and even to be replaced earlier than normal. It won’t be as efficient at maintaining warm temperatures and you may find that some areas of your home don’t stay warm.
However, regular tune-ups can prevent these problems.
