AC Maintenance Matters!

Monday, February 19th, 2018 at 11:00 am

AC-technician-outdoorsYou live in Florida. You are no stranger to oppressively hot and frequently muggy weather. It’s just part of life down here, and a lot of us love the heat and general weather pattern that comes with all of this sunshine. Of course, it is a lot easier to love the type of weather that we’re so frequently dealing with when we have dependable and effective air conditioners in our homes. That is exactly why routine AC maintenance in Palm Bay, FL is so vital.

If you are not diligent in scheduling professional air conditioning maintenance on an annual basis, you are really setting yourself up for trouble. Trust us when we tell you that a lot of the problems that we see with air conditioners could have been avoided or, at least, caught earlier on with annual AC tune-ups. Don’t let your system catch you off-guard. Schedule professional air conditioning maintenance with the pros on our team. You won’t regret it.

What Does AC Maintenance Mean?

AC maintenance means giving your air conditioner an annual overhaul in order to keep it functioning at peak performance levels. It includes a thorough inspection of the system, but it doesn’t end there. Like your own annual physical, the inspection of your system gives your AC technicians important information regarding the overall condition of your system and can help to surface any concerns uncovered during the operation.

Unlike your own physical, however, there is actually a lot being done throughout the process in order to address the general wear and tear that the system has incurred over the time since its last tune-up. Whereas your physician may notice such “wear and tear” or other issues during your physical, perhaps giving you a referral to a specialist, our technicians will be tuning the system up as they go along.

What Does It Entail?

While routine maintenance may result in the discovery of more serious issues that may require follow-up repair services, there is a lot to be done during the tune-up itself. Your technicians will check your air filter and replace as needed. They’ll clean up the coils in the system to help it do its job more effectively. They’ll check and clean the condensate drain pan and line.

Electrical connections will be tightened and tested, capacitors tested, voltage and amperage measured, and thermostat settings checked. It’s a lot of work that only trained professionals can complete properly. Not only does attempting to tune up your system on your own put the system itself at risk of damages, but it could also put you in a dangerous situation yourself.

What Are the Benefits?

When you run your air conditioner as much as we do, wear and tear can start to add up quickly. By scheduling routine AC tune-ups, you’ll be helping your air conditioner to function more efficiently. The better maintained it is, the less energy it will use in its operation. That means the less you’ll be paying in energy costs, too.

Plus, it keeps the need for repairs at bay, and can even help to extend your system’s lifespan. Now, no system is going to be repair free, and no system will last forever. Routine maintenance will help to keep those repair needs to a minimum, however, and will help to keep your system functioning properly for as long as possible.
