Summer will soon be upon us, and the last thing you want to happen during the upcoming hot months is for your air conditioning system to break down. This is why it’s so important to schedule an annual A/C service before things start sizzling in the San Joaquin Valley.
Just as your car requires preventative maintenance for smooth operation, so does your home’s air conditioning system. An annual A/C service performed by a professional can alert you to minor problems before they turn into major and expensive problems. Annual A/C service is also a good way to make sure you’re saving on energy costs.
While you should change your system’s air filters as often as monthly during the cooling season, other specialized tasks should be left to a professional. An annual A/C service by a heating and cooling professional will usually include:
- Checking and cleaning the unit’s coils
- Checking the coil fins for damage
- Checking the condensate drain for clogs
- Cleaning the blower mower
- Lubricating all moving parts
- Testing the thermostat
- Checking the refrigerant level and recharging if needed
