Preventive maintenance is key to making sure you stay cool in your home all summer long. The heat in the San Joaquin Valley is intense and you want to make sure your air conditioner doesn’t break down when you need it most.
Like any other machinery, your air conditioner needs regular maintenance in order to keep running at peak performance. This will keep your circulated air pumping through your home efficiently and keep your energy bills down by not forcing it to work harder than necessary.
Preventive maintenance also will help identify and repair any small issues that could eventually become major issues. Catching these types of problems early on will help you avoid massive repair expenses.
Here are a few of the things that are done during a routine maintenance check up:
- Clean condenser coils
- Clean indoor coil
- Check refrigerant charge
- Adjust and clean blower components
- Lubricate moving parts
- Tighten electrical connections
- Check thermostat settings
All of these components that are checked play a major role in keeping you and your family comfortable. Making sure they’re running properly minimizes the chance you and your family will have to bear a sweltering Fresno summer without air conditioning for any length of time.
It’s never too late to get your air conditioner inspected but the best time is right now before the summer hits in full force.
