Fix Your Air Conditioner Before You Really Need it!

All equipment, even the most reliable like your air conditioner, needs routine maintenance. If you're air conditioner wasn't really doing a great job last summer, now's the time to fix it. Even if everything seems fine, air conditioners need regular tune-ups to ensure efficient operation. Each year, without service, an air conditioner can lose up to 5% efficiency. Imaging how much money you're throwing away due to the drain on your system!

Complex equipment like today’s air conditioners benefit in many ways from annual service. Not only do they recover much of their lost efficiency, they are less likely to suffer a major break down following a routine service. Additionally, East Valley air conditioners serviced regularly have a longer life span. Plus, they increase your comfort, and they operate for less money -- perhaps the best two benefits!

The best time of year to ensure that your air conditioning unit is running efficiently is in the spring, before you really need it. Additionally, some air conditioning companies may offer special deals and technicians may be more readily available to meet your specific service time requests.

An East Valley air conditioner service company, for a pre-determined fee, can visit your house and inspect your air conditioner and all of its components. One of the main things the technician will check is the refrigerant levels, also called Freon. Plus, the service technician will make sure the fan, wiring, switches and other parts are all working properly. The air conditioner repairman may also need to clean the ducts, filters or remove debris that has collected in the compressor unit outside. Often homeowners are unaware of leaves, pine needles and other debris that can collect in the compressor causing the unit to corrode and put additional stress on the system.

In addition to regular maintenance on your air conditioner, you can be sure that you take care of simple things throughout the year. For instance, if your system has disposable filters, check them every two months and replace when necessary. However, if you have a lot of pets in your home, you may want to replace them more often as pet hair can quickly clog a filter putting strain on the intake. For permanent filters, clean as directed by the manufacturer and be sure to make cleaning duct outlets and registers a part of your regular house cleaning routine.
Before the summer really heats up in the East Valley Arizona area, be sure to call your home appliance repairman for an a/c tune-up.
