Did you know that 80% of the repair calls we get can be attributed to faulty installation or a lack of maintenance? It’s true!
Eliminate problems early when you call us for AC maintenance every year. Instead of facing a catastrophic equipment failure when you need your HVAC system the most, take care of your AC today. Watch our video and continue reading to learn how you can keep your air conditioning system running efficiently this summer!
Have you been told that you have a problem with your compressor? This part keeps your refrigerant circulating so your air conditioner can cool your home.
To keep your compressor working well, we’ll make sure it is well-lubricated with oil so it doesn’t overheat. We’ll also make sure you have enough refrigerant and that it is cooling effectively, so the warm air your system brings in can get cooled down fast.
If you run your compressor without enough refrigerant, it will overheat and you will most likely need a brand new air conditioner.
If your system is frozen or you can see ice, turn your air conditioner off but keep the fan running. Most thermostats will allow you to do this, which will help defrost your system.
Your system may freeze because of either a lack of refrigerant or a lack of airflow. Our maintenance will test for both of these.
There’s no one answer to this question. Older systems often last 25-30 years. Newer ones are made to last 12-15 years, and they come with a 10-year parts warranty.
Regular AC maintenance will help extend the life of your air conditioner. If you neglect it, it may not last as long and you’ll need to replace your air conditioner.
Every AC system produces 3-5 gallons of water per hour. Managing that water flow is important. If the condensate drain gets clogged, you’ll experience major flooding when you turn on your AC.
Our maintenance technicians will check your condensate drain and blow it out so you never have to deal with overhead water damage.
We have worked to improve indoor air quality for years. With COVID-19, it’s become even more important.
Particulates can get lodged in your AC system, especially on your AC coil. You end up breathing these in. When we clean your coil during system maintenance, your air quality will automatically improve.
We can also install a long-term air quality management system. If you’re concerned about indoor air quality, contact us today.
