Your cooling system is the main thing keeping you comfortable in your home, yet it is something that many of us take for granted. But just like a vehicle requires tune-ups and oil changes, your air-conditioning system needs to be checked regularly to keep it in optimal shape so it won’t breakdown unexpectedly. Avoid being suddenly stuck without air conditioning this summer by having an HVAC specialist perform a preventive service check.
During an HVAC inspection, a contractor checks every component of your air-conditioning system to make sure it is in working order and shows no signs of deterioration. Any parts that need replaced will be fixed before large-scale problems develop that could require more expensive repairs in the future.
Preventive maintenance services should also include making sure that your air conditioner is running as efficiently as possible. The refrigerant levels will be inspected, along with the refrigerant’s flow and coils, to make sure you aren’t paying too much each month on your energy bills. The savings this creates can help offset the cost of a maintenance check.
Here are a few of the other steps performed during a service check.
- Moving parts lubricated.
- Blower components adjusted.
- System controls checked.
- Condenser coil cleaned.
- Electrical connections tightened.
Homeowners rely on consistent use of air-conditioning systems, and A/Cs require regularly schedule preventive maintenance. If it has been more than a year since your last HVAC inspection, you need to schedule one immediately. It will provide you with the peace of mind that you are protected from the North Carolina heat all summer long.
