Odds are, your air conditioner has been running pretty consistently for a few weeks. Have you started to notice that it seems to be underperforming? We aren’t talking about hearing strange noises or having noticeably higher energy bills, but more of a “it’s not doing quite what it should be.” A great way to remedy this and get your system back on track is by scheduling a maintenance appointment for your system.
If you are experiencing underperformance, it is likely that your system hasn’t been maintained in the last 12 months. Even if it has, dust, dirt and debris can all have a negative effect on your system. During a maintenance appointment, your system isn’t just given a quick visual inspection; it’s given a full tune-up that’s designed to improve its overall performance. Some of the tasks completed during a routine maintenance appointment are:
- Cleaning of your system, including the components
- Thorough inspection of the unit and its components
- Adjusting of any components that may have shifted
- Lubrication of all moving parts
- Checks of the system, including refrigerant levels
All of these tasks allow you and your system to gain the benefits needed to work optimally throughout the summer months. These benefits include:
- Better energy efficiency – when your system has to work with the wear and tear of seasons past, it will struggle; the attention your system gets during a maintenance appointment allows it to work as efficiently as possible.
- Helps prevent repairs – the reason your technician thoroughly inspects your system is to check for any existing problems; if they are small, they can be attended to during the appointment, and if they are large, you’ll be alerted so that you can arrange to have the issue fixed.
- Better comfort – maintenance keeps your system in good working order; this means it will have no trouble reaching your set temperature.
