Having an annual air conditioning service is vital in maintaining the longevity of your air conditioner.
Since 1974, Southwest Heating & Cooling has gained extensive industry knowledge, experience and competency that ensure your air conditioning service will be done right the first time.
Here are some reasons why you should have you air conditioner serviced today!
1. Dirty Air Filter
Every Spring and early Summer you make sure that you change out your air filter. A dirty filter can clog your air conditioner’s condensing coil with dust and contaminants causing your air conditioner to freeze up which will adversely affect its output. If you have a maintenance plan with your local HVAC contractor, they will ensure that your air conditioning filter is properly cleaned and installed.
2. Outside Air Conditioner Unit Not Properly Maintained
Go outside and take a look at your condenser. Is it dirty or covered with debris? Having a maintenance plan for your air conditioner will help ensure that your air conditioner is clean. Ensuring that the condensing coils are cleaned regularly is critical in proper cooling function of your air conditioner.
3. Check Your Thermostat
In Colorado we know that the weather can go up and down. One day we may need the air conditioning on, and the next day, we need the heater. Check your thermostat and ensure that it is set on cool. If it is on heat, switch is to cool, and you are ready to go.
4. Low on Refrigerant or Freon
When an air conditioner is blowing out hot air, a refrigerant or Freon leak is most likely the culprit. If there isn’t enough Freon in the air conditioner for too long, it is likely to shut down. Best thing to do is contact your local HVAC technician to make sure you get your levels at the required status.
Make sure your home is cool and comfortable for the Summertime. Having preventative maintenance done on your air conditioning unit will make a world of difference. Keeping an eye on these tasks will reduce your need for costly repairs. The last thing that you want in the middle of the summer heat is a costly repair for your air conditioner. Periodically conducting preventative maintenance on your air conditioner will improve the functionality and longevity of your air conditioner.
