Summers are hot in Charlotte, North Carolina. Therefore, it’s important to get your air conditioner ready for the peak cooling season. You should have your AC system professionally cleaned and checked every spring. Read on to learn more about getting your AC system ready for the summer.
Have Your AC System Cleaned
As your air conditioner runs, it accumulates dust and dirt, especially in the filter, coils and other components. A dirty system can get clogged and may lose operating and cooling efficiency. If you hire a professional to perform a maintenance, they’ll change the air filter for you. This will be part of the process of cleaning key parts and areas of the central air conditioner. They’ll also clean the condenser unit’s components on the outside unit.
Have Your AC System Checked for Potential Problems
A professional tuneup involves performing tests to check for potential problems. Your service technician will check the air conditioner’s motor, blower, drain line, coils, fins, air pressure, temperature, refrigerant levels, return and supply lines and more. All of the parts need to be in working order to optimize the airflow. Sometimes, replacing one small part will prevent a bigger problem later on. As a result, you’ll avoid paying for costlier future repairs.
Decrease Your Energy Usage and Bills
If you have a professional handle the maintenance, your AC system will work more effectively and use less energy to keep your home cool. This will save you money on monthly utility bills. You’ll also do your part to minimize your environmental impact by reducing your home’s carbon footprint.
