With the coronavirus pandemic hitting the country in March our spring schedules looked much different than they have in the past. Kids were out of school early. College students were home doing school online as well. Many people were out of a job. Only now are things starting to look and feel more like normal. If you missed some of your typical spring activities it is not too late to do them now. Spring cleaning can start in May instead of April. Outdoor projects that you typically do in spring that you have not started yet you can begin working on now. In the midst of the chaos you may have forgotten to schedule your spring air conditioner maintenance appointment with Ambient Heating & Air Conditioning. It is not too late! There are many different reasons that having your maintenance service performed is so important. Today Ambient Heating & Air Conditioning is going to highlight some of the benefits of having your air conditioning unit serviced now.
Air Conditioning Maintenance Checklist
Before we started talking about the importance of these appointments, let’s talk about what the appointment consists of. We will send out an experienced technician to check the refrigerant level; test for refrigerant leaks; inspect air ducts; measure airflow through the evaporator coil; inspect electrical terminals; clean essential parts of your unit; lubricate and tighten any parts necessary; and inform you have any repairs that need to be done moving forward.
Air Conditioner Tune Ups Save You Money
Have you ever heard the saying “you have to spend money to make money?” Change that phrase to “you have to spend money to save money” and you have our first benefit. One of the biggest advantages of having Ambient Heating & Air Conditioning come out for maintenance is that it can help you save money. When we come out we thoroughly inspect your air conditioning unit. We clean and tighten connections, apply lubricant, tighten belts, and more at your appointment. We also help catch any issues that your unit may be having. By catching these issues while they are still small we help you save money on larger repairs that occur as a result of these smaller issues going unnoticed. Having your maintenance appointment done also helps you save money by helping your air conditioning unit run more efficiently. The more efficient that your air conditioner is, the less that it costs to run it. When your unit is top notch shape you can enjoy a comfortable home and lower utility bills.
Maintaining AC Unit Helps it Last Longer
Another benefit of having Ambient Heating & Air Conditioning come out and perform spring maintenance is that your unit will last longer. When your unit is routinely cleaned, tightened, maintained, and repaired it will last longer than a unit that you do no maintenance on. If you have ever had to purchase a new air conditioning unit you know how expensive they are. The longer you can wait before having to make this purchase the happier you will be.
Prevent Air Conditioning Repairs
Another benefit to having your central air conditioning system is preventing major repairs. It’s much better to detect and address small problems early before they escalate.
