What does AC Preventative Maintenance Mean?

As a homeowner in often hot and humid Alabama, you might be wondering why there is so much attention around preventative maintenance for central air conditioning systems. Maintenance for the air conditioner is like a tune-up for the family car. It ensures safe, effective and efficient operation of the mechanical and electrical components of the system.

What Air Conditioner Maintenance Means

Air conditioner maintenance means the care and servicing by trained and experienced professionals for all components of the central air conditioner system. Its purpose is to facilitate the best level of operation of the system. In order to do so, the maintenance tasks include system inspection, troubleshooting and identification of any problems that might exist. Detection of problems allows for repairs to be made before a system failure occurs. During a maintenance visit, we run system performance tests, make any necessary adjustments, replace any worn parts and add or remove any needed fluids. During each maintenance visit, we also replace the air filter, check the thermostat and inspect the air ducts.

The Benefits of Preventive Air Conditioner Maintenance

Early detection of potential problems allows the service technicians to repair them so that your air conditioner doesn’t unexpectedly break down or malfunction on what could be the hottest day of the year. Air conditioner maintenance also ensures a high level of air quality by replacing dirty air filters and making sure that the air vents are not obstructed by any debris. By making sure the coolant level in the system is correct, we are able to make sure that the conditioned air will be consistently and constantly cool throughout the summer months.

Scheduling Maintenance Service

HVAC professionals recommend scheduling air conditioner preventative maintenance in the spring, before the high demands of summer heat and humdity come into play. This service ensures that your equipment is in optimal operating condition well before these demands need to be met. This maintenance service is equally important for your heating equipment. It is recommended to schedule heating service in the fall, before the extreme winter weather sets in. Please give us a call at AC by Luquire for additional information.
