How Often Will You Need Air Conditioning Services?
The Importance of Air Conditioning Maintenance
Even if your unit is working fine and you do not think there are any issues, you must perform routine maintenance. It is the best way to prevent costly problems from happening and to ensure maximum efficiency. Even high efficiency units can slowly lose their efficiency over time. A maintenance appointment will clean up the interior and exterior of the unit, including coils, condensers and filters to prevent any dust or debris from lowering your efficiency.
Also, if issues are caught early enough, you will not have to endure costly AC repairs. It could be the difference between an $80 quick repair and a few hundred dollars for a major repair.
Lastly, do not forget that most manufacturer warranties require that you receive annual maintenance from a certified professional, otherwise you risk voiding your warranty. So, even if your Calgary air conditioning unit malfunctions while under warranty, the manufacturer may not honor it.
How Often Should You Perform Service?
You should have your unit serviced once a year just before summer. That way you can ensure it is ready to handle the excess load of the season. Some things a technician will do during your annual service appointment include:
- Change your filter
- Clean coils
- Clean out and flush condenser drain
- Check for operating pressure
- Measure temperature gauges
- Check voltage and amperage of the motor
- Check thermostat
- Perform a multi-point inspection
With summer temperatures coming up slowly, now is the time to start thinking about annual maintenance on your unit. Contact Just In Time Furnace in Calgary, Alberta to schedule your annual tune-up and get a multi-point service for a single fee.
