With summer’s arrival looming, now is the time to make sure your air conditioning system is equal to the task of keeping you cool when the weather heats up. Investing in preventive maintenance now can save you major headaches down the road, and it just might stave off a major failure when you’re in the throes of a heat wave.
Here’s a sampling of what you can expect from a professional preventive maintenance check on your home’s air conditioning system:
- A test of the thermostat to ensure proper operation and optimal energy efficiency.
- Testing of all system controls.
- An inspection of your condensate drain to ensure it is not clogged or backed up.
- A check on all the system’s electrical connections and an inspection of all mechanical parts to make sure nothing needs repair or replacement.
Preventive maintenance is crucial to extending the life of your furnace, as well, and to keeping your utility bills as low as possible year-round by ensuring that your equipment operates without wasting energy. Systems that aren’t properly maintained are prone to mechanical failures and breakdowns, which can lead to costly repair bills.
