One of the most important things you can do to extend the lifespan of your cooling system and keep it running smoothly all season long is to schedule an annual air conditioning service call. However, if you’re like most homeowners, you may be unclear about just what happens during this call.
What happens during an HVAC service call:
- Clean your system. Our air conditioning technician will thoroughly clean the dust, dirt and debris from your cooling system during the service call. A dirt-clogged system is one of the major reasons that cooling systems fail prematurely. A clean AC system also uses less energy, since it doesn’t have to push air through that dirt, so this cleaning can save you money on your monthly electric bill.
- Lubricant the moving parts. Another key part of an annual service call is to oil all of the mechanical parts of your cooling system and make sure that they are in good working order. Catching a potential problem early during the service call can potentially save you hundreds of dollars in repairs later.
- Check the refrigerant. The technician will also check to make sure that your system has enough refrigerant to operate efficiently and that there are no leaks in the coil or other parts of the system. Having adequate refrigerant means that your cooling system will keep your living spaces comfortable, even during the middle of the hot Arizona summer.
While it might seem that skipping the annual service call for your cooling system could save you money, that might be short-sighted. Having an HVAC technician check, clean and lubricant your system can actually save you money in the long run.
