While spring and fall are ideal times to conduct maintenance on your air conditioning system, summer, too, can be a good time to ensure that it’s running properly.
Why is it important to schedule regular maintenance for your air conditioner? In a nutshell, regular maintenance can help you avoid costly repairs, save you money, make your air conditioner run more efficiently and increase its longevity. How? We’ll outline below what you can expect from air conditioning maintenance in Bellvue and why it’s important.
What Happens During Maintenance?
Three main things happen during a routine maintenance visit from your Fort Collins Heating & Air Conditioning specialist:
During a maintenance appointment, all aspects of your air conditioning system are thoroughly inspected for any current and/or potential problems. Items that are inspected include the different components in both the indoor and outdoor units, electrical connections, wiring, belts, ball bearings, coils, etc. The inspection allows your Fort Collins Heating & Air Conditioning specialist to see everything happening with your air conditioner and detect any possible problems.
It is normal for your system to accumulate a certain amount of dirt and dust, including debris like leaves, grass and twigs, particularly in the outside unit; what is unhealthy for your air conditioner is when these things aren’t removed. Debris can cause a number of problems if left unattended, including clogs, breakage and potential breakdown of the system. During a regular maintenance appointment, both the indoor and outdoor units are cleaned, including the coils. This cleaning can help save you money down the road by preventing repairs that can develop from having a dirty system.
Regular use of your air conditioner can cause screws to come loose, ball bearings to become dry, wires to fray, and other small issues. These items will be adjusted as needed during a routine maintenance appointment, preventing them from becoming bigger and potentially more costly problems.
