Get Your A/C Ready for Summer With a Spring Tune Up

May 2, 2014

With the hot days of summer just around the corner, it’s time to make sure that your air conditioning system is up to par for the job of keeping you comfortably cool and dry. Spring is the ideal season to schedule A/C maintenance for your home or business, before the summer heat drives up the demand for emergency repairs and new system installations.

Benefits of Regular A/C Maintenance

Staying cool and comfortable during the summer might be your first priority, but preventative maintenance offers you additional benefits:

  • Energy Savings: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) studies have shown that well-maintained HVAC systems operate at up to 25 times better in terms of energy efficiency than neglected systems. Air conditioning costs make up the lion’s share of energy expenditures during the summer, but proper maintenance can significantly lower your monthly cooling bills.
  • A/C Repair Prevention: Each piece of equipment in your air conditioner was designed to work in synchronization with every other part. The system may continue to operate for a time with a malfunctioning component but will put a strain on the other components. Seasonal tune-ups give skilled HVAC technicians the opportunity to address potential problems before they lead to costly repairs.
  • Longer Service Life: Regular A/C maintenance extends the longevity of your cooling system, allowing you to postpone a replacement or new installation so that you’ll save money now and later.
  • Better Cooling Comfort: Poorly maintained cooling systems not only operate less efficiently but also less effectively. Whether it’s a faulty blower or a defective thermostat, any performance issues in an air conditioner affect the output and compromises your comfort.

Scheduled Maintenance Visits

The most convenient way to ensure that your A/C delivers top performance is to enroll in a preventative maintenance plan. When your air conditioner is maintained periodically with a full tune-up any possible issues can be discovered and fixed before summer arrives. A qualified HVAC technician will give the system a thorough checkup, which includes the following tasks:

  • Verifying operating temperatures
  • Checking refrigerant levels and pressures
  • Cleaning and adjusting blowers and fans
  • Inspecting controls and safety mechanisms
  • Lubricating moving parts and motors
  • Checking and cleaning condenser and evaporator coils
  • Cleaning and condensate pans and drains
  • Tightening electrical connections

With more than 50 years of experience, Berkeley Heating & Air Conditioning provides professional preventative maintenance programs that make it affordable and easy to keep your air conditioner running at optimal performance throughout the long summer season.
