How Often Does Your Air Conditioner Need Preventive Maintenance?
All equipment becomes less effective over time, including the cooling system in your home. However, you can increase the longevity of your air conditioner and reduce or eliminate major repairs later by arranging preventive air conditioning services in West Palm Beach, FL.
How Often Should You Have Your Air Conditioner Maintained?
Ideally, you want to have a service technician from Pro-Star Air Conditioning come out at least once a year. We recommend scheduling your preventive maintenance appointment in the spring since we are busiest with these types of appointments during the summer months. You might want to consider scheduling bi-annual preventive maintenance if you have an older unit or you’re concerned about its efficiency.
What to Expect at Your Preventive Maintenance Appointment
Here are just some of the things our experienced service technicians work on during your air conditioner tune-up:
- Ensure it has the right amount of refrigerant with no leaks.
- Check belts for tightness and oil the motors.
- Inspect all electric terminals.
- Measure the current amount of airflow coming through the unit’s evaporator coils.
- Check for leaks in the central system and seal them if necessary.
This is just a partial list of our preventive maintenance services. Our technicians will always let you know if your air conditioner has a problem that requires additional maintenance.
Change Your Filters Quarterly to Maintain a Strong Air Flow
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, a clogged and dirty air filter can increase energy costs by as much as 15 percent. The reason for this is that air conditioners with a full filter must work harder to produce and distribute chilled air. The air that does come out distributes unevenly and is warmer than it should be.
Spring will be here before you know it. Please schedule an appointment for preventive air conditioning services in West Palm Beach, FL, today.
