Summer is fast approaching and that means that it’s time to get your air conditioner in tip-top shape. To prepare for the summer, and the hotter temperatures that come with it, a seasonal service for your AC system will save you money and headaches down the road. Now is the time to schedule service for your AC system.
Ask yourself, when was the last time you paid attention to your air conditioner? We certainly take for granted the work that your AC unit puts in to keep you cool and comfortable, but to make sure that your unit is primed and ready for this job, give your air conditioner system a tune-up now so that you enjoy the benefits later.
One of the most important maintenance steps is to change the filter regularly. This boosts the airflow and enhances the air conditioner’s overall performance. It also helps maintain clean air and eliminates dirt, debris, and allergens that can impact your health and comfort.
Another important service area of your AC system includes checking the refrigerant level, as low levels can lead to inefficient operation. And if the refrigerant level is consistently low, it could indicate a leak or other issue that requires additional servicing.
Professional air conditioning companies perform several crucial services that can keep your air conditioner running smoothly so that your AC is ready to run without any problems later.
Services Performed By Copperline Heating and Air Conditioning for service for your AC System
We provide a comprehensive array of services that ensure our customer’s air conditioning is running smoothly when they need it. These services include:
- Checking Levels of Refrigerant Gas
Refrigerant gas is the chemical compound that works in the air conditioner to absorb heat and create cool air.
- Inspecting the Fan Motor
Signs that your fan motor could use service include rattling noises when the fan is turned on, slowly rotating fan blades or the fan won’t turn on or off.
- Testing the AC’s Thermostat
A failing thermostat on your air conditioner can impede its ability to operate at the ideally desired temperature, and could also cause you to burn more electricity than is desirable to run your air conditioner.
- Checking the Unit’s Condenser
A small amount of condensation is normal with the operating of an air conditioner, but should you notice excessive leaking from the unit that could be a sign that the condenser needs to be serviced or replaced. Another sign that the condenser may not be operating optimally is if you notice your AC just doesn’t keep you cool the way that it used to. Any unfamiliar sounds or loud noises coming from the unit as you operate it could also signal condenser issues.
- Inspecting the Compressor
Problems with the functioning of the compressor on your air conditioner could result in poor airflow quality, if not a lack of ability to produce and blow out cool air altogether. If your air conditioner doesn’t turn on or is making strange and unfamiliar noises (typically rattling or clunking sounds) that could signal an electric problem related to the compressor.
