Every year when the summer heat skyrockets, air conditioning systems throughout the Atlanta area falter or shut down. At ClimateSmith, LLC, our phones begin ringing non-stop as our customers are wilting in the sweltering heat without AC in their home. The best way to avoid this situation is with preventive maintenance. Now is the time to schedule a tune-up for your air conditioning unit to reduce the risk of a break down this summer.
When Is the Last Time Your AC Had a Tune-Up?
Just like most mechanical devices, AC units need maintenance to work efficiently. Your vehicle needs oil, plug and filter changes, and your AC system needs similar tune-ups. Ideally, you should have an AC tune-up annually to check all the components and replace filters and other elements as needed. Not only will this make your AC unit last longer and run more efficiently, but it could prevent an unnecessary break down when you least expect it.
Air Conditioning Inspections and Tune-Ups
Spring is the best time to have your AC system inspected and any repairs made. This ensures it is in top condition before heavy use begins in summer. Our team at ClimateSmith, LLC perform full-service inspections for AC units and heat pumps. Our inspections include checking the thermostat, contactor, relays, fuses, condensate drain, pump, and temperature drop. We also check the refrigerant pressures and amperage of the outdoor fan and compressor. Our technician will clean the condenser coil and replace the air filter.
Once the complete inspection is done, our trained tech will discuss any components that are showing wear. If any parts need replacement, it is best to complete these proactively to avoid air conditioning problems down the road. If your unit is over 10 years old and has significant problems, it may be best to replace the unit versus repair.
No one wants to have an AC shutdown when the temperatures reach the triple digits. Call ClimateSmith, LLC now to schedule your AC tune-up for preventive maintenance in the Alpharetta, GA area.
