Time to Check the Status of Your A/C

air-conditioning-repairSummer has entered its last few weeks, and while temperatures remain high in the area, they’ll soon be cooling off, and our air conditioning use will give way to heating use before you know it. Now might be an excellent time to take a look at your air conditioner and see how the long summer has treated it. Qualified air conditioning services often offer maintenance plans for just such circumstances, giving your technician a chance to see how your system has held up over the long summer.

A Tune-Up

Maintenance sessions aren’t quite the same as repairs, which are intended to correct a specific problem with your system. Instead, they’re a more general look at the system: checking for little problems like loose bolts and clogged filters as well as signs that something more serious that may be coming down the pike. If any of those little things need correcting, the technician will take care of it during the course of the maintenance session. If something more serious is required, the technician will schedule a formal repair session in the near future.

The Benefits

There are two main benefits to conducting a maintenance session:

  1. Improved Efficiency. Tightening those bolts, greasing moving parts and conducting other little steps to address similar problems will improve the system’s efficiency. When you turn your air conditioner on next summer, it will likely perform without using quite so much energy, helping to cut down on high summer cooling bills next year. Doing so now means not having to worry about it over the break, which lets you start your system up as soon as the first warm day hits in the spring.
  2. An Early Jump on Repairs. If further repairs are needed, the sooner you can deal with it, the better. The long summer has likely put a strain on your system – especially older systems where the warranty has expired – and if there’s a breakdown or other serious problem coming, you want to be made aware of it sooner rather than later. It prevents any nasty surprises like unexpected shutdowns, which are common during the latter half of the summer. It also allows you to schedule a repair session at your leisure: during a time when you have nothing going on, instead of forcing you to rearrange your busy life to accommodate it.

Why Now?

With your system running for months on end, you may not yet be aware of any problems that may be brewing. If you leave your air conditioner unchecked over the winter, you could be in for a nasty surprise in the spring. Even in the event that further repairs aren’t required, regular maintenance can help reduce the effects of wear and tear on the system. When applied regularly over time it can extend the life of your air conditioner well beyond the warranty, providing months or even years of extra use for your system. Late summer and early fall makes an excellent time for regularly scheduled maintenance sessions.

During this very unusual time, we have put a plan in place to do our part to help keep our community safe. First and foremost, we are going to stay CALM, PATIENT, KIND, and POSITIVE!

There is much to consider regarding the COVID-19 virus (Coronavirus) and its possible transmission in your home. While there are various and effective indoor air quality measures available to help protect your safety, including duct sanitization, ultraviolet (UV) germicidal light treatment, and HEPA air filters, they alone cannot protect from all forms of COVID-19 transmission. It is important to follow all official guidelines for preventing the spread of this virus.

Because we have a direct impact on the indoor environment, here are practical steps we are going to take to keep people safe:

  • Wash our hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and water
  • Cover our nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing
  • Wash our uniforms every day including cleaning our belts
  • Stay home if we are feeling sick
  • Offer a warm smile and friendly greeting instead of a handshake
  • Wear shoe covers and latex gloves in homes and businesses
  • Wipe down surfaces and equipment touched in a client’s home with disinfectant wipes
  • Wipe down door handles, steering wheels, gear shift lever every day
  • Wipe down pens, clipboards, tablets, cell phones, and anything else passes between techs and clients.
  • We have masks on each truck and will wear them at client’s discretion (Currently the CDC does not recommend that people wear masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19)
  • We are complying with all recommendations and guidelines from state agencies and will be proactive in our efforts to see that our team members and clients are protected.

As the situation unfolds, we will take each day one at a time and ensure we are being smart, supportive, and helping all those we can in our community.

Thank you for your continued support!
