As the end of summer draws near, you might think there’s no need to have your cooling system serviced because it will soon be dormant for the winter. But preventive maintenance shouldn’t be ignored — it’s never too late to prevent damage or breakdowns.
No matter how old or new, no matter how frequently or seldom used, your cooling equipment, your home, and your pocketbook will benefit with:
- Longer equipment lifespan
- Fewer breakdowns
- Increased performance
- Higher energy efficiency
- Quieter operation
Preventive maintenance for HVAC equipment is much like that for a vehicle or any other mechanical system; fluid levels are checked, moving parts lubricated, vital components cleaned. This ensures optimal operation during the cooling season and protects parts while the system is not in use.
For your cooling system, preventive maintenance includes:
- Clean or replacing filters
- Check evaporator coil and drain
- Tighten and clean electrical connections
- Lubricate motors
- Monitor fluid levels
- Calibrate thermostats
- Check fans
- Evaluate safety controls
For all your HVAC equipment, maintenance is inexpensive and by far the most effective way to keep everything running smoothly for a long time, plus catch any minor problems before they turn into costly and inconvenient emergency repairs.
It’s also the ideal time to have your heating system tuned up and ready for the quickly approaching winter months.
Save money, time and hassle with preventive maintenance–while increasing comfort and confidence that your HVAC systems are in good shape and ready for whatever the seasons bring.
