a-c service new hampshireWhile summer is still a ways off here in the Seacoast region, it’s getting closer. Now is the time to make sure that your home’s air conditioning system is ready for it by getting it its annual maintenance tune-up from P. Gagnon & Son.

As the heating season is largely done and it’s not A/C season yet, it will be easy for you to schedule your maintenance tune-up at a time it’s most convenient for you. No matter when the first heat wave hits, your home’s air conditioning system will be ready to go!

A/C Maintenance Is Essential

You wouldn’t drive your car for years without getting the oil and filter changed or a tune-up, would you? Not having an annual maintenance tune-up is the same thing for your home’s air conditioning system.

Your air conditioning worked hard last summer. Then it sat unused all winter. It needs some TLC before you put it to work this year.

A professional A/C maintenance tune-up from P. Gagnon makes sure that your air conditioning system is in good working order and will run at peak efficiency. That means your air conditioning energy costs will be as low as possible for keeping your home cook and comfortable.

The maintenance tune-up also gives our service technicians an opportunity to thoroughly inspect your air conditioning system so they can spot problems and fix them before they lead to breakdowns and bigger repair bills.

Another reason for annual maintenance: Most A/C manufacturers require annual professional maintenance for the warranty to remain valid. You don’t do that, your warranty may not cover any repairs down the road.

Do Your Part To Take Care Of Your A/C

A full maintenance tune-up is not a DIY project. It requires professional training, tools, and experience. However, there are some things you can do ahead of your maintenance tune-up.

  • Clear away obstructions. Remove sticks, leaves, and other debris from around your outdoor unit.
  • Test the A/C system. Run the air conditioning system for 20 minutes. Pay close attention to how it operates. Take notes and let our service technician know what you observed.
  • Update your thermostat. If you have an older manual thermostat, we can upgrade you to a programmable thermostat. These can help your air conditioning run more efficiently and cut your cooling costs by up to 10%!
