Warm Days Are Coming – Schedule A/C Maintenance Today!

Indoor A/C

Posted: May 25, 2018

Slowly but surely, temperatures are creeping up here in southern New Hampshire and Maine – and before you know it, it will be time to close the windows and escape from the damp, sticky New England summer heat.

The question is will your A/C be ready for the challenge when that day arrives?

It will – if you keep up with your routine A/C maintenance.

The time to do your annual air conditioning maintenance is not during July or August, when you desperately need to cool your house during a heat wave – it’s now, while there’s still time to adjust if you run into an unexpected issue with your home cooling system.

Keep up with your home cooling system properly maintained and you will:

  • Save on cooling bills by keeping your system running as efficiently as possible (a tune-up will often pay for itself by preventing efficiency loss).
  • Have greater peace of mind knowing that your cooling system will run more reliably in any weather.
  • Preserve any warrantees that require annual maintenance.
  • Spot problems early, before they become expensive repairs (nearly 80 percent of air conditioner repairs are avoidable with proper ongoing maintenance).

Your air conditioning system is one of the biggest home comfort investments you’ll make in your home – it pays to protect it with proper maintenance. Schedule yours today!

Three things you can do to prepare for your A/C tune-up

Although air conditioner maintenance is not a DIY project you can still get ahead of the game by doing these three things in advance of our tune-up appointment:

  1. Clear obstructions around the outdoor compressor unit – Remove sticks, leaves, and other debris that accumulated over the winter.
  2. Briefly run your AC unit – Check for easily identifiable problems, and listen to your compressor for obvious knocks and pings.
  3. Check your ductwork – Look for visible cracks and leaks and consider duct sealing to further improve efficiency and lower home energy bills.
