How to Best Avoid Midsummer AC Problems

avoid-midsummer-ac-problemsWe may still be experiencing cooler temperatures, and in fact most of the year in the Seattle area can be considered the “heating season.” But that doesn’t mean that when summer weather does hit that we want to be stuck with a broken down air conditioner. Imagine being in the middle of a heat wave when your cooling system breaks down.

Midsummer air conditioning repairs are nothing short of a hassle. Surely, you’d rather take preventative measures to reduce the chance that this will happen at all. The main preventive measure you can take is to invest in Seattle, WA air conditioning maintenance.

Schedule Your Air Conditioner Maintenance ASAP

Preventing the worst of air conditioning repairs is easy when you let our professionals care for your cooling system early on in the cooling season. This way, you can discover if there are any problems with your system and take care of them now, and you get a system tune-up that can help keep your AC running as efficiently as possible for as long as possible.

Professional air conditioning maintenance includes a few important steps:

  • Complete System Inspection: During this service, our technicians will take a close look at the inside and outside components of your air conditioner and run performance tests to reveal any components that are wearing down, as well as those that may be in need of repair or replacement. They will let you know the condition of your cooling system so you can decide whether to schedule follow-up services, and when to do so.
  • Comprehensive Cleaning: There are a number of areas within your air conditioner that need to stay clean. Debris in the blower motor, for instance, can eventually cause the motor to jam. Also, the outside unit of your AC contains a coil that collects a lot of dust and dirt over the years, and cleaning it helps prevent many performance issues that can crop up.
  • Adjustments: Making even just a couple adjustments here and there can improve the state of your air conditioning system and help prevent a seemingly minor issue from growing into a much larger emergency.

One of the benefits of scheduling this service now versus waiting until the weather gets warmer is that our technicians will have greater availability to assist you—rather than being out on emergency service calls.

Plus, it’s far less of a hassle to go without air conditioning for a couple hours during the spring while maintenance is done than to go an entire summer day without AC because your system broke down!

Gain Peace of Mind with Regular Maintenance

AC maintenance helps prevent many different types of air conditioning repairs, and also gives you a peace of mind that your system is much more likely to run smoothly for longer, particularly if you schedule regular appointments every year. Keeping up on your AC tune-ups will help your system perform better and will save you money on energy costs.
