If you were getting ready to run the Go! St. Louis Marathon, you wouldn’t start training the day before the marathon, would you? If you think of the hot Missouri summer as a marathon for your air conditioner, then training should start now, before the hot temperatures arrive!
As the heating, cooling, and home performance experts that have been serving the home comfort needs of St. Louis area homeowners for over 70 years, here are a few things we want you to know about scheduling regular AC repair and maintenance services before spring turns to summer.
Getting under the hood of your air conditioner includes checking and adjusting refrigerant levels, carefully measuring the electrical operation and components, as well as tightening and lubricating any screws or moving parts of your air conditioner. An energy efficient AC unit that is operating like a “fine tuned machine” will cost less to operate all the way through the hot and humid months.
As your SmartHouse maintenance technician locates and repairs any worn or failing parts in your air conditioner, the risk of an unexpected cooling emergency becomes lower and lower. Spending a little time, money, and energy to maintain your system now will save you lots of sweat (and cash) down the line, when it is much less convenient.
Not feeling ready to shell out the dough for full on AC replacement? Preventing unnecessary wear and tear on your air conditioning unit can extend the life expectancy of your equipment. This further adds to the return on investment of regular AC maintenance, on top of the energy savings you will see over the lifespan of your air conditioner.
When you’re trying to cool down your hot upstairs, and you head to the thermostat to drop the temperature settings on a blistering day in June, you don’t want to have to wait to feel that cool air coming out of the vents. If you have problem areas like a second floor that doesn’t cool, bring it to the attention of your SmartHouse technician and they can start the process of resolving your problem.
You don’t have to wait for your next scheduled service call to start preparing your cooling system for the long summer. There are things you can do yourself to help your AC run better. This includes:
