One of the most important things a homeowner can do to keep their home air conditioning running at peak performance is to conduct regular maintenance on the system. Not only does proactive maintenance allow the system to keep you cool in the summer, it also helps prolong the life of the unit.
Some Arizona air conditioning service and maintenance items are easy do-it-yourself tasks a homeowner can do. But there are other, more involved steps that a professional should provide.
It’s recommended that homeowners have a professional perform air conditioning system maintenance twice a year. These checks allow for minor issues to be diagnosed and resolved before they can cause a problem during extreme weather.
A springtime check-up is timely because it allows the system to be ready for the hot summer. A spring service should include such things as checking the level of refrigerant in the system, cleaning the condenser coil, measuring the performance of the electrical motor and checking the air flow.
A check-up in the fall is timed to make sure the system is in prime working order for the cool winter. In the fall, the maintenance provider will do things such as inspecting and adjusting the belts, checking that the air vents are clear, lubricating the motors, adjusting the thermostat calibration and making sure the air temperature readings are correct.
Many homeowners find benefits to signing up for an annual maintenance plan. Chas Roberts Air Conditioning & Plumbing’s Comfort Assurance Plan (CAP) keeps Arizona air conditioning systems working efficiently year-round. The CAP provides two planned check-ups during the year – in spring and fall.
