Final Countdown: End of Season AC Services
Posted on: November 19, 2014
Congratulations! You’ve made it through summer without needing professional air conditioning services—but the year isn’t over yet! In fact, with the worst of the heat behind us, now is the best time to have your AC checked by a licensed technician. Living in the St. Petersburg area means we still have to run the AC throughout the winter, just not nearly as often and aggressively as we did during the summer. Because it was used so often over the past few months, now is the ideal time to have your AC inspected.
You may think that, since you won’t be needing it as much, having it serviced can be put off until next season. But any undetected wear, tear, or minor damage caused by heavy summer usage will only grow worse over the winter. A quick check up can save you from needing costly air conditioning services when the temperature gets hot again and you need it most.
Air Conditioning Services That Can Benefit You This Winter
If you’re lucky, you might not need any professional maintenance on your St. Petersburg system, but it’s good to know where you stand. Here are just some of the things we look for during a checkup:
- Air filter change – This should be done every 30 to 90 days.
- Duct cleaning – How clean is the air you’re breathing? If dust or mold is building inside your vents, it’s bypassing your filters and coming straight into your home.
- Duct sealing – Over time, tiny holes and tears can occur in your ventilation system, which allows contaminants in and cold air out.
- Part inspection – For all of our air conditioning services, our technicians will perform a point by point inspection of your system to identify any signs of wear, and catch potential problems before they become costly repairs.
- Refrigerant levels – Too little or too much can negatively affect performance.
- Thermostat accuracy – 1 or 2 degrees off might not seem like much, but it can mean a big difference on your electric bill!
You rely on your HVAC system to keep you cool during the summer and warm during the winter, not to mention how heavily you rely on it to keep the air your family breathes in safe and clean. So after all the hard work you put it through in order to stay cool this past summer, your system deserves a bit of pampering, don’t you think?
