Maintenance plans are a great way to ensure indoor comfort all summer long. Most homeowners are aware of the importance of seasonal inspections, but often they don’t remember to schedule an appointment. Forgetting about the health of your air conditioner until it’s too late to prevent a failure can make life miserable. Thankfully, your local AC technician can send you a reminder and schedule an appointment at the right time of the year.

Are You Confident About Your Air Conditioner?

It has been at least six months since you turned on your air conditioner. Is it in good condition? A trouble-free shutdown is a good thing, but this doesn’t mean a problem isn’t hiding inside your equipment. Winter weather can damage compressors that aren’t covered up and protected. Systems that have attic, basement or exterior wall components can suffer, too. A little TLC in the spring can put a stop to lurking issues.

Maintenance Reduces Summer Breakdowns

There are lots of reasons to have your equipment checked by a professional technician. A skilled technician can spot looming problems that look normal to you. An experienced technician can also save you from an unwanted emergency. The licensed and certified technicians at McKinney Heating & Air Conditioning can provide reliable AC inspections and tune-ups for property owners in Martinsville.

Industry standard maintenance visits are usually an hour to an hour-and-a-half long. They include a:

  • Filter replacement: Ensures optimal air quality and system efficiency by removing and replacing dirty or clogged filters.
  • Full inspection: A comprehensive check of all system components, including electrical connections, thermostat settings, and safety controls, to ensure everything is operating correctly.
  • System cleaning: Thorough cleaning of critical parts such as coils, blower components, and condensate drains to improve efficiency and prevent potential issues like mold growth or clogs.
  • System status report: A detailed report on the current state of the system, highlighting any concerns, recommendations for repairs or upgrades, and an overview of the maintenance performed.

Regular Spring Checkups Are Key

Once the ice begins to melt, you’ll know it’s time to schedule. Waiting until the first day of hot weather to make the appointment means you could be waiting a while. That’s because AC breakdowns are happening all over town, and air conditioning companies are very busy handling repairs. Spring is the best time to schedule your AC maintenance.
