Time to Service Your Air Conditioning Unit
Living in Phoenix AZ is such an amazing privilege. We are surrounded by mountains, lush desert landscape, and enjoy beautiful temperatures for seven months out of the year. The others five months however can be pretty brutal.
If you’ve lived in Phoenix you know how hot it gets toward the middle of May and continues on through the middle of October. Temperatures can get as hot as 112 degrees on any given summer day and with all the building in the valley, the heat index continues to climb each year. That’s why it’s very important to have your air conditioning unit serviced once a year to make sure it is in perfect working condition.
With having to run our AC units pretty much all day throughout our hot Phoenix summers, it’s crucial to make sure that your system is ready to start another hot season in perfect condition. You may not know it, but lasts year’s summer may have taken a little tole on your air conditioner.
Here are a couple areas that our professional team will check out to make sure your AC unit is ready for operation when those hot temps hit:
1) We look at the moving parts to make sure they are lubricated properly to help avoid friction and reduce the amount of energy that is required for it to function.
2) Our team will make sure all controls are operating properly and will tighten all of the connections.
3) The setting of your thermostat will be evaluated to ensure they are set to temperatures you prefer when you are home and set to the correct energy saving temps when you are gone.
4) It’s also important to check the condensation drain to make sure it’s not clogged.
These are just a few important areas that are a part of our air conditioning maintenance check list. When a member of our team comes to inspect your AC unit, they will go over the complete list with you. You don’t want to have your cooling system break down on you in the middle of the summer.
