Is Your Air Conditioning Ready for the Heat?

Southern California weather may be the envy of much of the rest of the country, but our summers are nothing to take lightly. Air conditioners undergo heavy workouts during the lengthy hot season, with days ranging from warm to scorching. Your home’s central AC will likely run every day for the majority of the summer, so it is very important to make sure that the system is ready for that significant workload. You don’t want to deal with an ineffective air conditioner, expensive repairs, or “worst case scenario” total system breakdown during the hottest days of the years.

Spring maintenance is the key to summer readiness

Although you can take a few basic steps on your own to see that an AC is ready for summer, such as changing the air filter and paying close attention to odd noises from the cabinet when you first turn it on, the most important part of preparing residential air conditioning for the rigors of hot weather is to arrange for a spring maintenance visit from an HVAC professional. This maintenance provides an AC with an inspection and tune-up that will reduce wear and tear on the unit, locate any hidden repair issues, and make adjustments that will keep the system running at its most energy efficient.

During maintenance, the technician cleans the important components of the AC, such as the coils and the motors, to see that they present the lowest risk possible of failing in the next few months. If the technician notices places where aging components or excess strain is leading to a future malfunction, he or she will bring your attention to it so you can arrange for the necessary repair work before the AC starts its regular summer schedule. The technician also checks that the air filter is clean and there are no other airflow issues that will place undue strain on the system.

Once the maintenance session is over, you’ll have an air conditioner that should present you with few to no troubles over the summer. Although there’s no way to avoid all repair needs in an air conditioner, maintenance can prevent around 85% of them.
