Hammond Air Conditioning Maintenance
We see it all the time: a homeowner puts off air conditioning maintenance because they think their AC is running fine, but then the system breaks down under the stress of summer heat. And as all Hammond and Covington, LA residents know, getting stuck without AC in the heat of summer is not fun for anyone involved.
With AC maintenance from Foulks Southern Air Heating and Cooling, however, you can avoid that annoying breakdown and ensure that your AC system runs smoothly all summer long. That’s right — taking care of your air conditioner is as easy as scheduling an AC unit tune-up.
Call on Foulks Southern Air for more information or to schedule your next air conditioning tune-up today!
What Is an AC Tune-Up?
Also known as preventative maintenance or seasonal tune-ups, AC maintenance is an important opportunity for an industry expert to evaluate your system. While air conditioners are designed to run on their own with very little interference, that doesn’t mean they can run for a decade with no maintenance. When a qualified AC technician has the chance to assess both the function and efficiency of your unit, your entire air circulation system stays healthier and more dependable.
When to Schedule AC Maintenance
A tune-up at any time of the year is better than no tune-up at all, but air conditioning maintenance should ideally be scheduled every year during the spring before it gets too hot outside. Likewise, a heater tune-up should be scheduled in the fall before it gets too cold. Scheduling your air conditioner maintenance before summer gives a professional air conditioning technician a chance to inspect and clean your system as well as notify you of any AC repairs before a heatwave hits and causes a breakdown. If your unit heads into summer with a performance boost and no issues, it can take on anything summer throws at it.
Why Is Seasonal Maintenance So Important?
We know what you’re thinking. Do I really need to spend extra money to have my AC ‘looked at’ when nothing is wrong? The answer is yes! Preventive maintenance on your air conditioner is as important as changing the oil in your car or going to the doctor for a wellness check. You may not think you need it, but this attention keeps the system running healthier for longer. Plus, it is a prime opportunity for experts to identify looming problems that haven’t caused major breakdowns yet.
*If going to the doctor for a wellness checkup revealed you were sick, wouldn’t you be glad you went?
Our Hammond Air Conditioning Maintenance Process
Every AC company completes its maintenance differently, but you can count on our team to be thorough and focused. We’re also dedicated to being as transparent as possible when it comes to what our team actually does for your air conditioner.
Our technicians begin with a comprehensive list of pieces and parts they need to evaluate. This includes the inner components of the unit such as mechanical and electrical parts. It’s important that all the inner mechanisms that you don’t usually see are tested for proper function. As the technicians make their way through the detailed list, they grade each component as functioning, in need of repair or broken.
Recommend Necessary Repairs
With the information they gather during their visit, the technicians will produce a report on the status of your unit. This report will include any recommendations our team encourages you to choose, such as repairs or changes that need to be made. We’re here to serve you, so you can trust that our recommendations are honest and that our technicians are more than happy to talk you through their findings.
Before the technicians leave, they’ll be sure to assess your comfort inside the home as well. Even if nothing is necessarily wrong with your unit, adjustments and tweaks can be made to provide more airflow, more accurate temperatures and more comfort in general. This is also the perfect time for you to express any concerns you may have about your AC. If you’ve noticed abnormal signs from your AC like odors or noises, our technicians are happy to address them at that time.
Benefits of Regular Air Conditioner Maintenance
Some homeowners wonder whether AC tune-ups have real benefits, and the answer is always a resounding yes! While an individual tune-up provides an efficiency boost for the upcoming cooling season, regular air conditioner maintenance over time also offers several long-term advantages that you won’t want to miss. Benefits of scheduling annual tune-ups include:
- Reduced the risk of breakdowns
- Increased system efficiency
- Extending the life of the system
- Lower energy bills
- Catching unnoticed issues
You heard that right! Keeping a regular maintenance schedule throughout your air conditioner’s life can actually keep it running better for longer. Between keeping your AC running efficiently and preventing the wear and tear caused by frequent breakdowns, regular tune-ups can delay the cost of investing in a new system by years in some cases.
