End of Summer Maintenance for Your Air Conditioning Unit
Cooler days are approaching, and for most of us, that means shutting off the home’s air conditioning unit. But before you shut your system down, it would be a good idea to have a maintenance check. Santa Fe Air recommends that customers have a comprehensive maintenance check performed on their air conditioning unit yearly. We suggest that this maintenance be completed during the months of March and September (or during later months if weather permits).
If you haven’t already had a maintenance check completed on your system, now could be the perfect time to have your unit’s maintenance check. This yearly upkeep will help your unit get the most in energy efficiency, as well as more years of dependable service. Not only will servicing your air conditioning system help ensure the system’s longevity and efficiency, it is also an excellent tool to identify any issues or concerns that may have developed during the seasons of heavy use.
One of the important steps to maintaining a healthy system is to maintain a clean air filter. A dirty or clogged filter can hinder proper airflow and the unit’s overall efficiency. Although you may be capable of changing your own filter, other beneficial maintenance steps might require a professional HVAC contractor.
Our HVAC professionals will maintenance and clean your entire unit, with a comprehensive cooling check (included in our Quality Care Plans). This service will include over 50 steps (including, but not limited to): checking evaporator coils, motor bearings and fan blades, condenser unit and fins. Our check also includes inspection of the coolant lines and electrical cords for any signs of damage or areas of concern. These steps are all vital components in maintaining the cooling system of your home. It is also important to have such parts, as the coils and fins cleaned, as well as any debris from trees and shrubs removed from the unit.
