Preventive Maintenance On Your A/C Always Pays Off In Summer

Summer is just ahead here in Yuma and that means it’s almost time for your air conditioner to get back to battling the Arizona heat. Before the temperatures get too high, make sure that your air conditioning unit is in proper working condition. You do not want to be left with an inefficient air conditioner when the hot summer months get here.

A professionally applied preventive maintenance check-up on your air conditioner will take into consideration the following factors:

  • Electrical Connections: Bad electrical connections in your air conditioning unit will result in the unsafe working condition of your A/C system and greatly reduce the life expectancy of your unit.
  • Thermostat Settings: Your thermostat settings should be evaluated to ensure that your air conditioner is running in the most efficient way possible. Some questions you may want to think about: Is your system set to run when you’re not at home? Is it set lower than necessary?
  • Condensate Drain: Clogged/plugged drains can have a negative impact on the humidity levels in your home. By having a preventive maintenance check-up on your A/C you will ensure that your humidity level stays in your home stay at an adequate level.
  • Lubrication: Certain parts of your air conditioning unit that aren’t properly lubricated can cause friction. Too much friction will raise the amount of energy your system needs to run efficiently.

  • Evaporator and Condenser A/C Coils: Air conditioner’s with dirty coils need more energy to run which will reduce the life of your system and raise your utility bills.
  • Blower Components: If your unit has airflow problems your system’s efficiency can be reduced by as much as 15%.
