Give Your Cooling Equipment Annual Service, Get Peace Of Mind

It’s time for Yuma area homeowners to get the jump on the annual service of air conditioning systems.  Don’t wait until that first uncomfortably warm evening to turn on your A/C unit only to find that it’s not blowing cold air.  A system that is properly tuned and serviced prior to peak cooling season will also use less energy which can save a lot of money over the course of the summer.

Annual service and preventive maintenance will ensure that your system is ready when you need it and reduce the likelihood of a breakdown when it’s running.  What type of preventive maintenance needs to be done to ensure your air conditioning system is operating at peak performance and efficiency?

The U.S. Department of Energy recommends the following:

  • Replace the air filters – this is the most important (and easy) maintenance item to ensure overall system efficiency.
  • Replace worn belts on the blower unit.
  • Clean the condensate drip pan and piping – a blocked condensate drain can lead to damage to your system and your home
  • Clean the blower housing and evaporator coils for better heat transfer.
  • Clean the outdoor condensing unit coils for optimum performance of the cooling system.
  • Lubricate all indoor and outdoor fan motors to reduce heat and wear.
  • Check the refrigerant charge to ensure proper system pressures and most efficient operation.

A ‘Service Agreement’ with the professionals at Hansberger includes scheduled inspections and preventive maintenance on central air systems. A Service Agreement saves you money on the cost of service and can make the difference between relaxing in a cool home, and sweating out the hot weather months because the system breaks down.
