Pollen is in the air, birds are singing, flowers and trees are budding. What does that mean? Spring has sprung! What’s more, not only is spring here, but it also means that summer is on its way, and soon we will be flipping the “on” switch of our air conditioners!
While many people don’t necessarily start thinking about air conditioning at the beginning of the spring season, it’s an excellent time to reach out to a heating and air conditioning company. Why? Well, just like you might be doing some “spring cleaning” around your home, it’s time to give your AC unit its “spring checkup.” Scheduling a spring checkup for your AC unit will not only make sure that your home is adequately cooled in the summer, but it will make sure every component of your unit or system is in working order.
Your home’s cooling system has a variety of complex components that our technicians will check closely. Even though some things can be checked and changed (if needed) by you, a thorough checkup should be left to a professional. After all, the last thing you need is to discover that you turned an easy fix or replacement into a significant and costly issue!
If you would like to get a sense of whether or not your AC system might need some maintenance as you wait for the technician to arrive, here are a few things you should look for:
- Signs of overheating.
- Moisture and/or water stains on the equipment.
- Improperly sealed, loose, or hanging ducts.
- Corrosion or rust.
When one of our technicians comes out to your home, he or she will do a visual inspection, test electrical components, the cooling components themselves, coolant levels, and much more. In all, you should expect nothing less than a thorough inspection because, just like you, we want to ensure that your air conditioning works the best when you need it!
Here at Hutchinson, we have served as an air conditioning service company in Burlington County, Camden County, Gloucester County, NJ, Philadelphia, PA, and many other surrounding areas for decades. If you want a spring checkup you can count on, we are just a phone call or email away!
