Roanoke residents have spent a lot of time at home this spring, but at least we’ve had air conditioning to make it more bearable as the temps have been rising.
Can you imagine what it would be like to be stuck at home without AC? Having your HVAC unit break down in the middle of sheltering at home isn’t the happiest scenario. But for some people, it wasn’t hypothetical at all as their old, inefficient air conditioning systems bit the dust when they needed it the most.
The Roanoke air conditioning experts at Southern Trust Home Services are happy to help if you have an HVAC emergency, but we’d suggest you consider giving your AC a little preventative maintenance to avoid the hassle.
Our service experts can tune-up your AC to keep it humming along during the summer heat. They can also spot and correct little problems with the system before they become big problems down the road.
During an HVAC tune-up, our service experts will:
- Clean the coils.
- Check coolant levels.
- Inspect the wiring and electrical components.
- Calibrate the thermostat.
- Inspect and/or change the air filter.
- Clean out condensate trays or drains.
- Inspect the motor assembly.
Protect Your HVAC System
Scheduling a tune-up at least once a year will help keep your AC running at full capacity. It won’t just protect the mechanical systems, though. It will protect your bank account. You might not realize it, but your HVAC warranty probably requires annual maintenance. Neglect that and the manufacturer can and will void your warranty, leaving you without financial protection if the HVAC unit breaks down.
Even without that consideration, neglecting your HVAC system will mean higher cooling bills as it wears out and grows inefficient. It won’t last as long, either, meaning you’ll have to replace it years before that should be necessary.
