Keep Cool While the Grill is Hot
The unofficial kick off to summer happens long before the calendar marks the summer solstice in June. We all know when it’s time for BBQ’s, pool parties and outdoor festivities – Memorial Day. Of course, Memorial Day, which has a history dating back to the Civil War, is the time to honor our men and women who died in combat defending our great nation, and we will never forget to include it in our event-planning mindset. Memorial Day is also a time to gather with friends and family, so schedule AC service now to fully enjoy the first days leading up to a long summer full of sun and fun! Everything you need to know about your upcoming AC service:
- Be prepared for your service call. Before your HVAC technician arrives, there a few things you can do to expedite the visit. Start with cleaning any dirt, leaves and debris outside the main unit, then inspect the base pan for blocked drain openings. You can also take a look at the coil and cabinet noting any holes and leaks you may want to point out to your HVAC technician. You can inspect the fan blades while they’re in motion and stationary to determine wear and damage. You may also need to clean the control box if debris has accumulated there.
- Keep note of recommended maintenance intervals. Your specific unit will have a recommended maintenance intervals, and adhering to these ranges will keep your warranty intact as well as ensure your unit is functioning at optimal levels. Generally speaking, your heating and AC units both will require at least one maintenance visit (each) per year – your heating unit in early fall and your AC service in spring or early summer.
- Choose a credentialed and well-known HVAC service provider. It’s important to choose a reliable and highly knowledgeable HVAC service provider to assist you in keeping your HVAC units running at peak efficiency this summer and all year-round. When looking for a reputable HVAC partner, be sure to check out their years in business, certifications such as NATE (North American Technician Excellence) as well as 24/7 availability for when emergencies occur after hours.
