What little and relatively mild winter weather we have around here is fading into the distance. Sure, nighttime temperatures are still fairly chilly, but we’re also regularly hitting the 80s during the day—and that number is only going to keep climbing! The question is whether your air conditioner is going to be able to handle the hottest days of the summer that looms ahead. If you do not schedule your AC maintenance in Tucson, AZ before it arrives, then the answer is likely “no”.
Air conditioning maintenance is something that you’ve definitely seen us talking about if you have visited our site or this blog before. Why are we so ardent in covering this topic? Because routine AC maintenance is truly the best way in which to keep your air conditioner working at peak performance and efficiency levels. Considering just how hot it gets in our geographic region, your air conditioning performance is not something that you can afford to take chances with.
What Does Maintenance Actually Mean?
Some people don’t schedule maintenance because they don’t really understand just how important it really is for the overall success of their AC systems. Usually, this is due to the fact that they do not fully understand just how involved a process a thorough AC tune-up is. There are a few maintenance tasks that you can handle on your own, including changing your air filter as needed and cleaning off your outdoor unit. While these are definitely important steps to take, they are also just scratching the surface in terms of air conditioning maintenance.
During professional air conditioning maintenance, your system will be thoroughly cleaned—including the coils that allow for the removal of heat from the air in the first place. Your condensate drain line and pan will be cleaned, electrical contacts tightened and tested, controls tested, thermostat tested, moving parts lubricated, and much more. Simply put, this is not the type of job that anyone other than a skilled, trained professional could possibly hope to complete properly.
What Are the Benefits
The benefits of annual air conditioning maintenance can be easily broken down into 3 categories: efficiency, reliability, and performance quality.
When your system is tuned up by a professional technician, it is going to have an easier time in doing its job. That means that it will require less energy to do so. That means that you will be spending less money to cool your home.
Air conditioning maintenance is also going to help keep any repair needs as minimal as possible. Now, there is no such thing as a 100% reliable air conditioning system, and you are going to need repairs at some point. Maintenance is your best preventative measure, though, and it also gives our technicians a chance to catch any developing problems early on.
Finally, performance. The long and short of it is that we here at Goettl Air Conditioning Tucson want to ensure that you enjoy the very best performance that your AC has to offer. The best way to guarantee a top-notch cooling experience is, you guessed it: scheduling routine maintenance!
G-O-E-T-T-L it’ll keep you cool but it’s hard to spell.
