Don’t skip your ac tune-up this spring

Posted on: March 9, 2016

It’s that time of year again—the temperatures are rising, your heavy coats are being packed away, and you’re probably getting ready to turn on your trusted air conditioner again. With summer right around the corner, it would be an understatement to say that your AC unit is a vital component to the comfort in your Gaithersburg home. If you haven’t thought about getting a professional AC tune-up yet, it’s time to give James A. Wheat & Sons a call and schedule an appointment today!

Keep reading to learn why scheduling an air conditioner tune-up or maintenance visit with James A. Wheat & Sons can make your Maryland summer cool, comfortable, and worry-free.

What happens without routine AC inspection?

When your unit is left untouched during the winter season, there’s a good chance that a layer of dirt, grease, and dust will layer on the working parts, making your air conditioner inefficient and unsafe. Worse yet, rodents, mice, and insects may wind up in your unit, causing some serious damage!

Good news—these problems are avoidable with a routine tune-up!

Typically, a professional inspection includes:

  • Performing a comprehensive system check. We want to make sure your unit runs at peak efficiency.
  • Cleaning all of the filters and different sections.
  • Inspecting all moving parts.
  • Testing your cooling. We will ensure that your unit runs safely while improving the comfort in your home.

These inspections will leave your air conditioner ready to run smoothly all summer long, likely not needing surprise repair or maintenance!

Why ac tune-ups are important

A tune-up ensures that your unit will run as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Whether it be a dirty system or a poorly lubricated motor, if you neglect your air conditioner, it could overheat, leaving you with both a system breakdown and a costly repair bill.

Your home will not receive the cooling and dehumidification that you depend on if your unit has a low coolant level.  By simply scheduling a routine inspection with James A. Wheat & Sons, you will not only take preventative measures against potential problems, but your air conditioner will likely have fewer issues in the future, which saves you money!

There are many benefits to a professional AC tune-up, including:

  • Better system performance
  • Cleaner indoor air
  • Removal of unwanted elements in unit
  • Prevention of costly system failures
  • Extended equipment lifespan

A simple check up on your unit could have a huge impact on the way you and your family enjoy your home this summer.
