We introduced you to the idea of AC maintenance and its importance in our previous blog post—getting this service on your schedule once a year helps to ensure your air conditioner works as well as it was designed to, for as long as it was meant to.
It’s easy to get started with maintenance, too—just give us a call! We’re happy to discuss with you the benefits of our time-saving and cost-saving maintenance plan.
In the meantime though, we really want to stress why exactly maintenance matters so much. We listed some benefits in that blog post a couple of weeks ago, and we also talked about what happens during maintenance—our technicians thoroughly inspect the system, making necessary adjustments and alerting you to repair needs.
True, summer is just about officially here—just a few more days. But does that mean it’s too late to schedule your maintenance tune-up if you haven’t done so already? Of course not! Unless your air conditioner is completely broken down and cannot be repaired, it’s never too late for professional maintenance.
Of course, it does matter how often you have your tune-ups done. If it’s been over a year since
your cooling system has been maintained, you certainly shouldn’t wait any
longer. And if you have a heat pump system, that means it gets year-round use,
and therefore needs year-round care—in this case, two maintenance visits a
year. Regardless of the type of air conditioner you use, regular maintenance is
vital for your system for the following reasons:
In Anaheim, we rely on our air conditioners to function day
after day, season after season—sometimes even on an almost year-round basis.
Your air conditioner protects you, keeps you comfortable, and combined with the right indoor air quality products, helps you breathe easier. It’s reliable and efficient without creating unexpected spikes in energy costs. At least, that’s the case if you worked with a trained and experienced technician to install the system and follow that up with thorough maintenance and repairs.
When you hire someone to do any type of work within your
home—not just on your HVAC system, you want to make sure it’s a professional you
can trust. But, how can you ensure this is the case?
By doing your research! Below we’ve shared just a few qualities you should look out for in a home services professional.
The one thing you can always count on in the spring season
is unpredictable temperatures—the beginning of May, for instance, can be as
high as 90° outside or, as last week showed us, as low as 60° during the day.
The temperature isn’t the only contributor to our comfort
this season, though. The constant switch between dewy and wet conditions to dry
conditions can wreak havoc for allergy sufferers. And while there’s nothing you
can do about this outside, there is
absolutely a way to tackle it indoors. How so? Read on to find out!
Although this will probably exist someday in the future, we do not yet have air conditioners that can self-diagnose problems and malfunctions to report back to the homeowner. However, AC systems do have other ways of alerting us to trouble. There may be a drop in cooling power or a sudden spike in electrical costs, and maybe even frequently tripping circuit breakers.
One of the best ways to determine that your cooling system needs professional air conditioning repair is to listen for unusual sounds coming from it. Anything different from the hum of the fans and compressors, or the occasional clicking as the system comes on and shuts down, might be telling you of a malfunction. We’d discourage you from trying to investigate these problems on your own, for your safety and to prevent further damage to the system. We’re happy to share with you some of the common warning signs you should keep an ear out for:
Springtime is officially here, and although we’re still
experiencing cooler-than-usual temperatures here in Orange County, you might
have used your air conditioner already for those couple of warm days we had
last week. Soon enough, you’ll be using it on a daily basis, and when that
happens you’ll want it to perform to the best of its ability. The last thing
you need, after all, is a sudden breakdown right when temperatures hit their
The good news is, the signs that you need air conditioning repair in Anaheim, CA are usually pretty apparent. We don’t, however, recommend that you try to formally diagnose or repair a malfunctioning air conditioner yourself, as this can be potentially dangerous and your air conditioner could end up with more harm being done to it than good. But you can definitely still spot the signs that you need air conditioning repair, and take the appropriate measures to call in the pros.
There’s a common question we get in the HVAC industry, and
that’s how homeowners can improve their air conditioner’s efficiency in order
to lower their energy bills. Considering how uncomfortably warm it can get in
the summer, it’s only natural that you may be one of the homeowners wondering
There are actually a number of services as well as general
tips that will help with this. For instance, routine preventive maintenance will
help you avoid major repair needs and lower your bills as a result. There are
also indoor air quality products, such as a dehumidifier, and HVAC products
that will help improve efficiency. Read on to learn more.
When you hear a recommendation to have air conditioning
maintenance done, we understand it can be an easy suggestion to dismiss. Unless
something is clearly wrong with your air conditioner—for instance if you’re not
getting any cooling on one of the hottest days of the year—you’d likely put off
calling in a pro, particularly if things worked “just fine” last season. And
yet, similar to maintenance for your vehicle, routine air conditioning and
heating maintenance is so important for repair prevention.
As specialists in the HVAC industry, we feel it’s our
responsibility to tell you why routine maintenance is so vital to your air
conditioner. For more information, reach out to our team and schedule your HVAC
maintenance with us ASAP.
If you live in the Anaheim area, we hope you already have a
whole-house air conditioner in place. While window or portable units are better
than nothing, they simply cannot provide you with fully effective and efficient
cooling that you and your wallet deserve. If you are still relying on portable cooling systems, be sure to reach out
to our team to learn what your AC options are.
We know the current temperatures have you reaching for blankets
and sweatshirts, but when spring comes, you’ll be thankful for a central air
conditioner. If you already have a centralized air conditioner in place but are
wondering if it’s still up to the task of affordably keeping you comfortable,
read on! We’ve gone over some signs below that indicate your current air
conditioner is about ready for an upgrade.
