Have A Service Tech Check Out Your AC

With summer coming, you want to make sure that your AC is going to work and keep your house nice and cool during the hottest days. The best way to do that is to call an HVAC service to schedule a checkup of your system. There are several things that the HVAC service will look at.

Coolant Check

One of the things that the service tech will check is the coolant levels in your AC. The coolant helps to make sure that the air that is being blown into your house is nice and cool. The coolant system is supposed to be a closed system, but sometimes things happen and some coolant gets out. That will make your air conditioner work harder than it needs to. So, the tech will check the coolant, add some if necessary, and find any leaks.

Equipment Check

The service tech is also going to check out all the equipment. Checking out all the equipment means that they are going to look to see if anything is missing, if there are any screws and nuts missing, and if anything is near failure. Doing all that is going to make sure that none of the equipment is going to fail while you are trying to stay cool on days when there is high heat and high humidity and you feel like you are going to melt into a puddle of goo. Those are the days that your air conditioner is going to have to work harder to keep your house at the temp you want it. Any parts that might fail will be at a higher risk of failing on those days. 

AC Age

The older your air conditioner is, the harder it is going to have to work. The harder your AC works, the more energy it is going to take to run. The HVAC tech can assess your air conditioner's age and tell you if it isn't worth doing any repairs and should be replaced instead. If it needs to be replaced because it's too old, the tech can make suggestions about what air conditioner you might want to replace your old AC with. 

Having an air conditioner when the weather is hot makes your life so much better. You want to keep it running during those days. Having an HVAC tech come out to check out your AC and service it if necessary will help keep your AC running better.
