It’s been cold out there, and you probably haven’t been thinking about your air conditioning unit too much. However, you’ve probably noticed that the days are getting longer and that they’re also getting warmer and warmer. This can only mean one thing. Summer is finally upon us, and – if you ask us – it couldn’t come soon enough.
The reason we mention your air conditioning unit is simple. Given that you’re going to be flipping it on soon (or already have), you want to make sure that it’s operating at peak performance. This will ensure you and your family keep cool when the days really get hot during the dog days of summer.
Like many, you may believe that your air conditioning unit is just one of those “set it and forget it” type things; it’s not. Think about it. That unit has been sitting outside all winter long, exposed to the elements. That takes its toll!
Your air conditioning unit is a complicated piece of machinery, and it relies on all of its components operating ideally in order to function properly. For example, there are coils within the unit that are tremendously important to keep that cool air pumping through your home. If those coils become dirty (as they can and will), then their ability to keep that cool air coming can be hampered.
That’s not all that needs a tune-up in your air conditioning unit. There are also capacitors and compressors that need to be tended to as well. Each of these is vitally important to the smooth operation of your air conditioning system!
Of course, an AC tune-up goes beyond merely checking the parts of the air conditioning unit itself. One needs also to look at all of the other systems that are responsible for its operation. This means checking thermometers and thermostats to make sure they’re reading the proper temperatures and switching the air conditioning system on when the moment is right!
At Parker & Sons, we understand air conditioning systems inside and out. When you call us, we can provide an AC tune-up that will ensure your system is providing all the cool air you need all summer long. If things aren’t as they should be – if your system is totally broken, for example – we can help, too! Our technicians can offer you AC repair that’s backed by unparalleled expertise and efficiency.
So, don’t let your air conditioning unit fall into disrepair! Not only can this make it hard to keep cool over the summer, it could also cost you a pretty penny on your home energy bills. If you want Parker & Sons to come take a look and get things into tip-top shape, then give us a call. We’ll schedule an appointment for an AC tune-up that works for you!
