The first day of spring is around the corner, and we are already experiencing spring temperatures – it won’t be too long before you need to use your ductless AC. While this is good news, it’s important that your air conditioner is ready for use, and one of the best ways to do that is to schedule maintenance for your ductless AC in Jacksonville.
How Often Should I Schedule?
It’s recommended that air conditioning systems are scheduled for maintenance at least once a year; if your ductless AC is a heat pump, then you’ll want to schedule maintenance bi-annually. The ideal times of year for maintenance are spring and fall, but this isn’t a hard-and-fast rule. It’s important to have maintenance performed, even if that’s in July or December.
How Does the Technician Get My AC Ready?
Maintenance is a full tune-up of your system, so there are a number of tasks performed during the appointment, including:
- Thorough inspection of your system
- Small repair (frayed wiring, loose fan belts)
- Adjustment as needed
- Lubrication of all moving parts
- Performance testing
How Does Maintenance Affect My Air Conditioner?
Maintenance has an overwhelmingly positive effect on your ductless air conditioner. First, removing any debris and cleaning off accumulated dust and dirt helps the components and the unit function optimally; when the system functions optimally, it achieves the energy efficiency it was made to, plus it cools your home as expected without having to put forth the extra effort. Second, the inspection allows the technician to discover any existing or developing problems so that you can get ahead of repair. Third, maintenance keeps your whole unit in good working order for the season, which helps with overall performance.
The hot temperatures have a way of sneaking up on us, so don’t get left feeling uncomfortable because of a poorly operating air conditioner.
