Why Is AC Maintenance So Important?

Why Is AC Maintenance So Important?

Just like any other installation, proper performance relies on proper care. If you don't change the oil in your car, you'll eventually burn the engine. The A/C system is no different. No one can afford unnecessary expenses or surprise breakdowns during the hot Louisiana summers. Energy bills can also rise if your AC unit is not running efficiently. The HVAC contractors at Cajun Heating & Cooling can make sure that your investment lasts. The price you pay for routine AC maintenance and tune-ups over time are much less than having to purchase a brand new system. The best way to guarantee your system works well for years is to hire a professional to do the job. You can opt for bi-annual AC maintenance care contracts at an affordable cost.

What can I expect when the A/C technician arrives?

Inspecting and Changing Filters

Hopefully you are changing your filters regularly, yet whether you do or not the technician will be sure to inspect them. Monthly filter change-outs are the best way to protect your air conditioning efficiency. If you live in a location where there is a lot of dirt and dust, your filters will need to be replaced more often. The HVAC system filters block entry of dust debris and germs into your heating and cooling system and maintain good indoor air quality. Having a clean filter puts less strain on your system and extends it's shelf life.

Visual Inspection of the Entire System

The eyes of a trained professional technician are worth their weight in gold. The AC pro will look over all parts of your system to be sure there are no visible issues with your cooling or heating. Losing air conditioning in the middle of a 100 degree August is not something we plan for and regular upkeep can prevent problems like this from happening.

Cleaning and Removing Debris

Debris not only collects in the filters, but can also collect on important pieces of your A/C and Heating unit like condensing units, blowers, and other moving parts. The damage of debris in these parts can do a lot of damage. A clean and debris-free system is sure to extend the life of your unit.

Checking the Condensate Drain

If you've ever experienced mold, water damage, bacteria or compromised air quality, then you know the value of a properly cared for AC unit. In humid Louisiana air, excess moisture and clogs can cause all of these issues in your home. A maintenance technician will clean the condensate drain to guarantee all moisture stays away.

Checking the Thermostat Settings

Most of us have the ability to program and easily manage our thermostat settings for the most comfort and the most energy efficient and cost effective system usage. Our HVAC technician will be sure that your thermostat is reading correctly and address any problems.

Checking the Electrical Connections and Voltage

Simple wire and electrical component assessment can not only save the life of your HVAC unit and keep you from having unexpected outages, it can also save you and your loved ones from destructive home or office fires. When it comes to your safety, trust our A/C professionals to assess your unit.

Lubricating Moving Parts

HVAC systems are complex and contain many moving parts. Lubricant is necessary to keep these parts moving easily and resist wear and tear. The AC tech will remove debris and dust and reapply lubricant to control friction and reduce damage.

Inspecting Exhaust Outlets

Carbon Monoxide and other dangerous gases can build up in our system and leak into our homes if we have build up in our exhaust outlets. Your safety is #1 to us and our technicians will take their time to be sure that there are no signs of corrosion, leaks, or backdraft to put you or your loved ones in danger.

Checking the Refrigerant Levels

The heat in Lafayette, Crowley and all of South Louisiana is not something we want to allow in during the summer months. Having enough refrigerant to cool the incoming air is one of the most important things for our residents. Our A/C repair and maintenance technicians will be sure that your unit is not working harder than it has to to keep you feeling just right.
