The importance of AC maintenance in Newberg, OR should be clear in the minds of homeowners regardless of what type of system they own, how old it is, and how well it runs at the moment. The fact is that even the newest system could do with a professional AC tune-up every spring; otherwise, it may develop problems that, though unnoticeable at first, will slowly affect the system’s efficiency and put premature wear on it. Maintenance can reduce the number of repairs you need throughout the year, lower your monthly bill, extend the AC unit’s lifespan, and keep any warranties valid.
"Specialty Heating and Cooling is the best. They're dependable and professional and I don't ever have to worry about my HVAC system - they'll take the best care of it."
The next question you probably have is what maintenance involves. It’s not a big commitment, as a tune-up only takes one to two hours to complete. Depending on who you hire or what maintenance plans are offered, you could get a more or less comprehensive inspection.
These are some other tasks that a tune-up can cover:
Air filter replacement
Electrical wiring checks
Start-up checks and airflow tests
Good airflow is crucial to energy efficiency; this means no obstructions from dirt and dust, which filters and coils can easily accumulate over time if left alone. Tight wiring is good, too, or else it presents a fire hazard. The maintenance technician may also look for leaks: air leaks in the ductwork and refrigerant leaks, to be specific. As part of maintenance, you may have certain parts lubricated, too, which will prevent overheating. The tune-up can also address other issues like out-of-balance fans, bad valves, and a thermostat that has lost its accuracy.
The technician may perform small adjustments and repairs during the tune-up, but if others require a separate appointment, he or she will make note of this in the report given to you at the end. The choice is yours, of course, if you want to schedule those appointments. Following through on the recommendations may help prevent a breakdown in the middle of summer.
