Air Conditioning Service & Maintenance Tips
When you really think about what the air conditioner in your Wenatchee Valley home does, it can seem quite basic. The irony is that the system that helps keep your home cool is rather complicated, which also means that there are many things that can go wrong with it.
This means that home maintenance and professional service maintenance for your air conditioning equipment is important.
It is also important to work with someone who knows what it takes to get the job done and who is reputable within the community.
Keep your system running the way it should and you will find that you won’t need repairs as often, the equipment is more efficient, and it lasts as long as it should.
The Cooling Specialist You Choose Matters
In a perfect world, you would always hire the perfect contractor for every type of job that you have and the work would always be spot on. In the real world, sometimes you make the mistake of hiring the wrong cooling contractor and end up paying for shoddy workmanship. Be sure you choose a local, reputable company who has been around awhile and has good reviews.
Selecting the incorrect size for installation isn’t always the homeowner’s fault because it comes on the recommendation of an air conditioning contractor who should know what size is needed. Bigger isn’t a good answer and too small is not a good answer either. For both scenarios, you can end up putting too much strain on your system, run up your utility bills and cause your HVAC to break down sooner.

Air Conditioning Tune-Ups & Maintenance Is Necessary
Continuing to run your air conditioning all the time while dirty. You should never put your AC through such taxing conditions that it has to work at maximum capacity while it’s dirty and hasn’t been tuned up. This is the major cause for expensive repairs and replacement.
Regular maintenance and tune ups are important. Your HVAC system should be tuned up before the season changes and you switch the equipment over. During the tune up, there are certain parts of the system that need testing, adjusting, lubricating, and cleaning. This service prevents breakdowns and stressing the system so much that you have to replace it years sooner than you should have to.
Other Tips For An Efficient Air Conditioner
Don’t shut down your AC completely for a long period of time. Too many homeowners assume they will save money and help prevent repair needs by shutting off their system completely while gone for a vacation or prolonged period of time. This can cause high humidity for the home and is bad for the machine which is built to run, not sit idle.
Don’t neglect taking care of the air filters. It can be easy to put off or forget altogether but you need to take care of cleaning and replacing your HVAC filters on a regular basis. It is that much more important to do so during peak use times.
