Get Your Air Conditioner Checked in the Spring to Avoid Summer Surprises

The summer season is on the horizon and the last thing you need is for your air conditioner to conk out right when your home needs it most. Nevertheless, many Portland homeowners wind up with air conditioning issues that developed over the winter, when most people don’t even think about using their A/C. So before the dog days of summer arrive, it’s a good idea to have your air conditioning system checked out by a seasoned technician and there’s no better time to do just that than right now.

Having your air conditioner inspected during the spring will help you avoid some nasty surprises come summer. During a quick spring check, your technician can spot and repair problems before they become a summertime issue. As technicians are often in higher demand during the summer months, having potential air conditioning issues taken care of beforehand can save you plenty of time and money.

Your technician will take a look at potential A/C problem spots, including:

  • Refrigerant lines and charge
  • Relays, contacts and wires
  • Condenser and evaporator coils
  • Belts and pulleys

In addition to preventative repairs, your technician can also perform critical maintenance on your cooling system:

  • Replace air filters as needed
  • Clear A/C drains to prevent water backups and mold growth
  • Clean A/C coils to promote better performance and clear mold and bacterial growth
  • Insure the thermostat is working properly
  • Inspect and lubricate blower motors and other moving parts as needed

These maintenance items are essential for keeping your system running at its best. Having an A/C check taken care of right away will help keep it energy efficient and save you plenty of headaches down the road.
