Spring Is an Ideal Time to Service Your HVAC Unit

When winter is finally over, it’s tempting to just open up the house and enjoy the fresh air. However, summer will be here soon. To keep your home comfortable, take these springtime temperatures as a trigger to get your HVAC serviced and make sure your air conditioner is ready for spring.

Signs That Your AC Unit Is Not Functioning Effectively

You don’t have to wait until your AC quits to take action in protecting this unit. If you notice that your AC unit is working hard but not cooling your home, it may need to be cleaned. If you notice that your utility bills are climbing along with the temperature inside your house, it’s possible that your AC unit needs to be serviced or charged.

Take what steps you can to protect your air conditioner. Make sure you clear away any vegetation that may try to grow up the grill. Keep a regular schedule of HVAC filter changes going inside your home to keep your system free of dust, dirt, and pet hair.

Get Your Air Ducts Checked

If you notice an odd smell in your home, it could be that your ductwork needs attention. Getting your ducts cleaned may also be necessary if any space in your house simply doesn’t get as much cool air as the rest of the residence. When you’ve done all you can, it’s time to call in a professional.

You may have members of your household who struggle with allergies or asthma. Making duct cleaning a regular part of getting your HVAC unit serviced is a terrific step in protecting the air quality of your home and protecting the health of your loved ones.

Benefits of Cleaning and Servicing the Unit

The evaporator coils on your AC unit can quickly become clogged with dust and dirt. Air conditioners generate a lot of moisture and need to be able to drain; if your drain lines are clogged, the system may not function effectively. A unit that is laboring hard because it’s dirty or clogged can also develop a refrigerant leak and need a charge.

Take Action Before Problems Arise

Working with a skilled professional who can help you keep your AC working effectively through a detailed service and cleaning each year is critical. This professional can also give you a heads-up if it seems that your compressor is failing. No matter how carefully you treat your air conditioner, it will eventually wear out. The right professional can help you plan for replacing the unit.

Making sure that your Santa Barbara, CA home has reliable air conditioning all summer long is easy with help from the team at Crocker Refrigeration Heating & Air, so book a service appointment before summer comes.
