As summer approaches, the weather gets warmer, and we start up the air conditioning. But after months of sitting mostly unused, it’s a good idea to have some basic maintenance done on your a/c unit. Read below for some good-to-know tips about air conditioning maintenance.
1) Once a Year: It’s a good idea to get a yearly checkup for your a/c unit, particularly before heavy use.
2) Low Bids: If you get bids from a few different companies, be wary of significantly lower quotes. A regular maintenance appointment should cost around $70-100.
3) CCCR: A typical inspection checks coils, capacitors, compressor & refrigerant.
4) Efficiency Loss: Save yourself some money by getting your a/c unit maintained. You can lose about 5% efficiency without maintenance.
