Reliable Cooling System Performance: Maintain Air Conditioning
With warm weather on the way to western Massachusetts and the coronavirus potentially keeping us home more than usual in the coming weeks and months, having a reliable cooling system comes critical to maintaining quality of life for your family.
The best way to make sure that your central air conditioner or mini-split ductless cooling system will run at its reliable best? Schedule professional A/C service in western MA with FSi Oil and Propane.
Routine cooling maintenance can address minor issues before they become repairs that will put your air conditioner out of commission when you need it most. It will also help keep your equipment running at peak efficiency – an important thing if you’re running your home cooling system day and night.
Preparing for an A/C maintenance visit
Although air conditioner maintenance is not a DIY project, there are some things you can do to prepare for your A/C service call in the coming weeks.
- Check your ductwork – Look for obvious holes, cracks and faulty connections. If you find any – or even if you don’t, since many leaks in your ductwork can’t be seen – consider sealing your ducts to improve your air quality and lower your home energy bills.
- Run your A/C unit – Briefly turn on your air conditioner to check for obvious problems.
- Clear the outdoor unit – Remove sticks, leaves, and other debris that may have gathered in the fall and winter from around your outdoor condenser unit.
- Schedule your annual tune-up and inspection – Make sure your central A/C is ready for action from the first hot day by signing up for an FSi Cooling System Service Plan, which includes a 19-point air conditioning tune-up, discounted or covered repairs, “cut to the front of the line” emergency service, and more.
