In Boiling Springs, SC, it’s easy to put off AC maintenance when your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system is working. However, the longer you wait to perform this important task, the higher the risk of experiencing a breakdown. Preventive maintenance is one of the most cost-effective ways to keep your HVAC unit running smoothly, prolong system life, and ensure a comfortable indoor environment. The licensed HVAC contractors at George M. Hill & Sons, Inc. provide seasonal maintenance and other professional HVAC services for all brands of heating and cooling equipment.
Elements of Maintenance
When our NATE-certified technicians perform a tune-up, we examine, clean and calibrate every major component of your system:
- Check refrigerant levels.
- Oil moving parts.
- Clean coils.
- Clean condensate system.
- Examine electrical connections and voltage.
- Ensure unit cycles properly.
- Clean filters.
- Check and adjust the thermostat.
- Check the pressure and air flow.
- Inspect ducts.
If we find problems, we recommend options based on the cost of repairs, the severity of the problem, and the age of the unit. We take into account your budget, lifestyle, and indoor comfort needs.
Benefits of Maintenance
Seasonal tune-ups are often required by manufacturers to keep warranties valid. Maintenance ensures that all components of a system perform properly and that the entire system works at optimum efficiency.
Well-tuned systems use less energy. Simply changing the air filter can reduce energy usage by as much as 15 percent.
Using an AC in the hot, humid South Carolina summers keeps the indoors comfortable. Lack of maintenance makes the unit work harder to heat and cool. Air may not be cool or distributed evenly. Preventive maintenance reduces the likelihood of untimely breakdowns by up to 95 percent.
HVAC systems should last at least 10 years if properly installed and kept in good working order. Heating and cooling equipment is a large investment. Lack of maintenance shortens the service life, requiring you to purchase a new unit earlier than expected.
