March may come in like a lion and out like a lamb but complete your HVAC tune-up this month, and you’re smart as a fox!
March can be one of the best months to schedule an air conditioning tune-up. Here’s why:
Book Convenient Appointments
Get your HVAC tune-up request in now, so you don’t have to wait in line for an appointment.
When the temperature heats up, that’s when HVAC systems break down. Get ahead of the curve with a professional HVAC tune-up to prevent future problems and detect current issues.
Removing Seasonal Dirt Buildup
Have you ever smelled a burning or musty smell when your AC unit turns on for the first time of the season? Dust and dirt collect on an air conditioner’s evaporator coil and condenser coils, reducing airflow and insulating the coil, which impedes the coil’s ability to absorb heat. That can make the unit run less efficiently.
Dust, hair, and moisture on an AC filter can also encourage mildew growth and put off a musty smell as air is forced through. Your March AC tune-up should include a change of air filters throughout the home.
Your HVAC outdoor condenser coils likely have a coating of winter’s dirt and debris on them. Foliage and debris can lodge in the coils too. March is a good time to cut back any foliage growth giving your condenser about two feet of clear space for optimal airflow.
An HVAC professional should inspect your outdoor condenser to check for damage from winter’s fallen foliage or icy weather.
Score a Maintenance Deal
Preventative maintenance is always less expensive than emergency repairs. Get on the books for an annual HVAC maintenance plan that can offer you a convenient time and a discount for booking before the HVAC season heats up. Annual maintenance contracts often are a requirement to satisfy your HVAC system warranty.
