Consumer Reports Recommends Seasonal Checks On AC Systems

As an HVAC company we are constantly recommending routine maintenance to keep your system running smoothly and to efficiently extend it’s lifespan. But you don’t have to take our word for it. Here is what Consumer Reports had to say about it:

“Once a year, have a licensed professional change all filters, clean and flush the coils, drain the pan and drainage system, and vacuum the blower compartments. The contractor should also check that the system is properly charged with refrigerant, that there are no leaks, and that all mechanical components are working properly.”

The same report also suggests keeping the area clear of plants and debris and seal and insulate air ducts to save more. See their complete Central Air Conditioning Buying Guide. Routine maintenance can mean different things to different people. We offer an annual maintenance plan to give you peace of mind if you want it, but generally you don’t have to call us unless your unit is not working properly or if your energy bills are unusually high. See more on our AC maintenance page.
