Air conditioners tend to break down during the hottest and most humid days, and reasonably so. As temperatures rise, the AC system in your Rogers, AR, home has to work harder to maintain the same desired temperature. Spring HVAC maintenance solves the common problems that add even more strain to your system and lead to breakdowns.
To cool your home properly, your HVAC system must be able to circulate air. However, as it runs, airborne contaminants collect on your air filter, evaporator coil and circulating fan. This restricts the amount of air your system can circulate, making it run longer to achieve your desired temperature.
During an HVAC maintenance visit, the service technician will clean your evaporator coil and circulating fan. They’ll also inspect your air filter to see if it’s time for a replacement.
Optimal Component Performance
Each of the components in your HVAC system has a critical role, and each will eventually wear out. Their performance degrades near the end of their service life, leading to additional strain on the rest of the system.
The service technician will test these components to ensure that each is still running at its optimal level. You can then replace any components that aren’t working properly before they create the need for more substantial AC repairs.
Proper Refrigerant Level
Insufficient refrigerant can’t properly absorb heat from the air circulating through your system. A low level of refrigerant also causes your system to freeze, causing damage to your compressor, refrigerant lines and coils.
The service technician will test the refrigerant level to ensure it’s performing well. Low refrigerant indicates a leak in the system, warranting further investigation to find and repair the leak. Finding and solving this in the spring prevents your system from freezing and breaking down on hot summer days.
