In a place like Dallas, air conditioning is an absolute must. After all, the average high temperature in June, July, and August is over 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Only diehard lovers of heat would want to experience that, without an air conditioner blasting away.
To ensure that you don’t end up boiling alive, it’s good to have your air conditioning unit checked, before the hot summer days arrive. A professional Air Conditioning Dallas company will know exactly what to look for during a routine checkup. Some of these things are the condition of the air filter, the pressure of the coolant, and whether there are any leaks in the system.
If any problems are found, the HVAC technician will either be able to fix them on the spot or will arrange for a return visit to do the repairs. Common issues like dirty air filters can usually be corrected the same day. This is because most technicians keep a variety of common parts on their trucks. If the issue requires a part that isn’t so common, the repairman will have to either get it from the shop or order it in. Usually, this won’t take too long.
Routine air conditioner maintenance is also essential to keeping the system in good working order. For a whole house system, this will include checking and maintaining both the outside condenser unit and the indoor blower system. Outside, an Air Conditioning Dallas tech will make sure that the unit is free of leaves and other debris and that all the pipes leading to the house are in good condition. Indoors, the air filter will be checked along with the wiring, blower motor lubrication, and other such basics. It can also be a good idea to make sure that the ducts are free of debris.
The idea of debris in or blocking inside ductwork may seem strange to those with no kids or pets, but it is a very real issue when either are present. Toys -; whether they belong to kids, dogs, or cats -; have an amazing way of finding their way through gratings or other openings. They can also end up on top of floor vents. Whether the technician checks or you do, it is important to make sure that the cold air your system is generating isn’t blocked from actually entering your rooms.
