Do I Really Need an AC Maintenance Inspection?
Summer is here. On the most scorching of days, the last thing you’ll want to worry about is your HVAC system breaking down. That’s why you should schedule an inspection and tune-up for your air conditioner as part of your regular cleaning. You might not want to spend the money now, but a costly repair far outweighs the financial burden of an inspection.
At Apex Air, we know you don’t want to deal with a broken air conditioner. That’s why we offer thorough inspections here in Washougal, WA, and its surrounding areas. This way, we can catch problems long before they become serious. Our tune-ups will leave your conditioner in prime condition, ready to take on the heat.
Here’s some of the the things we do during a tune-up:
Clearing out the Cobwebs
Your air conditioner probably hasn’t been in heavy usage, if at all, over the winter. A number of issues could have arisen during that time. If you haven’t cleaned or replaced your air filter in a while, dust can collect throughout your HVAC unit. This causes impaired function and compromised air quality. Our trusted mechanics will replace your air filter and clean any dust buildup in your system.
Indoor Air Quality
Now is also a good time to think about your indoor air quality (IAQ). We at Apex Air offer products that can help clean the air inside your home so you won’t have to risk exposure to harmful contaminants. Contact one of our professionals today to find out more about how our products can significantly improve the air filtrating through your ducts.
A problem that can easily go unnoticed is broken parts inside the system. These hidden culprits can cause reduced efficiency and even breakages. For example, the aluminum fins that cycle air can become bent, requiring the machine to work overtime to lower the temperature. Our skilled technicians will look very carefully for any faulty parts and replace them to prevent any future problems.
Fixing Leaky Refrigerant
Your refrigerant container could have sprung a leak over the winter. If this is the case, your unit could have all sorts of problems. This might cause the unit to short cycle or become inoperable. Our technicians will be sure to check for any leaky refrigerant. If we find a leak, we’ll fix it, and replace the container.
If any of the ducts aren’t properly sealed, you’re letting your money slip through the cracks. That’s why our technicians always check for any blockages or holes in the ductwork. That way, you’ll get the most out of your monthly electric bill.
Remember, HVAC systems use the most energy out of nearly any household appliance. Why pay more per month than you already need to? Why pay more for a system that isn’t working as well as it should? And why pay an arm and a leg for costly repairs? You shouldn’t have to do any of that. Instead, call Apex Air at 360-342-8109, or schedule your maintenance visit online today.
