How to Prepare Your HVAC System for Cooling Season
Posted on April 2nd, 2020 by Scott Hale Plumbing Heating & Air
It’s been a strange start to the spring season, as people throughout Utah and across the globe hunker down in their homes, trying to keep their families healthy and safe. Here at Scott Hale Plumbing, Heating & Air, we want to make sure you and your loved ones stay as comfortable as possible as we all face an uncertain future together.
No matter what happens with the COVID-19 outbreak, the weather will continue to get warmer, and now is the perfect time to make sure your home’s cooling system is prepared for all the hard work to come.
We’re open and available to provide air conditioning maintenance, repair, and installation services, as well as indoor air quality solutions in Salt Lake City and the surrounding region. In other words, we can do everything necessary to ease your transition from heating to AC season — while taking the necessary safety precautions, of course! All you have to do is give us a call or request service online.
Here’s our checklist of essential spring HVAC tasks:
- Thoroughly inspect the air conditioner, both indoor and outdoor units.
- Change the AC filter to ensure maximum efficiency and air quality.
- Check coolant levels and top off the tank, if necessary.
- Clean air ducts and vents so the system won’t circulate dust and contaminants.
- Give the system a test run to make sure it responds to the thermostat and provides adequate cooling power.
- Track any issues we find and assess the need for repairs.
What if we find something wrong with your system? You can count on our technicians to communicate with you clearly regarding any issues they identify and to recommend the best course of action to fix them before performing any AC repairs in your Salt Lake City home.
Sometimes, we come upon a cooling system that’s seen better days and probably needs to be replaced. Just like all other appliances, an air conditioner wasn’t built to last forever, and if you’ve skipped seasonal maintenance in the past, the end of the line could come a lot sooner than you expected.
Here are a few warning signs that an air conditioner needs to be replaced.
Before spring turns to summer and you kick your air conditioner into high gear, make use of the extra time you have at home right now to whip it into proper shape! The team of technicians at Scott Hale Plumbing, Heating & Cooling is here to help you get — or stay — comfortable in any way we can. Please don’t hesitate to contact us today to schedule service.
