Pre-Spring Cleaning AC Services

cleaning-vent-grateSpring has just begun! Are you ready to get your hands dirty with spring cleaning?

Before you do, we think you and your home can benefit from a few air conditioning services. Not only will some of them actually help your house feel cleaner, but they’re just good to include for the start of a new season. Stick with us and we’ll explain what we mean:

Get Your AC Cleaned With a Tune-Up

There’s no better way to start the season than by getting your air conditioner tuned-up. Not only will it contribute toward a lower monthly energy bill, but it can do wonders for improving the performance and lifespan of your system.

But most importantly, included in that AC tune-up is a thorough cleaning of its vital parts. During the fall and winter, your AC undoubtedly gathered some dust while it patiently waits for summer. This dust and dirt can cause performance issues, such as frozen evaporator coils.

You could do this cleaning yourself, but then you’d be missing out on the comprehensive maintenance service that comes with it. Let us handle this one and you can have more time for cleaning.

Change Your Air Filters

This is a great task for spring, but frankly, you should be doing it every season! Air filters are put in place to protect your system from dust and dirt, and they typically need to be changed out every 3 months.

Dirty air filters are responsible for a myriad of serious HVAC issues, so it’s essential that you have them changed regularly in order to keep your AC performing at its best.

Duct Cleaning and Testing

There’s no HVAC service better suited for spring cleaning than a thorough duct cleaning and testing. Your home can accumulate nearly 40 pounds of dust annually—some of that is going to end up in your ducts. Since the ducts are rarely ever touched by anyone but a qualified hand, there’s a high chance that your ducts are due for a cleaning.

While they’re there, they can also test the ducts to ensure that there are no leaks. Sealing any leaks will give a big boost to your efficiency just before warmer weather comes around.

Replace Your Old Air Conditioner

During your spring cleaning, sometimes you have to take out the trash, and that might end up being your old air conditioner. It’s sad to see it go, but it’s necessary if you want easy, breezy AC spending for the rest of the season.

If your air conditioner is over 10 years old and has begun demanding more repairs, fails to cool like it should, or is costing more than it used to, it could be time for a replacement. Of course, replacement is no quick decision, so you’ll want to speak with a Riverside AC expert before committing to any big decisions.

Now is the perfect time to have your air conditioner tuned-up. Contact A-Avis Home Services Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. Like our shoe covers, our customers are the coolest! Call AVIS for your HVAC needs!
