How an AC Tune-Up Keeps You Cool
As Mother Nature flirts with 80-plus-degree temperatures during these last few weeks of spring, it may feel like summer has arrived in South Central Pennsylvania.
As we count down to the official start of the new season on June 21, it is the perfect time to prepare your air conditioner for the hot days ahead. A tune-up will ensure your cooling system will perform efficiently and safely when you need relief from heat and humidity when the dog days of summer kick into high gear.
At H.L. Bowman Inc., our expert technicians are ready to inspect, clean, tweak, and make any necessary repairs to your cooling system to ensure it is in top shape before you put it into service for the summer.
We are a family-owned heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) company with roots firmly established in Harrisburg and surrounding communities. We have built a reputation for reasonable pricing, quality work, and dedication to customer service.
Our HVAC technicians will never pressure you into buying something you don’t need. We assess your heating and cooling needs and offer the best solution to improve comfort in your York home.
Preventative Maintenance Is Essential
Air conditioning maintenance tops our list of springtime recommendations. We take preventative maintenance seriously, and we hope our customers recognize its value too.
Why spring? An air conditioner checkup during warm weather does not disrupt your comfort at home as it would during a summer scorcher. Our AC experts tune up your cooling unit as quickly as possible but turn it off before working on it.
Spring is also the best time for prevention. If you run your cooling system without maintaining it, you might inadvertently make a budding problem worse. A worn or dirty part that could easily be replaced or cleaned during a tune-up could cause other components to fail, leading to a breakdown. A spring checkup stops simple problems from growing into major headaches.
Safety and Health
After you turn on your AC for the summer, you may forget about scheduling a checkup. Your air conditioner might not show any signs, such as weird sounds or lukewarm air, that indicate a problem. You might assume it is working well. However, it may be operating inefficiently and costing you money. It may not be regulating humidity as well as it should.
High humidity is a health and safety issue because it can decrease indoor air quality (IAQ) in your York home. Too much moisture is the perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), mold exposure can irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs.
During a maintenance visit, we look for leaks or clogs in your AC condensate drain that could cause mold growth within your cooling system.
Our Maintenance Value Plans can help you stay on track with HVAC tune-ups. We will remind you to schedule maintenance before the cooling season begins. You will never miss another air conditioning checkup.
In addition to equipment tune-ups, our plans offer discounts on service fees and plumbing and HVAC repairs, free electrical and plumbing inspections, priority service, and repair guarantees.
