Spring is Air Conditioner Tune-Up Time
Are you looking forward to warmer weather this year?
The Old Farmer’s Almanac forecasts a hotter and drier summer in central Pennsylvania this year. It says August likely will be the hottest month. Even spring may be warmer than usual, with an early hot spell forecast for mid-May.
Hot weather will be here in no time. Will your central air conditioner (AC) be ready?
You can take steps now to prepare your cooling system for summer by scheduling preventative maintenance. At H.L. Bowman, we can help you with that.
We have been assisting our customers in Harrisburg with their plumbing and heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) needs since 1946. We repair, replace, and install HVAC equipment and offer a robust maintenance program.
Preventative Air Conditioning Maintenance
Are you tempted to ignore maintenance this year? You may inadvertently put your comfort at risk, especially with hotter-than-normal temperatures forecast as early as May this year.
You likely will run your air conditioner more than usual this summer. A tune-up will ensure it will operate at peak efficiency during the entire cooling season, saving you money on electric bills and improving your indoor air quality (IAQ).
Preventative maintenance nips mechanical and electrical problems in the bud, correcting them before they become significant and costly issues. It helps to avert breakdowns and extends the service life of your air conditioner.
Our qualified pros at H.L. Bowman will inspect and clean your air conditioner during a maintenance visit. We also can repair and replace parts if necessary.
A typical checkup also includes:
- Clearing condensate drains
- Replacing the air filters
- Cleaning the condenser coil and the blower
- Lubricating moving parts,
- Checking the electrical connections and the refrigerant
DIY HVAC Tips
You can help your air conditioner run smoothly throughout the cooling season by keeping foliage, grass, and debris from blocking the airflow around the outdoor condenser unit at your Harrisburg home.
You can protect the condenser unit from falling leaves, snow accumulation, and ice by covering it at the end of summer. Use only breathable material if you plan to cover the entire unit. Plastic can trap moisture that may lead to rust or mold on your equipment.
Replacing or cleaning your HVAC system’s air filter every few months during the cooling season is essential for maintaining airflow and efficiency.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), replacing a dirty, clogged filter with a clean one can lower your air conditioner’s energy consumption by up to 15 percent.
At H.L. Bowman, we strongly believe in preventative maintenance and strive to make this essential service easy to schedule and affordable for all our customers. We offer options that help you save money while maintaining your central air conditioner.
