Properly Maintaining A/C Systems

Air conditioning systems are an investment in your home that usually last around 10-15 years in Pittsburgh’s climate. A long-lasting appliance, however, still requires a steady preventative maintenance  plan that you should follow to ensure that your system is performing well and that any problems that crop up are minor and can be handled quickly.

Most HVAC contractors provide their customers with at least a twice-a-year preventative maintenance agreement that covers basic cleaning and repair. Though many of these maintenance contracts are not included in the cost of your system’s installation, the costs are usually low and may also include a sizable discount for larger repairs and troubleshooting issues that could present themselves in the future.

Air Conditioning maintenance includes:

  • Improving the operation of your system through hot and humid summer months
  • Extending the life of your air conditioning unit through regular maintenance and system checks
  • Preventing small problems that come with normal wear and tear from turning into large, expensive problems that require hours of costly repairs, as well as labor and parts.
  • Maintaining and even enhancing the energy-efficient benefits of newer HVAC systems.

HVAC-preventive-maintenanceMost HVAC contractors will want to visit your home twice a year for preventative maintenance—once in the spring and once in the fall. In the spring, they will check and troubleshoot heating systems after the winter has passed and make sure that your air conditioning system is still working properly after likely lying dormant throughout the fall and winter. In the fall, a contractor will run a system check to make sure that the heater is ready to operate continuously throughout the winter while evaluating your air conditioner’s system after experiencing heavy use during the summer.

Pittsburgh’s Best Choice will contact you a few times a year and set up an appointment. Our maintenance checks usually take no more than an hour.

Guidelines for preventative air conditioning maintenance:

  • Replace air conditioning filters
  • Clean pan, drain and belts
  • Evaluate and top off the freon level
  • Check condenser coil and supply and return air temperature
  • Inspect system for leaks and review safety procedures
  • Measure electrical systems on motors
  • Lubricate motors
  • Cycle through cooling and heating units on system

These maintenance schedules, if used bi-yearly, will help to eliminate many costly operational issues throughout the life of your system.

Don’t let your air conditioning break during one of the hottest days of the summer! Pittsburgh’s Best Choice offers valuable preventative maintenance programs for all brands that we sell and install. Call us today to learn more.
