In a place like Utah, where both summer and winter reach extreme temperatures on either end of the spectrum and are polar opposites of one another, the seasons in between are vital for transitioning certain property components from one to another. A great example here is your HVAC system and spring maintenance, which should be performed on the system each and every year.
At Thompson's Comfort Connection, we're happy to offer numerous HVAC services to clients around Sandy and other parts of Utah, including AC maintenance and any other seasonal tune-ups you may be in need of. It's important not to think of spring AC upkeep as just another chore, one that can be attended to whenever you happen to get to it - rather, this form of maintenance provides active value to your system and your home in several ways. Let's look at how this works and why it pays to have your system maintained by our professionals each year.
Firstly, because your AC has likely been sitting unused for the last several months, it's important to have it brought back up to speed before the summer hits and you start running it at full capacity. This means taking a good look at all the components of your system and ensuring that everything is in working order - our technicians will be able to do this quickly and reliably.
For instance, if the filter on your system hasn't been changed in a while, this can lead to problems such as clogging and reduced air flow throughout your home. Furthermore, in order for you AC unit to run efficiently and cost-effectively, it's important that all moving parts are well lubricated and functioning properly - not something that's possible to check yourself, which is why certified technicians should be called in for assistance.
There will often be certain specific components that need to be replaced at regular intervals despite no visible signs of malfunction. This is particularly true for the fan belt, capacitor, an motor - all are subject to wear and tear over time and will eventually need to be swapped out in order to ensure that your system runs as it should throughout the summer months.
In fact, the simplest example here is one we already mentioned above: Your filter. We find that many of our clients don't think to change their filter at regular intervals, which is why our technicians will always check this as part of the spring maintenance process and replace if necessary.
Many problems with AC and HVAC components start out relatively small, but can eventually lead to catastrophic failure if not identified and fixed. This is why a seasonal tune-up of your system by certified professionals is so important - they'll be able to spot any minor issues before they become major headaches down the line.
For example, if the coolant levels in your AC unit are low, this can eventually lead to a breakdown of certain parts. However, our trained technicians will be able to catch this early and take corrective action before it becomes an expensive problem that would otherwise interrupt your cooling when you need it most during summer.
If any of the HVAC components in your home are newer and still under manufacturer warranty, another major value-add of seasonal maintenance is that it will be recorded in your service history. This means that, should you ever need to make a claim under the warranty, you can prove that you had been actively keeping up with the necessary care and tune-ups for your system - something not always easy to do without having documentation from certified technicians.
Finally, utilizing the same certified technicians for your season maintenance each and every year can build up a relationship between you and them. This means that, if anything does go wrong with your system in the future, you'll know who to turn to for help and advice - making it much easier when an urgent problem arises.
Having your AC system or HVAC unit tuned-up by certified technicians each year is absolutely essential for maximum performance and lifespan. For this reason, we highly recommend that you book in your spring maintenance appointment well ahead of time to ensure that everything runs smoothly when the summer temperatures hit.
And at Thompson's Comfort Connection, we’re always here to provide you with knowledgeable and reliable service for any HVAC need around Sandy - so don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
