Why You Should Schedule A/C Maintenance Every Year

When summer comes to Greater Hartford, most homeowners are thinking about how to stay cool and save a buck. No matter the age, size, or efficiency of your A/C, having an HVAC professional perform maintenance just once a year can make a significant difference on both your comfort and your budget. We rely on our air conditioners for those dog days that are just too hot and humid – and nothing is worse on those days than an A/C breakdown. Most homeowners don’t get their A/C system serviced at the end of the season, but after running for that last, long summer season, clogged filters and other proper maintenance items will need attention for sure – especially after the system has been idle for 6 months. Keep reading this post from the experts Brothers Oil and Brothers Mechanical to learn the most common problems found during air conditioner maintenance.

Common Air Conditioner Issues in CT

Before the hottest days of summer get here, you’ll want to get your A/C serviced. If there is a potential issue with your air conditioner and you continue to operate it, it could lead to a major malfunction or breakdown, resulting in costly repairs or the need for a replacement. Some common problems we come across during our service calls include:

  • Clogged condensate line
  • Debris build-up in outdoor coil fins restricting airflow
  • Failed capacitor in the outdoor unit
  • Rodent damage to wiring in the outdoor unit
  • Leaking outdoor coil due to damage or wear and tear
  • Damage to the outdoor unit due to fallen ice
  • Failed fan/blower motor at the air handler or outdoor unit

Determine if You Need a New A/C System

Another great reason to schedule your air conditioning system’s service is so you can determine early in the season if you need a new A/C system. Get in touch with a licensed and professional A/C company, such as Brothers Mechanical, who can provide you with expert advice, competitive A/C estimates, and a reasonable timeline for installation. Plus, we have low monthly payment financing options available to offset the upfront cost of a new A/C system.
