Why Annual Air Conditioning Maintenance is Necessary

Every spring and fall, twice a year, your heating and cooling system needs maintenance. Perhaps you had just had fall maintenance on your system and wonder why you need to schedule it again. The main reason is that your cooling system hasn’t been running for nearly a year and proper maintenance will ensure your unit is stable and ready to take on the demands of summer.

So, yes, if you haven’t already, it’s time to schedule your annual air conditioning maintenance for only $69. This includes maintenance of your entire HVAC system and will reset your units to factory-fresh condition ensuring maximum reliability and efficiency when you need it most.

Before your technician arrives there are a few things you can do to prepare.

  1. Check for damage to the outdoor unit panels. Examine and clear the grilles of dirt, mud, or debris and make note of issues you would like to discuss with your technician.
  2. Remove covers. Although winter in San Diego isn’t severe enough to warrant extensive use of covers, some people do cover their units to prevent small animals from finding it to be an inviting home.
  3. Clean around the unit. Clear away tall grass, leaves, and shrubs, as well as any other debris within two to three feet around the unit. Avoid placing mulch around the condenser. Trim back overhanging limbs so they don’t fall on the condenser during storms.

Make sure your system is ready to keep your family cool and comfortable this summer! To book your AC System Check or to learn more about annual air conditioning maintenance contact Sherlock Plumbing, Heating and Air proudly serving North County San Diego and surrounding areas.
