Three Issues You Can Avoid By Having An Air Conditioning Tune-Up

Heating and cooling systems are like any other equipment; they need regular maintenance to perform their best and avoid breakdowns. If you’re a Hayward homeowner or live anywhere in the Bay Area, you’ll want to know what potentially costly repairs you may be able to avoid this summer by having your system tuned up!

Keep comfortable this summer and avoid worries with your A/C system such as:

Frozen evaporator coils. A vital component of your air conditioner, refrigerant moves through the evaporator coil which cools the air in your home. If the coil freezes up, it not only prevents cooling but can also cause substantial damage to other components of the system. Freezing coils often occur due to low refrigerant, problems with the fan motor or a dirty air filter. Our technicians can diagnose the issue and make the necessary repairs so you enjoy cool, comfortable air.

Water leaks. Moisture or condensation builds during the cooling process, which is normal and typically drains to the outdoors. However when the drain becomes cracked or clogged, water may leak into your attic or other areas of your home depending on where the indoor unit and condensate line are positioned. Water is extremely damaging to a home, especially if a leak goes unnoticed over a period of time. During a routine inspection our A/C technicians check every component of your system, including the condensate line and drain.

Complete breakdown. Nothing is more frustrating than having your cooling system completely break down when temperatures are soaring during summer months. Most times it happens unexpectedly, however by having regular tune-ups you can avoid this disastrous situation. Regular maintenance means your system is thoroughly checked out so preventive measures can be taken to ensure efficient operation.

Any of these problems can be costly, but in most cases they can be avoided.
