5 Reasons You Need a Seasonal HVAC Changeover from R & R Heating & Air
Spring is here in New Mexico, and hot summer days are on the horizon. Now is the perfect time to do your seasonal HVAC changeover. Here are 5 reasons why:
1. Your System Could Short Out
A short when you start your air conditioner or swamp cooler could mean your unit is suddenly drawing in too much electricity after lying dormant all winter. This may simply be fixed by changing a fuse, flipping a circuit breaker and disconnecting any unnecessary power-draining appliances.
However, it could also mean that there are more serious issues within your unit that must be addressed by a professional from R & R Heating & Air — issues that can only be diagnosed with our equipment and troubleshooting knowledge.
2. Your Unit Might Need Some Cleaning
After going unused all winter, your air conditioning or swamp cooling unit might need to be cleaned, especially if your swamp cooling unit remained uncovered.
Filters should be changed annually, but dust and other debris may have found their way into other parts of the system and must be removed before the system can work properly and efficiently.
3. We Will Do Our Annual Maintenance
· Cleaning debris
· Checking and adjusting fan belts
· Changing filters
· Checking and cleaning valves, compressors, unit coils, pumps and motors
· Reconnecting power and water supplies
· Looking for other areas that need repair and/or replacement
Our heating and air professionals will also check the coolant level in air conditioning units.
4. It’s a Good Time to Get Your Ducts Clean
HVAC ducts can be a breeding ground of allergens, dust and debris that could affect the air quality of your home, which could in turn lead to health problems. A seasonal HVAC changeover is a great reminder to clean your ducts for the health of your family.
5. It’s Good to do Your HVAC Changeover Before it Gets Hot
The best time to do your HVAC changeover is before you actually need it. That way, you know it will work on the first day it hits 90 degrees, and you won’t have to suffer in a sweltering house.
