Written on: May 1, 2023

An Important Question for the Spring Season

air conditioning service Montrose, pa Spring has come to northeastern Pennsylvania. The temperatures are getting milder. Mother nature is putting on a show with the trees and flowers. And before you know it, summer will be here, and you’ll be looking for ways to keep cool.

The official start of summer is just weeks away, so it’s time to make sure you air conditioner is ready in case it’s a scorcher. Perhaps your AC just needs some maintenance. We’ll go over what you need to do to get it summer ready. And if it needs repairs, or you want to leave the maintenance to the pros, Ace-Robbins can help. In addition to providing annual cooling tune-ups, we offer a Cooling Maintenance Plan that helps ensure your AC is properly maintained and lowers the cost of repairs.

Is It Time for AC Replacement?

If you’re wondering whether you should replace your AC before the summer starts, consider its age. A system that’s more than 15 years old is probably ready for an upgrade. You’ll end up with a new and much more efficient system.

After an AC replacement, you’ll be more comfortable on hot days while spending less on your energy bills. That’s because newer systems are more efficient. They also decrease your carbon footprint.

Ace-Robbins offers a full range of air conditioning services. If you decide to replace your AC, you can depend on our expertise to help you choose the right system for your living space.

In addition to air conditioning installation, Ace-Robbins provides reliable and prompt maintenance service and repairs. And while we provide premium AC services, our rates are affordable.

Get Your AC Summer Ready

If your AC isn’t ready for replacement, you still need to maintain it. A well-maintained AC will operate more efficiently for you than one that isn’t well-maintained.

Here’s what you need to do to make sure your AC is ready for the summer ahead:

  1. Replace it if it’s too old or inefficient and repairs aren’t worth the expense. As noted earlier, a new system will give you more efficiency and therefore lower your energy costs and be better for the environment.
  2. Check your thermostat to make sure it’s in proper working order. It may also be time to replace the batteries.
  3. Check your vents. Move anything out of the way that could block the cool air coming out of your vents (e.g., drapes, curtains, furniture, etc.).
  4. Check your ductwork and seal up any obvious leaks. Fix any out-of-place duct joints in exposed ductwork areas. Leaks decrease your system’s efficiency.
  5. Clear the drain line to ensure that water won’t get routed back into your home or toward your foundation. That could cause water damage and other problems.
  6. Check your AC filter for blockages. Do this on a monthly basis and replace or clean it as needed. A blocked filter will decrease you’re the efficiency of your system. And a chronically blocked AC filter could cause your AC to fail.
  7. Check all electrical connections and circuit breakers. Make sure there are no issues with the wiring that could lead to a loss of power to your AC.
  8. Clean the outdoor condenser unit so that it’s free of all debris like leaves, twigs, and nests. This will help ensure that your system has adequate airflow.

At Ace-Robbins, we strongly encourage our customers to prioritize getting an annual cooling tune-up. It will include all of the above and more. And now really is the best time. You want to schedule your maintenance visit before the days get hot enough that you start relying on your AC.
