At Comfort Systems of Wichita KS, we understand that your home is your sanctuary. It’s where you gather with friends, family, and loved ones. It’s where you relax after a long day at work and it’s where you’re most comfortable. However, in the hottest months of the year, a home with an air conditioner that does not work – or is less than efficient – is no laughing matter.
Our air conditioning maintenance services are structured around ensuring the optimal efficiency of your air conditioner. The benefits are improved operation, longer service life for your AC unit, improved comfort, and lower electricity costs. Success requires a committed and dedicated team of highly-trained technicians that are available 24/7, every day of the year.
Why Having AC is an Absolute Must
There are multiple benefits to having air conditioning. Yes, it keeps you cool. However, there’s more. With temperatures on a never-ending rise, having an air conditioner is an absolute must. This is especially the case if you’re a senior citizen or have senior family members and friends living with you.
A working air conditioner can protect you and your loved ones from extreme heat and the damaging effects of heat stroke. It can improve your home’s air quality, help you sleep better, and improve your overall well-being and mental health. Most importantly, it can dramatically improve the lives of family members with asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), or other breathing problems.
With global temperatures on the rise, making sure your AC unit is functioning properly can be a matter of life or death.
Here are some of the ways Comfort Systems helps customers keep their AC units running smoothly along with some tips to ensure optimal efficiency of your AC unit.
Schedule Spring Maintenance
Proactively scheduling spring maintenance on your AC unit ensures your air conditioner will be ready once the sweltering heat arrives. Comfort Systems employs highly-trained and highly-qualified technicians who conduct thorough and complete examinations of our customers’ air conditioners. Our friendly technicians will come to your home and inspect the air conditioner inside and outside your home.
- Clean and Replace Filters
When your air conditioner’s filters are full of dust and debris, the entire system must consume more energy in order to cool your house. This increase in energy usage increases your costs and puts undue stress on the AC unit. Our technicians will check, clean, and replace all air filters.
- Inspect AC Ducts
Our technicians will inspect, clean, and seal off your AC ducts with industrial sealant or a combination of sheet metal and screws. This can help you save hundreds on heating and cooling costs throughout the year.
- Verify Electric Connections
Disconnecting electricity or wires within the AC system doesn’t take much. Storms, wind, and bad weather can easily interfere with these connections. Our technicians will turn off the electricity before ensuring all wires and components are properly connected.
- Check Refrigerant Lines, Evaporator Coils, and Compressor
Our technicians will also inspect the AC unit’s refrigerant lines to ensure they’re not pinched, torn, clogged, or ripped. When these lines are damaged, the AC unit produces hot air, not cold. Next, they will ensure the evaporator coils are relatively clean and free of dust and debris.
Excessive build-up of dust and debris on the coils affects their performance. Ice can build up on the coils if they get cold while the AC is running. In turn, the compressor will run higher. Our technicians will ensure there are no refrigerant leaks, remove debris in and around the compressor, and then do one final test to ensure the compressor is operating properly.
