air-conditioner-condenser-3D-renderWhat’s the best thing you can do for your air conditioning in Essex, VT? Schedule routine maintenance for it from our professionals! And when’s the best time to do it? Spring—right now!

AC Maintenance Isn’t a “Now or Never” Proposition!

Monday, July 6th, 2020

close-up-man-checking-cell-phoneWhen you read our posts about regular air conditioning system maintenance, you’ll notice we often mention spring as the best time to have it done. Which it is. Spring maintenance preps the air conditioner right before the time when it does the most work, and it also lets you schedule a convenient time for the service when you won’t have to rely on the cooling system.

But we don’t want people to think that spring limits air conditioning maintenance. Yes, it’s the best time for it. But once spring is past, that doesn’t mean the opportunity for maintenance is over. This isn’t a situation where, if you didn’t schedule it for the spring, you’ll now have to wait until next spring before you do it. There is no terminal date on AC maintenance—except that it needs to be done once a year. Have it done in winter, fall, or midsummer—but please have it done!

Spring Is Here—Schedule Your AC Tune-Up

Monday, March 30th, 2020

service-reminder-clockSpring arrived a few days earlier on the calendar this year. But that’s only the “official” first day of spring, a point in the Earth’s journey around the Sun. Our local weather doesn’t obey the calendar, and the cold weather blows through here sometimes until May. But spring is still the season of air conditioning tune-ups and inspections, no matter what the weather is like. Without fail, the summer heat will arrive, and you’ll want your air conditioning system in peak shape to handle it.

To schedule spring AC maintenance, you don’t print up a list from the internet and try to get through it on your own. You need a Burlington, VT, HVAC contractor with experience, skill, and licensing. You can rely on our more than two decades of experience serving local homes with heating and cooling to give you the finest AC maintenance tune-up.

More about the Benefits of an AC Maintenance Program

Tuesday, May 16th, 2017

air-conditioner-money-saverWe often talk about preventive maintenance for HVAC systems during the spring and fall. These are the seasons when we experience milder weather, and that is an ideal time to have HVAC equipment worked on, repaired, or replaced. It gets a house ready in time for weather extremes and takes advantage of a generally slower time for heating and cooling professionals so it’s easier to schedule an appointment that’s convenient for you.

We’re in the second half of spring, and if you haven’t thought much about maintaining your air conditioning system in Plattsburgh, NY—even if you’ve already had it running for a couple of days—it’s not too late to have it done!

Taking the AC for a Test Run to Prepare for Warm Weather

Monday, April 3rd, 2017

fan-on-white-backgroundNow that spring has arrived—officially, if not as far as the weather is concerned—you’re probably making various “spring cleaning” plans and prepping your home for the middle of the year and the change in seasons. One of the important tasks to take care of is to arrange for a routine maintenance inspection and tune-up for the air conditioner, something we talked about in our previous blog post.

Regular maintenance gives an AC the best chance to make it through the coming summer without problems. But maintenance isn’t magic, and it’s a good idea to give your air conditioner a “test run” yourself a few weeks afterwards and before the real heat arrives. There are a number of common air conditioning problems that can strike even a system with the best regular maintenance, so it’s wise to be as prepared as possible. Testing the air conditioner allows you to catch any lingering trouble and have it fixed in time for summer weather.
