Back to School: The Ideal Time for A/C Maintenance

Posted on August 28, 2015

ctgIt’s that time of year again, the kids are heading back to school and households are getting ready for weekends of sleeping in, weekdays that start bright and early and late nights filled with homework.

What most people don’t realize is that back-to-school season is one of the best times to get an annual maintenance check-up on your air conditioning system.

With a schedule full of after-school activities and extra errands, taking a chance on a sudden breakdown of your cooling system is the last thing anyone wants to deal with. Have no fear; the best prevention is an annual tune-up from the experts at General Air Conditioning.

A/C Maintenance and Your Indoor Air

Healthy indoor air is dependent on how clean the air duct system in your home is. When your air conditioner has not been properly maintained, dust, dirt and debris can accumulate in the ducts and can pollute your home. This makes it a popular breeding ground for mold spores, dust mites and other allergens that can infiltrate your home via dirty air ducts. As if that wasn’t enough to worry about, when air ducts are filled with debris, the flow of air becomes restricted, this causes your air conditioner to work harder than it should have to.

Your Outdoor Air Conditioning Unit

Let’s not forget about your outdoor air conditioning unit, it’s extremely important to keep distance between your AC unit and any debris, leaves, dirt or sticks, ensuring that proper airflow will never be a problem. The coils on the unit should be clean and the fan blades should be inspected and adjusted when needed. If any of these become damaged or compromised in any way, your unit will not function at its full capacity, which could end up costing you extra money to repair. At this point, it’s crucial to have a General Air Conditioning expert come out to perform these tasks for you, and back-to-school time is the perfect time to make an appointment for air conditioning repair in Palm Springs.
