Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) March 18, 2013
At the beginning of each spring, Gillece Services promotes the importance of air conditioning inspections before the air in a home is turned on for the season. As spring begins this year, Gillece promotes an A/C safety check special for homeowners throughout the Pittsburgh area to check up on their unit’s condition.
Gillece’s A/C safety startup check is conducted by a licensed HVAC Technician and is recommended to be performed once a year. After an air conditioner sits idle for several months of winter, problems may occur that did not previously exist. Winter weather, animal interference, and debris may be to blame for some problems. Certain issues can lead to the breakdown of equipment, which may otherwise be unsafe to operate.
An A/C safety startup check from Gillece includes a thorough inspection of wiring, refrigerant, all A/C controls, condensate drains, and the air filter. Each area of inspection is meant to detect for existing damages, potential problems, and proper condition of parts to ensure the unit’s safe and efficient operation. If any repairs are needed, a Gillece HVAC Technician will present available options in order to address problems before the cooling season officially begins.
Part of Gillece Services’ A/C inspection, air filters are checked for clogs and buildup. When filters become dirty, airflow is obstructed and an air conditioner must work harder to produce cool air. Homeowners are advised to replace their air filter every one to three months. Clean filters keep units running smoothly and contribute to better indoor air quality throughout a home.
Keeping up with routine maintenance for an air conditioner, including cleaning, air filter replacement, and inspections, may have a number of benefits, such as: fewer breakdowns, lower operating costs, longer equipment life, improved cooling efficiency, and better indoor air quality. All major equipment in a home should be maintained on a regular basis to keep it in good condition and safe for continual use. Like air conditioners, furnaces should also undergo seasonal inspections and receive frequent maintenance.
