Spring Air Conditioner Inspection

Spring Air Conditioner Inspection

From your Trusted Plumbing and Heating Expert in Vancouver

Spring Air Conditioner InspectionWith snow still in the forecast in March, your air conditioner is probably the last thing on your mind. But summer will be here in no time. During the summer months in Vancouver, many of us heavily rely on our air conditioning units.

How often should you be getting your air conditioner serviced? We recommend getting your air conditioner inspected, serviced and cleaned once a year – ideally in the spring. This will ensure it is operating at its peak energy efficiency and is ready to cool your home in the summer time.


Air Conditioner Filters

Dirty filters will prevent the normal airflow in your unit and will reduce the system’s efficiency. Your filter may need to be replaced more frequently if the air conditioner is subject to dusty conditions or if you have pets who shed.


Air Conditioner Coils

A clean filter in your air conditioner will prevent the evaporator coil and condenser coil from becoming dirty quickly. However, over time dirt will still collect. This build up reduces air flow and insulates the coil, resulting in an inability to absorb heat.


Condensate Drains

Clogged drain channels prevent your unit from reducing humidity. This will result in excess moisture that may discolour the walls or carpet in your home.


Window Seals

Moisture can cause damage to the seal between the air conditioner and the window frame, allowing cool air to escape from your home.


Benefits of a Spring Air Conditioner Inspection

Regular inspections pay for themselves through improved energy efficiency. Did you know that a yearly maintenance check by a licensed technician can reduce your monthly energy bill by 15%?  Not to mention, the technician will find and address any small problems through the regular inspection. Problems that, if left unnoticed, could grow into larger, more expensive issues.
