3 Reasons Air Conditioning Maintenance is Necessary

Monday, March 16th, 2015

When you invest in a whole-house air conditioning system, you hope to get a great return on your investment. There is no reason that this should not be the case. However, you cannot hope for an outstanding performance from your air conditioning system if you fail to take the requisite steps in protecting its condition and performance quality. In order for your air conditioner to truly excel in terms of performance, efficiency, and reliability, you need to schedule routine air conditioning system maintenance in Arlington, WA. At G&S Heating, Cooling & Electrical, Inc., our goal is to help you attain 100% satisfaction with the performance of your AC, and that starts with your 100% satisfaction with the quality of our services. When we maintain your system, you can expect great results.

First and foremost, scheduling routine air conditioning system maintenance is necessary in order to stave off problems with your air conditioner. When your system works hard throughout the summer season in order to keep you cool and comfortable, you can count on it to accrue some general wear and tear. By addressing such wear and tear during routine maintenance service, our technicians can help to prevent it from leading to much more serious problems down the road.

Secondly, maintenance service is also a great opportunity for your air conditioning maintenance technician to discover any existing problems with your air conditioner before any real damage is done to your system. Maintenance and repair are not the same services, of course. While minor existing issues may be righted during a maintenance visit, more serious issues will require that you actually schedule repairs. In either event, the discovery early on of such problems, even if they are symptomless at the time of maintenance and discovery, can be a real benefit to you.

Finally, remember that there is no better way in which to keep your air conditioner functioning efficiently than by having it routinely tuned up by a professional maintenance technician. A system which is compromised in any way, even if only by general wear and tear, is simply not going to be able to cool your home at peak efficiency levels. Don’t wind up paying too much money for too little performance from your air conditioner.

Signs of a Broken Air Conditioning Compressor in Puget Sound

Monday, May 21st, 2012

The air compressor is a key portion of any air conditioning unit in Puget Sound, and when it is failing it is important to try and catch the warning signs so you do not have to pay to much to replace it.  Here are a few examples of sigs you will notice during air conditioning maintenance, and a few solutions you might be able to apply.

When you start your air conditioning unit, does it start smoothly, or does it sound like it is jerking on, and not everything is turning on in unison?  If the air conditioner jerks on that is called a hard-start, and it is one of the first signs that your compressor is struggling.  Noises coming from your air conditioning unit will always be a good indication of how it is operating.   If there is clanking, buzzing, grumbling, or just anything outside the realm of a fan and electric humming noise there is a good chance that air conditioner repairs are needed.

If you are familiar with how to open up your AC unit, try to locate the compressor motor.  If you can tell that the wiring has shorted out, or the wiring has become irreparably tarnished this is an indication that your compressor, or motor has to be replaced.

A few obvious signs that your compressor is broken, is if the circuit breaker shorts off every time the AC unit turns on, or the unit just hums when it is turned on.  It is important to not completely give up on the compressor though, because if the unit is not turning on there could just be a loose electrical connection.  A professional HVAC technician should really repair these electrical problems.

If you are not receiving optimal performance from your cooling system call G & S Heating and Cooling to have our team of HVAC technicians service your cooling equipment.
