In May, temperatures and humidity start to rise in Bellefonte and nearby communities in the Nittany Valley of central Pennsylvania. To be comfortable during the warm, humid summer months, call your HVAC contractor for spring air conditioner maintenance. Seasonal maintenance extends the life of the system, reduces energy costs and increases efficiency to create a comfortable indoor environment.
Elements of Preventive Maintenance
Many manufacturers consider furnace and air conditioner maintenance so important that they require it to keep warranties valid. During a maintenance session, a certified HVAC contractor will inspect, calibrate and clean each element of the unit, including:
- Electrical contacts and switches.
- Drip pans and tubing.
- Refrigerant levels.
- Air filters.
- Condenser and evaporator coils.
- Blower elements.
- Ducts and joints.
- Ignition, burners and heat exchangers on gas or oil furnaces.
Correcting small problems early on can result in fewer breakdowns and lower repair costs.
Improved Indoor Comfort
Temperature regulation is just one element of indoor comfort. Controlling humidity levels and maintaining proper ventilation also contribute to a healthy, comfortable indoor environment. Too much humidity results in rooms feeling clammy. Too little humidity can cause dry skin or contribute to respiratory problems. Adequate ventilation refreshes the air. Filters and other ventilation equipment help keep air clean. Each element of an indoor climate control system must work efficiently to maintain indoor comfort.
