The record-setting low temperatures this winter have created the need for your heating system to work at full capacity to keep your business facility and home warm. Yet, did you know that it is actually the ideal time to schedule maintenance for your AC system? At Berico Fuels, we have good availability for scheduling your Greensboro AC maintenance, before the peak warm months during the spring and summer. According to www.buildings.com, a facility management website, now is the perfect time to have your cooling system maintenance visit:
“When it’s cold outside, cooling equipment is likely the last thing on your mind. However, winter can be a great time to upgrade, repair, or reset your cooling system.
Scheduling cooling adjustments during the heating season offers two advantages: HVAC technicians have more time available outside their peak season, and better wintertime maintenance helps you avoid the need for summertime emergency service.”
A maintenance visit by a trained technician will ensure that your air conditioning system is clean and energy efficient for the upcoming warm season. At Berico Fuels, we provide a thorough tune-up to help you save money on your energy bills and prevent the need for emergency AC service this summer. Dirty condenser coils and dirty filters can cause numerous problems, so it is best to stick to a regular maintenance program for your AC system:
“A 1997 study by Pacific Gas & Electric in California found that a dirty condenser coil can increase compressor energy consumption by up to 30%. In addition, dirty filters allow unfiltered air to bypass the clogged filter altogether and deposit grime on the evaporator coil, which is much harder to clean than a filter is to replace.”
Improve Cooling Efficiency Prior to the Warm Season
Your cooling efficiency can be greatly improved before the spring season with an AC maintenance visit during the winter months. By cleaning, lubricating, inspecting, and making small repairs, you can save an extra 15-30% on your energy bills. Your programmable thermostat will also be inspected to make sure it is working properly.
Regular Maintenance Will Extend the Life of your Air Conditioner
If your condenser coil is always dirty and your filters are constantly clogged, your AC system will have a shorter lifetime due to more frequent repairs and lower energy efficiency. At Berico Fuels, our annual maintenance programs will enable you to experience the most energy savings from your system and keep the indoor air quality at a higher level. Enjoy healthier air and minimal repairs with regular AC maintenance. Contact Berico Fuels at 336-496-2509 for your comprehensive and reliable Greensboro AC maintenance service.
