While the Island might be experiencing a slow start to summer, the sun will return, bringing the heat with it! Take advantage of this lull in warm weather to schedule maintenance for your air conditioner or heat pump system before the temperatures start rising.

“Waiting until you need your home cooling system to book maintenance or repairs is a gamble. Staying ahead of the game means you won’t be stuck waiting for an appointment opening when the first summer heatwave hits,” advises Matt Cronmiller, owner of Pacific Heat Pumps.

Timing is everything!

Planning maintenance on your home’s cooling system before the summer rush ensures your system is in top condition when you need it. Planning ahead allows time for replacement parts to be delivered and for necessary repairs or adjustments to be completed without the urgency of a breakdown during peak summer demand.

During your maintenance appointment, technicians will inspect your air conditioning or heat pump system thoroughly for a variety of issues:

  • Refrigerant levels: Having proper levels of refrigerant in your equipment ensures efficient cooling.
  • Airflow: Dust and debris can build up over the cooler months. Clearing blockages improves airflow and air quality within your home.
  • Electrical components: Electrical connections and wires may have been damaged over winter. A thorough inspection reduces the risk of shock and electrical fires.
  • General maintenance: Indoor and outdoor coil cleaning and filter replacement.
  • Thermostat calibration: A well-calibrated thermostat is crucial for maintaining accurate temperature control all summer long.
  • Ductwork inspection: Leaky ducts hinder airflow and can affect the efficiency of your cooling system and the air quality of your home.

“There are many benefits to scheduling an annual pre-summer inspection,” says Matt. “It allows us to complete preventive maintenance, catch minor issues early and prevent future costly repairs. We can also optimize your system’s efficiency and help extend its lifespan through regular cleaning and maintenance.”

Enjoy peace of mind as we head into summer, knowing your cooling system will keep you and your loved ones cool and comfortable all summer long. Schedule your appointment with Pacific Heat Pumps online today or by calling 250-655-4348.
