Spring is officially here! Although some cold may linger for a few weeks, we have already seen a few days that gave us a glimpse into the warmer future. With the onset of spring, it is now time to have the air conditioner cleaned and checked by your NATE certified technician from Four Seasons. For those that haven’t had their air conditioner cleaned in years, you may be wondering what all the fuss is about when it comes to air conditioner maintenance. Some homeowners have gotten lucky with their air conditioner and the unit seems to just always work when they need it. However, these people are the exception to the rule. For the majority of those that do not have yearly maintenance performed, the air conditioner is in constant disrepair.
Consider for a moment just how long the air conditioner has not been in use and the type of weather conditions this unit has been through during that time. For many homeowners, 8 or 9 months could go by before the air conditioner is needed once again. That means that the air conditioner has been exposed to falling leaves, rain, hail, and even a blizzard during these past fall and winter seasons. Remnants from the harsh weather along with dust and other debris from the inside of your home now coat the external condenser as well as the internal components of the system.
