The outdoor A/C unit will get recharged with fresh coolant if needed, and internal pieces are lubricated or replaced if there is significant wear
I’ve been told hundreds of times that I tend to be too cautious. I wouldn’t call it being overly careful as much as I would call it being “defensive”! Rather than be caught off-guard by inconveniences both minor and major, I’d rather make sure everything is working just as it should. That’s why I take my car in for a tune-up every three months, which includes an oil change, tire rotation, fluid refill and more. The same goes for my home’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning system, which also gets a checkup every three months! When my HVAC system gets the seasonal check-up from my usual heating and A/C service company, a technician comes to inspect every square inch of the system. The thermostat is checked out to ensure accuracy, and will also get a new set of batteries in case the old ones are almost depleted. The outdoor A/C unit will get recharged with fresh coolant if needed, and internal pieces are lubricated or replaced if there is significant wear. Best of all, the ductwork is swept out using a special vacuum, so I don’t have to worry about my air quality being anything less than pristine. Even in the spring, when pollen is flying through the air at much higher concentrations, I don’t have to worry about my air quality suffering. I can’t stress enough how valuable this maintenance plan is with my HVAC service company – they’ve probably helped me avoid half a dozen major repairs thanks to this!
