AC Season Prep

As the weather shifts back into double-digit temperatures, it’s important to be prepared for the change. When it gets hotter, your entire home is affected but needless to say – HVAC units experience extra wear-and-tear. The last thing you want is to have a major air conditioning repair right at the peak of the season; that is why preventative maintenance is essential! At Platinum, we’re here to help you get ahead of the game. Here are a few A/C-related items to keep in mind as summer rolls around.

System Components

Having a temperate house is a simple objective, but the machinery that makes this happen is anything but straightforward! AC units are composed of many valves, fans, and ducts that work simultaneously to generate and maintain the ideal conditions in your home. When you schedule a comprehensive check, many areas will receive the necessary TLC! Our team will look at the air filters, electrical connections, coils, compressors, and more – to ensure optimal performance as Arizona gets hotter.

Thermostats

The thermostat function is a crucial part of the overall cooling system! What the gauge says is important: A faulty reading can lead you to run your house at the incorrect temperature. If that’s not bad enough on its own, your electricity bill could go up due to this issue! A functioning thermostat is critical to your HVAC system! Be sure to check the unit’s batteries at least once a year.

Double-Check

Since your AC is running almost non-stop when it’s hot out, you want it to work correctly! If it isn’t, you can rack up a hefty bill and put unnecessary strain on the entire system. A worn unit has to work harder, which results in inefficient cooling. With Platinum Home Warranty, we have you covered on all maintenance and system updates! *Cooling checkups must be requested by April 30, 2021; simply schedule through our service form and a technician will make sure everything is in order.
