Does your AC unit really need Fall maintenance in Arizona?
If we’re being honest, most everyone knows the answer to all of these questions is “Yes!”
Here’s why just having a Spring maintenance check for your AC isn’t enough. This is a picture of an AC unit that experienced this Summer’s monsoon storms (just like yours!). It’s being cleaned using a manufacturer-recommended chemical foam that releases the dirt from the coils.
All that brown stuff is built-up dirt from Summer storms!
When your AC is dirty, it has to work harder, which shortens its life while increasing your energy bills.
The good news is that after this type of chemical treatment the coils are returned to like-new condition. Plus, when combined with a Fall maintenance check, your entire system is examined and prepared to switch to heat on our first chilly, Winter night.
Fall Maintenance helps prevent costly, future ac repairs from dirt and system strain, and prepares it for heating on our first chilly night.
