Regular AC maintenance in Spokane, WA prevents costly repairs, inefficiencies, unwanted noises during operation and unwanted odors or infestations. At Sturm Heating & Air Conditioning, we recommend getting your AC serviced at least once a year, with the most ideal time being mid-to-late spring. If you decide to get an AC tune-up during the middle of summer, you might be in for a surprise if it needs to be repaired. You may have to bear the sweltering heat for several days if the repairs are time-consuming or if you need to wait for the right part to be ordered in.
An AC tune-up is a fairly quick procedure and service. It usually takes several hours at most and consists of a detailed inspection of the unit, thorough cleaning of all nooks and crannies and a realignment of all parts. Loose bolts and screws will be tightened and many services even include a filter change. A clogged filter can cause many unwanted problems down the road, like irregular temperature within the home and even loud noises during operation.
