Now is the Time to Prepare your A/C for the Summer Heat

By now just about everyone has traded their skis and snowboards in for golf clubs and camping trips to the mountains. Spring is in full bloom on the Front Range, and that means summer is coming our way at full speed. As the seasons change, Builder’s Heating & Air Conditioning is here to help make sure your home stays comfortable.

Now is a great time to schedule your air conditioning service and tune-up in Denver, CO. Listen, we know it’s easy to put that phone call on the back burner while you’re enjoying spring in the Colorado outdoors, but here’s something to remember: The last thing you want to do is wait until the hot weather arrives. We speak from experience. On the first day in the 80’s or 90’s, our phone is going to be ringing off the hook from people looking for HVAC work in Denver, CO and the suburbs. When that happens, you will have to wait your turn and you could be waiting for hours or even a day or two. Not pleasant when your house is too warm.

There’s no reason to wait. Now is the time to schedule your tune-up to fit into your schedule instead of having to stay home from work to meet a last-minute appointment. Our trained technicians will make sure your system is running efficiently and safely. When you call us in for an A/C tune-up, this is a partial list of the services you will receive:

  • Check condensate drain to guard against flooding
  • Cleaning of condenser coils (increases efficiency and reduces wear & tear)
  • Check refrigerant level and check for leaks
  • Lubricate all moving parts
  • Verify thermostat is working correctly
  • Inspect ductwork for signs of leaks
  • Inspect all electrical connections and tighten as needed
  • Evaluate condition of blower motor

And before you ask the question, yes we believe tune-ups and regular maintenance are well worth the money for air conditioning in Denver, CO. In our opinion, it’s no different than any other mechanical system with lots of moving parts like cars or farm machinery. If you want it to last a long time and work correctly, you have to take care of it.

Evaporative coolers (swamp coolers if you prefer) are often a good choice because of our dry climate. If you have one, it’s time to wake it up from the long winter’s nap. Remember, swamp coolers are not like air conditioners. You can’t just flip the thermostat to cool and expect them to operate efficiently. They require a specific start-up procedure that is best left to the pros from Builder’s.

Whatever your favorite spring activity is, please take time to enjoy it, but don’t forget that summer follows spring and now is the time to get prepared. Call Builder’s Heating & Air Conditioning, we’ve been keeping Denver and the suburbs comfortable since 1950.
