Hot Cincinnati Days Are Coming!
Don’t assume that because your home air conditioner has been sitting there quietly awaiting action all winter that it will be ready to function when you hit the “cool” button this summer. Imagine switching your air conditioning to “on” that first 90 degree day and nothing happens! Your house feels like a sauna and the air conditioning doesn’t work.
At Jonle Heating & Cooling, we recommend you take action now and schedule service for your home air conditioner just as you would schedule service to maintain your car. Vehicles require regular rudimentary checks of the basics: engine, oil and other fluids, tires and exhaust. Likewise, seasonal service for your home air conditioner is necessary to ensure that your air conditioning system works well for you during the long hot days of summer.
To prevent your air conditioning system from leaving you miserable on a hot and humid Cincinnati summer day, schedule seasonal spring service now with JonLe Heating & Cooling so that we can find and repair any minor problems with your system before they develop into major ones. A smooth-running air conditioner will be more efficient, save you money on your energy bills and keep you nice and cool all summer long!
Before we arrive, you can do your part by:
- Removing leaves, branches and other debris from around the air conditioner's outside component
- Clearing about a 2-foot-wide “breathing” zone for your air conditioner
- Placing children’s toys, bikes and grills a safe distance away from the unit
- Hosing off the A/C unit with cool water
When we arrive at your home, we’ll get right to work on your A/C seasonal service by:
- Checking the air filter and replacing it, if necessary
- Cleaning the evaporator, condenser coils and drains
- Cleaning and adjusting the blower components
- Returning the coil fins on the evaporator and condenser coils to their original condition if they’re bent
- Checking the coolant and filling it up if necessary
- Inspecting the unit for leaks; a low coolant level often is a sign that the A/C is leaking, not just running through coolant
JonLe Heating & Cooling also can help evaluate your home's cooling load, or the amount of cool air required to keep your home at a consistent and comfortable temperature. We're happy to share a number of energy-saving tips to help your home cooling system go the distance throughout the Greater Cincinnati air conditioning season.
