With the humidity in St. Louis, MO, even if the actual air temperature is under 100 degrees, the heat index can soar to well over 100 degrees. An AC breakdown during a summer heat wave can be uncomfortable and dangerous, so schedule HVAC maintenance to prevent hazardous temperatures in your home.

Why Do You Need HVAC Maintenance?

Your air conditioning system is under a lot of stress during the summer. That stress, combined with the constant starting and stopping of the system, creates wear and tear on the various parts. When parts begin to wear, they are prone to breaking, and the system’s efficiency deteriorates.

During a maintenance visit, the AC technician can identify worn parts that might lead to a breakdown. That gives you the option of making minor repairs before small issues grow into major problems.

Maintenance helps your system run at peak efficiency. It can also help maximize the longevity of your cooling system.

What Happens During Maintenance?

If you’re in the St. Louis, MO area, you can contact us to schedule a cooling system tune-up. During the maintenance session, our technicians will perform numerous checks and adjustments. The visit will include inspecting these parts of your heat pump or air conditioner:

  • Fan
  • Compressor
  • Indoor and outdoor coils
  • Refrigerant levels and lines

Our technicians will also clean the drip pan and condensate line. This can prevent biologic particulate and mildew from building up within the system. If we spot dirt or leaks within the ductwork, you can schedule an appointment to address those issues.

Regular cooling system tune-ups can reduce the risk of a breakdown and increase the system’s longevity. Call C & G Heating & Cooling today for convenient maintenance plans to keep your heat pump or air conditioner running at peak performance.
