Did Your Air Conditioning System Pass the Test?

Remember to Schedule Your Annual Cooling Tune-Up

air conditioning Montgomery County, PA Don’t wait until the first heat wave to turn on your central air conditioning system. If you haven’t already, you should test it now, which you can do whenever the outdoor temperature is above 60°F.

If your air conditioning system doesn’t start, it only blows hot air, or if there is another problem, we can send a technician out to you quickly before the rush of emergency summer service calls begins.

If you switch on your cooling system and it does not run, do this:

If the cooling system runs but there’s no cool air, do this:

If you can’t find what’s wrong after taking these steps, call us so our technician can come out and diagnose the problem.

If all seems well with your cooling system, don’t stop there. It’s also important that you schedule your annual air conditioning system tune-up while we still have convenient time slots available. Your cooling system needs preventive maintenance so it can keep you cool all summer long without any trouble.

For complete peace of mind, enroll in Walton’s Silver Heat Pump Plan or Silver Cooling Plan. Besides covering the cost of your tune-up, these plans guarantee you priority emergency service and repair discounts of 15% for all covered parts.

Other Ways to Get Your A/C System Ready

Although a comprehensive central air conditioning tune-up is not a do-it-yourself project, there are things you can do to keep your system running efficiently and the cool air blowing.

Don’t Obstruct Your Outdoor A/C Condenser

Don’t block your outside air conditioning unit with plants, shrubs, or other objects. Make sure there is 18-30 inches of clear space around the unit to allow it to “breathe.”

This helps it run more efficiently. Don’t stack anything on top of the unit either, like garden hoses or landscaping tools and products. When mowing the lawn, position the mower away from the condenser. This will help you prevent grass clippings and other debris from getting blown into your condenser and reducing its efficiency.

You can take pressure off your cooling system by running ceiling fans when your air conditioning system is on. This will move cool air more efficiently around your home, creating a wind chill effect. Using ceiling fans allows you to keep your home comfortable at higher room temperatures.
