Greenstar Home Services, the leader in environmentally conscious plumbing, HVAC maintenance, and whole home water filtration in Orange County and Las Vegas, is launching a pre-season initiative to help homeowners maintain their air conditioning units to get them prepared for the severe summer weather coming to Southern California in a few months.
Weather forecasters expect the Summer of 2014 to be unusually hot and long for Southern California. This is something the area has not seen in eight years. Because of this, many air conditioners may have had little use over the last few years and are overdue for a tune-up. Greenstar Home Services is encouraging homeowners to have their air conditioning units looked at before they break down in the dead of summer. Having a tune-up ensures the health of the system by checking that all components work properly, especially those conducting gas and/or electricity. A tune-up will also give you peace of mind knowing your air conditioner will be running strong even through the hottest months of summer.
Being proactive with preventative maintenance of your HVAC unit can not only help avoid future breakdowns, but can also make your system more energy efficient. Southern California Edison recommends customers, “have a licensed heating and cooling professional conduct a thorough cooling system inspection and cleaning once a year. A central AC tune-up could save you up to $100 or more on summer cooling costs.”
