With summer fast approaching, it’s time to turn your attention to your AC systems to make sure we can stay cool and comfortable.
One of the best ways to do this is to schedule an air conditioning service call with 128 Plumbing to make sure everything’s in top working condition.
So what will we do during your service call? We offer a variety of air conditioning services in Wakefield and other nearby towns, and they include HVAC services, AC maintenance and AC repair. We also do AC installation if you need a new system, and what follows is a rundown of what’s involved.
Fine Tune Your Air Conditioner and AC System
The first thing we’ll do during an air conditioning service visit is inspect your system, especially if it’s been a while since you’ve had it serviced.
Here’s what we’ll be looking for:
- Coolant leaks or any operational issues
- Cleaning needs, especially for your coils
- Test the energy efficiency of your AC system when it’s running
- Determine whether or not your air conditioning system need an update.
Once we’ve done that, we’ll let you know about any repairs that are necessary, and we’ll include a complete estimate about any work that needs to be done.
If you’re system is running well, we’ll make sure it stays that way by doing a tune up. That may involve replacing some parts that aren’t performing well as they should, and once again our estimate will cover all the relevant costs.
Here are some of the procedures that are commonly done during an AC tune up:
- Change the AC filter
- Assess the condition and accuracy of your thermostat
- Replace parts that are worn excessively or not working properly
- Recommend any necessary repairs or parts replacements
How Your Air Conditioning Affects Indoor Air Quality
One of the essential elements of our air conditioner service call will be evaluating the indoor air quality that your air conditioner is providing.
This surprises many of our customers, but it’s important. If you have an older air conditioning system or one that’s not working efficiently, you may be exposed to a variety of indoor pollutants that can compromise your health and safety.
Fortunately, the solution to this problem is often simple. A basic tuneup can improve the quality of your indoor air considerably—it’s one of the side benefits of an air conditioning service call in Wakefield, and we’ll tell you exactly what you need to do with your system to improve your indoor air quality.
Cooling Your Home and Beat the Heat with Heat Pump Technology
Part of what we do in an air conditioning service call in Wakefield is to recommend upgrades.
Even if your system is running well, there are new products coming on the market that can save you a lot of money with your air conditioning costs, and there are energy rebates available via Mass
Save and the Inflation Reduction Act that make them even more cost effective.
We may even recommend a heat pump. This surprises some customers, as they associate heat pumps with heating their homes in the winter.
But heat pumps also do air conditioning, and they provide the same kind of cost efficiency they offer for winter heating.
They do this by removing heat from the air coming into the air conditioning system, which makes it much less expensive to cool it to the desired temperature.
If we do recommend a heat pump, we’ll also explain which models are best for your home and you cooling needs. It’s important to match the right heat pump with the size of your home, your needs from room to room and your budget.
Residential AC Service vs Commercial Services
At 128 Plumbing, we also work on a lot of commercial services when it comes to air conditioning. Some of our customers ask about this, to see if we’re ideally suited to do their residential AC service.
The answer is a resounding yes! We’ve performed air conditioner service calls for thousands of homeowners and families in eastern Massachusetts, including Wakefield and the surrounding towns.
We also have the reviews to verify the excellence of our work. When you review them, you’ll see that we’ve handle a wide variety of needs when it comes to air conditioning services, including some that required complex solutions.
Part of the reason we’re so good at providing air conditioning service is that we take a comprehensive approach to your home and your situation.
Our HVAC techs are trained to a very high level, and they’re part of a team that also includes electricians and plumbers, both of whom are sometimes involved in air conditioning service.
Taking this approach helps us go above and beyond the air conditioning service provided by other HVAC companies.
Many simply don’t have the resources to do comprehensive service, and they also don’t install, maintain and service the array of air conditioning systems that we do, especially the new products coming on the market to lower the temperature in your Wakefield home.
