Keeping Your Cool: Ensure Newington Tenant Satisfaction with Springtime A/C Maintenance

Technician Checking Air Conditioner at a Rental Home in NewingtonThe instant the scorching heat of summer appears, the last thing you and your Newington tenants would want to endure is the experience of an air conditioner cutting out. The issue is that A/C units oftentimes stop working during the most blazing hot times of the year, making not only a miserable predicament for your residents but a fair amount of hardship for property owners too.

Finding a way for an air conditioning unit to be restored to working order during the summertime can be a seemingly endless and exhausting task. Technicians are often overwhelmed with service calls, which means a long, sweaty wait for many. What’s more, they may possibly demand more for their work during critical times, triggering an expense without warning. Renters will be displeased should a technician be unable to get there at once, significantly raising the probability they’ll leave and look around for a different rental home.

An air conditioner that is properly maintained is far less likely to break down, and spring is the best time of the year to have your air conditioner inspected and serviced. Periodic servicing of the air conditioning units in your rental houses is of great import in making certain they all function properly time and time again. A good A/C unit should last 10 to 15 years, a number that can often go up with proper maintenance. A cared for A/C unit is more capable and supplies good-quality air compared to one that is not, both of which are significant to the long-term functioning of your rental property’s HVAC system.

Accordingly, servicing and maintenance have to happen in advance of the high summer temperatures and the rush of service calls. By having your A/C unit cleaned, tested, and tuned up each spring. You can avoid those emergency calls and lengthy, expensive repairs. It’s within reach to do some simple maintenance on air conditioning units yourself with the understanding that you have the opportunity and proficiency. For example, the condenser coils can be cleaned with a garden hose, and filters should be checked and replaced at least once per quarter, and the ducts vacuumed out regularly. Practically all other maintenance items should be rightly left to an expert, which includes replacing the refrigerant.

Similarly, repair chores are pivotal in keeping your cooling system running smoothly and your occupants in good spirits, but this can waste some of your invaluable time.
