“Perks” of Maintaining Your Air Conditioner

Maintaining your air conditioner is not a good idea, it’s a excellent idea. 

Isn’t is just the most thrilling thing when it’s 100 degrees outside and your Air Conditioner decides to call in sick that day? Leaving you to handle whatever issue is going on and having to call in your local HVAC Contractor. Take a look at the young man below, it’s summer time and he needs not be worried about being cool in the summer. But, for some reason, he is….

How about when it’s winter time. Do you want to be cold & shivering under twenty blankets? Or would you rather be cuddled up on the couch, drinking some hot chocolate, and enjoying family time? Seems like an easy answer, Right? The gentleman in the green jimmies below, is clearly having some HVAC issues and not able to enjoy anything mentioned.

Other than being cool in the summer and warm in the winter, there are a MANY MORE PERKS to maintaining your HVAC system.

Over a years time, dirt builds up on the coil. While the filter helps to slow down the soiling process, the dirt will still find it’s way to your coils. Dirt on coils decreases your airflow, and insulates the coil. As far as the outside coils, they too, become very dirty. Mowing the grass, leaves falling from trees, and wind blowing dust….these all contribute to the dirt build up on the coils.

When regular PM’s are done, you will achieve the following:

  • Preventing costly breakdowns
  • Reducing energy costs
  • Extending the life of the equipment
  • Improving system performance
  • Making the system safer

One of the ways to accomplish these goals are to clean and coat your HVAC system with products that will not eat away at your coils, nor inhibit heat transfer.

Say hello to a Coil Cleaning Kit. It has everything you need to solve any build up problems on your coils. Better yet, it will last a full year. It comes with our Instant Powder Kegs coil cleaner and First Strike Micro Coat easy to use annual coating.

Instant Powder Kegs is a powdered coil cleaner, that is easy to use, clean up and transport. Just mix with water, spray on and rinse.The coil cleaner is removing the dirt and build up on the coils. Then, apply the First Strike Micro Coat which is an annual coating that will repel anything from sticking to your coil. Leaving you with a years worth of protection on your coil.

What Are You Leaving Behind: Opportunities

batteries

Have you ever made a trip to Walmart or your local grocery store? 

How many times have you went in with the mindset of what you need to get, only to return home and realize the ONE thing you went for you FORGOT! 

P.S If you don’t have to make trips to your local store, give me a call with your secret because we spend a fortune at Walmart. 

Okay, back to the moral of the story. 

In the HVAC world the possibilities are endless! We all know that there are so many things that can be done to prevent problems from occurring inside the HVAC System. My question for you is, do you look for the ways to prevent these problems from popping up? 

I would guarantee that a Contractor makes several visits out to job sites to check things out, maybe even do a quote. How many times have you went to check out a job, only to leave and realize that you could’ve prevented your client from having to spend thousands of dollars later on down the road, by offering them a simple, easy, preventative maintenance fix NOW. 

Today, everyone has an “I want it now” type of mentality. Well, why not use that mentality when trying to save and prolong your HVAC equipment. 

Don’t take a trip to your Air Handler and forget to remember ways to help your client out. 

If you are a client, don’t forget to ask if there are other ways your contractor can help you out. 

Did you take a thorough look at everything and make sure that you checked every nook and cranny? Give the quality of work that the client and the HVAC system deserves. 

In the months to come, we are going to be using the “What Are You Leaving Behind” as one of our blog categories because let’s face it. The HVAC system is an entire world of possibilities and opportunities. 

For instance, if the HVAC system is being looked at for a condensate drain pan leak; you have the solution to stop the pan from leaking. But did you walk away without suggesting a solution to keep the pan from corroding (which is more than likely the reason the pan leaked in the first place)?

I would love to hear some feedback on what other things you offer as a Contractor when you go to visit your clients and help them out. 

I would also love some feedback from the clients and how their Contractors have helped them out or maybe haven’t helped them out. 

Just like you leaving the grocery store and thinking, “Did I forget anything?”. Do the same thing when leaving the HVAC System- “Did I forget anything?”.
