Maintaining Your Air Conditioner During Warmer Months

Every summer, vacationing is the highlight for many families. Before leaving for an extended trip out of town, most of them make arrangements for someone to get the mail or feed the pets and others. Most people, however, forget about other important things such as their air conditioners. It is important to still maintain your air conditioner while you are away. 

You just need to take a few moments to get your air conditioner ready! Remember, doing so can save you hundreds or even thousands in unexpected repair bills! 

Learning how to maintain your air conditioning unit over the summer will not only reduce your utility costs, but it will also help ensure that you will not be coming home to any unpleasant surprises! Here are some of the things you should do to ensure a healthy and running air conditioner over the summer: 

*Check the air conditioning filters every 30 days and replace them as needed. What you can do is to write the date on the filter itself and it is better to set reminders on your calendar – just so you never forget. 

*Turn the thermostat up, but do not turn off the air conditioner completely. The heat buildup inside your home can damage things such as wooden floors, art, doors and more. Also, your refrigerator will work doubly hard and you can make things uncomfortable for your pets if you have any. So, instead of turning off the system, just turn the thermostat up to 85 degrees while you are on vacation. The same thing applies for when it is winter; set your thermostat back, but to do not completely turn it off. 

*Inspect around your outdoor air conditioning unit for any encroaching landscaping and debris. Make sure to clear away anything that is near the outdoor unit. This helps maintain a clearance of 3 feet minimum, ensuring proper airflow. 

*When washing off the condenser unit’s coils, use the garden hose. Clean coils dissipate heat better and they can save you a lot of money on your utility bills. 

*While you are away, it is possible that there would be severe weather conditions that might affect your home and air conditioner, so make sure you also prepare for those circumstances. 

*Set up an appointment for a professional air conditioning tune-up. A licensed and qualified service technician will perform a thorough inspection of the HVAC system to detect any problems.

Twintech replaced our aging furnace and air conditioner recently. I highly recommend this company. Their quote was competitive, they were on time and respectful of our home and extremely professional. From the salesman to the installers and the owner who followed up afterward to ensure we were satisfied, we are very pleased with the service. We are looking forward to working with this company for all of our HVAC needs for the years to come. Excellent workmanship and service!

We wanted to get our AC replaced as it was 22-years old and added to this our furnace was costing more and more to repair. So, we decided to get both the furnace and AC replaced.

After going through a few quotes and product reviews we decided to go with Twintech. The three-men crew arrived early in the morning, wasted no time and got to work right away. By 2:00 pm, they were all done. I’ve found their work to be top notch and they were completely professional. I had all my questions answered to my satisfaction both during the progress of their work and at end.

I have pleasure in recommending Twintech to anyone who is looking to get their furnace or Ac replaced

Our air conditioner died On a Saturday and within hours Dave came out to take a look and discuss replacement/repair options.
The new air conditioner was installed on the Wednesday. The new unit was installed quickly. The installers were friendly and cleaned up afterwards.
We noticed a slight leak around the furnace that night and they came out the next day and fixed the issue. It has been working great and is quieter than our previous unit.
Very satisfied and would highly recommend TwinTech.

I contacted TwinTech to replace my 20-year old A/C. Dave, their service rep, promptly replied and was at my home within 2 hours. He was friendly and knowledgeable and didn't try to upgrade or oversell their A/C units but suggested the best fit for my small 1000 feet bungalow. Although this was during a heatwave and very busy, they were able to fit me in 2 days later. The TwinTech crew installed a 1.5 ton Ducane A/C unit that is now running smoothly while maintaining a constant cooling temperature. The crew were very courteous, professional and efficient and I will definitely recommend TwinTech to family and friends. I much appreciated your great service.

We had a great experience. The guys who installed our a/c did a nice job. Cleaned up.

excellent crew, fast and efficient! Would call them again when I need a new furnace.

by Private User on Twintech Heating and Cooling

Professional, courteous and efficient, don’t need to say more than that! Use them you will not regret it.

TwinTech was a pleasure to deal with from the estimate through installation. We replaced a 28 year old a/c unit with one recommended by TwinTech's sales representative Dave who took the time to go over the product with us and answer any questions. The warranty is for 10 years parts and labour and they will complete the registration for you. Installation was by Greg (owner) and Mitch and Spencer who were quick and efficient and left everything clean and tidy.

by Private User on Twintech Heating and Cooling

Very professional, from the sales consultation and inspection to the final installation. Met every expectations we had for the job. A local business with great client support. We highly recommend. Twintech is a blue chip! Thanks!

I left a live chat message on their website that my air conditioning was not working. Within 1hr a representative called me to discuss my options.
The next day he came to the house to review my needs and give me a price for a new system. Price quoted was less than I expected and the installation was completed the following day. I found their salesman and the installers very knowledgeable and easy to deal with. All my questions were answered. Everything was properly explained in regards to what unit was needed and why, along with instruction where needed for use.
The installers made sure everything was working properly before they left.
