Is Your Air Conditioner Ready for the Heat?

It’s going to be a hot summer in Orem. Is your air conditioner (AC) prepared for the heat?

The National Weather Service (NWS) predicts a 40 to 60 percent chance of higher-than-average temperatures for most of Utah this summer. Preparation is key for anyone who struggles with the heat.

It starts with your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. Your AC removes heat and excess moisture from your Utah home, keeping everyone inside comfortable and safe, regardless of the outdoor temperatures.

At Gillette Heating and Air, we always strive to find ways to save you money and get the most value from your HVAC equipment. That’s why we recommend annual tune-ups for your AC, furnace, and heat pump.

Keeping your equipment well-maintained is a smart investment in many ways.

What Does an AC Tune-Up Include?

Our Gillette technicians follow ENERGY STAR® and Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) recommendations for residential maintenance.

Here’s what a typical tune-up includes:

  • Clean the evaporator and coils
  • Clean and adjust the blower components
  • Test motor amperage
  • Check the refrigerant level
  • Inspect the condensate drain and pan
  • Lubricate moving parts
  • Tighten all electrical connections
  • Check the thermostat settings
  • Check the airflow pressure
  • And more!

Is your AC past the 15-year mark? It might be time to consider an upgrade. Give Gillette a call for a free consultation on sensible replacement options for your system!

Why Dont I Feel Cool?

Annual tune-ups provide peace of mind because they let you know your equipment works correctly. They also allow our technicians to address minor issues before they turn into costly problems. Here are a few signs that your AC might need repair:

  • The air conditioner isn’t producing enough cool air for your home.
  • When a cooling cycle starts, it quickly shuts down.
  • Your air conditioner makes unexpected noises during operation.
  • You experience temperature fluctuations throughout the home.
  • Your energy bills are higher, but you can’t explain why.
