The Importance of HVAC Maintenance  

Heating and cooling systems are often taken for granted – that is, until they stop working. That’s where a furnace or AC tuneup can be invaluable. Not only will it add life to your system, it will help keep it running efficiently and add to the overall life of the system, and it can save you money on costly breakdowns that may be preventable. Seasonal HVAC maintenance once or twice a year can make a big difference to the efficiency of your mini-split, central air, furnace, heat pump, or other HVAC unit.

That’s why you should consider DTC Air Conditioning & Heating for reliable air conditioner maintenance in Georgetown, Cedar Park and the surrounding areas. We are a Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer, but our HVAC pros are familiar with all legacy and modern heating and cooling units used throughout Texas.

Exceptional North Austin AC Tuneups and Air Conditioner Maintenance

If your cooling system effectively cools your whole house, you probably aren’t thinking about spending money on maintenance. However, without regular AC tuneups, wear and tear can cause system malfunctions. Dirt and grime that builds up on your internal and external units can decrease the efficiency of the system and impact the free flow of cool air throughout your home.

In the long run, you’ll save money and get more out of your well-maintained system. Here are a few signs that your AC is overdue for air conditioning maintenance by our NATE-certified technicians:

  • Rising energy bills
  • Louder operating noise than usual
  • Vents blow lukewarm not cool air
  • Musty, mildew smells from the unit
  • Malfunctioning thermostat

Checking your air conditioner includes several steps:

  • Inspection of the condenser unit
  • Verifying the amount of refrigerant in the system
  • Electro-technical component testing
  • Replacing the air filter
  • Changing the airflow balance of a fan
  • Checking all moving parts for proper functionality
  • Lubrication of all moving parts

Heater Maintenance

Heating maintenance is an annual service that includes a complete examination and tuneup of your furnace. If you don’t properly maintain the system, it can pose a safety hazard to your home and family. So, more families are opting to invest in annual cleaning and maintenance for their gas, oil, or electric heat pump, furnace, or other heating system.
