A/C maintenance is important for both residential and commercial air conditioning systems, and Timothy Off advises our customers throughout West Chester, PA, and the surrounding areas to schedule it on a routine basis. A seasonal tune-up not only extends the life of your air conditioner but lowers your month-to-month cooling costs and helps to avoid a sudden failure in the middle of summer. Our tune-ups include a comprehensive inspection, cleaning, and correction of all normal wear and tear.
Improve Safety and Energy Efficiency
Home and business owners throughout Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery counties can significantly lower the total cost of ownership of their air condition systems with regular maintenance. Your total cost will be lower because your system is more energy-efficient and thus cheaper to run, you will spend less on unexpected repairs, and your system will reach its full longevity potential. Consumers and businesses should also be aware that routine maintenance is often a requirement of any warranty coverage. You can schedule maintenance as needed. But we also offer an annual Energy Savings Plan that helps you save and keeps your equipment on schedule, and if you take advantage of our Energy Savings Program, you will receive other benefits, such as priority service, a discount on repairs, and no overtime charges.
Air Conditioning Systems We Service
There are many different air conditioning systems used for residential and commercial purposes throughout our service area, and we specialize in all of them. That includes central air conditioners, which are the most prevalent cooling solution, but our NATE-certified technicians are also skilled with ductless mini-splits, air-source heat pumps, geothermal heat pumps, and hybrid systems.
Central air systems are used in most homes and businesses in our region. This approach requires ductwork that delivers cooled air to the various zones within a residence or commercial site, and those ducts allow for a consistent temperature throughout the building. These systems have many different components in addition to ductwork, including a condenser, blower, coils, and cooling lines. They also have many moving parts, which results in wear and tear and thus requires maintenance.
Heat pumps can both heat and cool a home or business. You can think of them as an air conditioner that can also run in reverse. They are prevalent throughout much of the U.S. and becoming increasingly more common in Pennsylvania as the technology advances. Although a heat pump houses both a cooling and heating solution, it is still recommended that you schedule maintenance twice a year.
A mini-split is a type of heat pump that blows air directly out into the living space rather than through ducts. Mini-splits are often smaller but have an indoor and outdoor unit and all of the same moving parts that a heat pump does and thus requires seasonal maintenance twice a year. Mitsubishi makes the best mini-splits on the market, and our technicians are Mitsubishi Diamond Contractors.
Geothermal heat pumps—otherwise known as ground-source heat pumps—are similar to air-source heat pumps except that heat is transferred from the earth as opposed to the ambient air. This requires piping that is installed underground, and that adds a layer to the inspection required.
What to Expect During an A/C Maintenance Service
- Thorough cleaning of condenser coils
