After the sweltering heat of summer shows up, the last thing you and your Towson tenants would wish for is to suffer an air conditioner breaking down. The dilemma is that A/C units frequently give out during the sultriest season of the year, producing not just an irritating circumstance for your occupants but a great amount of stress for property homeowners to boot.
Succeeding at getting an air conditioning unit fixed up during the summer season can be a difficult and drawn-out job. Technicians are often overwhelmed with service calls, which means a long, sweaty wait for many. Furthermore, they may ask for more for their labor during busy occasions, culminating in an unanticipated payment. Renters will be displeased should a technician be unable to get there at once, significantly raising the probability they’ll leave and look around for a different rental home.
An air conditioner that is properly maintained is far less likely to break down, and spring is the best time of the year to have your air conditioner inspected and serviced. Periodic servicing of the air conditioning units in your rental houses is of great import in making certain they all function properly time and time again. A good A/C unit should last 10 to 15 years, a number that can often go up with proper maintenance. An A/C unit kept in tip-top condition is capable and gives higher-grade air quality, unlike one that is not. Both of these are pivotal to the long-term operation of your rental house’s HVAC system.
In that event, servicing needs to occur ahead of the warm summer weather and the deluge of service calls. By having your A/C unit cleaned, tested, and tuned up each spring. You can avoid those emergency calls and lengthy, expensive repairs. It is possible to do some easy maintenance on air conditioning units yourself on the condition that you have the know-how and time to do it. For example, the condenser coils can be cleaned with a garden hose, and filters should be checked and replaced at least once per quarter, and the ducts vacuumed out regularly. Nearly all other repair items can be given to a skilled professional, as well as replacing the refrigerant.
Upkeep jobs such as these are significant to keep your cooling system running smoothly and your renters content. Keep in mind this could use up valuable time in your day.
