While we didn’t have much of a winter around Asheville and Western North Carolina, Spring is now in full swing as evidenced by the pollen coating seemingly everything. With the longer days and warmer weather, I’m sure a lot of folks are thinking about spring cleaning around their house. While there are various origins of spring cleaning according to Wikipedia, there are two most likely for folks in the US adopting the practice. One because it was warm enough to open the windows and let the wind remove the dust in the time before vacuum cleaners, and the other to clean the soot from the coal furnace off the walls and furniture when it was done for the season.

Whatever your reason for spring cleaning around the house, this is also a good time to think about scheduling a “spring cleaning” for your AC unit. If running properly there shouldn’t be any soot to worry about (and unfortunately, we do not work on coal furnaces) but other routine maintenance will get your unit in proper working order for the summer. Cleaning, tightening, adjusting, checking refrigerant pressures and electrical readings are all critical to ensure your unit is working effectively and efficiently to keep your home comfortable and the power bills down. It also gives the opportunity to identify potential minor issues that could turn into major problems if not addressed.
Call us today to schedule your spring AC tune-up. We will of course leave our work area clean, but for the rest of spring cleaning around the house, it may be best to leave that to the cleaning professionals.
