Routine air conditioning maintenance is a valuable investment into the lifespan of your cooling system.
Investing in maintenance is one of the best ways to prolong the lifespan of a number of systems and components that you rely on every day. For example, your vehicle requires regular oil changes and other maintenance services to ensure that the engine can run smoothly and efficiently. The air conditioning system in your home is another example of something that operates better when properly maintained, and our team at Lonon Heating, A/C and Air Quality can provide this service at your Morganton, North Carolina home. We recommend air conditioning maintenance once a year, typically in the spring before the warm, humid weather hits.
When it gets hotter outside, your home’s A/C system works by removing excess heat from your indoor air and eliminating humidity to keep it comfortable within your living space. However, without regular maintenance, certain components within the system may stop working properly, which can put extra strain on the unit and cause it to operate less efficiently. As a result, you may have higher cooling bills or a system that can no longer keep up with the demands of your household. Routine air conditioning maintenance is a valuable investment into the lifespan of your cooling system.

FAQs About Air Conditioning Maintenance
At Lonon Heating, A/C and Air Quality, we get a fair number of questions every time we conduct air conditioning maintenance. We always welcome questions, even those from potential customers as they attempt to expand their knowledge of air conditioning equipment and its care. Here are few of the questions we have been asked in the past, but always feel free to reach out if you happen to have others.
Why do you recommend that air conditioning maintenance be done in the spring?
There are several reasons. Air conditioning maintenance ensures your system will operate as efficiently as possible, so even that first month of operation will cost you less. You can also have confidence that it will perform as it should the first time you turn it on as any issues will have already been resolved. In addition, we get busier when summer temps hit, so the best way to get an appointment right away is to catch us before the large wave of repair calls begins.
With you handling air conditioning maintenance, is there anything I still need to do?
Yes, you should check the filters every 3 to 4 weeks to ensure they don’t require replacement or cleaning. Check sooner if you have pets, leave your windows open, or notice you are dusting more often than usual.
How long does an air conditioning maintenance visit take?
Typically, just one to three hours, depending on whether we find anything during our inspection that needs to be resolved. Feel free to ask for an evening appointment so you do not have to take time off work if need be.
