Don’t Race the Summer Freight Train—Get an A/C Tune-up Now

Can you see that light in the distance? That’s not the light at the end of the tunnel. That’s the summer freight train rolling your way, bringing heat and humidity back to Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana. Now is the best time to call Merts Heating & Air Conditioning to schedule your air conditioning service and tune-up.

We understand how easy it can be to procrastinate, it’s a busy time of year. Now that winter is behind us you are outside working on the lawn and garden; but the longer you wait, the more you risk having to spend time in a hot house. We speak from experience. When the first hot weather arrives, our Merts technicians are going to be busier than a dog attending a cat convention. In short, no matter how hard we try to get there, you could be waiting for several uncomfortable hours.

When you call us in for home air conditioner maintenance, our trained Merts technician will make sure your system is running efficiently and safely. This is a partial list of the services you will receive:

  • Cleaning of condenser coils (increases efficiency and reduces wear & tear)
  • Check refrigerant level and check for leaks
  • Lubricate all moving parts
  • Verify thermostat is working correctly
  • Inspect ductwork for signs of leaks
  • Inspect all electrical connections and tighten as needed
  • Evaluate condition of blower motor

We are asked all the time if air conditioner tune-ups are worth the money? We understand why some people ask the question, but our answer is always the same. Yes, it is. HVAC maintenance is no different than maintenance on any other mechanical system with lots of moving parts, like cars or farm machinery. If you want it to last a long time and work correctly, you have to take care of it. If a friend or neighbor tells you no, it’s not necessary, he or she might be the same type of person who gets stranded on the side of a road waiting for a tow truck to arrive.

Please take time to enjoy your spring because you deserve it after a Great Lakes winter, but call Merts Heating & Air Conditioning right now to make sure you stay cool and comfortable when the heat arrives.
