3 Mistakes to Avoid for HVAC Maintenance

Is it getting hot in here? As record-breaking temps are being recorded throughout the country this summer, ACs everywhere are being overworked due to a lack of HVAC maintenance. In Arizona, we are no strangers to excessive heat, and more than most, we rely on our air-conditioners to function optimally to keep our homes and businesses comfortable through the searing summer days. Grateful for that cool air? Save money, time, and stress by following a few basic steps for HVAC Maintenance. Read on for how to ensure your HVAC unit performs at its best, so you can do the same!


In many cases, homes are constructed with air conditioning units that technically meet construction requirements, but are really unable to adequately cool the amount of space the home consists of. Especially during the summer’s round-the-clock usage, being confident that your AC is built for the capacity it is expected to function at is essential. Additionally, if you or a previous owner added a room or built an addition, the AC unit might be working harder than necessary. This results in more frequent AC repairs, which are not only a headache but can be dangerous in extreme heat. If your system is working over capacity, it’s wise to either add another zone and an AC unit, or swap out your existing unit for one that is the right size. Either way, Martin Air can help!

Location, Location, Location

HVAC location

Location is important. Builders do, for the most part, place the AC unit correctly. But sometimes people choose the most appealing site without thinking about whether it would protect the AC unit from damage and keep it out of the most intense

sunlight and wetness. Correcting a location error may not always be simple, but it will benefit you in the long run. When you hire a reputable HVAC company, you can be confident we’ve considered all of the possibilities to keep your system running at peak performance for the long run.

Essential Maintenance

Although it should go without saying, you must maintain your AC system if you want to avoid AC repair issues, just as you must maintain your car to get the most trouble-free miles. While HVAC units can often seem like an afterthought, giving yours a bit of TLC will ensure it serves you better. Additionally, it will make your appliance run more effectively, saving you money on utility expenditures.
