Take these steps when starting up air conditioning equipment
HSB claim data shows the number of air conditioning breakdowns jumps in the spring as equipment is turned on for the first time in the new cooling season.
Don't just turn it on
Often air conditioning losses result from the improper shutdown of units in the fall and winter and a lack of preparation when equipment is restarted as the weather gets warmer.
AC breakdowns often occur upon startup
In fact, the primary reason for the air conditioning failures that we see is poor preventive maintenance prior to the equipment being started up.
Losses average thousands of dollars
Air conditioning breakdowns can be expensive and disruptive. HSB's experience shows the average cost of air conditioning equipment repairs and other related expenses is $3,309 for homeowners and $21,515 for business, industry and public institutions.
Now is the time to get ready
Don't wait for hot weather to focus on your air conditioning equipment. A breakdown can shut down your business and it can be difficult to get repairs completed during a heatwave.
