Recommended Air Conditioning Services for the End of the Cooling Season

Friday, September 12th, 2014

Our cooling season is longer than in some other parts of the country, which means that our air conditioners operate for a long time. We have a while to go before our temperatures cool, but when they do, you have a window of opportunity to schedule maintenance or repair for your air conditioning system. The summer season can put a lot of wear and tear on your AC, and Shaw’s Air Conditioning is here to help you keep your AC in good working order. Schedule air conditioning maintenance in Corcoran today!

Services to Consider for End of Season

There are a few services to consider scheduling for your air conditioner at the end of the cooling season:


It is recommended that bi-annual maintenance be scheduled for air conditioners each spring and fall. Maintenance helps detect existing or developing problems, increases energy efficiency and can elongate the life of your system. Shaw’s Air Conditioning conducts a 23-point inspection with every maintenance appointment, ensuring that your AC is thoroughly inspected, cleaned and adjusted as needed.

Mechanical Repair

If you’ve noticed that your AC isn’t performing quite as well as it should, is making strange noises or even emitting strange odors, these things shouldn’t be ignored. Repairing your system as soon as possible helps keep energy efficiency intact as well as decreasing the likelihood of breakdown. Problems with your air conditioner rarely get better on their own, and are more likely to become worse over time.

Ductwork Repair

Your ductwork is the delivery system for your air conditioning. If it’s faulty – has cracks, holes or disconnections – you could be losing a lot of conditioned air. When you schedule duct repair, you can restore and/or replace faulty ductwork, and regain the energy efficiency you want and need.

When the temperature cools down outside it gives you a chance to do some air conditioning repairs. Whether you need annual maintenance, a repair or have any other air conditioning needs, call the people you can trust: Shaw’s Air Conditioning.

3 Reasons to Schedule Air Conditioning Service Now

Monday, January 20th, 2014

Even in warm cities like Lemoore, CA, heating repair is the order of the day in the winter months. We have our share of cold nights around here and when your heater goes down, you need to get it fixed with speed and efficiency. At the same time, it pays to look ahead to air conditioning season, which arrives surprisingly quickly and will last for the bulk of the year. You can get an early jump on the hot weather by setting up an air conditioning maintenance session before you need to fire up your A/C unit. Here are 3 reasons to schedule air conditioning maintenance in Lemoore, CA now.

  • The unit has likely sat idle. You don’t need your air conditioner all that often in the winter, and it likely hasn’t been turned on at all since last fall. That means that dust and dirt have built up on the internal components, which can increase friction if they aren’t cleaned off. In addition, bolts and fittings might have come loose, and similar little bits of this and that may be waiting to cause problems. A maintenance session can correct that, ensuring that your A/C is ready to go when temperatures rise.
  • You have the time to correct any problems. If a larger repair is need, it’s best to learn about it before you need the unit. That way, you can schedule a repair session at leisure, instead of having to rush around getting it fixed as quickly as possible.
  • It makes for a healthy habit. You should have your air conditioning unit serviced at least once a year to keep it functioning at its best. Setting up a service call every year at about this time helps you get into the habit of doing it and ensures that your A/C will get the care it needs year in and year out.
