Are You Ready to Beat the Heat?


It’s coming, and it will be here before you know it. I’m talking, of course, about summer! Right now, the weather experts are calling for a hot, dry summer for much of the Lower Mainland. If you’ve been thinking about installing an air conditioner, now is the perfect time to do so. Once the temperatures rise, our phone here at Lewis MacLean starts ringing. People want cool air, and they want it fast. If you wait until the first heat wave hits, you might not get that cool, crisp relief as quickly as you would like. But you can beat the summer rush! That’s why I’ve been talking about air conditioning for the past couple of months. I want to do everything I can to make sure your air conditioning system is running optimally this summer. During the spring, you can get your new A/C unit installed without having to wait. Unfortunately, most people won’t call us until July, and they will wait. That’s just human nature. It’s not hot yet, so getting the A/C serviced isn’t on people’s minds. They won’t start thinking about the heat until July and August, by which time you’ll be lounging in the lap of breezy luxury. As I shared last month, if you already have an A/C or heat pump, don’t forget to schedule a tuneup before you turn on the air. Even if nothing is wrong with your A/C today, a maintenance check will make sure you have a trouble-free summer. Remember, tuneups don’t just help to keep your system running efficiently; our technicians can identify potential issues that may emerge later in the season.

Here’s another little tidbit to keep in mind: The Canadian Federal Government is going to mandate that all A/C equipment get checked out for refrigerant leaks on an annual basis. This is a service we’ve provided for customers for years. When you get a tuneup, we check for leaks. It just makes sense. After all, we don’t need a new hole in the ozone layer! You may remember all the talk about ozone in the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s. Certain refrigerants played a role in the depletion of the ozone layer. Many of these refrigerants

and chemicals are no longer in production, but they’re still present in older units. When we’re proactive about preventing leaks, we help protect the environment — both Earth’s environment and the environment in your own home. I hope you’re having a wonderful spring and staying comfortable. As always, if you need anything from us, we’re here for all your plumbing, heating, drainage, and air conditioning needs! We’re standing right next to the phone 24/7 ready to take your call.
