If you’re just diving into your AC prep and maintenance for summer, don’t panic. Call us today for seasonal air conditioning maintenance, and we’ll help you get your AC up and running at full strength — and efficiency — in no time.
Summer Air Conditioner Maintenance
Here are the important items that should be checked by your HVAC pro each year:
- Clean ductwork — dirt and dust build up in your ducts and can be pulled into your air conditioner, gunking it up
- Check refrigerant levels and test for refrigerant leaks, repairing any if found
- Inspect the compressor & motor
- Replace worn belts & other parts
- Inspect & tighten electrical connections
- Test the thermostat
- Inspect & straighten the condenser fins
- Clean the evaporator coil
- Lubricate all moving parts
- Make sure the condenser unit is level
If you’re flying solo, here are some activities you can do yourself:
- Replace your air filter — if it’s clogged with dust, it will hike up your energy bill and shorten the lifespan of your equipment
- Clean vent covers and air return covers
- Inspect and clean the outdoor condenser unit
Broken Air Conditioner?
