What to Expect with AC Maintenance

Summer is upon us and it’s time to crank up the air conditioning in your house. But the last thing you want is to be stressed out over your air conditioning unit. The best way to avoid the stress is by getting a routine AC unit maintenance check. This maintenance can extend the lifespan of your AC unit, greatly improve your indoor air quality and reduce the cost of your electric and repair bills. So what can you expect from an AC maintenance?

Your AC Maintenance Appointment

We know how important your AC unit is to you and we want the unit to give you the best possible performance. When you schedule an appointment you can expect to have a visual inspection of your heating and cooling units. Often times dust and particles can build up on the outside, which can be an indicator of a major problem. Next, you can expect us to give a fan assessment to check for any damage that might have occurred to the motor or blades.

One of the biggest indicators of poor indoor air quality is the condition of the air filter. If the filter is in great shape, there should be no need to replace it. We’ll make sure your air filter is up to our standards. Sometimes poor air can be attributed to the ductwork as well. We want to make sure there are no problems with the supply of air, the return air or the exhaust air.

It’s important to be cautious of clogs or blockage that might occur in your system. We’ll make sure to give you a condensate drain examination to make sure everything is flowing freely. If your AC system isn’t working properly, it might be because of certain electrical connections. A wire might be loose or just simply not connected. We’ll give you a proper electrical inspection to make sure we didn’t miss anything. One of the most important parts in your AC system is the evaporator coil. It works by using a refrigerant inside the coil to evaporate air that passes over it. It can work in both the winter and summer.
