A Few Things We Check for During a Tune-up
The best time for an air conditioning tune-up is in the spring to prepare for the hot summer months ahead. July and August are our busiest times for air conditioning services. During a maintenance call, we perform an 18-point tune up to check for a few of the following things:
Run a full system cycle to ensure system powers on and off properly.
Check and charge refrigerant to exact level as specified by manufacturer.
Clean evaporator and condenser coils for increased efficiency.
Clean outdoor unit fan by removing debris such as leaves and branches and apply a weather-resistant coating.
Inspect all wiring.
Check and test thermostat.
Check and clean evaporator drain and pan.
Lubricate any components as needed.
Check condenser fan and motor.
Check compressor run and start capacitor.
Check air handler unit to ensure blower is working.
How To Prolong the Life of your AC System
Aside from getting a regular tune-up at least once a year, here are a few easy things you can do to monitor and improve the efficiency of your air conditioning system:
Clean the outdoor condenser unit. This is the outdoor component with the fan. During the fall and winter, debris such as branches and leaves collect on the fan and hinders performance. Create a 2 foot perimeter around the entire unit by clearing any objects that are too close such as long grass, plants or outdoor furniture.
Cover up the condenser unit during the cooler seasons to protect from the elements.
Check the refrigerant lines regularly for signs of damage or leaking.
Check that your outdoor unit is sitting on a firm and level position.
Replace your AC filter regularly.
