What is an Air Conditioner Clean and Check?

Your air conditioners are similar to your car, it too needs regular tune-ups to protect it from avoidable wear and tear in addition to keeping it running at peak efficiency. You change the oil in your car regularly or it will break down, a tune-up is like this for your A/C.  Are you still wondering, "what does a air condition tune-up include?"

The Air Conditioner Tune-Up Includes:

In-home visit from a certified professional HVAC technician to clean and inspect your A/C. We can even calibrate and adjust things to improve your home cooling. Please refer to the details below of all that is included.

The air conditioner tune-up checklist:

  • Cleaning — Clear dust and debris from the outdoor condenser unit. Note: cleaning the indoor coil is not included at all. If that coil is dirty, it is rarely necessary because if the filter is being changed regularly this will not happen. We will clean the blower fan blades (if accessible) and clear out the condensate drain line. A new 1” thick air filter is also included with your cleaning (most filter sizes included).

 

  • Perform Inspections — We look for cracks, wear, and other signs of future potential air conditioner problems. We will also inspect the blower wheel, all other venting and termination to look for proper airflow, and will look at all electrical connections as well. If a there are any loose connections, we will tighten them. We will check the thermostat and make sure it is optimized for the cooling season.

  • Testing —  We will test the voltage and amp draw on all the motors and test the capacitor(s). Check refrigerant levels (Must be above 65 degrees outside to test), and test safety controls.

 

  • Lubricating — Motor parts need special lubricant every couple of years or so. If they dry out, the motor can get damaged.

 

  • Review — Our technicians will give a thorough explanation of the condition of your existing system, make recommendations if anything else should be addressed and go over all the work that was performed at your home.
