A/C Maintenance Experts
Have one of our NATE trained technicians perform a complete diagnostic check and maintenance routine on your air conditioning system at least once a year. It is best to schedule before Summer. If you run your A/C year-round, you might also consider one of our maintenance service plans.
Air Conditioning Maintenance Checklist
- Verifying your thermostat is displaying the proper temperature readings.
- Replacing your filter with a pleated filter supplied by the customer. A pleated filter is recommended by the Air Conditioning Contractor’s of America and has superior filtration over a washable filter.
- We WILL not provide a washable filter like our competition. These washable ‘Rock Catchers’ are just that, rock catchers, not dust and particle catchers. They have no MERV Rating and need to be cleaned every thirty days. Pleated filters can be changed every ninety days and need to be the customers responsibility between maintenance appointments. We will be happy to advise you on the proper pleated filter options to order if you are unsure.
- Inspecting all visible duct-work for leaks, separations, and microbial growth.
- Checking for leaks within supply and return plenums on air handler.
- Inspection of evaporator coil and blower housing inside your Air Handler.
- Sanitize your air handler with an HVAC approved sanitizing chemical on EVERY MAINTENANCE VISIT.
- Clean and flush your drain line and algaecide tablets to your primary drain pan to prevent future algae buildup.
- Inspect and run test heater.
- Run air conditioning system and take a temperature split (to verify the proper temperature coming from the vents).
- Checking the amperage draw on all motors and compressor. This ensures the unit is not using too much electricity and is operating inside of the manufacturer’s specifications.
- Cleaning condenser coil and cabinet (outside unit).
- Check suction and liquid line refrigerant levels to ensure the system has the optimal level of refrigerant.
- Inspect all safety equipment like float switches, surge arrestors, time delays, breakers and disconnects.
- Inspect electrical connections and tighten if needed.
- Inspect copper line sets and insulation.
- Give recommendations on things to further the life span of the system IF NEEDED.
- Leave a service record of the visit either electronically via email or on paper if preferred with ACCURATE readings and HONEST advice on areas of improvement.
