Even if you don’t use our service we feel like it’s important to know what to expect from a professional HVAC technician for maintenance. The technician should always:
•Check for the correct amount of refrigerant
•Test for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector
•Capture any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, instead of illegally releasing it into the atmosphere.
•Check for seal and duct leakage in central systems.
•Measure airflow through the evaporator coil
•Verify the correct electric control sequence and make sure that the heating system and cooling system cannot operate simultaneously.
•Oil motors and check belts for tightness and wear
•Check accuracy of the thermostat
Air Conditioner Filters
The most important maintenance task that will ensure your air conditioning unit runs in its optimal condition is to routinely replace your air filters. Clogged, dirty filters block airflow which makes your ac unit run very inefficiently and will cost you money in wasted energy used and will wear your unit down much quicker. The need to change your air filter is dependent on how often you run your air conditioning unit.
Air Conditioner Coils
The second thing to look at is the air conditioner’s evaporator coil and condenser coil. A clean filter does help prevent the evaporator coil from going bad quickly. Over time the coil will collect dirt, this dirt causes the coil to get insulated and reduces the coil’s ability to absorb heat. The only way to avoid this problem is to clean it at least once a year.
Outdoor condenser coils are known to become extremely dirty or dusty especially if there is foliage nearby your unit. You will be able to easily see the coil and will notice if there is dirt collecting on its fins. You should always try to keep the area around the unit free of any debris or foliage the rule of thumb is to trim the foliage back at least 2 feet this allows for adequate airflow around the condenser.
In the winter we advise you to cover the outdoor unit with a central air conditioner this will help to protect the unit from winter weather and debris. And can expand the lifespan of your unit.
