Air Conditioning & Cooling Tune Up Service

Air Conditioning Tune Up

What you need to know to stop your air conditioner or heat pump from losing its cool.

No matter how energy-efficient your air conditioner was when it was installed, it can lose efficiency if not properly maintained. The good news is, it isn’t hard, time-consuming or expensive to do the kind of upkeep that can help your unit last for years:

  • Change your air conditioning system's filters regularly. A clogged or improperly installed air filter makes your system work harder. So, if you forget to change your filters, you might notice you’re paying more for air conditioning that you’re not enjoying nearly as much.

  • Be sure not to block your floor, wall or ceiling vents. When drapes, furniture, toys or anything else blocks the vents, it will restrict the airflow—and decrease the air conditioning system’s efficiency and life span.

  • Check your air conditioning system's outside condensing unit periodically to make sure it isn’t covered up or clogged with leaves or debris. Give it space—at least a foot—by cutting back shrubs or tall grass. Air needs to flow in through the sides to cool the coil.

  • Check the air conditioning system's indoor evap coil drain system to make sure it isn’t clogged. Because your air conditioner removes humidity from your home during the cooling season, you should notice water trickling from the condensate drain of the indoor evap coil. Keep in mind that the drainage will be limited if you live in a very dry environment.

  • Don’t try to turn your home into an icebox. You shouldn’t run your air conditioning system in cooling mode when outdoor temperatures are lower than 55°F/12.78°C unless your outdoor unit is modified to handle cooling in colder weather.

  • Have a A+ service expert clean your indoor coil and replace your filters routinely. If you notice longer operating cycles and reduced energy efficiency, the coil could be to blame.

  • Check for water in the base of your air conditioning system's outdoor unit. It likely means the support base has settled or shifted since installation and is no longer level. If that’s the case, be sure to re-level it to assure proper drainage. Also check for standing water or ice under the unit in and arrange for it to drain away.

  • Consider having your ducts sealed or insulated. Air leaks can lead to wasted energy and an overworked air conditioner.

Think of it this way: By investing a little time and money in a Air Conditioning Tune Up, or our Annual Service Agreement, you will keep your system operating at peak performance, and you stand to save a lot in system repairs and energy bills.

During an air conditioner tune-up, our A+ service expert will :

      • Check your air conditioning system’s operation to determine its condition and if repairs or adjustments are needed.

      • Check refrigerant charge levels and air flow.

      • Make sure all your air conditioner electrical connections are sound and components are working properly.

      • Check for secure physical connections of all the air conditioner's individual parts.

      • Check and clean your air conditioning system's outdoor coils.

      • Check and clean the air conditioning system's indoor condensate drainage system.

      • Clean and adjust blower components.

      • Check the air conditioning system's filters, and replace or clean them, if needed.

      • Check and adjust thermostat.

      • Check the furnace or air handler for blower belt wear, tension & adjust.

      • Check voltage & amperage draw on all motors w/meter.

      • Check compressor contactor.

      • Visually inspect compressor and check amp draw.

      • Check start capacitor & potential relay.

      • Check pressure switch cut-out setting.

      • Install gauges & check the air conditioning system's operating pressures.

      • Check refrigerant (freon) level and advise if adjustments necessary.

      • Check air conditioning system's expansion valve & indoor coil temperatures.

      • Lubricate parts as needed.

      • Check the indoor evaporator coil and advise if dirty or if it needs cleaning.

      • Check the shape that the total air conditioning system is in and advise client or customer of discrepancies.
