Discover how a maintenance agreement can help you get your air conditioner summer ready.
Don’t dismiss HVAC maintenance agreements when you’re making your spring cleaning list. Nothing is better for your air conditioner than a little regular TLC. Curious what’s on the maintenance list?
What Gets Checked?
Air conditioner maintenance should include certain levels of inspection, adjustments, and cleaning when done properly. Here’s a list of the basics that should be included:
- Check the filter, and clean or change if dirty
- Clean and inspect cooling coils
- Lubricate all moving parts
- Check fluid levels and fluid pressure
- Drain and clean condensate line
- Check drainage for blockage, clean drain area
- Test electrical and inspect wiring
- Test thermostat and adjust if necessary
- Run system test to ensure proper performance
Consequences of Lack of Maintenance
Regular maintenance for your HVAC system isn’t different than regular tune-ups for your car. They keep it running smoothly, but more than that, they prevent future repairs and breakdowns.
What can happen if regular maintenance and cleaning is skipped? Consequences could include the potential for the system to overheat, for small problems to get worse and require extensive and costly repairs, and a less efficient cooling system, which results in higher energy use and higher energy bills.
Effects of a Maintenance Plan
Having a plan in place for regular maintenance ensures your heating and cooling system is on the schedule for regular service, inspection, cleaning, and maintenance. This will help make sure your air conditioner is running smoothly before the summer heat sets in. It will also help your A/C run more efficiently and effectively, saving you money and keeping you cool.
