As major advocates of protecting your HVAC system with routine maintenance and care, we touch on the subject frequently. Too many people view maintenance services as a luxury expense, but when you live in a harsh climate like ours, maintenance is essential. It is as critical as ensuring your vehicle is well-maintained, perhaps even more so. For the efficiency and efficacy of your air conditioner, maintenance is absolutely necessary. In addition to your system having a shorter lifespan, without maintenance, you can find yourself paying for unexpected repairs. Today, we at Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning would like to discuss professional maintenance.
Professional Execution During AC Maintenance
Experts will perform a wide range of functions that will help your cooling system run smoother when our air conditioning technicians come to your home to do maintenance. To make sure that the system is operating as it should and isn’t in need of any repair services, we run tests, make adjustments, and check refrigerant levels in addition to this.
AC Repair Can Be Expensive
Due to lack of maintenance, this is the case if it’s a small repair that was allowed to grow into a bigger emergency at least. Preventing these emergencies is a part of the purpose of maintenance. We look for small things like worn-out lubrication, loose components, and so on when we inspect your system. To help prevent up to 85% of the bigger repairs an AC system may ever need in its lifetime, this allows you to get repairs on your schedule right away.
Steps of Professional AC Inspection, Testing & Tune Up Maintenance
Below are a few of the steps we take with maintenance services.
AC Inspection & Testing: To make an adjustment to your system is one thing, and it is another to make sure that adjustment holds. After we adjust parts, we will test your system to make sure it’s working adequately. At this point, this is when we will alert you to any repair needs the system might have.
Moving Parts are Cleaned & Lubricated: AC systems are not just big ice boxes—in fact, there is no ice involved at all. They have complex components that each require different levels of attention. Components like ball bearings and motor bearings need lubrication to prevent friction. Screws need tightening. Electrical components need checking and tightening where necessary.
Refrigerant Recharge: The refrigerant in your air conditioner is the component that makes the cooling process possible. Upon manufacturing, your system is supplied with enough refrigerant to ideally last its entire lifespan. If your system starts losing refrigerant, then it means there is a leak. During maintenance, we can recharge (this means refill) your refrigerant, but you’ll also want to have our professionals find the source of the leak so it can be repaired, and you’ll be less likely to suffer from refrigerant loss in your system again.
The efficiency of your air conditioner is ensured with every step we take during maintenance. The more efficiently, and more affordably, your system can operate, the more attention we give to your energy consumption and your system’s cooling output levels.
