Air Conditioning Maintenance FAQs

How do I know if my air conditioner needs maintenance?

Your air conditioner may need maintenance if it's not cooling efficiently, making unusual noises, emitting strange odors, or if your energy bills have unexpectedly increased. Other signs include weak airflow, the unit turning on and off more frequently than normal, or visible leaks around the AC unit. These symptoms can indicate that the system is working harder than it should, potentially due to dirty filters, leaks, or mechanical issues, all of which can be addressed with proper maintenance.

Can AC maintenance impact indoor air quality?

Proper AC maintenance helps ensure efficient air filtration, capturing airborne particles like dust, pollen, and dander that can reduce indoor air quality. It also prevents mold growth by controlling moisture levels and includes inspection/cleaning of ductwork to remove any accumulated debris. Additionally, well-maintained systems operate more effectively, improving airflow and ventilation to prevent stale air buildup. Regular filter changes, coil cleaning, and overall system tune-ups enhance the AC's ability to circulate and purify the air, creating a healthier indoor environment for occupants.

What Does AC Maintenance Include?

While a working AC system is a modern-day marvel, ensuring it stays that way requires a little upkeep. AC maintenance is not just a luxury; it's a necessity. Regular maintenance not only keeps your home cool but also helps your system operate efficiently, extends its lifespan, and can prevent costly breakdowns. It's your ticket to a chilled haven in the scorching summer months.

Here's a glimpse of what you can expect during a professional AC maintenance service:

Refrigerant Check: An incorrect refrigerant level can cause inefficiencies and damage to your system. Our experts will ensure it's at the right level.

Thermostat Calibration: Accurate temperature control starts with a well-calibrated thermostat. We'll make sure it's functioning correctly.

Electrical Connection Inspection: Loose connections and faulty wiring can pose safety hazards. We'll inspect and tighten any electrical connections as needed.

Blower Component Check: The blower components need to be adjusted and cleaned for efficient airflow.

Ductwork Inspection: Leaky or blocked ducts can compromise air quality and efficiency. We'll inspect your ductwork and recommend repairs or cleaning if necessary.

Lubrication: Proper lubrication of moving parts is essential for reducing friction and prolonging the life of your system.
