Maintenance Checklist

Maintain your equipment to prevent future problems and unwanted costs. Keep your cooling and heating system at peak performance by having a contractor do annual pre-season check-ups. Contractors get busy once summer and winter come, so it's best to check the cooling system in the spring and the heating system in the fall. To remember, you might plan the check-ups around the time changes in the spring and fall.

  • A typical maintenance check-up should include everything to make sure that your equipment is working at its peak performance and is safe for your family.
  • Check thermostat settings to ensure the cooling and heating system keeps you comfortable when you are home and saves energy while you are away.
  • Tighten all electrical connections and measure voltage and current on motors. Faulty electrical connections can cause unsafe operation of your system and reduce the life of major components.
  • Lubricate all moving parts. Parts that lack lubrication cause friction in motors and increases the amount of electricity you use.
  • Check and inspect the condensate drain in your central air conditioner, furnace and/or heat pump (when in cooling mode).
  • Check controls of the system to ensure proper and safe operation. Check the starting cycle of the equipment to ensure the system starts, operates, and shuts off properly.
  • Clean evaporator and condenser air conditioning coils. Dirty coils reduce the system's ability to cool your home and cause the system to run longer, increasing energy costs and reducing the life of the equipment.
  • Check your central air conditioner's refrigerant level and adjust if necessary. Too much or too little refrigerant will make your system less efficient increasing energy costs and reducing the life of the equipment.
  • Clean and adjust blower components to provide proper system airflow for greater comfort levels. Airflow problems can reduce your system's efficiency by up to 15 percent.
  • Indoor quality inspections to make sure you are getting the most out of your system
  • Check all gas connections, gas pressure, burner combustion and heat exchanger. Improperly operating gas connections are a fire hazard and can contribute to health problems. A dirty burner or cracked heat exchanger causes improper burner operation. Either can cause the equipment to operate less safely and efficiently.
  • Check gas sensors and ignitors to make sure that the correct amp draw is correct

Your HVAC System's Dirty Secret

Alright, folks, it's time to talk about something that usually stays hidden behind the scenes in our world. It's like a "dark and dirty" secret – and yes, I do mean "dirty."

You might think the number one reason for your comfort system throwing in the towel is its age, brand, a stroke of lightning, or maybe even a bit too much thermostat tweaking. But here's the big reveal: the top culprit behind system failure is good old dirt.

Now, I get it, you're probably wondering why you've never heard this before. The reason is quite simple. Buying a new system can cost you a small fortune, while a maintenance program to prevent system meltdowns is just a fraction of the cost. You do the math!

At American Star, we consider it our ethical duty to give you the lowdown on how to

A) Keep your money in your pocket,

B) Save your precious time,

C) Spare you the hassle and headaches.

We've got something way better up our sleeves than waiting for a system breakdown – and it's called Preventative Maintenance! So, why not get ahead of the game and keep your comfort system running like a dream?
