It’s almost springtime, and here at Absolute Heat & Air, we’re getting ready for the season. As you prepare to clean your home in anticipation of the warmer season ahead, it’s a good time to get your air conditioner ready for heavier use.
Avoiding Problems with Spring Maintenance
Did you know that the major reason air conditioners fail to last their lifespan is from lack of maintenance? Don’t let forgetfulness cost you money and inconvenience. We can make spring cleaning your air conditioner easier than you thought! In about an hour’s time, we will make sure your air conditioner is running efficiently and not wasting money on energy bills. With an average lifespan of 15 years, an air conditioner is an investment worth protecting.
What can you expect during a maintenance appointment?
Here’s what one of our technicians will do during an air conditioning tune up:
  • Check the refrigerant levels and check for any refrigerant leaks. If you have a leak, you’ll need to get it sealed. Having low refrigerant means your AC won’t perform well when you start relying on it more often this spring.
  • Test electrical connections and tighten them if needed. Winter weather may have caused parts to shift, so spring is a good time to get this checked.
  • Make sure the evaporator and condenser coils are free from obstructions, clean, and working properly. Both coils should be able to absorb and release heat.
  • Clean the drain and condensate pan so your air conditioner won’t overflow with moisture from its evaporator coils.
  • Inspect, clean, and lubricate motors and fans to avoid mechanical stress that can cause them to wear out over time.
  • Test the thermostat and make sure it’s reading correctly, and recalibrate it if it’s not.
  • Check on compressor performance and lubricate it to keep it running smoothly.
  • Replace the air filter and show you how to do this, if you aren’t already on it. Remember to change it every one to three months depending on your usage, allergies, and dust levels around your home.
