Schedule an AC Checkup – Spring is
Around the Corner

Cold Home-Boiler Troubles

As temperatures begin to warm and winter slips away, it’s time to start thinking about cooling season. Spring is the perfect time to schedule an A/C checkup, as delaying or skipping preventive maintenance can have dire consequences for both your equipment and your energy bills.

Why Spring?

While you can schedule A/C maintenance at any point throughout cooling season, springtime is the most beneficial for several reasons:

    • Your HVAC contractor will be more likely to work around your schedule at this time of year, as opposed to mid-summer when you may have to work around their busy schedule that’s full of emergency repairs.

    • Having your cooling equipment tuned up before the season begins means it will be ready to go when you need it, and in prime working order.

Benefits of a Professional A/C Checkup

  • Dirt and wear are your A/C’s two worst enemies, and your HVAC contractor will address both issues during his appointment.

  • Your contractor has the right tools and equipment to access all components of your system, and a trained eye to detect problems or potential issues, preventing bigger problems down the road.

  • A clean, well-maintained A/C system runs more efficiently and effectively, reducing energy costs and increasing your level of comfort.

What to Expect

A standard checklist for an A/C checkup may include the following:

  • Change the air filte,r if needed

  • Inspection of all fuses and wiring

  • Testing of the system and all controls for proper operation

  • Tightening of any electrical connections

  • Inspection and cleaning of all coils

  • Checking the amperage and voltage of all motors

  • Inspection of the bearings and lubrication where needed of any moving parts

  • Testing of thermostat operation

  • Inspect the condensate drain, treating the line with an algaecide solution if needed

  • Check the refrigerant level, making any necessary adjustments

  • Adjust and clean blower components

  • Inspect visible ductwork for leaks

  • Look for signs of mold on the coils or in the drain pan
