Most people hope and pray that their air conditioning system will go on for a long time and not cost them any expenses beyond power supply and/or fuel. However, unfortunately, in the real world that’s not a good method of AC maintenance. Here we will review some things you should know that will help your system run smoothly for a long time to come. With the right service and maintenance, your system should not need more than the occasional minor repair from time to time.
First and foremost is the bare minimum information you need to know about service and repair of your AC system. You should have your system checked every year for minor issues. This way, if there is a small problem, you can hire them to repair it and then it does not turn into a big problem. This should be done every year just prior to the cooling season. At this appointment, your service company should be checking for Freon levels, to ensure there are no leaks. If the level is low, there may be a leak, and it should be repaired prior to a refill. They should also be checking the filters, thermostat, condenser, oil motors, clean the coils, if needed, and inspect all electrical components.
Now let’s review some things to do at the start of the cooling season. First, check your unit for proper working order before it’s a sweltering hot day. Make sure nothing is on or around the unit. Change or clean your filters regularly, and check for loose screws around the panels. Of course, make sure your thermostat is set into the “cooling” mode. Sometimes, the most obvious eludes us. If your unit is not cooling, this is the time to contact your company for service and repair. It’s recommended to get an annual checkup, but if you don’t do this, it’s best to get in touch with your service company before everybody else does.
Many people would like to maintain their unit on their own as well, to avoid paying for service and repair. The steps in a professional check up of your unit would include first verifying that the thermostat is operating properly, followed by a filter inspection. If the filter is dirty, clean or replace. Next would be the electrical inspection, followed by checking the heat exchanger for cracks, which are environmentally unfriendly to your lungs. Finally, air flow is checked for efficiency.
