Is your air conditioner or heat pump not performing properly? Are you not feeling that refreshing cold air from your vents as strong as before? Does your inside air feel humid? Did you notice a spike in your electric bills? These are signs that your system might need a tune-up. A simple 17-point tune-up many times will take care of the problem and help prevent future problems.
Your heating and cooling equipment need routine maintenance in order to operate efficiently at maximum capacity. Lack of maintenance could cause major problems, such as a clogged drain line backing water into your home, and shortens the life of your equipment. Our certified technicians will perform the tune-up fast and will give an honest appraisal of the overall health of your system.
Consider these facts
- A very thin build up of dirt on a cooling coil (about half of 1/16″) can result in a dramatic increase in energy consumption. 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. Do you know if your coils are clean?
- 75% of installed air conditioners may have an incorrect amount of refrigerant. Too much or too little refrigerant will make your system less efficient increasing energy costs and reducing the life of the equipment. Do you know if your system is charged correctly?
- Proper system airflow allows for greatest comfort levels in your home. Airflow problems can reduce your system’s efficiency by up to 15 percent and are the primary cause of blower motor failures. Do you know if airflow is obstructed?
With an annual tune-up, we can help keep your unit operating at optimum capacity. Our inspection covers the following procedures:
- Check refrigerant charge (refrigerant is an extra charge if needed)
- Inspect condenser fan motor and capacitors
- Check condenser contactor points
- Inspect media filters (replacement extra cost)
- Check blower motor compartment
- Check thermostat for proper operation and calibration
- Check low-voltage wiring and connections
- Check disconnect box for proper rating and condition
- Conduct evaluation of A/C system for proper operation and efficiency.
- Check compressor amperage and condition
- Tighten electrical connections where necessary
- Inspect condenser coil and wash off with water (If hose available, does not include disassembly)
- Visually inspect evaporator coil (if accessible)
- Measure temperature variation on supply/return
- Check condensate drains and switches. (Clearing clogged drain lines is an additional charge)
- Inspect ductwork and overall system design
- Customer consultation on condition of equipment, design and overall operation
- And a smile!
