Air Conditioner Maintenance

It’s important to take care of your air conditioning unit so it lasts longer, works better, and helps you keep energy costs down. Air conditioner maintenance ensures that your unit is efficient and reliable so it will serve you for years to come. When your conditioned air isn’t cold enough or is humid, it’s time to schedule air conditioner maintenance service. Call Aire Serv® today for air conditioner maintenance service you can count on.

Air Conditioner Maintenance Checklist

Ensure reliable operation by getting preventative maintenance for your AC unit every spring. Removing brush and debris is easy, but you should hire a professional for air conditioner maintenance if you don’t feel comfortable cleaning the coils or lubricating moving parts.

Here are a few tips for preventing AC problems :

  • Remove brush and debris near the unit.
  • Clean the condenser coils every spring.
  • Replace any HVAC air filters.
  • Check for loose contacts or electric connections.
  • Lubricate motors and bearings.
  • Recharge refrigerant.
  • Ensure the condensate drain is clear.
  • Age – If your furnace is well over a decade old, it could be time to replace it.

  • Repair frequency – Is this the second or third repair this year? Is a looming repair close to half the cost of a new system? Stop throwing away money and put your funds toward a high-efficiency replacement.

  • Energy bills – Rising energy costs could be one reason your heating bills are higher than they were a few years ago, but it’s also likely due to your aging furnace losing its ability to perform efficiently. A steady increase in energy bills is a sign that your furnace is past its prime.

  • Comfort – Higher energy bills combined with diminished indoor comfort is incredibly frustrating. Uneven temperatures, trouble keeping up with demand, and cold air exiting supply registers are signs of a pending furnace replacement.

Professional Air Conditioner Inspection

Another important part of maintaining your AC unit is scheduling an annual maintenance checkupair conditioner inspection—ideally any air conditioner maintenance service should occur before the cooling season begins—in order to make sure it is working as efficiently as possible. The Aire Serv Total Comfort Tune-up will ensure that your air conditioner is in tip-top working shape and that it will last for years to come. Plus, our experts will address any smaller problems that could grow into larger, much more and potentially costly issues in the future.

What Type of AC Unit Do I Have?

There are several types of AC units. Air conditioner maintenance requirements will depend on the type of unit you own.

Common AC unit types include:

  • Split system units, which make use of an indoor and outdoor unit.
  • Ductless split systems, which use indoor and outdoor units but without a duct system.
  • Packaged air conditioners, which sit outside.
