We’ve written in the past about the importance of routine, professional air conditioning maintenance, and we really cannot stress enough just how important this is. It’s the only way you can ensure that you get the very best performance from your home cooling system. To help you better understand the importance of this service, we’ve shared a brief list below of some of the tasks your HVAC professional will provide when they come to perform your AC maintenance.
Clean and Adjust Blower Component
This will help ensure that your air conditioning system will be able to continue distributing conditioned air throughout your home reliably. Otherwise you could end up with uneven cooling throughout your living space due to a compromised blower.
Lubricate Moving Parts
Over the years, lubrication wears down and as a result the components of your air conditioner start rubbing against each other, creating wear and tear. Lubricating these parts at least once a year will eliminate excessive friction that your air conditioner could otherwise experience.
Tighten Electrical Connections
This helps your air conditioner to function as safely as possible. The voltage and current on your AC motors should also be measured at this time. This job is one that should only be done by professionals to protect your personal safety as well as your home.
Check Refrigerant Levels
Many homeowners mistakenly believe that it’s normal to need to refill their refrigerant. Unfortunately not only is this untrue, ignoring a refrigerant leak can do serious damage to your air conditioning system.
Check System Controls
One more task your HVAC technicians will perform is to check your system controls for proper operation. This will ensure that your air conditioner is able to start up okay and that it will run and shut down as you need it to.
