Air Conditioning Maintenance

Why Maintenance is so Important:

Keeping a well maintained air conditioning system is a lot like maintaining your car. Cars require oil changes, tire rotations, washes, and other tune ups in order to keep the car running in its best condition. Any of these tune ups might seem unnecessary at times, as do A/C tune ups, but regular maintenance is much less expensive than replacing the entire car. This is much like maintaining your air conditioning system. With regular tune ups and maintenance checks you will extend the life of the equipment as well as avoiding high replacement and repair costs. Maintaining your A/C system will also help with efficiency. A system that is running more efficiently will use less power and cost you less each month on your electric bill. Cleaning and maintaining your system will also help with air quality. Poor air quality can cause allergies, asthma, as well as other health problems if not treated properly. Making sure that your unit is regularly cleaned and maintained will ensure that your air quality is at its best year round. BHI recommends a minimum of two maintenance services per year and each service includes:

  • Test A/C System Operations
  • Check Voltage/amperage
  • Clean blower assembly
  • Lubricate Components as required
  • Wash/Replace Filters as Required
  • Inspect duct work and check air flow
  • Check thermostat operation/program and replace batteries as required
  • Clear Condensate Line
  • Test all wiring and connections
  • Check temperature splits
  • Check for signs of leaks
  • Clean condenser coils
  • Check refrigerant operating pressure
  • Test compressor Contactor
  • Test Capacitor
  • Confirm proper return air
