Air Conditioning Service

Extend the life of your system with regular service

Do homeowners really need your air conditioner tuned up or serviced?

The short answer is, occasionally.

At least once every two or three years, even if everything seems to be working just fine.

Here’s what you get with an air conditioner tune-up:

  • We clean or replace your air filters.
  • Inspect coolant levels and pressure—to ensure your system runs at peak efficiency
  • Calibrate thermostat(s) and check proper cycle and temperature—to improve comfort and control
  • Inspect and tighten wiring, contacts, capacitors and relays—to avoid expensive repairs
  • Ensure the evaporator coil is clean
  • Ensure the condensate drain is clear
  • Inspect and clean your condensate pump, if you have one
  • Inspect and clean the condenser
  • Inspect the outdoor disconnect
  • Inspect the condenser fan motor and blades; lubricate if needed
  • Check compressor amps at startup

In between professional tune-ups, here are some things you can do to keep your air conditioner humming:

Always be sure to disconnect electricity to the unit before starting any work

  • Keep the outside condensing unit clear of leaves, sticks and debris
  • With electricity turned off, rinse the compressor using a garden hose
  • Change or clean the AC filters according to the manufacturer’s instructions
  • Check the fan belt tension and inspect hose connections for leaks and cracks
