Schedule a Spring Check-up for Your Air Conditioner

spring-clean-your-air-conditioner

Spring may have just begun, but summer and its sweltering temperatures will be here before you know it. When the temperatures rise, there is nothing better than relaxing in the air conditioning in your Delaware home. But is your air conditioner ready for summer?

Scheduling a spring check-up for your air conditioner has several benefits:

  • Convenience: Spring is a slow season for your air conditioner, so it is the ideal time to have it worked on.
  • Prevention saves money: A routine check-up can discover small problems before they become big problems. For example, it is much cheaper to fix a refrigerant leak than to replace a whole compressor that burned out because of chronically low refrigerant.
  • Lower utility bills: Making sure your air conditioner is running at peak efficiency can translate to savings on your electric bill.

What Does a Check-up Involve?

During a routine check-up you can expect your Delaware cooling company to do the following:

  • Inspect the thermostat to make sure your unit isn’t working overtime.
  • Tighten all electrical connections and measure voltage and current on the motors. Faulty connections can cause unsafe operation of your system and reduce the life of major components.
  • Lubricate all moving parts. Friction in motors can increase the amount of electricity you use.
  • Check and inspect the condensate drain. A plugged drain can cause water damage in the house and affect indoor humidity levels.
  • Run a test cycle to check for proper operation. Ensure the system starts, operates, and shuts off properly.
  • Clean condenser coil. Dirty coils reduce the cooling ability of the unit and cause the system to run longer, increasing energy costs and reducing the life of the equipment.
  • Check for proper refrigerant levels and check for leaks.
  • Replace 1” filter.
