Scheduling an annual AC tune-up is the best way to optimize your comfort, reduce energy use, and ensure your cooling equipment lasts for as long as possible. That’s because AC maintenance service can uncover and address minor issues with your system before they cause major problems. Here’s how and why.

The Basic Steps of AC Maintenance Service

What Does an AC Tune-Up Include? We’re focusing on “basic” steps because AC tune-ups should be customized to meet your system’s specific needs. Regardless of the special attention your air conditioner may need, here are some fundamentals you can expect with AC maintenance:

Internal and External AC System Cleaning

Dust, dander, pollen, and other air pollutants tend to build up in AC systems. This is because the unit works on a closed loop, endlessly circulating the air in your home. By clearing all of this mess out during maintenance service, our team can help restore airflow, improve air quality, and resolve other issues that can cause AC problems and breakdowns.

Performance Evaluations and Component Checks

Another crucial part of air conditioner maintenance is carefully looking over all of the moving and stationary parts within your system. A technician will check for any signs of damage, testing vital components for proper function. Some of the parts that will be inspected during this part of an AC tune-up service include the:

  • Compressor
  • Evaporator coils
  • Blower assembly

Lubrication for Moving Parts

As you use your AC system from day to day, lubricating moving parts is critical to preventing the damage that can arise from friction. By ensuring a system’s moving parts are well lubricated, our AC experts can keep your system in peak condition, so it works efficiently year after year.

Electrical Connection Checks

While not common with AC systems, electrical issues can be especially damaging and dangerous whenever they do arise. The electrical checks included in AC maintenance service involve ensuring all connections are properly secured. They also involve:

  • Checking the thermostat controls for accuracy and functionality
  • Making sure the system’s wiring and electrical components are not frayed or damaged
