Air Conditioner Maintenance

Air conditioners are one of the many things that people take for granted until the dreaded day arrives when your system breaks down and needs repairs. No one enjoys living without their air conditioning in Florida, even if it’s only for a day or two. So as spring comes to an end and the high heat of summer threatens to rear its ugly head, everyone who lives in Florida should familiarize themselves with the essential nature of air conditioning maintenance.

What’s Included in an AC Maintenance Visit?

After arriving, your Friendly AC technician will perform a diagnostic check to determine if your system is running at peak capacity and offer any suggestions on how to improve the efficiency of your unit, and improve the air quality in your home. Your technician will also:

  • Change your air filter
  • Clean your HVAC unit’s condensate drain and tray
  • Verify that your thermostat is working
  • Measure the current and voltage of your ACs blower motor and fans
  • Clean the air handler and system fans
  • Inspect the air plenum for loose duct connections and leaks
  • Adjust all belts
  • Lubricate pulleys

Benefits of Air Conditioner Maintenance

  • Increased Lifespan – Like with anything else in life, air conditioners have a lifespan. If you don’t take care of your system, get your ducts cleaned regularly, and ensure that all of the moving parts are in working condition, it will lower the life span of the entire unit.
  • Improved Efficiency – When a unit is kept in tip top shape, you can trust that it’s going to work better and more efficiently. This requires maintenance to be performed on a routine basis and for the air filter to be cleaned regularly.
  • Enhanced Comfort – When an AC unit is working properly, it allows you to feel cooler in your home compared to the heat outside. Apart from just the heat, a properly working air conditioner can keep dust particles from entering a room. Particles like this can cause all sorts of issues, from causing allergies to act up and making asthma to get worse.
  • Fewer Breakdowns – By scheduling routine maintenance, a professional will be examining the system for you at the beginning of every cooling season. This allows the technician to find small, easy fixes that can help you avoid costly repairs or breakdowns later on.
