When to schedule it?

According to our maintenance expert we suggest you schedule your air conditioner maintenance at least once a year. While a yearly tune-up and inspection decrease the chance of any issues coming up, two maintenance check ups, one in the spring, and one during summer are ideal so your system is in check right before and during the hot seasons.

During this time period the weather, environment, and timing favor the spring season for air conditioner maintenance to achieve the best result. This lies in the presence of oil in your AC unit, which needs a favorable temperature to work. The temperature is warm enough during the spring season for the oil workup hence its suitability.

Also, try to avoid the winter seasons for your AC maintenance. During winters, the temperature falls very low, limiting the work of oil present in an AC unit as mentioned above. It can also damage your air conditioner. It is always a better idea to avoid the winter season.

Experts on AC Maintenance and Tune-up

There is no doubt about the importance of AC maintenance for its durability.

Our AC maintenance technicians frequently report AC malfunction due to an under-skilled person or contractor performing the job. While we still encourage homeowners to timely tune up their air conditioners by themselves, this surely doesn’t mean going pro with the maintenance steps without proper knowledge. We suggest you only perform the steps mentioned above.

For insight, we have listed below the proper air conditioning steps that only expert AC technicians should do:

  1. Turn off the electric power
  2. Clean the outside of the external unit and dust it off
  3. Clean the air conditioner fan and condenser fan, and AC vents
  4. Clean the outside of the external unit and the evaporator coil
  5. measure the flow of air through the evaporator coil
  6. Clear the evaporator drain
  7. Change or clean the blower filter as per necessity
