But, the question here is, when to schedule it?

According to our maintenance expert: we suggest you schedule your air conditioner maintenance at least once a year. While monthly tune-up and inspections guarantee its well-being, annual maintenance is enough too. Also, selecting the right month time for the maintenance is as important as the maintenance process itself.

We recommend scheduling your ac maintenance during the spring and early summer season. 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. So, 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. HVAC experts stress this point quite often. And as given above, we also know its importance quite clearly. But the other thing that the experts are talking a lot these days is about the undertrained maintenance of the air conditioner.

Our ac maintenance technicians frequently report to us the case of ac malfunction due to interference by an under-skilled person. 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 do the steps mentioned above.

For insight, we have listed below the proper air conditioning steps that 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 fin 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
