What Happens During an AC Maintenance Checkup?

To keep your AC system running at its peak performance, it’s important to have regular preventative maintenance. Even if your system is working fine now, a simple fix could turn into an expensive problem if no one catches it. At Engineered Air, we are dedicated to keeping your home comfortable and cool, and saving you money. That’s why we offer preventative maintenance for your entire system.

What to Expect During a Check-Up

When a professional comes over to maintenance your AC unit, they will conduct a thorough examination of your entire system. This way they will be able to detect any potential issues with your system. Maintenance will also protect your AC unit from future problems. Your AC maintenance will include:

  • Filter Cleaning
  • Condensate Drain Cleaning
  • Refrigerant Level Check
  • Electrical Connections and Components Check
  • Fan Control Check
  • Condenser Coils Wash
  • Motors Lubricated
  • Thermostat Calibration

All this, plus an overall system performance check, will be conducted during your maintenance check up.

Why Do I Need Maintenance

Many people believe that the only time they need to call in an AC and heating professional is once their system has stopped working. Unfortunately, once your AC system has broken, you are most likely facing expensive repairs. Maintenance can prevent a quick fix from turning into an expensive headache. Just some of the benefits of regular preventative maintenance include:

  • Extended Unit Life
  • Improved Air Quality
  • Saved Money
  • Increased Personal Comfort
  • Lowered Utility Bill

How Often Does My AC Need Maintenance

The general rule of thumb is twice a year. Once in the fall and once in the spring. This way your home is ready for hot summers, and colder winters. In Florida, we put a lot of stress on our AC units in the summer, so it’s extra important to have you AC checked in the spring.
