Regular maintenance of your air conditioning system is essential to keep it running optimally and reliably. While you can handle some tasks yourself, professional AC repair and maintenance should be scheduled at least once annually with Zion Custom Air to guarantee your system remains in top condition.
AC maintenance is a necessary task that your HVAC technician performs to inspect, clean, and make necessary adjustments to your air conditioning system, so it runs optimally. In this article, we'll go over some of the key tasks involved in AC upkeep.
Your air conditioning system relies heavily on both these coils for efficiency. The evaporator coil absorbs heat from inside your home, while the condenser releases that energy outside. Over time, these coils may become dirty, leading to reduced efficiency and an increase in energy usage from your system.
Your HVAC technician will inspect these coils for dirt and debris during AC maintenance. If they are dirty, they'll clean them thoroughly to restore their efficiency.
Refrigerant is the substance your air conditioning system utilizes to absorb and release heat. If it's low on refrigerant, it could reduce cooling capacity and make your system work harder than necessary - leading to higher energy bills and a shorter system lifespan. At regular AC maintenance appointments, your HVAC technician will check the refrigerant level in your system. If necessary, they'll add more to replenish it back to its proper level.
Your air conditioning system relies on a complex electrical system to run optimally. Over time, these connections may become loose or damaged, leading to system malfunction or even safety hazards. Inspect the secure connections before they become an issue! Your HVAC technician will inspect the electrical connections in your system during AC maintenance to identify any loose or damaged ones and make necessary repairs so that your system remains secure and operating optimally.
Your air conditioning system's condensate pan is where water collects when cooling the air. Unfortunately, over time this pan can become dirty which allows mold or mildew to grow, creating unpleasant odors and potential health risks. Your HVAC technician will empty and clean the condensate pan to eliminate any dirt or debris that has built up. They also inspect for signs of mold or mildew growth and treat it if necessary.
Fans and compressor motors are critical elements of your air conditioning system that help circulate air, keeping it running efficiently. Over time, these components may become dirty or worn out, decreasing their efficiency and forcing your system to work harder than necessary.
AC maintenance by your HVAC technician involves cleaning and lubricating the fans and compressor motor to guarantee they run optimally, helping extend the lifespan of your system and reduce energy bills.
Your thermostat is an integral component of your air conditioning system that regulates indoor temperature. If it's malfunctioning, it could cause your system to run inefficiently or even stop functioning altogether. At regular AC maintenance appointments, your HVAC technician will check the accuracy of your thermostat readings. If they detect that it's not functioning correctly, they'll repair or replace it to ensure your system runs optimally.
