Check and Clean Condenser Coil

Foreign material on the condenser coil reduces the system's capacity to remove heat from the house so your air conditioning system must run longer, increasing energy consumption.

Check and adjust blower components

Proper adjustment, cleanliness of blower and components are necessary for adequate air flow to assure proper capacity and equipment reliability.

Check condensate drain (clean if necessary)

A clogged drain can create considerable water damage, as well as affect indoor humidity levels.

Check operating pressures for proper refrigerant charge

Improper refrigerant charges either too much or too little could damage the compressor and could cause high electric bills through a curtailment of system efficiency.

Check air filters

A dirty filter can substantially reduce the air flow over the evaporator coil, resulting in inadequate cooling of your home.  A Dirty filter could cause high energy usage and compressor damage.

Check thermostat calibration

An improperly calibrated thermostat will call for more or less cooling than desired.  The former will cost more money, the latter will cost you comfort.

Lubricate all moving parts where necessary

Poor lubrication causes drag in the motor and drive shaft, thereby requiring more electricity to overcome resistance.  The lack of lubrication can ruin bearings and burn out a motor.

Check safety controls where applicable

This is very essential for the proper protection of the unit!

Check for correct air flow

One way to assure maximum efficiency of your cooling unit.

Check all electrical connections

Resistance caused by loose connections will create excessive heat at the point, causing damage to the unit.  Loose connections cause improper voltage to various components, making them either inoperative or causing eventual failure.

Check starting capacities

Assure that your system will start and operate when needed.

Bottom line all these can add up to your system costing you money.

Warning! These Checks should only be done by a licensed trained Contractor. Serious damage or serious harm can be a result of an unskilled person attempting to clean the air conditioning system.
