Why is seasonal AC service necessary?
Air conditioners have many different parts that require regular maintenance to run efficiently during the service life of the equipment. Depending on the brand, you may be required to get a yearly AC tune-up to comply with the manufacturer's warranty program.
How often do air conditioners need maintenance?
Ideally your air conditioner housing, coils, vents, fins and ducts get cleaned once at the beginning and again at the end of the season.
Most people get their AC tuned up once a year in the spring so it's ready to go when summer arrives.
What does an AC tune up include?
A technician will thoroughly inspect and evaluate your air conditioner and cooling system.
During your AC tune-up we’ll:
- Assess the overall condition
- Check refrigerant levels & pressure
- Look for any leaks
- Examine all electrical parts & connections
- Tighten or lubricate mechanical parts if necessary
- Observe operation of blower motor & belt
- Clean blower components if needed
- Measure airflow
- Measure air temperature at supply & return
- Check oil & air filters
- Test startup function
- Examine & clean condenser/evaporator coils
Don’t wait for a heatwave to test your air conditioner – call Prompt Heating & Air Conditioning to book preventive maintenance and stay cool all summer long.
How long does an A/C tune up take?
It depends on the state of your air conditioner and what we find during the inspection, but generally around an hour. If repairs, replacement parts or refilling refrigerant is needed it could take longer.
What happens if you skip AC maintenance?
Skipping the yearly tune-up means a steady decline in performance and a steady rise in energy consumption.
More dust and dirt builds up in the filters, which means the air conditioner has to work harder to cool your home. So you'll probably have higher energy bills, it can get noisier, and parts can wear out faster.
Skipping the annual tune-up also gives minor issues a chance to become bigger, more expensive problems to fix later. Over time, if AC maintenance is neglected, the unit will have a shorter lifespan.
