Your home’s HVAC system requires regular preventative maintenance in order to ensure effective, trouble free operation of the system along with peak performance of your HVAC system year round. Pre-season AC maintenance is important to your HVAC system in that it helps to avoid any type of a system failure, whether in severe hot or cold temperatures when homeowners need the system most. Pre-season AC maintenance can also keep your energy bill under control.
Surely your home is your sanctuary and safe haven in the world, especially when the temperatures outside are extremely hot and you have a properly functioning HVAC system installed. However, once the cold winter months have come to a close, it is important to realize that before you can turn on your air conditioner in the hot summer months you must have a thorough inspection of the system performed. In order to ensure that your central air conditioning system is working effectively and efficiently, we strongly suggest you contact our professional technicians here at South Nashville Heating and Cooling and schedule your pre-season AC maintenance appointment.
What you Should do Before Firing Up Your AC System this Summer
Before turning on your air conditioning system this summer, be sure to schedule an appointment with the professionals here at South Nashville Heating and Cooling to perform your pre-season AC maintenance checkup. A simple inspection of your condenser, which is your outside air conditioning unit, should be performed for starters. The condenser should have been covered throughout the winter months, so we will need to remove the cover first, then remove any types of growths or other objects that are within a foot of the unit, and finally spray the coils with a hose in order to remove any debris that has gotten caught up in the fins.
As for pre-season maintenance on the inside unit, our technicians will perform a thorough amp reading of all motors along with OHM readings of the motors as well. We will also perform capacitance readings of all capacitors ensuring that all motors and capacitors are properly working and will deliver peak performance. Further, we will adjust refrigerant pressures, inspect all wiring and electronics and clear the drain lines as needed.
Continuing with our pre-season AC maintenance service we will give focus to cleaning and clearing all the coils. This is a key maintenance component that contributes to a properly and effectively functioning HVAC system because it provides for the smooth flow of air through the outdoor coils which ultimately will remove any heat from the home. We will also thoroughly clean both your condenser and your evaporator coils so as to present with a system that is capable of handling all the cooling needs of your home and family. In addition to these primary tasks, we will also clean all your HVAC panels, shroud and clean away any debris that has accumulated in the compartments as well.
