For the small amount of money it costs to schedule a professional tune-up, the return on your investment can be huge. Besides helping avoid unexpected breakdowns, tune-ups are important for helping your unit recover lost efficiency, operate more safely, increase the overall lifespan of the unit, improve your overall level of comfort, and reduce your operating expenses. Ideally your heating and air conditioning system should be inspected at least once a year.
Trained Service technicians will perform a 60-90 minute tune-up and professional cleaning including the following procedures:
• Blower Motor – measure amperage and voltage for proper operation • Thermostat – test for proper operation, calibrate, and level • Cleaning existing air filter (as needed) • Bearing – inspect for wear and lubricate • Inspect indoor coil if accessible • Confirm proper return air and size • Inspect Condenser Coil • Refrigerate – monitor operating pressures • Safety Devices – inspect for proper operation • Electrical Disconnect Box – inspect for proper rating and safe installation • Electrical Wiring – inspect and tighten connections • Test/inspect contactors for burned, pitted contacts • Inspect electrical for exposed wiring • Inspect and test capacitors • Inspect fan blade • Clean condenser coil and remove debris • Inspect service valves for proper operation • Measure Supply/Return temperature differential • Inspect ductwork for energy loss • Compressor – monitor, measure amperage and volt draw and wiring connections • Check Unit for Time Delay Relay • Check Unit for Isolation Pads • Inspect suction line for proper fittings • Inspect all fittings for signs of oil and/or leakage • Check lines and fittings with refrigerant leak detector • Check the condition of Blower Belt, if applicable
