It is officially spring, which suggests it is time to schedule your yearly air-con tune- up. 

Of course, the standard of your professional air-con maintenance depends on the technicians that perform the service, but there are some things that the majority of licensed HVAC companies should perform. 

6 Steps Of Professional Air Conditioning Tune-Up 

If you have got a licensed HVAC technician to inspect your heating and/or cooling system, they ought to perform a full inspection and cleaning, including: 

1. Thermostat 

To ensure your thermostat is working properly, the technician should calibrate the thermostat and make sure it is installed properly and located away from all heat sources, including light bulbs and heat-producing appliances. 

2. Check And Tighten Electrical Connections 

Technicians inspect electrical connections to make sure they are operating safely. Checking and tightening electrical connections catch potential electrical hazards and helps to improve the lifespan heating and cooling system. 

3. Lubricate Moving Parts 

This ensures that you aren’t causing any unnecessary damage to moving parts with friction. Lack of lubrication causes system parts to interrupt down more quickly, requiring more frequent repairs and/or replacements. 

4. Check And Clean Condensate Drain Line 

Clearing your A/C’s condensate line ensures that your air conditioner service can properly drain liquid condensate. If your drain cline becomes clogged, this can cause water leaks and other moisture and wetness problems. Condensate drain cleanings also get obviate any mold and bacteria around your drain line. Your mechanic also will check if you have a fractured condensate channel pain and be able to repair or substitute any sieve-like condensate drain lines that you simply may have. 

5. Check System Controls

 This ensures proper cycling and safe operation for your HVAC system. It is important to see if your system is starting, operating, and shutting off properly. 

6. Change Or Clean Air Filter 

This ensures that you have a working and clean air filter that is suitable for your air conditioner exiting system. Although you're ready to change your filter yourself (and you should!), your HVAC contractor might mean a far better filter or filtration system that you simply should be using.
