Regular maintenance on your West Palm Beach air conditioning system is one of the best ways to reduce repairs and extend its operational lifespan. Even if your unit is new and seems to be running fine, a little maintenance will help keep it running at peak efficiency.
While some maintenance tasks you can perform by yourself, like changing your air filter, a professional technician has a long checklist of things they do during a maintenance visit to keep your unit working as effectively as possible. Here are some of the preventive maintenance tasks that can really make a difference the number of repairs your AC will need over its lifetime.
Your technician will check both the indoor and outdoor components of your AC system. Indoors, the will make sure that your blower assembly is clean and working properly. They will also inspect your evaporator coil, drain pan, and condensate drain lines for possible issues. Since the air filters have a big impact on air flow, your technician will clean or replace the filters as needed. Ductwork is also examined for proper airflow and leaks. Any wiring or connections will also be inspected to ensure safe operation.
Proper refrigerant charge not only will make your unit perform more efficiently, but it will also cut down on problems such as ice buildup. Your West Palm Beach air conditioning technician will make sure that your unit has the refrigerant charge recommended by the manufacturer. They will clean your AC, including the base pan, coil, and cabinet. The compressor, controls, and electrical system will checked by your technician for wear or damage, and any necessary parts replaced.
Each one of these tasks might seem small by itself, but they all add up to a safer air conditioning system that will work better and last longer. Remember to schedule a maintenance visit annually, and if you haven’t yet this year, give Envirotech Air Quality Services a call today!
