Getting your air conditioner inspected by a professional isn’t probably something you’ve thought of recently. In the rush of life, it’s easy to lose track of scheduling regular tune-ups, and your air conditioner is probably not at the front of your mind—until something goes wrong and you need repair. However, Allbritten would like you to know that planning ahead with some AC maintenance can really pay off. Here’s how.
What does Allbritten look at?
Every Allbritten air conditioning tune-up starts with our technician arriving, greeting you, and then getting to work. Our technician has the specialized training needed to give your AC unit a thorough inspection—and to address any issues that arise.
At Allbritten, we conduct a 23-point inspection and AC maintenance process that includes the following:
- Check refrigerant levels
- Check suction and head pressures for compressor
- Check voltages and amperages for all motors
- Inspect service disconnect
- Tighten all electrical connections
- Inspect oil fan motor
- Inspect coil and check fin condition
- Inspect condition of line set
- Check unit levels
- Confirm proper coil operation
- Inspect blower filter
- Inspect and clear condensate drain line
- Inspect and test thermostat
- Change standard filter
- How does a tune-up help my energy use?
During the months your air conditioner is not in use, it sits outside of your home, collecting dust and all the other elements that blow into it. Over that time, that dust can build up and lead to partial blockage of vents and airways that deliver cold air from your air conditioner to your home. Of course, that dust can also pose a health hazard.
In addition, other air leaks may emerge, leading to chilled air escaping from the system back outside. Just like your parents used to chide you when you left the front door open: “I’m not paying to air condition the outdoors!”
An AC tune-up from Allbritten will address these dust and air leak problems, cleaning coils and filters to ensure that the air you pay to chill is only going to one place: the inside of your home. The result? You get a comfortable home for less cash.
