How Often Should You Maintain Your AC?

Ideally, air conditioners should get a once-over at least once a year, preferably in the spring before you start cranking up the cool air. Every spring, we get a flurry of calls from folks whose ACs decided to take a break right when things started heating up.

But don’t fret if you missed the springtime maintenance window. It’s never too late to schedule a service call for your AC. Better late than never, especially when it comes to keeping cool!

Benefits of Regular Air Conditioner Maintenance

Still not sold on the idea of regular maintenance? Consider these perks:

  • Fewer Breakdowns: During a maintenance check, our HVAC pros will fine-tune, clean, and inspect all the components to ensure smooth operation. By catching small issues early, we can nip potential big problems in the bud, saving you from costly repairs down the road.
  • Improved Efficiency and Lower Bills: Routine maintenance helps your AC work more efficiently, meaning it reaches your desired temperature faster and runs less often. This not only saves wear and tear but also cuts down on energy costs.
  • Extended Lifespan: While air conditioners can last 15-20 years, regular maintenance is the key to reaching that milestone. Skimping on maintenance could mean shelling out for a new unit much sooner. Save yourself some cash by investing in AC maintenance now.

What's Included in an AC Tune-Up?

No two AC systems are exactly alike, so your unit might need specific services tailored to its needs. During a maintenance appointment with Hill-Air, we’ll typically cover the following:

  • Check the compressor’s amp draw, electrical voltage, noise level, and condition to ensure proper operation. 
  • Verify refrigerant charge is correct using refrigeration manifold gauges and temperatures to verify superheat and/or sub-cooling.
  • Check the micro-fared rating of the capacitor for the compressor/outdoor fan motor and the capacitor for the indoor blower motor.
  • Clean any large debris from the bottom of the outdoor unit and rinse with water.
  • Check the condenser coil and clean it with water (cleaner solution extra if needed).
  • Check evaporator/indoor coil for cleanliness if easily accessible (cleaner solution extra if needed).
  • Check indoor air temperatures to determine proper air temperature drop or Delta T.
  • Check the condensate drain for debris and cracks, to ensure the operation and flush with water.
  • Check the condition of the secondary drain pan and wet switch operation if applicable.
  • Check operation of outdoor fan motor and blades, including amp draw, condition, and barrings.
  • Oil any motors or shaft bearings that are not sealed.
  • Check the indoor blower wheel (cleaning the blower wheel extra if needed).
  • Check the condition of the blower motor belt, electrical amp draw, assembly motor shafts, and pulleys if applicable.
  • Check electrical connections for tightness and any discoloration due to excessive heat.
  • Check electrical wire insulation for integrity and verify no apparent cracks or shorts.
  • Check the operation of the system from the thermostat.
  • Check the air filter for cleanliness (air filter extra if needed).       
  • Record model and serial numbers and place a Hill-Air service report decal on all pieces of equipment for ease of reference as a reminder for the customer to keep track of air filter changes and system cleanings.
  • Ask the customer if they have any questions, if so answer them thoroughly and professionally.
