Supporting Your HVAC System With Routine Maintenance

Air conditioning units have a lifespan of approximately 10-15 years. However, routine maintenance and tuneups can give your air conditioning unit the strength to last much longer. Your unit works hard to keep your home cool during the summer and this constant wear and tear can shorten the lifespan of the unit. With no maintenance, continual use can lead to premature breakdowns and failure, requiring you to replace your unit early.

Select Air Conditioning & Heating understands how expensive it can be to replace a unit early which is why we offer thorough routine maintenance checks for Lewisville, Texas, and surrounding area homeowners. These checks can happen once or twice a year depending on the age and condition of your unit.

Each of these checks starts with a thorough inspection which is then followed up by tune-up or minor repairs to ensure that any issues do not develop into a catastrophe at the worst possible moment. We also thoroughly clean your unit to ensure that dust and grime aren’t blocking cool air from getting to the rooms that need it most.

Here is a more detailed breakdown of our maintenance services.

Air Conditioning & Heating A/C Maintenance Checklist:

HVAC Maintenance Checklist

Whenever our team comes out to do an air conditioning maintenance check, you can expect the following services:

1. Thermostat Assessment

Our team checks your thermostat to ensure that the communication between it and your air conditioning unit is open. Faulty thermostats or faulty wiring can lead to your air conditioner missing the signal to turn on, leading to your home being improperly cooled or the unit not turning on at all.

Our thermostat assessment ensures that this will not be an issue and allows us to catch potential problems before they turn into major headaches.

2. Electrical Connection Check

Our team checks to make sure that every connection is snug and that this is reflected in the voltage readings. This ensures that your HVAC unit is using only the energy that is needed, keeping your energy bills low and removing the risk of an electrical fire.

3. Cleaning and Lubricating Your Air Conditioning Parts

Cleaning your A/C unit and the filters will ensure that dust and grime aren’t getting in between your unit’s cool air and your home.

These cleaning services also improve indoor air quality by removing harmful contaminants from the air, making it safer for you and your loved ones.

This is an extremely important part of every maintenance check and can reduce the amount of dust inside your home.

Lubricating your air conditioner’s fan and other moving parts reduce resistance which keeps the parts running smoothly and cuts down on wear and tear.

This keeps your AC unit running as well as new and improves the overall performance.

4. Condensate Drain Inspection

Condensate drains need to be inspected yearly to ensure that there are no blockages or leaks. Our team will check the drain thoroughly to protect your HVAC system from premature breakdown.

5. HVAC Operation Assessment

Our technicians will turn your unit on and off to watch for any signs that your unit may not be operating properly. This gives our team a chance to catch minor problems and tune up your system to keep it running strong throughout the summer.

Our team also goes outside to check any outdoor units and to remove dirt and debris from and around your outdoor air conditioner. This improves the air conditioner’s performance and reduces your energy bills.

6. Fan Assessment

Our team checks your HVACs motor and the blades of the fan to ensure that they are not damaged. Any damaged parts will be properly repaired so that they do not cause larger problems in the future.

7. Air Filter Replacement

Air filters should be replaced every few months to keep the airflow clean throughout your home. When our team comes to do your maintenance check, we will replace your air filter for you, giving you a few more months of clean air before it has to be replaced again.

8. Coil Cleaning

The coils on your evaporator need to be cleaned at least once every few years to ensure that dirt and grime are not prohibiting airflow and the transfer of heat. This can cause your unit to work harder to produce the results that you are looking for which increases wear and tear as well as your electricity bills.

9. A/C Refrigerant Checks

When there isn’t enough refrigerant in your air conditioner, your unit may only blow warm air. When this happens, your unit will continue to run trying to keep the home cool but it will only waste energy. Protect your unit and your budget by allowing our team to check your refrigerant and recharge it if necessary.

10. Blower Maintenance

Over time, your AC blower may need to be adjusted to ensure that proper airflow can reach all parts of your home. We will also clean your blower assembly with every maintenance check which gives our team a chance to check to make sure there is no damage.
