Air Conditioning Maintenance

When is the best time of year to get my AC ready for summer in North Carolina?

In North Carolina, it's advisable to get your AC ready for summer during the spring months, preferably around March or April. This timing ensures that your cooling system is serviced and in top condition before the warmer weather arrives. Addressing any maintenance needs or repairs during this period helps optimize the performance and efficiency of your AC unit, ensuring reliable cooling comfort throughout the summer season.

What can I do to maintain my AC unit myself?

To maintain your AC unit yourself, focus on tasks like:

  • Changing or cleaning air filters regularly to ensure optimal airflow and efficiency.
  • Keeping the exterior unit free of debris, leaves, and dirt to maintain proper airflow and prevent overheating.
  • Inspecting coolant lines for insulation damage and repairing as necessary to maintain efficiency.
  • Checking the thermostat's accuracy and considering an upgrade to a programmable model for better control and energy savings.
  • Cleaning the condensate drain line to prevent clogs and water damage.
  • Ensuring all vents are unblocked to promote even cooling.
What can happen if I neglect regular AC maintenance?

Neglecting regular AC maintenance can lead to several consequences:

  • Reduced efficiency, increasing energy bills
  • Accumulation of dirt and debris, hindering airflow
  • Wear and tear on components, leading to breakdowns
  • Reduced lifespan of the AC unit
  • Poor indoor air quality, potentially causing health issues
  • Increased risk of system failures during peak usage periods
  • Voiding of warranty coverage for neglect-related damages

Regular maintenance helps prevent these issues, ensuring optimal AC performance and longevity.

What Advantages Do I Get From AC Maintenance?

The biggest advantage by far is that you won't have to worry that your system is ready to go come summertime. It'll be checked out beforehand so we can take care of any potential issues. But beyond that:

  • Better Longevity - When you have your air conditioner tuned up regularly, it helps it to last a long time. Nobody wants to buy a new AC every ten years - so squeeze as much life out of the one you have as you can.
  • Smoother Operation - A well-maintained air conditioning system will use less energy - and we all know what using less energy means. It means savings directly back into your pocket from power bills.
  • Fewer Repairs - Air conditioning maintenance lets a pair of practiced eyes check over your entire system and, in doing so, they can catch many big issues while they're still in their nascent stage. Handling them now before they become major problems is always better.
  • Comfort For Your Body AND Mind - Isn't it nice to know you don't have to worry about something? Regular AC maintenance leaves you with the knowledge that your air conditioner is ready when you need it, so you can relax physically and mentally.

So What Happens During An AC Tune-Up?

Quite a lot, actually. We aren't just blowing smoke when we say we check your system from top to bottom. But if you'd like to know some specifics:

  • Make sure everything is properly lubricated
  • Replace air filter (unless it's in good shape)
  • Flush the drain pan
  • Verify refrigerant levels
  • Inspect the blower motor and belt
  • Clean the outdoor unit's condenser coil
  • Check all connections and contacts
  • Make sure thermostat is properly calibrated
  • Ensure all controls are working safely and properly
