What Does AC Maintenance Typically Include? 

What To Expect From Your Cooling System Tune-Up

No one can oversell the value of air conditioning maintenance, but sometimes it’s not clear what it’s all about. AC maintenance is a step-by-step process that serves to identify potential problems and set you up for a season of refined, seamless cooling.

With our decades of HVAC experience, we at Hill & Company know well the way of AC maintenance, along with the elements that are most crucial to improving your system’s health. The next time you schedule your professional system tune-up, keep in mind what you’ll be gaining as well as how you can communicate better with your Hill & Company technician.

What AC Maintenance Can I Do On My Own?

While professional AC maintenance is crucial, homeowners can also perform some maintenance tasks themselves. Doing so is actually quite important, as some parts of your cooling system will suffer if neglected for even just a few months.

By staying on top of this, you can keep your system clean, efficient and in good health.

Here are some DIY strategies to remember for maintaining your air conditioning system:

    • Check and replace your air filters — do so at least every two months, or more regularly during seasons of high usage.

    • In addition to cleaning the indoor unit, remove debris such as leaves and grass from around the outdoor unit to ensure proper airflow.

    • Regularly check and adjust thermostat settings to ensure optimal comfort and energy efficiency.

While expert maintenance covers critical tasks, homeowners can perform DIY maintenance to ensure good performance between professional visits.

What Is Done During An AC Tune-Up?

Proper maintenance for your air conditioner is a necessary aspect of keeping your system running smoothly and efficiently. Tune-ups also help your indoor air quality, warding off allergens and helping keep a more pleasant home.

From cleaning to performance testing, Hill & Company’s professional technicians ensure that every aspect of your AC system is operating at peak, hill-topping performance.

Inspection Of Components

Every proper AC tune-up starts with an inspection. During your maintenance visit, our experienced technicians conduct a thorough review of various components to ensure they are in good working condition. This extends to air filters, condenser coils, refrigerant levels and even your thermostat.

All of this serves to ensure pristine temperature control and seamless efficiency. If your unit is underworking or overperforming, it’s our technicians’ job to figure out why and lead you to a solution.

If your home isn’t already benefiting from clean air and comfortable cooling, Hill & Company will make sure to make it right.

Cleaning And Replacements

Cleaning the components of your AC system is vital for ensuring optimal efficiency. Among these tasks that our technicians will carry out, some include:

    • Replacing your air filters

    • Cleaning the blower motor and fan

    • Cleaning condenser coils of debris

    • Taking care of the blower motor and fan

    • Inspecting ductwork

While some parts of your HVAC system can be cleaned on your own, a great many of them can’t without risking damage to your unit. Hill & Company provides not only the security of cleaning your AC safely and efficiently, but we also bring that professional golden touch to everything we do.

Lubricating Moving Parts

Proper lubrication of moving parts is essential for reducing friction and wear, thus prolonging the lifespan of your air conditioner. During maintenance, our technicians lubricate fan motors and other components to keep them running smoothly and extend their life expectancy.

This process is essential to prevent overheating, which can wear down your unit and even lead to costly malfunctions. A professional AC tune-up takes care of this problem and lets you enjoy the cooling with peace of mind.

Performance Testing

Along with undertaking the inspection, cleaning and lubrication processes, we perform performance testing to ensure your AC system is operating at optimal levels. This can involve measuring airflow to confirm proper circulation, checking the temperature differential and testing your unit’s cycling ability.

That’s all to say that in addition to cleaning and boosting your AC system, Hill & Company doesn’t leave until we know you’re all set to relax with your upgraded cooling power.
