AC Maintenance and Tune-Up in North Richland Hills

Many homeowners tend to overlook regular A/C maintenance. Your home HVAC system, just like a car, needs regular maintenance in order to keep it running as efficiently and effectively as it can. Not only will regular maintenance keep your A/C system running smoothly, but it will also help reduce your energy bill as well as extend the life of your A/C unit. Your HVAC system may also last years longer, so paying for major repairs or early replacements won’t be necessary.

What is AC Maintenance?

A/C maintenance is a series of steps to help keep your A/C running without major problems or breakdowns. It includes professional services to inspect and, if necessary, repair important components, as well as simple steps you can do yourself. These include cleaning or changing an air filter or cleaning the condenser coil. There are many aspects of A/C maintenance. For the more challenging types of maintenance, it’s always best to call one of our expert technicians at THE AC HERO to schedule regular maintenance for your A/C system.

Professional AC Inspection

You should have a professional A/C inspection at least once a year, before the start of the cooling season, to check for any hidden issues. An inspection in the fall will ensure your air conditioner is in peak condition and able to handle increased demand.

To make sure your A/C is running well and will continue to do so, we check the following:

  • Blower Motor
  • Thermostat
  • Air Filter
  • Bearings
  • Indoor Coil
  • Condensate Drain
  • Condenser Coil
  • Refrigerant
  • Electrical Connections, Wirings, and Disconnect Box
  • Capacitors
  • Fan Blade
  • Service Valves
  • Duct Work
  • Compressor
  • System Tune-Up
  • Safety Inspection

AC Maintenance Checklist

Here is a checklist to help your A/C maintenance go smoothly. Some you can do on your own, while others are best completed with the help of a professional HVAC contractor.

Cleaning and Replacing Your Air Filters

One important part of A/C maintenance is making sure your air filters are cleaned, which allows for unrestricted airflow. If your A/C filters are over 90 days old, it might be a good time to have them replaced. But if they are reusable, be sure to clean them regularly. Doing so allows your family to breathe cleaner air and helps to reduce the strain on A/C motors.

Keeping Your AC System Free of Debris

Another important A/C maintenance task is keeping the outside of your air conditioning system free of dirt, grass, or other types of debris. Debris buildup can reduce the cooling capacity of your A/C system. It also puts unnecessary strain on vital components.

Cleaning Your AC Coils

Keeping your evaporator and condenser coils clean eliminates debris that can collect on them over time. Any accumulated debris insulates the coil, reducing its ability to absorb heat, which keeps your home from cooling properly. Many times, homeowners will find dirty coils are the cause of HVAC related issues.

Check for Loose Connections

If you find any loose electrical connections, tighten them if it’s safe to do so. Otherwise, contact a technician who can tighten connections with the proper tools and check for potential damage or other hazards that may require a repair or replacement of connections or wiring.

Lubricate Motors and Bearings

It is important to lubricate parts that move because friction can cause them to wear down quickly. Motors, bearings, fans, and other moving parts can last longer with less strain on the overall A/C system, so it runs efficiently and potentially develops fewer problems over time.

Replace Refrigerant

A refrigerant recharge is important if levels are low. If there’s too little refrigerant, then your A/C cannot function properly and your home will not be as warm or cool as you’d like. A technician must have the proper experience to change refrigerant per the latest laws and regulations, especially if you have an older system (as R-22 freon has been discontinued).

Clear and Clean All Drains

A clogged condensate line can cause water to leak and pool up near the air conditioner. Moisture and dampness can lead to mold buildup and water damage. Clear condensate drain lines to prevent problems debris and clogs can cause. Also have a professional repair any leaks or cracks in the condensate drain line.

Inspect System Controls

If the system controls are faulty, the A/C won’t start, operate, or shut off properly. Have all unit controls and thermostats tested regularly to check for problems. Correcting these can reduce the amount of energy wasted, keep your utility bills down, and improve comfort levels at home.
