What to Expect With Your A/C Check

My Local News Arizona - Advertisement

(PHOENIX)– Before we dive into three straight months of triple digits, now is the time to have your air conditioner checked out. Scheduling a checkup can save you money in two ways:

1. If the certified technician spots a small problem before it becomes a big one. For example, repairing a minor refrigerant leak is much more inexpensive than replacing a compressor burned out due to low levels.
2. It ensures your a/c is working at optimal efficiency. 

The experts at family-owned Donley Service share the following checklist of common maintenance procedures:

1. Refrigerant levels – test for leaks and ensure proper levels to avoid burning out the compressor, which is the most expensive A/C repair you can face.
2. Measure airflow through the evaporator coil. Clean evaporator and coil.
3. Oil motor and check belts for tightness and wear.
4. Inspect all electrical components.
5. Calibrate thermostat

The single, most effective maintenance task a business or homeowner can follow is to routinely clean or replace air conditioner filters. Clogged, dirty filters block flow and reduce a unit’s efficiency by 5 to 15 percent.
