Why Now is the Time to Schedule Air Conditioning Service

Can you feel it? The days are getting warmer, the ice and snow are melting away, and the trees are donning their leaves again. It’s spring!

With the advent of spring comes the time of year when it is time to schedule maintenance on your air conditioning system. It’s best to do it now before you need it, when the temperatures rise in the summer.

But why is it so important? What is included in an air conditioning maintenance check? This is what you can expect with your scheduled visit from Fire ‘n’ Ice Heating & Cooling:

  • Check the air filters and change as necessary.
  • Check electrical components and make sure all connections are secure and without corrosion.
  • Inspect evaporator and condensing unit coils and clean as needed. The condenser coil collects dust and debris and will usually need to be cleaned.
  • Check controls of air conditioning unit including thermostat, relays, and contactors.
  • Inspect motor capacitors to make sure they haven’t weakened and are within +/- 10% of their rating.
  • Inspect for refrigerant leaks. If any leaks are found they will need to be repaired and the unit recharged.
  • Clear the drain lines and check the drain pan for overflow.
