Why Is Maintenance Important?

Regular maintenance on your air conditioning system is important to maintaining Healthy Air Quality inside your home.  Like so many mechanical systems in our homes, air conditioners often go ignored until a problem arises. Neglecting routine maintenance leads to decreased efficiency, reduced air quality and can often ultimately lead to premature failure – leading to potentially expensive repairs!

At Airomania, we advise all air conditioner owners to have their system inspected annually by a qualified technician. We regularly provide our clients with the highest quality inspections and maintenance to prevent any problems and to ensure their air conditioning system operates at its best.

The below checklist demonstrates

Annual Air Conditioner Maintenance Checklist

Clean the outdoor condenser coils and indoor evaporator units

The coil is made up of the refrigerant lines and surrounding radiator-like fins that line the cabinet of your outdoor A/C unit. The evaporator is the interior counterpart to the outdoor unit and has its own coil. Dirt and debris on the coils reduce efficiency and stress the system’s mechanical parts

Check the refrigerant level

An incorrect amount of refrigerant makes a compressor work too hard, reducing the efficiency and longevity of the system

Check the drains

Drains must be unobstructed and clean to ensure excess moisture is not trapped in the units or inside the house

Check outdoor fan motor and blades and indoor blower assembly

The fan on the outdoor unit pulls air in through the coil fins. The indoor blower is the fan unit (motor, fan wheel and housing) on your furnace. Older blowers may include a drive belt that should be inspected and adjusted or replaced as needed

Check compressor and refrigerant tubing

If the refrigerant tubing is blocked or leaking, they won’t deliver enough coolant to the compressor, which will cause the compressor to work harder, which will eventually cause the compressor to fail

Lubricate moving parts (as applicable)

Older A/C units often have ports on fan motors, compressors and other parts for adding lubrication periodically. Newer models typically have sealed parts that don’t need to be lubricated

Inspect all electrical controls, wiring and connections

All electrical components and hook-ups should be checked for soundness, wear, and damage

Inspect and clean or replace air filters

A clogged filter restricts air flow to the system so that the motor runs without producing any results. Clean or change the filter as necessary. Then continue inspecting the filter every month. Using a clean filter can reduce your air conditioning costs by as much as 15 percent

Run a general system test

A duct inspection is not needed every year and may not be included with a standard system check-up, but air leakage in ductwork is one of the main causes. 

Inefficiency in forced-air A/C and heating systems. It’s a good idea to have your ductwork assessed and sealed and/or insulated in problem areas, as needed.

Check ductwork for leaks and other problems

Your technician should turn on the A/C system to check operating functions such as the starting cycle and shut-off control, check for unusual noises or odours, and measure indoor/outdoor temperatures and system pressures as needed.

How clean is your air conditioner?

Whatever is inside your air conditioner is also inside your lungs. So, if your health is important to you, then the cleanliness of your air conditioning system should be one of your top priorities.

Indoor air is often far more contaminated than outdoor air, purely because of the cleanliness of your average air conditioning system. 

At Airomania, we have the technicians who can remove any built-up dust, grime, mould, or other substances in your air conditioning system that may be contaminating the air throughout your house. We routinely perform a thorough, environmentally-friendly clean of your air conditioner as part of our regular servicing. So, give us a call today to discuss how we can get your air conditioning system as clean as new!
