Annual maintenance on a central air conditioner at the end of the season is important as it saves money by increasing the efficiency of the air conditioning unit and preventing breakdowns. A typical maintenance check-up of an air conditioner should include…
1. Check the thermostat settings to ensure that the cooling system keeps the home comfortable and saves energy while residents are away.
2. Tighten all electrical connections and measure voltage on motors. Faulty electrical connections can cause unsafe operations of the system.
3. Lubricate all moving parts. Parts that lack lubrication cause friction and increase the electricity used.
4. Inspect the condensate drain in the central air conditioner. A plugged drain can cause water damage and affect indoor humidity levels.
5. Check controls on the system to ensure proper and safe operation.
6. Monitor the air conditioner refrigerant level and adjust if necessary.
7. Clean and adjust blower components to provide proper system airflow.
