Preparing Your Air Conditioner for Summer

Although we have just entered into spring, now is a great time for scheduling your air conditioner maintenance, repair or replacement for the summer months ahead.

What’s Included in an Air Conditioner Maintenance Check?

Refrigerant Charge Check – is something that can go unnoticed, which will increase the costs of running your air conditioner by up to 30% and lead to the breakdown of your machine.

Condenser Coil Check – involves seeing how clean your coils are, and cleaning them as needed to reduce the pressure required to run your A/C unit, reducing running costs.

Safeties and Controls Check – making sure all systems are running as they should through your safeties and controls, can also help ensure you A/C is running optimally and not leading down the path of complete shutdown due to faulty parts.

Other checks include:

  • Crankcase Heaters Checks
  • Relays and Contactors Check
  • Inspection of Unit Wiring
  • Temperature, Lubrication, Belts and Pulleys and Pressures Check
  • Testing of Unit Disconnect, Voltage and Capacitors
  • Ensuring Condensate Drain is open
  • Air Filter Check
  • Calibration of Thermostat
  • Inspection of Motor …and more!

When Should You Replace Your Air Conditioner

As with any appliance, air conditioners have a lifespan too, and if you have noticed your summer electric bill rising over the years – a more energy efficient unit could very well save you a surprising amount of money and is well-worth considering.

If you are looking to install your very first unit there are two options to look into. We can use the existing ductwork in your home to move cool air throughout your house, or if you do not have ducting – you can opt for a ductless mini split air conditioner.

Your cool and comfortable home is just a call away. See how we can help you with your air conditioning maintenance, repair and installation in Langley, Surrey and Maple Ridge, call 604-376-0919 today!
