Summer is here and so is the heat! If you own a home, chances are you have an air conditioning unit to help you survive the season. And, if you have an air conditioning unit, it will need to be serviced from time to time to make sure it can get you through the season in one piece. But what does an air conditioning service include? Read on to find out.
Types Of Air Conditioning Services
First and foremost, it’s important to know that there are two different types of air conditioning services: preventative and repair. Preventative services are conducted on an annual basis in order to ensure that your AC unit is running properly. These services are also handy in preventing any future issues from arising. Repair services, on the other hand, are only conducted when there is an issue with the unit that needs to be fixed
So, What Happens During An Air Conditioning Service?
Well, it depends on the type of service being conducted. During a preventative service, a technician will come to your home and carry out several processes.
The technician will first inspect these parts of your AC unit:
- The coils
- The filters
- The belt
- The motor
- The refrigerant line
Clean & Test
After the inspection, the technician will clean all the accessible parts of your unit. This includes the coils, blower wheel and drain pan. They will also lubricate all moving parts. Once this is done, they will put your unit through a series of tests to make sure it is running properly. These tests include:
- Checking the thermostat is accurate
- Inspecting the electrical connections
- Testing the compressor for proper operation
After these tests are completed, your technician will give you a full report of their findings. The report will contain any recommendations they have for your AC system. They will also answer any questions you have about your unit.
What Happens In A Repair Service?
If a repair service is necessary, the technician will first diagnose the problem and then determine the best way to fix it. Once the repair has been made, they will test the unit to ensure it is working properly.
Whether your air conditioning unit needs a preventative or repair service, it’s best to choose professionals with experience servicing a broad range of units. This way, you’ll rest assured knowing your air conditioner is in good hands. Professionals will inspect all of the parts, clean the unit and make any necessary repairs, so you can stay cool and calm all summer long!
