Spring Cooling System Maintenance Time!

It’s been a long winter in the Charlotte area but spring has finally arrived! Pollen is floating in the air and birds are returning from their winter hideout.  Springtime also means that summer will be here before we know it, along with  the need for air conditioning!

Spring may not be when most of us start thinking about air conditioning, but now is most definitely the right time to call us for your air conditioning system’s annual spring checkup! Many of our customers have added their AC tune-up directly to their spring cleaning list, to make sure the whole home is prepared for the arrival of summer.

Spring Cooling System Check Up!

You home cooling system has a number of components that we inspect as a part of your spring air conditioner checkup. While some of the standard cleaning items can be done on your own, much of the air conditioner check up is  a job best left to the professionals, no matter how handy you may be elsewhere around the home. Central air conditioning units are complex pieces of equipment.

Visual Inspection

One of the first things we do, is an overall visual inspection of your entire HVAC system! We look for the warnings signs that signal there may be something wrong with the HVAC system. This may include:

  • Rust or Corrosion
  • Standing Water in Drain Pans
  • Water or Moisture Stains on Equipment
  • Scorching or Signs of Overheating
  • Hanging or Improperly Sealed Duct
  • Much more…

Electrical Systems and Components

After our visual inspection, we test the electronic control systems of your air conditioner, testing the capacitors, switches, circuit boards and relays, for proper operation. This also includes a thorough inspection of all electrical and thermostat wiring on the system, to be sure there are no broken or chaffed wires and all connections are tight and ready for the long cooling season.

Cooling Components Checkup

Next on the spring AC checklist are your evaporator coil and condensate drain line. The coil is a key part of your home air conditioning system and if it’s not clean and working properly, your AC is not going to work, or at best, work with lower efficiency! The condensate drain line carries water condensation away from the evaporator coil, and if this becomes clogged or improperly connected to the rest of the drain system, your AC system can become flooded and you could have a very bad mess on your hands!

Operation and Functionality

Once we are satisfied that the electrical and component systems are in operating condition, we start your AC system and check for proper operation. We check your air conditioning unit’s coolant levels, compressor start and run system, as well as all safety and control systems on the running unit. While the unit is running, we will also check the disconnect switch to make sure that it is in good working order, as this is a vital part of safety for your AC system.
