Air Conditioning Spring Maintenance Checklist

Spring is here in Cincinnati! That means opening your windows, going for walks outdoors, and spring cleaning your home. Why not add an air conditioning check-up to your list of spring cleaning items? Today, the team at Air Authority explains the details of our spring air conditioning maintenance checklist.

Compressor

The compressor is the unit that sits outside of your home. This device circulates the refrigerant necessary to keep the air temperature cool indoors. Our staff inspects the compressor and wiring for damage, rust, and wear. We’ll also inspect the fan motor and blades to ensure they are properly cooling the compressor. Finally, we’ll clean and reassemble the unit as a part of our air conditioning maintenance service.

Refrigerant

While we’re outside, we check the level of refrigerant in your system. Refrigerant levels should never go down unless there is a leak somewhere in your HVAC unit. If we detect a leak, our technician will tell you and provide repairs as soon as possible.

Electrical Relays

Electrical relays in your HVAC system regulate electricity going to the motors. If a relay isn’t working properly, your air conditioning shuts down. Air Authority technicians test electrical relays with a multimeter tool to make sure the right amount of electricity passes through. We’ll recommend replacing relays if we discover that some are faulty or have reduced electrical capacity.

Motors

Motors are essential to the operation of your air conditioning. They circulate refrigerant and air through your home. When a motor breaks in the compressor unit, the air doesn’t cool and you get room-temperature air coming from your vents. If the motor in your indoor unit breaks, the air doesn’t circulate at all. Air Authority experts test the electrical connections to the motors, as well as the motors themselves, to make sure they run correctly.

Condenser Coils

Condenser coils remove heat from the air. They can freeze up over time and actually develop a layer of ice if they malfunction. We’ll examine the condenser coils to see if there is excessive frost or ice. 

Commercial and Residential Service Agreements
