During a spring maintenance check-up visit, your HVAC technician will generally start with the following items:
- Inspect your refrigerant levels and recharge as necessary
- Inspect all electrical components and controls and ensure there are no signs of corrosion or similar damage
- Inspect evaporator and condenser coils and clean where needed
- Inspect oil motors
- Recalibrate thermostat
- Inspect the condenser
- Inspect and either clean or replace any air filters
Another component you may want to ask for is an inspection and testing of your ductwork if you have central air conditioning. A ductwork test checks for places where conditioned air is leaking out through gaps or cracks in the air ducts. Once tested, the technician will help you determine the best methods for sealing or otherwise repairing the leaks to increase your central air equipment’s efficiency (thereby saving you a ton in annual energy costs.
