As Indianapolis deals with yet another snow shower, it’s hard to fathom it’s time to begin planning for the summer. The Groundhog told us that spring should be here any day, and the Farmer’s Almanac predicted a “kinder and gentler” winter, so basically don’t trust anyone’s prediction as we look forward to summer. Not even Indiana’s most trusted weatherman can predict how hot it’ll be this summer. One thing’s for certain, in Indianapolis we use our air conditioner, and we use it a lot.
So, while snow is on the ground, we encourage homeowners to get out their calendars and plan their spring HVAC Maintenance. What’s spring HVAC maintenance entail? Primarily, your technician will be getting your air conditioning condenser and coil prepared for summer. Your condenser’s been getting snowed on all winter, so they will perform tests to make sure it’s running correctly. But it just begins there.
It’s always a good idea to check on your HVAC technician to ensure that the work defined in your agreement is being done. At Homesense Heating & Cooling, we take pride in our work and want to see your air conditioning equipment have a long life.
Other items on our checklist include:
- Checking thermostat
- Checking or replacing filter
- Checking for the temperature drop
- Cleaning condenser coil
- Checking and adjusting airflow
- Checking electrical connections
- Checking amp and volt draw on motors
- Check refrigerant charge
- Lubricating moving parts
- Checking condenser drain
- Checking all capacitors
- Looking for refrigerant leaks
- Checking disconnect power box
Don’t wait until you’re already using your HVAC system to get it serviced by a qualified technician. Air conditioner maintenance, like servicing your car, getting a physical, or any other activity involving maintenance, is meant to proactively prevent catastrophic issues from taking place.
