You run into a bit of trouble with your air conditioner, but you don’t know what the problem is. You see “air conditioning service” everywhere you look online, but does it ever really explain what that means? That’s what we’re going to explain today. Getting air conditioning in Oviedo, FL means a few things, so let’s go over it right now.
Replacing Old Parts Before They Wear Out
When an air conditioner breaks down, it’s not just one component that wears out on you–there’s a high chance of collateral damage to the other components in your unit. One part of AC service is maintenance, which also serves as a point of inspection.
This gives technicians the perfect time to monitor your air conditioner, the parts that are close to failing, and replace them before they cause a cataclysmic domino effect in your air conditioner. These regular checks can prevent most problems, though some are still hard to catch.
Annual Preventative Maintenance
Let’s say that you want those parts to be in tip-top shape as often as possible. During regular maintenance, your technician will inspect the entire HVAC unit and make the necessary tune-ups.
- Inspect refrigerant lines and make sure there are no damages or leaks
- Lubricate moving parts
- Check all belts and moving parts for wear and tear
- Remove dust and debris from the condenser coil
- Unclog/flush condensate drain line
- Identify spikes in how your AC draws power
This is just a handful of the services offered when you get preventative maintenance. Your HVAC technician knows what to look for, which parts need attention, and has seen just about every kind of breakdown imaginable. They’re your best defense against uncertainty with your AC.
Checking for Safety Concerns
Last (but certainly not least) we have safety concerns to check for. Your HVAC technician will monitor your air conditioner for as many possible signs of hazards as possible. These can and often include:
- Electrical Fires: Nobody wants to think about a fire risk breaking out in the coldest thing in their home, but it’s possible. Your air conditioner has wires that are susceptible to overheating, which can cause the plastic casing to melt and catch fire. If you ever get a burning smell from your AC, that could be it.
- Air Quality Concerns: Your AC pulls in dust from the air supply in your home, and taps it in the filter at the air intake. But if that dust is getting through, it’ll pour right back into the air for you to breathe in.
- Refrigerant Leaks: Refrigerant is hazardous to your health, and that of your animals and small children. It also means that your AC is about to freeze up (yes, less refrigerant means it can freeze) and damage your unit.
