AC Checklist & Tips

As we enter the season for air conditioning tune-ups, we would like to offer our company’s slogan for home owners to consider: “Quality Sevice Has No Substitute.” At Audette Mechanical, this motto guides our entire philosophy on how we take care of our clients.

While cleaning out your closets and clearing the yard in your spring cleaning efforts, don’t forget a favorite summer convenience, your central air conditioning system. The best time of year to ensure that your air conditioning unit is running efficiently is in the spring.

Our annual air conditioning tune-ups are an example of how we go the extra mile in reassuring our clients that their hard-earned dollars are well spent with us. Our air conditioning checklist shows how “deep” we take the process. This depth results in far less callbacks and breakdowns in the cooling seaon and less utility dollars spent for the client. Attention to detail is key to a good air conditioning tune up.

You may do some of the maintenance work on your own. If your system has disposable filters, check them every two months and replace when necessary. Clean permanent filters as directed by the manufacturer, and make cleaning duct outlets and registers a part of your regular housecleaning routine.

AIR CONDITIONING SPRING CHECKLIST

  1. Check and clean the thermostat. Make sure all the functions work, the time and day are correct, and the unit is dust free.
  2. Calibrate thermostat (mercury-type), if necessary.
  3. Replace air filter (if necessary).
  4. Perform a visual inspection of the indoor unit. Look for rust, dirt, loose panels, and advise the client about any flammable materials being stored near the unit.
  5. Shut down humidifier for summer (if applicable).
  6. Check the blower assembly. Look for rust or filings from wear, make sure the wires are in good chape and properly attached, and ensure that the entire assembly is secured and tight.
  7. Check and clean the motors and fan, and oil as required.
  8. Check the evaporator coil. Look for oil stains, rust or debris in the pan, and check the fin condition.

  11. Add biocide pan/pump treatment.
