Central Air Conditioner Maintenance Guide

No comments

Central air conditioner maintenance is essential to prolonging the life of your cooling system and in making sure it continues to cool your home evenly and effectively. Each and every year (and especially before cooling season begins!) you should perform a few simple maintenance tasks to ensure your AC unit is in top shape.

Maintaining your air conditioner doesn’t have to be difficult. Set aside a few hours to work through these steps so you can get the most out of your cooling equipment. The following is Evam Canada’s simple central air conditioner maintenance guide:

  1. Change the Filter
    Dirty and clogged filters are the number one cause of air conditioner problems. A dirty filter can restrict air flow, leading to decreased efficiency of your cooling system. A clogged filter can even result in your system icing up. Check your filter often and clean or replace it every month or two, especially in peak cooling season.
  2. Check the Thermostat
    If your thermostat is battery operated, replace the unit with fresh batteries to avoid costly repair visits. Many home owners blame their air conditioner in cases where their thermostat is really the culprit!
  3. Clean Up
    A key component of your central air conditioner maintenance is a thorough cleaning of the exterior unit. If you haven’t cleaned it recently, it is likely quite dirty. Carefully clean the fan blades with a high pressure stream from a garden hose, taking care to avoid bending or breaking any fins as you remove debris. Also clear away any other debris like leaves, twigs and grass that may be surrounding the outdoor air conditioning unit.
  4. Level It
    As the concrete pad on which your AC unit sits settles, it can become unlevel. If your air conditioner tilts to one side, this can impact the compressor inside, making it more susceptible to wear and tear. Use a hand level to check your unit and made adjustments using shims to return it to the proper position.
  5. Perform an Overall Check-Up
    Take a visual inventory of your air conditioner’s components, such as fuses, breakers, wires, connections, drain lines and more. Examine these parts for any signs of wear or damage that could cause your system to malfunction. If you notice any issues, call in a professional air conditioner repair technician immediately for assistance.

AC Maintenance Cost

No comments

In order to cool your home efficiently during the warmer months, your air conditioner should be in peak condition. Whether you have recently invested in a brand new cooling system, or have been neglecting your existing air conditioning unit, there is no time like the present to start investigating AC maintenance costs.

Opting for regular professional maintenance of your air conditioner can help extend its life, lower the risk of costly repair bills, and help you and your family stay comfortable on the hottest days of the year.

Keep in mind that your AC maintenance cost will vary depending on the specific model, size, location and condition of your AC unit. The following is a general breakdown of typical air conditioner maintenance and associated pricing.

One-Time Maintenance

One-time maintenance is offered by many HVAC contractors. Home owners may choose to schedule an appointment to have their AC unit serviced if they feel it is not working as efficiently as it should, or if they are encountering a specific issue. If you opt for infrequent, one-time servicing, costs are likely to be higher than with scheduled preventative maintenance plans. Expect to pay a few hundred dollars per visit, and more if any major repairs are required.

Seasonal Maintenance

Seasonal maintenance is a popular choice for home owners looking to keep their air conditioner working well. By having your unit serviced in the spring at the beginning of the cooling season, and again the fall when it’s time to shut down your air conditioner, you can rest easy knowing that your cooling system is ready to perform when you need it.

Maintenance Plans

Maintenance plans are often one of the most affordable options when it comes to your AC maintenance cost. By purchasing a maintenance plan from a certified expert technician, you can ensure that your AC unit is checked on a regular basis to prevent big problems from happening at the most inconvenient times. Maintenance plans like these are usually charged on a monthly basis for a nominal cost, especially if you purchase a plan at the time of installation.

At Evam Canada, we offer affordable AC maintenance services to keep your air conditioner running at peak efficiency for the duration of the cooling season. If your AC unit requires maintenance, needs repair or you’d like to inquire about a brand new air conditioner, get in touch with us today!
