A properly air conditioned home can provide a break from the sweltering New England summers, keeping your family cool and comfortable. To keep everything running correctly, air conditioner maintenance in Southern Maine is the key to a healthy HVAC system.

When the temperature goes up, your air conditioner starts to work harder to cool down and remove moisture from the air. In fact, nearly 80% of system failures happen during the first week of operation. Getting maintenance from a licensed professional can help you reduce the risk of a breakdown in the opening months of summer, which can not only save you money but also potentially prevent an expensive breakdown over the long run.

Heritage Home Service has a dedicated maintenance team serving Southern Maine to help you catch any issues with your air conditioning system before it leaves you hot under the collar.

How Often Should I Schedule Air Conditioner Maintenance?

One of the best investments you can make into your home is annual air conditioner maintenance. In order to keep your warranty valid, most air conditioner unit manufacturers require units to be serviced by a licensed technician once per year. Having an annual maintenance schedule can help you determine the overall health of your unit, including going over the wear and tear from the past year and identifying any potential trouble that could be coming. It isn’t just regular use that can cause air conditioners to fail – manufacturer defects can cause breakdowns early in a unit’s life.

Can I Do My Own Air Conditioner Maintenance?

There are certain easy tasks homeowners can do to ensure their air conditioner stays in top condition. Changing home air filters four times per year and replacing air handler filters every six months can help your air conditioner run well throughout the seasons. When it comes to your outdoor unit, you’ll need some help from a professional.

Attempting to do your own air conditioner maintenance without any experience or training can do a lot more damage than you may realize. Between hazardous components and high voltage wires, attempting to work on your outdoor unit could be dangerous to your health. In addition, you may also need specialized equipment to make sure everything is working correctly.

A licensed technician from Heritage is constantly trained on the latest equipment and specifications, ensuring your outdoor unit will get the best service. On an annual air conditioner maintenance call, our professionals will keep you informed at every step and answer any questions you may have during the process. From there, we’ll explain what we did during the maintenance call, and go over any potential repairs you may need in the near future.

What Issues Can a Technician Troubleshoot During Air Conditioner Maintenance?

When it comes to your home systems, knowledge is power. The more you know, the better prepared you are to keep everything running in top shape. Some of the more common issues our technicians see on an annual service call includes:

  • Outdoor unit wiring damage due to rodents
  • Failed fans or a blower motor at the air handler or outdoor unit
  • Burned out capacitor in the outdoor unit
  • Clogs in outdoor coil fins from debris buildup, cutting air flow
  • Outdoor unit coil leaks from damage or normal wear
  • Fallen ice damage to the outdoor unit or coils
  • Clogged condensate line

While this isn’t the full list of what could happen to your air conditioning unit, these issues are often the ones causing the most problems. With an annual air conditioner maintenance call, our technicians can check to see if these things are affecting your system and make small repairs before they become big problems.
