Did you know that a regular air conditioner checkup can save you a lot of money on AC repair? It’s true! Just like your car, performing routine maintenance at certain mile markers can help prevent potential problems with your air conditioning system. While AC systems don’t have oil that needs to be changed every few thousand miles, they have other components that should be checked each year for common wear and tear. Even a system that’s only a few years old can begin to develop issues that could cause larger problems down the road if not addressed sooner than later.

This is why Heritage always recommends routine annual air conditioner maintenance to all of our customers.

What is Usually Found During Air Conditioner Maintenance?

It really depends on the age of your system, how well it was designed for your home, and how recently it was maintained in the past. Most often we find older, neglected systems to have many issues, but some of the following can be found in air conditioners of any age:

  • Rodent damage to wiring in the outdoor unit
  • Failed fan/blower motor at the air handler or outdoor unit
  • Fail capacitor in the outdoor unit
  • Debris build-up in outdoor coil fins restricting airflow
  • Leaking outdoor coil due to damage or wear and tear
  • Damage to the outdoor unit due to fallen ice
  • Clogged condensate line

As we alluded to earlier, annual maintenance can help prevent any and all of the above issues, avoiding costly and unexpected breakdowns when you need your AC the most.

Can You Perform Air Conditioner Maintenance Without a Professional?

While it’s possible to perform some basic maintenance as a homeowner, such as replacing filters at the air handler, or keeping your indoor units clean (if ductless) – getting the most out of your system’s performance each year will require a licensed HVAC technician. The components that make up an air conditioning system are potentially dangerous if handled improperly, and certain aspects of a complete maintenance can only be performed with proper knowledge and access to specialized tools and equipment.

Our fully licensed and dedicated maintenance team goes through hours of in-class and on-the-job training to meet certification and licensing requirements. They’ll know what to look for as common failure points during the maintenance, and in the event that you do need a repair or new AC installation, you already have a trained professional who is able to get it done right then and there.
