What Happens During Routine Ductless System Maintenance?

We can’t stress just how important it is that you have preventive maintenance conducted on your ductless heating and cooling system. In order to get the best performance that your system has to offer, it’s vital that you invest in maintenance.

Many homeowners accept this at face value and schedule maintenance. However many others fear it may be a waste of their money. We understand, so we’ve shared some information below that indicates just how important maintenance is.

Maintenance Allows for Thorough Cleaning

In order to help ensure that your AC system is capable of distributing conditioned air effectively through your home, our professionals will thoroughly clean your entire system. This helps your system work more efficiently and can help prevent uneven cooling.

We Also Lubricate Moving Parts

When the parts of your air conditioner rub together, the friction creates wear and tear. That is, it creates wear and tear if it doesn’t have appropriate lubrication. Professional lubrication reduces excessive friction that can negatively affect your energy efficiency.

A Tune-Up Allows Us to Make Adjustments

Tightening electrical connections within and around your air conditioning unit helps the system to operate safely and effectively. The voltage and current on the motors can also be measured at this time.

We’ll Check Your Refrigerant Level

Your AC system is ideally supplied with enough refrigerant upon installation to last its entire lifespan. If you are losing refrigerant, you have a leak that we must repair before we can recharge the refrigerant.

Lastly, We’ll Look at Your Thermostat

Your system controls should be checked for proper operation during your maintenance appointment. This ensures that your AC system is able to start up properly and that it can run and shut down as it should.
