What's Included in Spring AC Maintenance?

Daylight savings time is here, and the winter months are becoming distant memories. Kotz Heating, Cooling & Plumbing can’t be the only ones excited about warmer weather being on the horizon! 

Springtime in the Waterford, MI area is beautiful, but before your mind starts drifting toward school breaks and summer vacations, we need to remind you of an important household task. 

It’s time to make sure your air conditioning system is ready to keep you cool and comfortable during the hot and humid months that are around the corner. 

One of the best ways to ensure your AC is tuned-up is by scheduling a spring AC maintenance service with the HVAC professionals at Kotz. In this blog post, Kotz will discuss what’s included in spring AC maintenance and why it’s important for your HVAC system, home, and your loved ones.

Why Spring AC Maintenance Is Important

Before we dive into what’s included in spring AC maintenance, let’s first talk about why it’s important. Your air conditioning system works hard to keep your home cool, especially during the summer months when temperatures creep up and humidity levels soar. Over time, dirt, dust, and other debris can build up in your AC unit, reducing its efficiency and causing it to work harder than necessary. This can lead to higher energy bills and potential breakdowns.

By scheduling regular AC maintenance with Kotz Heating, Cooling & Plumbing, you can ensure that your system is running smoothly and efficiently, saving you money on energy costs and preventing costly repairs down the line. Spring is the perfect time to schedule maintenance because it allows HVAC technicians to identify any issues that may have arisen over the winter months and address them before the summer heat sets in.

What’s Included in Spring AC Maintenance

So, what exactly is included in spring AC maintenance? While the specifics may vary depending on the HVAC company you choose, most spring AC maintenance services typically include the following:

1. Inspection of the Outdoor Unit

The outdoor unit of your air conditioning system is sometimes in extreme weather. It’s susceptible to dirt, debris, and other contaminants. During spring AC maintenance, HVAC technicians will thoroughly inspect the outdoor unit, cleaning the coils and removing any debris that may have accumulated. This helps ensure proper airflow and optimal performance.

2. Cleaning or Replacement of Air Filters

Air filters play a crucial role in maintaining indoor air quality and ensuring efficient operation of your AC system. Over time, air filters can become clogged with dust, dirt, and other particles, restricting airflow and reducing efficiency. During spring AC maintenance, technicians will inspect and clean or replace the air filters as needed to ensure proper airflow and indoor air quality.

3. Check Refrigerant Levels

Refrigerant is the substance that cools the air in your AC system. If your system is low on refrigerant, it can lead to reduced cooling capacity and increased energy consumption. During spring AC maintenance, technicians will check the refrigerant levels and recharge the system if necessary to ensure optimal performance.

4. Inspection of Electrical Components

Your air conditioning system contains various electrical components, such as wiring, capacitors, and relays, that play a crucial role in its operation. During spring AC maintenance, technicians will inspect these components for any signs of wear or damage, tightening connections and replacing any faulty parts as needed to prevent breakdowns and ensure safe operation.

5. Calibration of Thermostat

The thermostat is the control center of your air conditioning system, allowing you to set and adjust the temperature to your liking. During spring AC maintenance, technicians will calibrate the thermostat to ensure accurate temperature readings and efficient operation.

6. Lubrication of Moving Parts

Your AC system contains many moving parts, such as motors, fans, and bearings, that require lubrication to reduce friction and prevent premature wear and tear. During spring AC maintenance, technicians will lubricate these moving parts to ensure smooth and efficient operation.

7. Test Run

Once all maintenance tasks have been completed, technicians will perform a test run of your air conditioning system to ensure everything is working correctly. This allows them to identify any issues that may have been overlooked and address them before they become larger problems.
