Indications That Your Air Conditioner Is in Need of a Tune-up

The best way to keep your AC unit properly running at peak efficiency is to simply schedule professional maintenance checkups. After all, we all make appointments regularly to ensure that our automobiles are working properly. 

Our AC systems deserve as much care for all the hard work they must go through in keeping our homes cool. Because air conditioners undergo so much use, they may even require additional inspections from time to time, particularly if you are noticing that something is a bit off.

Some of the warning signals that your AC rapidly requires a tune-up include:

  • Your air conditioning unit is simply never able to completely cool all the rooms in your house
  • The thermostat reading does not seem to match the actual feeling of the room
  • Your utility bills have suddenly climbed recently
  • The air conditioner has to run for a long time before the temperature finally drops
  • Your system makes loud groaning or banging sounds

Meeting the Highest Industrial Standards for AC Maintenance

When our technicians at Blue Water Climate Control start our inspection on your air conditioner, you will never need to worry about a sub-par, cursory check that barely looks at the surface of your system. 

Instead, our HVAC specialists utilize only the highest standards directly obtained from the industry, in light of certified information from the Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA). 

Because our professionals use such a detailed checklist to examine your system, you can be sure that they will catch any minor issues and handle them immediately before they develop into larger problems. 

AC Maintenance that Makes a Difference

We follow the guidance of ACCA Standard 4, Maintenance of Residential HVAC Systems. This manufacturer-endorsed, nationally-recognized publication provides detailed inspection tasks for every part of your HVAC system. 

It also provides the recommended actions and minor repairs needed to keep your AC running smoothly. Common maintenance tasks include visual inspection, light cleaning, and minor adjustments. These maintenance tasks should always be performed by an HVAC professional. Air conditioner maintenance task lists from ACCA 4:

  • Ductwork
  • Evaporator coil
  • Condenser unit (Straight cool and heat pump)
  • Air handler
  • Packaged units (Gas furnace/electric and heat pump)
  • Geothermal
  • Accessories (humidifiers, dehumidifiers, air cleaners, UV lights, etc.)

Each maintenance task list provides a list of inspection tasks, maintenance tasks, frequency, and recommended action. Here are a few example tasks from ACCA 4:

Homeowner Maintenance tips

Regularly change your air filters. Reduced or restricted airflow will accelerate wear and tear on your ENTIRE HVAC system. Think of a clean filter as a cool glass of water. Your indoor unit will thank you.

Do not allow vegetation to grow within 12" of your outdoor unit. Nothing reduces the life of AC units more than heat. The heart of your air conditioner is in that outside unit.
