AC Maintenance Checklist.

What’s the best recipe for nurturing house plants? Just the right amount of sun and water, for starters. How about for keeping your weight under control? Well, you would do well to eat right, eat several times a day, and get plenty of exercise.

Where are we headed with this? For everything you care about in life, there’s a right and wrong way to protect what’s yours. That goes for your central air conditioning system too. And the two best things you can for it are the following:

  1. Clean or replace the filter every 30 – 60 days or as needed;

  2. Have your system professionally cleaned and inspected once a year.

Why is the latter so important? Well, your AC system works overtime to help keep you and your family cool and comfortable and incurs a lot of wear and tear in the process. With annual preventative maintenance, the home cooling professionals at GBT can keep an eye on it for you which, in turn, leads to fewer repairs, a longer system lifespan, reduced energy costs, and cleaner indoor air.

Here are just some of the steps we employ during an AC cleaning and inspection:

  1. Test thermostat operation and accuracy

  2. Clean or replace filter as needed

  3. Monitor volts/amps on fan motor

  4. Lubricate and inspect bearings for wear

  5. Monitor operating pressure of refrigerant

  6. Inspect safety devices for proper operation

  7. Tighten all electrical connections

  8. Check condenser coil and evaporation coil

  9. Inspect duct work for air leakage

Does annual AC maintenance mean you’ll never have any problems with your system? Ah, if only we could tell you “yes!” But that wouldn’t be true since even well-maintained air conditioning systems have an average lifespan of 15 – 20 years. And yet, at GBT Heating & Cooling, we want every one of those years to count. So call us today to schedule service, and we’ll make sure your AC system gives you the very best in comfort, convenience, and safety it has to offer.
