To keep the air conditioner in your Quintana, Texas, home working properly, regular maintenance on your unit is essential. Have you scheduled a tuneup for your air conditioner? Discover four components your HVAC technician should check during an annual maintenance visit to your home.
When your HVAC technician completes a seasonal air conditioner tuneup, your service tech should make sure your thermostat is calibrated correctly. If you encounter difficulties keeping the temperature in your home comfortable, your thermostat might need to be recalibrated.
Once your technician checks and makes any necessary thermostat repairs, you can feel confident that the temperature you set on your thermostat will be the temperature your air conditioner will match.
Inspecting and cleaning the condensate drain line is necessary for proper air conditioner maintenance. When your air conditioner cools warm air, water vapor condenses and flows down the condensate line to your home’s sewer connection.
To prevent blockages and mold growth, your HVAC technician should check and clean your air conditioner’s condensate line during a maintenance visit.
When your service tech checks the blower motor in your home’s air conditioner, your technician should make sure the motor is free of debris and dirt. A clogged motor can overheat, leading to a burnout and system failure. When your air conditioner’s blower motor is clean, you can reduce the chances of system breakdowns during a sultry Texas summer.
Electrical Controls and Connections
Over time, your air conditioner’s electrical connections and controls can wear out. Frayed or broken connections affect your air conditioner’s efficiency and its safe operation. During a seasonal maintenance visit, your HVAC technician should check your air conditioner’s electrical components and clean or replace parts as necessary.
