Property ownership comes with its perks. However, it also comes with a number of responsibilities, key among them being property tax. The next most important responsibility is maintenance of the property. There are many systems in residential and commercial properties that require regular maintenance. AC maintenance is important because indoor temperatures during the hot summer months can soar to dangerous levels, so every property needs to have a properly working air conditioning system. If not, the occupants may be forced to escape to the outside or risk developing heat stoke.
AC Maintenance Tips
The air conditioning machine in a building needs to be maintained after every couple of months, especially during the hot months of the year. Maintenance should be done by professionals who are licensed, certified and experienced in air conditioner maintenance. If possible, property owners should hire HVAC technicians who have been factory-trained and approved to handle the type of equipment they have on their property.
The most important maintenance procedure is inspection of the air conditioning system to identify flaws in the system. For instance, the ductwork will be checked for dust and debris. The thermostat will also be checked to see if it is off calibration. The level of the refrigerant in the system as well as electrical connections will also be checked. If there is mold in the system, the technician can find ways to deal with the problem.
After inspection, the technicians will open up the AC, clean the air ducts, fan blades, refrigerant coils and any other component of the AC system. The old air filter will also be removed for cleaning or replacement. The next step is lubrication of all moving parts to reduce wear and tear caused by friction. If the level of the refrigerant is low, a recharge will be done to fill up the tank. After maintenance, you can expect the cooling system to work flawlessly to keep your home or business premise cool during the hot summer days and nights.
