AC Tune-Up in Liberty Township, Ohio and the Surrounding Areas
This type of service will prepare your system for moderate to heavy use all year long. In addition, a Better Choice HVAC inspection and tune-up will let you identify mechanical issues before they cause a breakdown. We provide in-depth AC tune-ups that include a variety of important services, including:
Checking and Replacing the Air Filter
A dirty filter forces your cooling system to work harder and use more energy to maintain the same temperature. Additionally, a dirty filter will cause pollen, dust, and other contaminants to be recirculated throughout the home.
Inspecting the Thermostat
Your Better Choice HVAC technician will also inspect your thermostat to ensure it’s still functioning well. If the technician finds a problem, they may simply need to recalibrate the unit.
Checking Coolant Levels
Low coolant levels can inhibit the functioning of the air conditioning system in your Liberty Township, OH, home. The low levels will cause the unit’s temperature to drop too low, causing the refrigerant lines and evaporator coil to freeze up.
If your AC unit frequently stops producing cold air, low coolant levels may be the problem. Topping off your coolant levels will help your AC system run better in the hotter weather.
Inspecting the Condenser
Your air conditioner’s condenser is contained in the housing that’s located just outside your home. Although the vents in the unit are designed to keep out pests and debris, damage can still occur.
Our technician will remove the housing to inspect the hoses, wiring, and fan. As a part of the AC tune-up, we will also lubricate the moving components within the unit. Once our technician restores the housing, they will check to ensure the vents are also clear of debris.
Cleaning the Condensate Drain
An AC annual tune-up will also include checking the condensate basin and drainage tube. Over time, sludge and debris can build up in the tube, creating a blockage.
This blockage causes condensation to accumulate in the basin until it overflows and leaks. A blockage is easily prevented if a Better Choice HVAC technician cleans the basin and drainage tube during a seasonal tune-up.
Inspecting the Blower Fan
If you notice that your unit makes a grinding noise as the blower kicks on, it may be due to a damaged fan. Rather than waiting until you need this type of AC maintenance, one of our technicians will inspect the fan and belts. An adjustment of the belts and a tightening of the fan will help prevent damage throughout a season of heavy use.
Evaluating Energy Usage
If you frequently experience blown fuses or circuit interruptions with the use of your HVAC unit, your system may be trying to draw more energy than your home’s wiring can handle.
Our certified technicians can evaluate your unit’s voltage and amperage needs to address electrical issues. If there is a problem, they can determine the best method for fixing problems with the wiring or repairing mechanical issues.
Checking the Cooling Cycles
Any thorough tune-up will involve checking the unit’s cooling cycles to ensure your Liberty Township, OH, home is using energy efficiently.
If the system seems to be resting too long between cycles or runs continuously, the technician will do a deep inspection to determine the problem. By the time the tune-up is complete, we will ensure your HVAC system is operating as efficiently as possible.
Evaluating the Condition of Your System
In addition to fine-tuning the various components of your HVAC system, our technician will evaluate the overall condition of your HVAC unit. If it’s an older system, the technician may recommend planning to replace it in the near future.
Alternatively, they may find components that are starting to fail or running inefficiently. In that case, the technician may fix the problem right away or recommend scheduling a repair or replacement of that component.
Better Choice HVAC will help you extend the life of your heating and cooling system all year round. We will keep your system operating efficiently with inspections, maintenance, and timely repairs. When you do need a new system, we will install a system that fits your budget and meets your total heating and cooling needs.
