HVAC technician servicing air conditioner unit

Hello hot weather! Did you know regular air conditioner servicing helps you save money on your energy bills and improve the efficiency of your unit? By getting your air conditioner serviced by a Zoltera technician you will avoid major breakdowns in the future. Below is the complete guide of what is involved in an Air Conditioner Service.

If you've ever wondered when having your air conditioner serviced, "what does the technician even do when he is here?". Below is the complete guide of what is involved in an Air Conditioner Service.


#1: Clean Filters

If any dust or debris has gotten stuck in your air conditioner, this is typically step one - removing any clogged or dirty filters on your unit. At times, these filters may need to be replaced. Due to wildfires, allergens, pollen and overall air quality these filters should be changed once a year.

#2: Check all Refrigerant Levels

Refrigerant is what keeps your air conditioner running, and cooling. Without refrigerant your unit does not work. By checking the refrigerant levels, the technician will ensure the pressures are up to standard as per manufacture specs. Quite often when you have a "No Cool" situation, topping up your refrigerant is a quick fix. But be careful, this is not recommended for a homeowner to complete! Refrigeration can only be handled by a certified HVAC/R technician.

#3: Inspect Air Conditioner Coil and Electrical

Seems like a minor task, but this is crucial for your air conditioner to not have a faulty part or leak. The technician will remove any debris blocking the coil and ensure proper air flow. Also, by checking exposed wires and connections guarantees long term function.

#3: Thermostat Calibration

Sometimes, the thermostat is the problem when it comes to communication between your air conditioner and cooling. By doing a full diagnostic check on your thermostat, the technician can sense your equipment is running smoothly and effectively.
