Air Conditioner Maintenance Honolulu Hawaii
Did you know your air conditioner needs regular preventative maintenance to run more efficiently and last longer? Just like a car, your air conditioner will run smoother and last longer if you service it regularly. Paying a small amount upfront each year to service your air conditioner will help prevent problems and save you more money in the long run.
Why Is Preventative Maintenance Important?
In the warm climate of Honolulu, air conditioning is a necessity. Having a working air conditioner is something many of us take for granted – until it goes out.
Your air conditioning system is composed of many parts; and just like a car, if one part goes out the whole system can be affected. Regular maintenance from CoolXEnergy can help spot and solve minor problems before they cause bigger issues.
Your air conditioning unit is probably one of the biggest contributors to your electric bill. Keeping it running efficiently is the best way to save money on your energy costs. Even minor issues make your system work harder, taking longer to cool your home or business. A dirty filter, clogged drain line or corroded evaporator coil could be costing you money right now – and you wouldn’t even know it.
Prevent Larger Issues
A leaking drain line or overflowing drain pan will quickly cause costly water damage to your home if it is not caught right away. A refrigerant leak can burn up the compressor, causing it to eventually fail and need replacement. Even a simple buildup of dirt and grass on your condenser coil can have a serious effect on the performance of your A/C unit.
Lengthen Your A/C’s Lifespan
The older your unit is, the more important it is to get it serviced to be sure it’s running properly and ready to go for as many more years as possible. Air conditioning repairs can be a costly and unexpected expense. Make room in your budget now for a service visit so that you don’t have to scramble for the funds to cover a $2,000 replacement part in the middle of the hottest week of the summer!
Don’t wait to learn the hard way when something goes wrong and your whole unit goes out, stay on top of any future or potential issues now by servicing your air conditioner at least once a year.
What’s Included In a Professional A/C Tune-Up?
Your preventative maintenance visit should include a full inspection and cleaning. There are many parts of your system that need to be checked, cleaned, tightened or lubricated. Air conditioning maintenance will typically include:
Changing of the A/C filter – This should ideally be done 2-4 times a year, and is the one part of air conditioner maintenance many homeowners are able to tackle on their own. However, your maintenance technician can also take a look and recommend the best filter for you. You may not be using the correct or most efficient filter for your particular system.
Drain Line Cleaning & Maintenance – Your air conditioner’s condensation drain line is one of the most important parts of your HVAC system. A backed up or leaking drain line can cause serious water damage issues in your home. A regular drain line cleaning also removes and prevents build-up of mold and bacteria. The drain pan will also be checked for any cracks or leaks.
Cleaning of the Evaporator Coil – Your air conditioner’s evaporator coil picks up heat from indoor air. Because it is exposed to continuous airflow, buildup of dust and dirt happens quickly and must be cleaned regularly. Mold growth is also common and must be prevented with regular maintenance in order to ensure a fully functioning system. Because your evaporator coil is located within the air handler, it is not easily accessible to the average homeowner.
Cleaning of the Condensing Coil – Your air conditioner’s condensing coil releases heat into the outdoor air. Since this coil is located outdoors, it is exposed to the elements as well as grass, dust and dirt. It is important to clean your entire outdoor unit at least once a year to prevent any issues and keep your system running smoothly.
Measuring the Refrigerant Levels – Much like a car, your maintenance technician will check levels of your A/C unit’s fluids and top off when needed. If your refrigerant level is unusually low, a leak is often suspected and must be located. Low refrigerant can affect performance and could even eventually cause larger issues in your A/C system.
Checking of Electrical Connections – Electrical wiring should be inspected regularly and tightened when needed.
