Air Conditioning Maintenance Checklist

Dirty condenser coils raise refrigerant pressure higher than needed, increasing your electric bill.

A low or high refrigerant charge can easily go unnoticed and increase operating costs up to 30%. An improper charge can cause compressor shutdown.

Controls and safeties that do not function properly can increase operation cost and cause other components to fail.

Worn contacts and loose wire connections can lead to motor or compressor failure

Crankcase heaters that do not work can lead to a compressor failure.

Loose connections can lead to a motor, control, or compressor failure.

An accurate record of your equipment’s vital data can indicate potential problems, which can be eliminated. A record will be kept with the unit which may reduce emergency service time.

Bad capacitors can lead to compressor and motor failure.

A worn or over-heated disconnect blows fuses and is dangerous.

Improperly lubricated rotating equipment will eventually fail.

Loose belts and worn pulleys decrease air flow, increase operating costs and shorten the compressor’s life. Belts crack and break with age.

Algae and dust can plug a condensate drain which can cause extensive water damage to your furnace.

A restricted air filter can cause your air conditioning unit to waste energy and shorten the compressor’s life.

Improper voltage and amp draw increase operating costs and can shorten the life of any motor.

Improperly calibrated thermostats cause the unit to run longer than necessary. Every degree your air conditioner operates below 78 degrees can add 5%-8% to the cost of cooling.

Dirty motors are less efficient and will fail sooner.
