Spring is the best time to schedule a tune-up for your Blufton, SC’s AC system because the technicians aren’t extra busy. AC maintenance services help prolong your system’s life, increase its efficiency and help avoid costly repairs. Below, you’ll learn what our technicians will do during each maintenance procedure.
We Tune The Thermostat
Usually, your thermostat works with the air conditioner to cool your living space. After you key in your temperature preferences on the thermostat, the device sends the instructions to your AC system. The air conditioner then lowers the temperature to your liking.
With time, the thermostat’s accuracy in detecting your home’s temperature may lower if dust blocks contact points. This scenario causes your device to send wrong instructions to your AC. Our professional technicians will calibrate the thermostat to accurately detect your temperature.
We Clean The Evaporator Coil
The evaporator coil’s role is to absorb heat from indoor air to cool your living space. When dust and debris clog this coil, it cannot absorb heat efficiently. If your system struggles to absorb heat, it would have to work harder and longer to cool your home. Consequently, it will use more energy, causing your electricity bill to shoot up.
During the maintenance operation, our trained technicians will clean any foreign matter interfering with the performance of the evaporator coil. We can use a specialized coil cleaner to ensure no debris is left behind.
We Clean The Condenser Coil
The condenser coil works with the evaporator coil to regulate the temperature in your living space. It essentially releases the excess heat outside your home. When twigs, leaves, and grass clogs the coil, they interfere with its ability to release the hot air.
Our professional technicians will clean the fins using a special brush to remove the debris. We can also unplug the system and use a hose to clean accumulated grime.
