Every Las Vegas summer comes with soaring temperatures. To survive this scorching season, Las Vegas residents spend most of their time indoors and rely on the air conditioner to keep them cool.
Every homeowner needs to schedule a professional AC tune-up to ensure their system works smoothly all summer long. Here’s what you can expect during an AC tune-up from Blue Apple.
Check for leaks
Our licensed HVAC technician will begin by checking for water dripping from tubes or pipes inside the unit. During the inspection, the technician will also clear away dirt and debris from the unit.
Clean the fin and air filter
The AC fin will be cleaned to remove any dust or mold buildup. In addition, the HVAC technician will replace the air filter to ensure the unit is able to pass clean air into the home.
Clean the AC condenser and evaporator fan
Over time, the AC condenser and evaporator fan collect dust and other particles. An AC tune up will involve cleaning these key components in the external unit.
Check refrigerant level
Every AC relies on refrigerant to cool the warm air that is brought from the outdoors. If the refrigerant is leaking, the AC will need repair, or else the unit will stop blowing cool air into the home.
Check the thermostat
During the AC tuneup, the HVAC technician will check to see that the thermostat is functioning properly. Any issues will be brought to the attention of the homeowner before making any repairs.
Inspect electric components
Because the AC is powered by electricity, any issues with the electrical components could affect the entire system. Our technician will look for loose or frayed wires or other signs of damage. The technician will also tighten all electrical connections.
Lubricate moving parts
Proper lubrication of moving parts is key to eliminating friction and excessive wear. When the AC is properly lubricated, the system functions more efficiently and helps reduce monthly energy costs.
Our technician will also check the condition of the blower belt, inspect the ductwork, and measure the amperage and voltage of the blower motor. The thorough process is designed to ensure the AC is in perfect condition and ready for the cooling demands of the summer season.
