Our Preventive Maintenance Programs for Commercial HVAC Air Conditioning systems are performed by our well-trained service technicians who can find and address concerns before complex problems shut your system down. Every piece of equipment we cover in our contracts has a performance log sheet assigned. These performance log sheets are completed while we test your equipment and are also used to help us track any changes in performance from the previous years. Your HVAC system is the most expensive investments for your business, and a service plan is an excellent way to protect your investment. In addition, industry studies have shown that regular service for a Commercial HVAC Air Conditioning system increases the longevity of the system by 30 percent.

Residential AC Maintenance

All Climate Mechanical also advises their customers about some basic steps that they can take to keep the their home air conditioning unit operating in good condition. Dirty air filters can adversely affect a system’s performance. Air filters should be changed or washed at least every two months. The outdoor condenser should be checked for any debris and away from any blocking objects, such as boxes or chairs. Blocking objects can affect air flow, and sticks and debris can clog the system or break a fan blade. When mowing, consumers should always mow in a direction away from the outdoor condenser. This is to prevent the system from getting clogged due to grass blades. Some simple self-maintenance is the ideal way to keep your AC system operating efficiently.

The Clean Air Act

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) made changes to the Clean Air Act in 1989. In January 2020, the EPA will enforce a ban on Freon. As a result, business and homeowners will be required to replace units that operate on Freon by that date. The new alternative will be Puron. Puron is non-flammable, non-toxic and has no negative impact on the environment. It also helps air conditioners and heat pumps operate more efficiently. Many of All Climate Mechanical’s Commercial HVAC Air Conditioning customers have reported impressive energy cost savings after switching to Puron. We highly recommends that customers upgrade their old Commercial HVAC Air Conditioning systems from Freon to Puron before the ban to capture the energy cost savings. All Climate Mechanical provides Commercial HVAC Air Conditioning services and maintenance. We are an expert HVAC company where customers can expect superior products, superior technicians and superior service.

 

To save money on your air conditioning bills and get your system into peak performance, you need to perform several maintenance steps or better yet, have one of our well-trained service technicians take a look at it.

Your HVAC system runs 24/7, either heating or cooling your home, and during that time, it gathers dust, burns the dust, and it creates deposits that will slow the unit down. A coil that’s filled with dust just won’t work right.

The most important maintenance task that will ensure the efficiency of your air conditioner is to routinely replace or clean its filters. Clogged, dirty filters block normal airflow and reduce a system’s efficiency significantly. With normal airflow obstructed, air that bypasses the filter may carry dirt directly into the evaporator coil and impair the coil’s heat-absorbing capacity. Replacing a dirty, clogged filter with a clean one can lower your air conditioner’s energy consumption by 5% to 15%.

Some types of filters are reusable while others must be replaced. You’ll want to clean or replace your air conditioning system’s filter or filters every month during the cooling season for optimal performance. Filters may need more frequent attention if the air conditioner is in constant use, is subjected to dusty conditions, or you have a furry pet.

Your air conditioner’s evaporator coil and condenser coil collect dirt over their months and years of service. A clean filter prevents the evaporator coil from soiling quickly. In time, however, the evaporator coil will still collect dirt. This dirt reduces airflow and insulates the coil, reducing its ability to absorb heat. To avoid this problem, check your evaporator coil every year and clean it as necessary.

You should also minimize dirt and debris near the condenser unit. Your dryer vents, falling leaves, and lawn mower are all potential sources of dirt and debris. Cleaning the area around the coil, removing any debris, and trimming foliage back at least 2 feet (0.6 meters) allow for adequate airflow around the condenser.

Proper maintenance of your air conditioning equipment will help keep it running more efficiently and will often extend the life of the equipment.  Therefore, we recommend you hire us to perform your air conditioning maintenance. Our experienced technicians will:

We provide the following services:

  • Check and clean the condensate drain for proper drainage
  • Check all wiring for loose connections
  • Check electrical relays
  • Check and record condenser fan motor amp draw vs. actual amps
  • Check and record refrigerant pressures
  • Refill refrigerant as needed (with customer approval)
  • Check temperature difference between supply and return
  • Inspect tubing and coils for any leaks
  • Replace standard air filter
  • Clean condenser coil

When you compare the cost of a simple inspection to the cost of replacing the unit, you’ll see – it pays have your unit looked at periodically. Call us today to schedule your maintenance appointment at 763-548-8095.
