Vancouver Air Conditioning Company Offers Advice to Help Families Prevent Future Problems and Unwanted Costs

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - April 21, 2016) - Ask the technicians at Pro Ace Heating & Air Conditioning Services about maintenance, and they'll explain that an air conditioner is just like a car -- it needs a little TLC to keep running smoothly.

"It's always best to do pre-season maintenance," says a company representative. "Once the summer arrives, our technicians are busy, so it's a good idea to check your AC in the spring."

A typical maintenance regime typically consists of the following:

  • Check thermostat settings to ensure the cooling and heating systems are responsive and working at optimal levels.
  • Secure all connections and measure the voltage and current on motors. Faulty connections are not only a safety hazard but also reduce the life of components.
  • Lubricate moving parts to minimize friction. Bad lubrication not only leads to wear and tear, it typically uses more energy to operate.
  • Inspect the condensate drain to ensure it's clean and clear. A plugged drain can cause water damage and affect indoor humidity levels.
  • Check system controls to ensure proper and safe operation. Check the starting cycle of the equipment to ensure the system starts, operates, and shuts off properly.
  • Clean evaporator and condenser coils. Dirty coils reduce the system's ability to cool your home, causing the system to run longer, which increases energy costs and wear on the equipment.
  • Check refrigerant levels and adjust if necessary to ensure optimal operation.
  • Clean and adjust blower components to ensure proper airflow. Problems with the blower component can reduce efficiency by up to 15 percent.

To keep your home clean and comfortable, it's important to inspect, clean, and change air filters at least once a year.

"This is particularly important in the spring season when the system can get plugged with pollen, which reduces air quality in the home. Additionally, a dirty filter can increase energy costs and in extreme cases lead to early system failure. It's always best and far more affordable to invest in maintenance and avoid costly repair bills later on."
