Why You Need a Tune-Up

You should have a tune-up every single year, at least once a year. A tune-up and routine maintenance on your system are vital to its continued functioning. It can help to catch minor issues before they turn into major repairs and save you money by keeping your system efficient.


Why We Use a Checklist

A checklist allows us to make sure that we don’t overlook anything. It helps us to conduct a completely thorough inspection of your system from top to bottom, checking every element and aspect of the equipment. It gives you peace of mind knowing that we were as thorough as possible.


Checking Your Exterior Unit

The checklist for your system begins with the exterior unit, where we’ll check for proper operations and functioning of each unit. This includes:

  1. Inspect fan motor bearings
  2. Inspect fan blades for damage and movement
  3. Oil and lubricate the fan motor
  4. Inspect outdoor compression coil
  5. Check electrical outdoor amp draw
  6. Compare against Rated amp draw
  7. Compressor contractor check
  8. Check compressor amp draw

  10. Check the high and low pressure of the unit
  11. Check the compressor terminals
  12. Check the service disconnect
  13. Check all connections and tighten any that are loose

  3. Oil and lubricate the fan motor
