Air Conditioning Spring Maintenance Checklist

We all know how important maintenance is — whether it’s your car, home, or health. Keeping up with maintenance helps to prevent future problems and unwanted costs. Home cooling equipment is definitely no exception. Just as a reminder, here in Indianapolis during June and July, the high temperatures average at about 82-85°F. Since our busy season peaks in summer, spring is a great time to call us to ensure your cooling system is in tip-top shape well before those sweltering months hit!

Inspecting a Home Air Vent for Maintenance

From ENERGYSTAR, some of the cooling specific items that we may look out for:

  • Clean evaporator and condenser air conditioning coils. Dirty coils reduce the system’s ability to cool your home and cause the system to run longer, increasing energy costs and reducing the life of the equipment.
  • Check your central air conditioner’s refrigerant level and adjust if necessary. Too much or too little refrigerant will make your system less efficient increasing energy costs and reducing the life of the equipment.
  • Clean and adjust blower components to provide proper system airflow for greater comfort levels. Airflow problems can reduce your system’s efficiency by up to 15 percent.

What Can You Do Yourself?

Inspect, clean, or change air filters once a month in your central air conditioner, furnace, and/or heat pump. Your contractor can show you how to do this. A dirty filter can increase energy costs and damage your equipment, leading to early failure.
