Air Conditioning Maintenance & Repairs

Reliability Leaders: SolvIt.
Certain household items are purchases; others are investments. Your central air conditioning system is definitely one of the latter.
Like any investment worth having, your system needs proper care and attention to help protect its value and keep it in top working shape. That’s especially important if any family members have health conditions that make a constant flow of conditioned air a necessity.
At SolvIt, we employ a multi-point tune-up and inspection process that enables us to spot problems in the making while prepping your system for another season of faithful and uninterrupted service. Our many tune-up steps include the following:
- Test thermostat operation and accuracy
- Clean or replace filters as needed
- Monitor volts/amps on fan motor
- Lubricate and inspect bearings for wear
- Flush/treat condensate drain
- Monitor operating pressure of refrigerant
- Inspect safety devices for proper operation
- Tighten all electrical connections
- Inspect electrical system for exposed wiring
- Check condenser coil and evaporation coil
- Measure temperature difference – supply/return
- Inspect duct work for air leakage
- Clean debris from around the condenser
Once completed and all adjustments made, you can be confident that your air conditioning is ready for the hot stuff.
What Can Go Wrong With Your Central Air System?
Your central air conditioner is a complex mechanical and electrical system with umpteen working parts…meaning that there are umpteen things that can go wrong that would cause it to malfunction or completely shut down.
Here are just a few of the most common system problems, each one of which is no match for a SolvIt AC technician:
- Improper installation or service –Improper installation can result in such problems as leaky ducts and low airflow. On the service side, unqualified technicians often fail to find refrigerant charging problems or even worsen existing problems by adding refrigerant to a system that is already full.
- Refrigerant Leaks – If your air conditioner is low on refrigerant, either it was undercharged at installation, or it leaks. A trained technician should fix any leak, test the repair, and then charge the system with the correct amount of refrigerant.
- Inadequate Maintenance – If you allow filters and air conditioning coils to become dirty, the air conditioner will not work properly, and the compressor or fans are likely to fail prematurely.
- Electric Control Failure – The compressor and fan controls can wear out, especially when the air conditioner turns on and off frequently, as is common when a system is oversized. Because corrosion of wire and terminals is also a problem in many systems, electrical connections and contacts should be checked during a professional service call.
- Sensors – Improperly working sensors will fail to properly read the temperature in the home or from your thermostat. So, it might be 80+ degrees in your home but if the thermostat reads it as 72, the system won’t turn on. The air conditioner itself probably still works fine, but unless it can successfully read the temperature, you won’t get the cooling you need to stay comfortable.
Ultimately, this is all you really need to know. If anything goes wrong with your current system, the experienced team of SolvIt HVAC technicians will diagnose, explain, and fix the problem with a minimum of delay, and a maximum of professional skill and customer courtesy.
