What is involved in air conditioner service?
- Wash outside coil or condensing coil. This is found inside the casing of the central unit, most commonly seen as the main unit of central air conditioners. The mini-split unit has a small casing unit that is shorter and rectangular in shape.
- Clean indoor evaporator coil. The evaporator coil works with the indoor unit, found in both central and mini split air conditioners to cool and condition indoor air that flows over it by extracting heat and moisture.
- Check and clean drains that flow from the exterior unit to the interior unit and back and in central air conditioning units drain out of the system properly to a drain pipe found near the unit. Keeping condensate drains cleaned prevents harmful contaminants like mold, mildew, and other bacteria from growing in the pipe
- Check operation and electrical components to ensure that your cooling system is efficiently operating and will continue to work throughout the year.
- Check refrigeration and temperature readings to calibrate your cooling system to ensure that when it's hot outside your system keeps you cool inside.
