Air Conditioning Maintenance and Servicing

Manufacturer’s recommend regular servicing and inspection for air conditioners. Scheduling regular maintenance, typically early spring, to maintain the units peak energy efficiency and safe operation and extend the life-cycle of the air conditioner.

Without regular maintenance and servicing an air conditioner will use more energy as its efficiency declines resulting from poor performance.

Home owners can provide some basic maintenance but most require a licensed HVAC technician who are skilled and experienced in detecting issues which could lead to bigger, more expensive, problems unless otherwise corrected.

Maintenance You Can Do

There are some simple procedures you can do annually to help keep your air conditioner run efficiently.

  • Change or clean the filters. When airflow becomes obstructed by debris dirt can reach the evaporator coil reducing its heat-absorbing capacity. A dirty filter can increase your energy consumption by as much as 15%.
  • The air conditioner evaporator and condenser coils collect dust, dirt and debris and need to be cleaned in order for the air conditioner to function at peak performance levels.
  • Coil fins made of lightweight aluminum can bend and damage easily which can block airflow moving through the coil. Coil fins should be adjusted into near-original condition.
  • Check condensate drains should be inserted and cleaned if they have become clogged or plugged.
  • Late in autumn you should cover the central air conditioner to protect it from leaves and debris while also protecting it from Calgary’s winter elements.
