– Test for any refrigerant leaks with the use of a leak detector.

– Measure airflow through the evaporator coil.
– Inspect electric terminals, clean and tighten connections and apply a non-conductive coating. If necessary apply lubricant and check belts for tightness and deterioration.

Air Conditioning Preventive Maintenance Services

During Ambient Heating and Air Conditioning air conditioning maintenance service we perform the following tasks:
Air Conditioner Coils:
The evaporator coil and condenser coil are prone to collecting dirt over time. When replacing or cleaning your filter routinely, you can minimize the evaporator coil from premature buildup. But the evaporator coil will still collect dirt buildup eventually. The dirt buildup greatly reduces airflow and insulates the coil, restricting its ability to absorb heat. Outdoor condenser coils can also become very dirty with a combination of nearby foliage and the outdoor elements. To minimize the dirt and debris near the condenser unit, clean out dryer vents, maintain falling leaves, and keep the foliage trimmed away from your unit.
Coil Fins:
The aluminum fins on evaporator and condenser coils are easily bent and can block airflow through the coil. Ambient Heating and Air Conditioning will not only make sure they are clean, but will ensure they are straightened out.
Condensate Drains:
Clogged drain channels prevent a unit from reducing humidity, and the resulting excess moisture may discolor walls or carpet. Ambient Heating and Air Conditioning will ensure the condensate drains are clear of clogs for efficiency.
