One of the most important things you can do for your air conditioner is getting it maintained. Proper running air conditioners cost less to operate and cool your home more efficiently. Adams Heating and Cooling’s trained technicians can maintain your AC system to ensure it’s running at maximum efficiency, so that you’re getting the most out of your unit. Adams covers Kalamazoo, Portage and a 20 mile radius surrounding those areas.
Tune ups cover the checking and cleaning of condenser coils, cleaning drain lines, and checking electrical contacts and compressors. After that, we’ll operate the unit to make sure the charge in the system is proper. The average AC tune up cost is about $89.00. When air conditioner systems are not cleaned or charged properly, utility costs can double, if not triple, during the summer.
Adams services all brands, makes, and models. We work on split systems, package units, and mini splits. The brands we service include Amana, Armstrong, Arcoaire, Airease, Bryant, Bard, Goodman, Carrier, Daikin, Fujitsu, Mitsubishi, Trane, Tempstar, American Standard, Heil, Comfortmaker, Rheem and Lennox. Servicing for all brands is very similar, but some units require different cleaning techniques and our technicians are trained on all of them.
For added peace of mind, Adams offers an annual maintenance plan to service your heating and cooling equipment. This guarantees same-day service if you ever find yourself in a situation without cooling.
There are several things you can maintain yourself:
Change your filters.
Cleaning AC Coils: Wash your air conditioning coil with water. A lot of areas have cottonwood trees and if the outdoor coil looks dirty you can wash it out with water.
AC unit cover: Autumn in Michigan can be messy when it comes to yard debris. You can use an AC unit cover made for your specific model or just use a board with a brick on top to keep leaves and debris out. This is a personal preference. All AC units are designed for outside weather conditions.
Keep grass and bushes cut down around AC unit.
Average AC checklist:
Clean outside coil if it is dirty
Check inside coil and drain lines
Check electrical connection and check if contacts are worn or burnt
Check belts and oil motors if applicable
Cycle unit and adjust refrigerant, charge if necessary
