Air Conditioning Checklist

  • 1Condenser Coil – Cleaned as required
    Dirty condenser coils raise refrigerant pressure higher than needed, increasing your electric bill.
  • 2Refrigerant Charge – Checked by superheat/sub cooling method (Thermo charging)
    A low or high refrigerant charge can easily go unnoticed and increase operating costs up to 30%. An improper charge can cause compressor shutdown.
  • 3Controls & Safeties – Inspected & tested
    Controls and safeties that do not function properly can increase operation cost and cause other components to fail.
  • 4Relays & Contactors – Inspected & cleaned
    Worn contacts and loose wire connections can lead to motor or compressor failure.
  • 5Crankcase Heater – Operationally inspected
    Crankcase heaters that do not work can lead to a compressor failure.
  • 6Unit Wiring – Inspected & loose connections tightened
    Loose connections can lead to a motor, control, or compressor failure.

  • 7Temperature & Pressures – Taken & recorded
    An accurate record of your equipment’s vital data can indicate potential problems, which can be eliminated. A record will be kept with the unit which may reduce emergency service time.
  • 8Capacitors – Tested
    Bad capacitors can lead to compressor and motor failure.
  • 9Unit Disconnect – Tested
    A worn or over-heated disconnect blows fuses and is dangerous.
  • 10Lubrication – Application to motors & bearings.
    Improperly lubricated rotating equipment will eventually fail.
  • 11Belts & Pulleys – Inspected & adjusted
    Loose belts and worn pulleys decrease air flow, increase operating costs and shorten the compressor’s life. Belts crack and break with age.
Unit Disconnect
  • 12Condensate Drain – Checked to assure it is open
    Algae and dust can plug a condensate drain which can cause extensive water damage to your furnace.
  • 13Air Filter – Replaced at customer’s option
    A restricted air filter can cause your air conditioning unit to waste energy and shorten the compressor’s life.
  • 14Voltage & Amp – Draw of the blower motor, compressor & condenser fan motors checked & recorded
    Improper voltage and amp draw increase-operating costs and can shorten the life of any motor.
  • 15Thermostat – Checked & calibrated
    Improperly calibrated thermostats cause the unit to run longer than necessary. Every degree your air conditioner operates below 78 degrees can add 5%-8% to the cost of cooling.
  • 16Motors – Cleaned & inspected
    Dirty motors are less efficient and will fail sooner.
