Cooling Services - Greater Boston Plumbing and Heating

Cooling services in Worcester, MA include routine inspections for your air conditioners at home. But, also included in these types of services is the specific tune-up for your AC in preparation for longer and more frequent use this summer.

Preventative maintenance and tune-ups are recommended because they help ensure a longer life for your in-house cooling system. Regular maintenance is also conducted in order to ensure that your HVAC system will continue running at maximum efficiency and in peak performance. After cleaning your air conditioner of dirt and debris which can hamper its operations, the thermostat is calibrated, the air temperature differential is checked, power consumption is diagnosed, refrigerant level is monitored, and the electrical connections are inspected.

When deemed necessary, there may be scenarios in which your AC service expert will need to do the following:

  • Lubricate fan motors
  • Install replacement filters
  • Secure fan blades
  • Change screws, if missing
  • Tighten all caps
  • Seal the unit
  • Adjust and balance all registers
  • Run heat cycle analysis

Your air conditioning system may work less efficiently and in return cost you additional money in electric bills if you do not take care of it. In addition to having dust and dirt accumulate, certain defects may cause further damage if they are not fixed immediately or before they become severe and more costly to repair. It is important to schedule professional cleanings and tune-ups regularly.
