How To Save On Air Conditioning

Do you like to save money? We all do.

But if you aren’t providing regular maintenance and tune-ups to your air conditioning system you could be losing hundreds of dollars a year on your home utility bills. Over the course of the year, your AC unit accumulates dust and dirt, making it less efficient and leading to higher energy costs. F.H. Furr offers a complete 25-step precision tune-up of your air conditioning or AC system that will ensure your unit is operating as efficiently as possible and not wasting money.

Your A/C Tune-Up Includes:

    1. Visually inspect capacitors for leakage and rust
    2. Inspect readily accessible ducts for obvious air leaks
    3. Complete operations sequence check
    4. Check crankcase heater for proper maintenance
    5. Inspection of air filtration system
    6. Inspect blower wheel
    7. Inspect blower and motor and record AMP draw (lubricate as needed)
    8. Replacement of filter provided by customer while on site at time of inspection
    9. Inspect unit wiring and electrical disconnect
    10. Check and calibrate thermostat as required
    11. Tighten screw lug terminals in condensing unit
    12. Inspect contractor for pits or burns
    13. Check and record AMP draw of condenser motor and compressor
    14. Inspect fan blade for cracks or defects
    15. Check condenser motor bearings, lubricate non sealed condenser motor bearings (when necessary)
    16. Inspect indoor coil if accessible
    17. Inspect any condensate drain pans and drains for proper operation
    18. Check and record operating pressures and temperatures
    19. Inspect and clean outdoor unit (does not include use of detergent)
    20. Check refrigerant level (when outside temp>60 degrees F)
    21. Inspect cooling system for unusual vibration or loose parts
    22. Inspect and flush condensate lines and check condensate pump operation (if equipped)
    23. Check evaporator for adequate airflow
    24. Lubricate furnace/boiler blower or air handler
    25. Check overall operation of system

An inspection ensures your equipment is operating safely and is a great way to guarantee that you won’t be caught off guard with an unforeseen air conditioning breakdown this summer — when demand for air conditioner service and repair is at its peak. Preventive maintenance also saves money by maximizing efficiency and minimizing costly breakdowns.
