Most homeowners search for an AC repair service when an issue has already presented itself. This could be mitigated more than half the time if an ac installation is maintained and tune-ups are performed at least once a year. Not only do tune-ups extend the life of your unit but they also keep the energy efficiency at the levels that they were when the unit was installed.
Here at True North Air Conditioning, we can’t stress enough how important annual air conditioning maintenance can be.
We can fix and maintain minute issues with your cooling system before they require major repairs or AC replacement. Below are a few of the benefits of having regular AC Maintenance performed on your unit:
AC tune up services are a must if you want your air conditioner to run optimally. These services can prevent costly repairs and replacements. In addition, regular maintenance of your air conditioning system will increase its lifespan, prevent breakdowns, and prevent costly parts from corroding and overheating.

We have a 25 point inspection sheet where we take detailed notes and readings from the system. Here are some of the things we check when performing a maintenance or tune-up:
Cleaning the evaporator coils on your condenser improves the efficiency of your entire system. Dirty coils cause the system to “reject less heat” raising the head pressure of the system.
First, inspect the drain and refrigerant lines to ensure that they are free of debris and clogs. Also check the electrical contacts to make sure they are not pitted or frayed. Poor wiring can lead to fires or damaged equipment.
The condenser is the beating heart of an AC system. It contains the compressor, the contactor, the condenser coil, the fan motor and blade as well as a multitude of other sensitive electrical components. It is also the only component of the AC system to be exposed to direct sunlight in the case of a split system application. The direct sunlight as well as the constant operation when the unit is running make the condenser the component that usually needs regular maintenance due to prolonged heat exposure.
The single biggest issue that we face when fixing systems is customers that don’t regularly change their air filters. Not only does an air filter clean the air we breath, it also protects the equipment. In most cases the unit in the attic draws air from the return air grille and passes it over the blower and wheel assembly. Running a system with a dirty air filter or no filter at all can cause the blower wheel assembly to become a resting place for dust, allergens and in some cases, mold.
Just after the blower sits the most brilliant part of an AC system: the evaporator coil. The “evap” coil has cold refrigerant passing through it while simultaneously absorbing return air heat. The heat causes the liquid refrigerant to evaporate into a gas once again so it can safely travel back to the compressor, completing the cycle. The evaporator can become clogged with particles that the air filter didn’t catch causing the coil to become unable to absorb the heat of the house which can lead to premature compressor failure.
During air conditioning maintenance, an inspection of condensate drains is important. We check them to ensure that they are free of debris and clogs. The condensate drain is typically a white PVC pipe that usually drains to the outside of the house. When inspecting a condensate drain, it is important to identify the location of the drain. The most common places for these drain lines are the side of the house six inches above the ground and up high about 8ft or above. Failure to maintain the functionality of a condensate drain is the leading cause of AC related insurance claims in the world.
