AC Maintenance

Prevent Major Cooling Issues

B&W is a full-service, family-owned heating and cooling company that has served homeowners in Indianapolis and throughout Central Indiana for more than 60 years. Our NATE-certified technicians are the best in the business.

During annual AC tune up services, our professional HVAC technicians will thoroughly assess the entire system, including the outdoor unit and indoor components, to ensure it operates at optimal efficiency all summer long. A tune up earlier in the year will prevent a major breakdown from occurring during the hottest months of the year, leaving your home filled with warm air.

Our heating and cooling technicians maintain all types of air conditioning equipment, including:

  • Air conditioners
  • Hybrid air conditioners
  • Central air conditioning systems
  • Heat pumps
  • Thermostats
  • Ductless mini splits

How Often Should I Service My AC Unit?

Homeowners often hesitate about spending money on an air conditioner tune up if they don’t think there’s a problem. But proper maintenance keeps your unit running at optimum performance and prevents breakdowns in the heart of summer when your unit is at its busiest. An annual tune up can catch small issues – that you may not even know about – from becoming expensive repairs down the line.

Your air conditioner should be inspected once per year, preferably in spring before you’ve turned it on for the first time. Heat pumps, meanwhile, should be tuned up twice a year – once in the fall before heating season and again in the spring before warmer weather arrives. Give us a phone call, or contact us online today to schedule service.

What’s Included in an Air Conditioner Tune Up?

During a tune up, B&W’s team of heating, air conditioning, and indoor air quality technicians inspects every aspect of your air conditioning unit. Our service includes:

  • Checking and changing the HVAC air filters, if necessary
  • Cleaning and inspecting the condenser coils and evaporator coil
  • Calibrating the thermostat
  • Topping off refrigerant levels, if necessary
  • Inspecting and lubricating all moving parts
  • Checking the compressor to ensure it’s functioning properly
  • Inspecting the system’s electrical connections
  • Checking the blower motor and blower belt
  • Removing any debris that may be blocking the unit
  • Inspecting the AC condensate drain
  • Checking for refrigerant leaks

Benefits of Regular Maintenance for Your Air Conditioner

Routine maintenance of your air conditioner ensures it runs efficiently all season, supplying you with the cool air you need to keep comfortable. Some of the benefits of this yearly maintenance include:

Lowering Energy Bills

A tuned up AC requires less energy use and runs more efficiently, which will save money on your monthly energy bill.

Catching Problems Early

Small problems can quickly grow into large ones if left unnoticed, requiring more frequent attention. Identifying underlying issues during spring AC maintenance will save you money on expensive air conditioner repairs or even cooling system replacement of the entire unit if something critical breaks down.

Prolonging Your Unit’s Lifespan

Maintenance is good for your air conditioner’s overall health. A system that has never received an annual tune up will experience a steady decline in performance and won’t last nearly as long as well-maintained HVAC equipment. The more tune ups that are completed on your AC system, the longer you can go before buying a new system.

Increasing Comfort

A healthier system circulates cleaner air throughout your home, which improves the indoor air quality. This is especially important for people who suffer from allergies, asthma and other respiratory issues.
