Job Details

When: Jun 8, 2017
Service Category: Commercial
Services Performed: Air conditioning maintenance
Brief Explanation

We cannot stress this enough: regular maintenance on your ac unit is extremely important!

Again: AC maintenance is important!

The AC Maintenance Story:

Although we service a lot of residential units, we are definitely a commercial air conditioning company as well. A company called us complaining that their AC unit wouldn't turn on.

Since summer is coming and the heat is going up, this can be a problem out here in southern California. We dispatched a technician for same-day service. (We try to get everybody served on the same day and we succeed 99% of the time!)

Anyway, we train our technicians to give ac system maintenance inspections before they ever start working on the air conditioners simply because this way they'll know really what all the potential problems are. On this day, the tech found out that the ac unit had frozen up.

Literally.

There had not been any ac maintenance done on this unit in years, it seemed, and the filter was found so dirty and clogged that it was restricting air flow to the unit and thus caused the evaporator coil to freeze up and accumulate ice buildup all over it. The customer's cooling was all going there!

This ice buildup basically turned the evaporator coil into the air filter. Not a good sign on any air conditioner.

The AC Maintenance Solution

The solution to this problem is in removing and cleaning the evaporator coil and replacing the filter. That is no simple task. Indeed, the labor can be rather extensive because the coils are often indoors and difficult to reach. They are just plain hard to get to for regular ac maintenance. That's probably what the customer thought, too.

Luckily for us, this was an entire rooftop package unit. That means all the parts were on the outside of the building with relatively easy access. We were able to quickly get everything in good working order again.

As you can see, dirty evaporator coils lead to freezing temperatures... in the wrong place! Low air flow and low efficiency are also clear results from improper maintenance.

Now that customer has us on a regular maintenance schedule so that larger, more expensive, problems an be addressed before they ever get to be larger and more expensive.

As the old saying goes: an ounce of prevention saves a ton of work and headache on the ac maintenance guys later on!

So... let's get your ac unit or furnace scheduled for annual or semi-annual maintenance today!
