Here are some more checklists points are followings:

  • First you should check the thermostat settings to ensure that the heating and cooling system keeps you comfortable and also saving your energy.

  • Tighten up all the electric connections and also measure the voltage and current on motors because faulty electrical connections can damage your machine or reduce its life also.

  • Lubricate all moving parts.

Other things we can do:

Right amount of refrigerant?

Refrigerant is the blood of your AC or heat pump, and you’ll receive no cooling if your system does not have the right amount (also known as its charge). A professional on our team can quickly determine if you’re operating with low levels.

Repair or Replace Pipe Insulation

Check the conduit pipe that runs between your outside unit and its inside counterpart. When this pipe is properly insulated, it will maximize your energy efficiency and consequently save you money. If your insulation is thin or disintegrated, you can repair or replace it with a layer of fiberglass, foam rubber, or polyethylene foam.

Check the Drainage Line

Algae and mold can build up within your drainage line causing it to either flow slowly or stop flowing altogether. In order to address this, locate your drainage hose, which is usually a one-inch PVC pipe, and follow it to the end where it trains. Once you’ve located the end of the drain line, attach a vacuum hose to the opening. Finally, run the vacuum for a few minutes to clear away any potential mold or algae buildup inside
