Air Conditioning Tune-up
- Thermostat – Check for loose connections that may cause unit to short cycle. Calibrate temperature readings and adjust if necessary.
- Split Temperature – Measure temperature drop as air passes through evaporative coil. Temperature drop should be approximately 20 degrees.
- Air Distribution – Check air flow throughout the home. Ensure air flow is not restricted. Examine plenum, supply and return ductwork.
- Disconnect Box – Make sure all connections are tight. Check for signs of metal fatigue or signs of over-heating (bluish green).
- Fuses – Check fuse condition. If fuse is swollen or bad, check disconnect box for loose connection or leaks that may be permitting water inside.
- Contactors – Check switch for worn or pitted points. Check part for possible discoloration or burnt wires.
- Start-kit/Relays/Transformers – Inspect all parts for loose wiring or worn out parts and ensure parts are securely mounted.
- Run Capacitors – Check Microfarads on all caps. Recommend replacement if they are not within 6%. Check for oil leaks or voltage drop.
- Compressor – Check starting amp draw along with running amps. Compare to unit ratings. Look for burnt wires at compressor terminal.
- Freon – Check system pressures to ensure proper charge on unit. If the system needs mores than 2 lbs., do not add Freon until leak is found and repaired.
- Condenser Motor – Check amp draw against max ratings. If needed, oil motor. Check for bearings or damaged fan blade.
- Condenser Coil – Check temperature split on coil. Should be approximately 30 degrees. Ensure coil is clean of debris and the fins are not damaged.
- Evaporative Coil – Check and make sure both sides of coil are clean. Dirty coils or leaks cause poor system performance and early breakdown.
- Plenum – Make sure the plenum (elbow) is sealed correctly and that no air is escaping to the outside. 8 out of 10 elbows leak, usually underneath.
- Thermocouple – Ensure the thermocouple is in its proper position. Look for signs of deterioration or crystals that be may starting to develop.
- Blower Motor – Check motor amperage and compare it to the motor ratings. Oil motor if needed. Check to ensure proper motor speed.
- Ductwork – Check both the supply and return air ducts for cleanliness. Check to see if any air ducts have collapsed or separated.
- CRun Capacitors – Check Microfarads on all caps. Recommend replacement if they are not within 6%. Check for oil leaks or voltage drop.
- Heat Anticipator – Ensure thermostat is properly set. If not , set anticipator to proper amperage. Wrong setting will lead to short cycling.
- Limit Switches & Fan Control – Check fan control for proper cut-in and cut-out. Disconnect the power to blower and test upper limit switch.
- Burners – Check for a solid blue flame. If orange or yellow flame appears, look for a cracked heat exchanger, dirty burners or poor exhaust flow.
- Heat Exchanger – Examine heat exchanger for cracks or signs of stress or fatigue. Unit must be shut down if you suspect that there may be a problem.
- Heat Strips – Check sequencers, fan control, safety controls, limit switches and element connections. Check amperages throughout.
- Safety Controls – Check door safety switch and sequence of safety operations. Also check on all other auxiliary safety devices.
- Gas Lines – Inspect all gas lines for possible leaks. Use soap and bubbles. Check commonly known areas where leaks often occur.
- Drafting – Ensure proper flame. Look for signs of rust or blockage. If signs exist, look to see if the flue needs to be cleaned or replaced.
- Pilot/Ignition System – Check for flame quality and roll out. Look for hard ignition or any signs of delayed ignition. Check warm up time.
- Crank Case Heater – Use amp probe to ensure the crank case heater is functioning. If it is not, oil may foam and reduce compressor viscosity.
- Defrost Controls – Send unit into defrost to check its function. Inform occupants of what they can expect during defrost cycle.
