What Does Air Conditioning Maintenance in Calgary Mean For You?

When referring to air conditioning maintenance, Calgary HVAC technicians tend to highlight this service in the late spring. It is a crucial service that involves inspecting, cleaning, and tuning up your cooling system to ensure it's running efficiently and effectively. A plumber with expertise in HVAC maintenance systems is required to perform this type of task. Our technicians do; plus, we have knowledge of various components of an air conditioning system, including the refrigerant, compressor, evaporator coil, condenser coil, and blower motor. We also have the skills needed to diagnose potential issues and conduct an ac repair or replacement parts, all usually on the same service call.

When it comes to the actual steps involved in air conditioning maintenance, Calgary HVAC technicians will start by cleaning the evaporator and condenser coils, replacing or cleaning the air filter, checking the refrigerant levels, and testing the system's thermostat. We may also lubricate moving parts, tighten electrical connections, and inspect the ductwork. Our exact steps may vary depending on your air conditioning system's specific make and model.

When booking your air conditioning maintenance, Calgary home or business owners can expect a professional and courteous plumber to arrive on time and provide you with a thorough estimate before beginning any work. The technician's timeline will depend on your system's specific needs and can range from a few hours to a full day. It's important to note that although no special licenses or certifications are required for HVAC technicians in Alberta, we are fully licensed plumbers with experience, insurance, and a solid reputation in the industry. We want to deliver to our customers the best service, and we do so by keeping up to date on community standards and going above what is required. This ensures you are getting top-notch service every time, offering you the best preventative maintenance.

Our team has seen a variety of systems in Calgary. AC maintenance systems that we can work on are:

  • Window Units: As the name implies, they are directly attached to the window frame and stay there secured within a seal that stops any air from escaping.
  • Split Systems: This sort of system is common in garages or other isolated areas and spaces. They use indoor and outdoor units with internal ventilation and an exterior condenser unit.
  • Ductless Split System: These are similar to a split system but don't use ducts. Instead, the indoor unit connects directly to the component outside for a more efficient process.
  • Package or Traditional Air Conditioning Unit: These are central air conditioner systems that sit outside, connecting to existing vents of the business to completely cool off the entire space.

The simplest units are the smallest options as they are normally portable, but there are a variety of systems out there. Maintaining each one by one of our licensed professionals means enjoying the cool breeze throughout the season.

But there are small tasks for air conditioning maintenance Calgary homeowners could do on their own:

  • Turn the Unit Off: If possible, unplug the unit from a power source as well. This should always be a first step. If you can't turn it off or find the power source, do not attempt any maintenance steps, as it is extremely unsafe to do so.
  • Remove Debris: Clear any vegetation, leaves, or dust away from the entire thing using a soft brush. If you have an outdoor unit, keeping all vegetation trimmed back at least 1 foot away from the ac unit is helpful to ensure no debris or foreign objects enter the unit. During this process, you can remove a fan cage and use a shop vac to clear away anything that has gathered inside.
  • Clean your aluminum fins: Remove outer covers to get rid of all exterior dirt and grime. When finished, use a garden hose to spray a gentle stream of water through the fence from inside to clear anything built up between each fin. Be careful and avoid using high-pressure water, as the coil fins are delicate and easily damaged.
  • Change your filter: Ideally, you should do this twice a year, at the start of the warm season and at the end. If there has been a particularly high level of pollution or smoke, such as during forest fire season in Calgary, you may want to change your filter more often. Near the main unit, where the large fresh ducts connect, you will find an enclosure that holds the filter. When you install the replacement, ensure that the arrows on your new filter match those on your unit.
  • Install a Programmable Thermostat: You can save money and reduce your system's wear by programming your thermostat settings so air conditioners are only running when your business is open.

Any business owner can reach out to us at Air West Mechanics if they are unsure of these steps or to set up yearly air conditioning maintenance. Calgary property owners are in safe hands. When our professional technicians come out, we will take care of it all; plus more to ensure your unit is operating at its prime function. Some routine tasks we offer during annual check-ups:

  • Checking drain tubes for flow and looking for water pooling
  • Noting the condition of outdoor and indoor coils
  • Checking all essential components like heat exchangers
  • Testing for refrigerant leaks or excess moisture and repairing them
  • Verifying the electrical panel is functioning
  • Visual inspection of other parts that might need servicing, such as the condensate pump, evaporator drain, heat pump, or any other parts your unit has.

We will perform these inspections, repairs, and other necessary steps to prepare it before the warm season. Then we will come again and prep it before the winter months hit, ensuring it is winterized until next season.

FAQ About Calgary AC Maintenance

How Often Do I Need Air Conditioning Maintenance?

Calgary HVAC experts recommend having your air conditioning system maintained at least once a year, preferably before the start of the warm season. This will help ensure that your system is operating efficiently and reduce the risk of breakdowns. Plus, if you have it regularly serviced, there is less need for us to come out for repair calls as we would do tuning and maintenance while there, saving you time and money down the road.

Can I Perform Air Conditioning Maintenance Myself?

While there are some basic maintenance tasks that you can do yourself, such as changing the air filter, we strongly recommend leaving more complex tasks to Air West Mechanics. Attempting to perform maintenance without the proper knowledge and tools can be dangerous and may cause further damage to your system or injury. In order to avoid costly repairs and emergency service in Calgary, call us first.

Yes! If your unit dies, makes weird noises, or emits a foul smell, we are available 24/7 for emergency AC repairs in Calgary. That includes evenings, weekends, holidays, or whenever. We will send a technician out to service the air conditioner soon after you call us.

What Is The Average Lifespan Of An Air Conditioner?

Most AC units will last 15-20 years if serviced with regular air conditioning maintenance. Calgary residents know that isn't always going to be the case. The lifespan will be dependent on the type, location, and durability. Some other factors that affect a lifespan:

  • How often is the unit used, and how long it runs continually
  • The size of the air conditioner, the BTU output, and the energy efficiency rating compared to the size of your business
  • Calgary climate, nearby fires, or any large dips in temperature fluctuations
  • Frequency of air conditioning maintenance

How do I Know if I Need Calgary AC Maintenance?

There are several signs to watch for indicating you may need air conditioning maintenance in Calgary. First and foremost, if your air conditioner is not functioning as effectively as it used to or is taking longer to cool your Calgary home, it may be time for maintenance. Additionally, if you're experiencing poor indoor air quality or unusual noises from your air conditioning system, it could be a sign that it needs servicing. Also, if you notice that your energy costs have increased significantly, this may be a sign your air conditioning system needs maintenance. 

Here is a quick checklist to assess your AC system:

  • Your unit won't turn on
  • Airflow is weak
  • AC is not blowing cold air, or airflow is warm
  • There is ice buildup on the outdoor coils
  • Refrigerant leaks
  • Loud, unusual noises
  • Unpleasant odor or burning smell
  • Any liquid leaking that isn't normal

What Are the Benefits of Air Conditioning Maintenance in Calgary?

Regular air conditioning maintenance in Calgary businesses will help maintain the office temperature so that equipment works to its max efficiency. Furthermore, you will be creating comfortable air quality for your customers and staff.

It will also reduce the operating costs of the company overall. By following through with regular air conditioning maintenance, you are extending the life of the HVAC building equipment, so they need fewer repairs, and it saves more energy.

"Great experience with AWM! They did a complete overhaul of my utility room, installing a new furnace and tankless water system. AWM went above and beyond, installing several new fittings and quality materials right down to the fasteners. There were a lot of extras they took care to address. They were extremely timely and informative to all my questions. I would highly recommend AWM"
