Air Conditioning Tune-up and Maintenance

For Texans our air conditioner is one of the most important pieces of equipment in our homes, yet it is often ignored for the most part until a problem arises. With summer rapidly approaching, many home owners in Dallas and the surrounding areas will soon be turning on their AC system for the first time in months. The last thing you want is to find out you have a problem with your air conditioner right when you need cool air the most. One of the best things you can do in preparation of the sweltering summer is giving your air conditioner an inspection and tune-up.

An air conditioning tune up service can help prevent problems before they arise and ensures your system is operating efficiently, effectively and safely. Xtreme Air Services makes it so easy to keep your air conditioner operating at its peak performance. Below are just a few of the benefits of our AC maintenance program.

AC Tune-Up Checklist

It’s important to trust whoever is performing your air conditioner maintenance and repairs. That’s why at Xtreme Air Services our technicians are background checked, drug tested, and expertly trained. Our skilled AC technicians are licensed, registered, insured, and we stand behind their work with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. An Xtreme Air Service technician will perform a comprehensive inspection, cleaning, and testing of your AC or HVAC system to increase its efficiency and help prevent operating problems later on. Our comprehensive AC tune up service includes the following essential tasks:

  • Thermostat
    We tighten loose wires that can cause short cycling and check temperature accuracy.
  • System Efficiency / Split Temp
    We measure temperature differentials across the evaporator.
  • Freon Level
    We check the level of freon to ensure system requirements are met.
  • Air Filter (replace)
    We will replace the air filter if you have any available.
  • Air Ducts
    We check for air leakage and cleanliness inside the ductwork.
  • Electrical Box
    We tighten the box connection and check for metal fatigue and electrical overheating.
  • Condensate Drain
    We check drain for debris and blockage and look for key signs of drain overflow.
  • Air Distribution
    We check airflow and inspect areas where homeowners are experiencing a lack of comfort.
  • Plenums
    We check the elbow and duct transitions for leakage caused by system vibration or poor installation materials.
  • Evaporator Coil (cleaned if needed)
    We check for bacteria build-up and galvanic corrosion. Dirty coils reduce efficiency and decrease air quality.
  • Run Capacitors
    We test all caps for signs of leakage or bulging.
  • Start Kit / Relay / Transformers
    We check for loose wiring and measure electric amps for abnormal spikes.
  • Condenser Coil
    We examine coil for straightness and wash it out. We also test outside split temperature.
  • Condenser
    We test amp draw and compare to max data plate. Check for and tighten any loose wires at terminals.
  • Safety Control
    We check all panel switches and pressure controls to make sure they are functioning properly.
  • Fuses
    We check for bad or swollen fuses. We also ensure fuse box is safe from rain and child proofed.
  • Condenser Motor
    Condenser motors will dissipate heat from the condensing unit helping the unit to not overheat.
  • Blower Motor
    Same check as condenser motor along with blower wheel inspection and bacteria build-up.
  • Insulation
    We look to make sure all internal unit installation is secure. We also check suction line insulation.
  • Contactors
    We look out for worn or pitted point and check for discoloration or severely burnt wires.
