Our extensively trained, EPA-certified technicians inspect, clean, adjust, and, if necessary, repair your AC equipment to ensure it runs trouble-free.

Air Conditioning Maintenance in Winston-Salem, North Carolina

Why You Need AC Maintenance

Replacing a clogged filter can reduce an AC’s energy consumption by as much as 15%. Professional maintenance can go even further. A neglected unit can use 30% more energy than one professionally serviced yearly. Our maintenance team can address issues such as poor cooling performance, higher energy bills, and frequent breakdowns. Recurring problems can shorten the lifespan of your air conditioner, but maintenance can address these to avoid premature replacement.

Our HVAC Maintenance Services Prevent Common Issues

A Winston-Salem AC tune-up by QRC includes a comprehensive range of tasks that ensure optimal performance. It includes:

  • A Thorough Inspection: Our technicians fully inspect your AC system, including the air handler, condenser unit, refrigerant lines, ductwork, registers, and more for signs of wear, corrosion, or damage.
  • Cleaning System Components: We have the tools and machinery to provide a thorough AC cleaning, which includes the evaporator and condenser coils, blower assembly, condensate drain, and air ducts.
  • Checking Refrigerant Levels: Using professional equipment, our team can measure refrigerant levels and, if necessary recharge the system or search for small holes in coils to patch. Low refrigerant can reduce performance and efficiency and lead to system failure.
  • Lubricating Moving Parts: Lubricating the fan motor, bearings, motor shaft, and other moving parts reduces friction. This avoids excess wear that can shorten the life of components and lead to costly repairs.
  • Making Necessary Adjustments: If necessary, preventative AC maintenance can include adjusting belts, straightening condenser fins, and tightening connections so your air conditioner runs more smoothly.
  • Testing System Performance: During a Winston-Salem AC tune-up, our technicians can measure the temperature difference between the supply and return, the pressure in refrigerant lines, and the voltage of electrical components.
  • Optimizing Settings: Our team can help find the optimal temperature, fan speed, and scheduling settings so your AC runs more efficiently and with less strain.

The Benefits: What You Gain from Proper Maintenance

Air conditioning maintenance should not be neglected because you stand to benefit in many ways. An AC tune-up takes about an hour, but for the rest of the year, it can:

  • Improve AC Efficiency: Cleaning coils, recharging refrigerant, and making adjustments can result in reduced energy consumption and lower energy bills.
  • Increase Comfort: Regular maintenance can prevent or resolve issues such as ineffective cooling, uneven temperatures, temperature fluctuations, or high humidity.
  • Improve Indoor Air Quality: A poorly maintained AC can contribute to dustier air and unpleasant odors. A refrigerant leak can release toxic fumes into the air.
  • Prolonged AC Lifespan: Maintenance prevents wear and tear by resolving issues that can wear out major components. Therefore, an annual tune-up can add years to your air conditioner’s life.
  • Peace of Mind: Knowing your AC is properly cared for and is less likely to break down provides a sense of security that lasts through the warmer months.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Often Do I Need Air Conditioning Maintenance?

While air filters should be replaced once a month during high usage, an AC cleaning and tune-up by a professional should be done once a year, preferably in the spring.

Are There Other Times I Should Consider HVAC Maintenance?

You could have dirty coils or other problems if your electric bill suddenly spikes, your home isn’t getting as cool, or the unit is running longer. Higher indoor humidity can also indicate a problem. Call for help if the coil appears frozen, rusted, or cracked.

What Odors Require Winston-Salem AC Repair?

A musty smell is a sign mold is growing in your air conditioner. If there’s a burning odor, the cause can be melting wire insulation or another electrical problem. A chloroform or chemical smell is a sign of a refrigerant leak.
