Air Conditioner Preventative Maintenance

Prevention is always better than cure, especially when it comes to air conditioning units. Most people don’t realize that their home or business air conditioners need routine maintenance checks, cleanings, and minor repairs to continue functioning at maximum capacity. When you ignore AC preventative maintenance, you risk your unit failing at the most inopportune times—like the middle of August in Pinellas County. Preventative maintenance not only helps you avoid disaster, but it also lengthens a unit’s shelf life, saving you money on a replacement.


Maintenance Services You Can Count On


Palm Harbor Heating & Air Conditioning has the equipment, experience, and education to make our team a model of excellence in the Bay area. Our professional team of HVAC technicians can perform a complete maintenance check on your unit, ductwork, and vents to ensure they’re operating efficiently. We never “look” for problems or push sales—we believe in honest air conditioning services with the customer’s best interest in mind. Benefits of an AC tune-up include:


  • Energy cost savings and efficiency
  • Better all-around system performance
  • Preventing costly and inconvenient breakdowns
  • Extended system life
  • Maintaining safe operation


We recommend that you schedule biannual appointments for air conditioning preventative maintenance to ensure constant satisfaction with your unit. HVAC systems are a major element in your home. To protect your investment, continue regular maintenance checks throughout your unit’s lifespan.


Do I Need Preventative Maintenance?


Many people are under the impression that they only need AC services when something breaks. However, by this time, it’s too late to avoid expensive repairs or even total system replacement. Preventative maintenance can save hundreds of dollars in monthly energy costs and help reduce the need for major fixes. You’ll be surprised how much more efficiently a unit operates when our team cleans and lubricates terminal connections, bearings, blower housing mounts, and coils. We’ll also:


  • Tighten terminal connections
  • Inspect filters
  • Inspect wiring and connections
  • Inspect fan motor and blades
  • Inspect controls and capacitors
  • Ensure evaporator and condenser coils are clean
  • Calibrate thermostats


After our team leaves, you’ll feel the difference in your home or business’s air conditioning. When properly maintained and cleaned, your unit will operate at top efficiency instead of pumping energy into a sluggish system. Your unit won’t have to work as hard, protecting its delicate components and saving you money—all while providing better cool air output.
