Routine Air Conditioner Maintenance, Tune-Ups & Safety Checks

Because nearly 95% of all the air conditioning repairs we come across are caused by things that could have been avoided with maintenance, we at Five Star Home Services strongly suggest homeowners keep up on their AC equipment. Air conditioning maintenance is a very affordable and cost-effective way to avoid the need for emergency AC repairs and premature replacement. Using this fast and affordable service enables an AC technician to have a close and detailed look at your system and inspect it for all sorts of things that could cause problems down the road, like during the hot and humid months of summer when you need it the most. This inspection and servicing include an A/C tune-up and a detailed analysis of your A/C refrigerant levels and lines, A/C belt, A/C motors, AC controls, electrical wiring, AC terminals, and more. When conducting seasonal maintenance, our experts also check fan motors, drainage lines, air filters, connectors, and much more.

4 Benefits of Air Conditioner Maintenance

Have you given your A/C the tender love and care it needs this year? With the cooling season approaching, you should consider scheduling an air conditioner tune-up appointment before hot weather rolls into Ohio. Below we list four benefits of an air conditioner tune-up that you could miss out on.


Last but not least, investing in preventative maintenance helps lengthen the life span of your air conditioner. Like cars, air conditioners need regular servicing to keep running well. Failure to provide professional care can cause the equipment to give out early or fail prematurely. Neglecting maintenance allows the wear and tear to go unchecked. Air conditioners are designed to last 15 years on average if given the right care.


During a maintenance appointment, our HVAC technicians help you ensure your system is cooling as effectively as possible. If you have hot and cold areas in your home, a maintenance checkup might find the cause of this problem. When your air conditioner cools your home evenly, it provides far more comfortable temperatures throughout the house.


As we noted, increased efficiency means lower home cooling costs. When you invest in A/C maintenance, you will likely notice your energy bills dropping. The air conditioner isn’t working as hard to keep your home cool. During a tune-up, our team will optimize all the A/C functions. This cools the home and uses less energy.


A well-maintained air conditioner is less likely to break down or have issues. During a maintenance appointment, our HVAC technicians can inspect all the components and moving parts and look for potential problems. By repairing these issues proactively, we reduce the risks of expensive repairs and breakdowns. No one has the time or likes dealing with A/C breakdowns. Maintenance helps reduce the risks.

Is Your Cooling System Ready for Another Ohio Summer?

Residential air conditioning units are intricate systems that are made to last. Air conditioners can often go unnoticed when they’re working correctly and keeping our homes cool during Ohio’s hot summer months. Nevertheless, when there’s a problem, we certainly know it, and because we feel it, we are quick to act. No one likes sitting around in the muggy heat in their home without air conditioning. This is the 21st century, after all! Our air conditioning systems aren’t so much a luxury during Ohio’s hot and humid summer months. Our air conditioners are a necessity.

Additionally, our HVAC technicians can replace any damaged or broken parts during their analysis. In short, seasonal maintenance enables us to find minor issues before they escalate into major problems that usually cause AC breakdowns. Finally, because care allows our team of technicians to assess your system, make recommendations, and perform essential cleanings and tasks, this extends the lifespan of your air conditioner and increases its efficiency.

What Maintenance Does a Central Air Conditioner Need?

When your air conditioner needs more than regular maintenance, such as when it does not reduce the indoor temperature to a comfortable level, hire a professional service technician from Five Star Home Services. A well-trained technician will find and fix problems in your air conditioning system. The technician should:

  • Check for the correct amount of refrigerant
  • Test for refrigerant leaks using a leak detector
  • Capture any refrigerant that must be evacuated from the system, instead of illegally releasing it into the atmosphere
  • Check for and seal duct leakage in central systems
  • Measure airflow through the evaporator coil
  • Verify the correct electric control sequence and make sure that the heating system and cooling system cannot operate simultaneously
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and tighten connections, and apply a non-conductive coating if necessary
  • Oil motors and check belts for tightness and wear
  • Check the accuracy of the thermostat.
