Air Conditioning Maintenance


When summer finally arrives, you depend on your central air system to deliver refreshing, cool comfort. You expect precise temperature control, dehumidification, and energy-efficient operation. You certainly aren’t planning on suffering the brutal heat while waiting for replacement parts and repair work. The only way to ensure reliable, uninterrupted comfort all summer long is to schedule seasonal maintenance from Atomatic Mechanical Services. Our NATE-certified technicians will put their extensive experience and in-depth training to work for you, keeping your equipment in peak condition.

Your air conditioner is like any appliance you rely on to withstand intense usage. It requires upkeep. Even during the winter, when your system sits idle, it collects dust and debris that compromises performance and efficiency. Just by replacing a clogged filter with a clean one, we can lower energy consumption by 5 to 15%. When dirt is allowed to accumulate within the system, airflow is blocked, and coils are insulated, ensuring a steady decline in capacity and efficiency. Filters, coils, and fins require regular maintenance to operate properly. Over years and months without professional cleaning, evaporator and condenser coils gather pollen, dander, and dust, preventing proper cooling and heat absorption. Clogged condensate drain channels prevent the unit from efficiently reducing humidity, resulting in problems with moisture that can damage the home.

By measuring airflow through the evaporator coil, oiling motors, checking belts for tightness, testing for refrigerant leaks, sealing duct leakage, inspecting electric terminals, tightening connections, and verifying the accuracy of the thermostat, the professionals from Atomatic Mechanical Services will make sure your cooling system provides dependable comfort. Not only that, a clean, well-adjusted system wards off malfunctions, lasts longer, consumes less energy, operates more quietly, and provides clean, filtered air.

Your air conditioner does more than deliver cool air. It provides dehumidification and filtration, trapping allergens that would otherwise be circulated throughout your home or office. If insects, plant matter, and rotting animals are hidden within the inner workings, your system may be spraying bacteria directly into your breathing air. The increased temperature and steady supply of moisture within the unit promotes the growth of natural organisms, such as mold, mildew, fungi, and algae. These contaminants may trigger symptoms of fatigue, coughing, congestion, eye irritation, asthma attacks, and respiratory infections. Studies have indicated that the majority of work absenteeism due to colds, flu, and allergy problems are directly linked to the circulation of airborne bacteria and fungi from the air conditioning system. This can be easily prevented through professional cleaning.
