The Benefits of Regular Cooling AC Maintenance Visits
When you schedule a service call, we leave no part of your air conditioning system untouched. Our tune-ups start with an overall cleaning and examination of the blower fan, cooling equipment, condensate drains and pans, and air vents or mounted units. Next, we move on to testing the safety controls and inspecting or tightening all electrical connections.
Your HVAC technician can also replace the air filter and show you how to quickly and easily access the filter by yourself to change every 30 to 90 days as recommended by your system manufacturer. If you or any member of your household is sensitive to pollution or allergens, our team can recommend more frequent filter changes or a more powerful filter than your current model to help trap particles.
Once cleaned, your AC system is ready for testing and adjustments. This starts with checking the system’s overall capacity to start up and cool the air temperature, followed by adjustments to the air flow from supply to return intake, monitoring the entire cooling cycle, measuring volts and amps relative to the manufacturer specifications for your AC model and checking the thermostat calibration for accurate temperature control.
It costs around $350-$600 to have a home AC unit repaired. The price can fluctuate depending on:
- The type of repair.
- The level of the repair.
- The HVAC technician’s hourly fee.
Some repairs will also be more expensive due to the cost of replacement parts or components. For example, if your AC unit has a refrigerant leak, the cost to replace the refrigerant can increase the total price of the repair. To get your AC unit repaired, call us today.

In New Jersey, it's advisable to begin thinking about tuning up your HVAC system for warmer weather in early spring, typically around March or April. Scheduling maintenance during this time ensures your HVAC system is ready to handle the increased demand for cooling as temperatures rise. It allows ample time for any necessary repairs or adjustments, ensuring optimal performance and energy efficiency throughout the summer months.
