This insulation can deteriorate from exposure and tampering by rodents and wildlife. Checking fan bearings We check that the fan bearings on the indoor and outdoor unit are in good order. If you’re having trouble with any noise inside or out, this can sometimes be where the problem lies. We check this to ensure you don’t have any major problems between services. Ensuring highest performance and energy efficiency How well is your unit actually performing? We check this too! With our performance level checks of the refrigerant system, including the compressor and the overall system. We ensure it is working as it best and most efficient. Flushing it out We check and flush the condensate drain pan to ensure it is cleared. A blocked drain will result in eventual compressor failure due to corrosion damage. We also, flush drain piping to prevent blockage. Cleaning of the indoor unit. Thoroughly cleaning We clean the units, inside and out!
