The most important task of an A/C maintenance is making sure the outdoor condensing unit’s coil gets washed thoroughly, the right way.
If you pay for an A/C maintenance and the technician does not fully remove all hail guards and the lid of the condensing unit to clean the coil, then you are wasting your money. Don’t be fooled by a low priced advertised “tune up”, or a technician that can complete an A/C maintenance in 30 minutes without disassembling the unit to be cleaned properly to manufacturer’s specifications. Many sales model companies offer a very cheap “Check up or Tune up” just to get their foot in the door. Many of these low priced tune ups consist mostly of a technician using a check list to then suggest actual maintenance tasks to be done at a higher price. Their end goal is to find out the age of your equipment, so they can recommend you replace it, and get a sales person in behind them at all costs. There is nothing more frustrating than feeling like you have to deal with the sales bit every time you need a good maintenance completed.
Depending on the manufacturer, some outdoor units have spine fin coils which then require additional steps to the cleaning process. Improperly washing any coil, no matter the type, can reduce efficiency which in turn will increase your utility bill, and can also cause premature aging and damage to your unit. Maintenance that is done properly to your unit will help it performing at the efficiency rating it was designed to achieve.
