Air Conditioning Inspection NJ- What’s Covered?

Keeping you comfortable all year round is central to our business. Our air conditioning technicians have you covered with a number of service plans. For your air conditioning inspection, you can expect the following:

1. Check and Clean the Evaporator and Condenser Coils

These air coils are prone to collecting dust, dirt and other troublesome particles. When this happens, your unit can become blocked, causing it to overwork and reducing its ability to effectively cool your home. Our professional technicians will clean your HVAC coils to avoid potential damage due to restricted airflow.

2. Verify the MERV Reading

Checking the MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) rating helps determine the efficacy of your unit’s air filter in stopping contaminants. If the reading is low on the scale (which typically ranges from 1 to 12), additional maintenance may be required.

3. Check Refrigerant Level

If this is too low or too high it will need to be adjusted in order to reduce the risk of wasted energy and efficiency, and potentially causing your unit to die a premature death.


4. Clean the Air Vents, Air Filters

You can easily do this one yourself. Cleaning your air filters can do wonders for improving the airflow capacity and general health and efficiency of your unit. Dirty air filters, which are the first line of defense for your HVAC system, will need to be replaced about once every year at a minimum.
