Preventative Maintenance

Preventative Maintenance Program

We recommend you join our preventative maintenance program to ensure that you are scheduling regular maintenance on your system and to take advantage of preventative maintenance agreement customer discounts. Preventative maintenance is simply one measure you can take to make sure your system is running properly. Does your cooling system have the proper refrigerant charge? Is your system communicating properly to the thermostat controls? Is your condenser fan operating properly? Is the heat exchange working? Are the wires all connected properly? These questions can't be answered without a professional technician inspecting your system to ensure problems are not arising. A little prevention can go a long way to saving you money later.

Acosta Heating and Air Conditioning goes through a complete checklist when inspecting and cleaning your HVAC system(s)

Here are some of the steps we take to verify and maintain the health of your AC (not necessarily in that order):

 - Inspect the outdoor disconnect switch, safety switches, and check for any damage caused by rodents, etc…

 - Check contactors, inspect circuit boards and relay contacts, verify electrical wire connections in good condition

 - Compressor voltage amperage checkup at startup, inspect motor voltage amperage and monitor through testing

 - Check refrigerant levels

 - Remove any debris, dirt, leaves, etc…from condenser, inspect and clean with solvent solution

 - Inspect fan, assess motor and blades, lubricate as required.

- Check, clean, and blow out all primary & secondary drain lines, look for water in drain pans and check for visible signs of rodents.

- Inspect and clean the evaporator coil

- Check for signs of freezing up and for condensation dripping where it is supposed to.

- Check plenum, all ductwork, return air housing and grilles, we clean as required

- Check for carbon monoxide, a safety inspection of the ignition system, safety controls, blower housing, blower wheel and motor, and all the       unit’s components.

- Check for a gas leakage in furnace and clean inside gas furnace compartment.

- Check the air filter(s), clean or replace as required (please call the office (805) 498-3939 for pricing and for any help you need)

- Test your system(s) thermostat; properly check the operation cycle and temperature, UV lights and humidifiers (when applicable) also if you       have an EAC (Electric Air Cleaner) please call the office (805) 498-3939 for more information.

* It typically takes 1 to 1.5 hours to do all the above for one system, and if you have 2 systems it is at least 2 hours, but we would need to see          configuration to be certain.

On our first visit we would also perform an overall visual inspection of your complete HVAC set up, including but not limited to: Making sure nothing looks like it has been damaged in any way, age of thermostat(s), furnace(s) properly strapped and lifted high enough to let condensation drain properly with pans inclined adequately, proper sizing of breakers for all units, signs of timely maintenance having been performed at normal intervals, proper up to code gas connections, age of unit(s), fan(s), fan coil(s), condenser(s), furnace(s), etc…

Upon completion of the inspection/cleaning of your Heating Air Conditioning system you will be ready to handle what the weather throws at you for the season, otherwise we will suggest repair steps that need to be taken to keep your system in perfect working order.

We offer affordable by-annual tune-ups and professional safety inspections. Our HVAC experts deliver thorough AC tune-ups to keep your system(s) running efficiently, just call the office (805) 498-3939 to find out how to enroll in Energy Savings Agreement.

Preventative Maintenance for Refrigeration Wine Cellars

Since temperature in your wine cellar needs to remain constant, it is sound advice to perform maintenance and cleaning of your system at regular intervals to diagnose problems before they become failures. We strongly recommend a minimum of one visit per year.

Maintenance visit consists of proofing your system is running flawlessly, ensuring heat exchange is working efficiently, detailed inspection of system(s) and all critical components, checking system(s) and sub-system (such as steam humidifiers when applicable) operation temperature and humidity, listening for noise levels, verifying control limits, making sure system is communicating properly with thermostat, measuring refrigerant charge screening for leaks, checking all electrical connections are tight and clean, changing or cleaning filter(s), lubricate motor(s), checking condenser fan, fan pulleys, adjusting belt as required, looking for potential mold, cleaning of coils, pump, drain line, evaporator pan and condenser…
