Our 21-Point Air Conditioning Tune-Up Includes:
1. Test Thermostat Function
From correcting time errors to ensuring proper programming for every day of the week, we will adjust your thermostat as needed.
2. Test Plenum Function
The air distribution box sitting on the interior portion of your central air conditioner is the plenum; its pan gasket may need periodic replacement.
3. Test Air Duct Function
Air duct obstructions and excessive dust during a professional tune-up.
4. Test Ductwork for Holes
If you find that there are holes in the ductwork it could be costly in more than one way, such as reducing the lifespan of your unit by putting too much stress on the system and in energy costs for all the on time.
5. Check that the Condensation Pan
If you have water clogging your condensation pan you have the potential to cause a leak and, in turn, have serious water damage to contend with.
6. Test Condensation Drain Function
The interior portion of your cooling system takes moisture (condensate) out of the air; the drain must flow freely to prevent interior leaks or mold.
7. Test Blower Motor Function
Your air conditioner’s blower motor will turn on and off thousands of times throughout the year and it requires lubrication and cleaning to continue doing so..
8. Test Run Capacitor Function
Like a supercharged battery, a capacitor keeps your blower motor turning on and off all year, keeping your Glendale home cool and comfortable during the height of the summer.
9. Test Blower Wheel Function
Slipping or seizing of the blower’s wheel can spell trouble for your unit – costing money to repair.
10. Test Air Flow for Efficiency
A quick air-flow test while the air conditioner is running can determine if you system is adequately cooling your house.
11. Test General Safety Conditions
Every safety interlock, every electrical connection, and every place water and electricity meet is checked and rechecked for safe operation.
12. Check Wiring & Connections
A loose wire can put a halt to your home’s cold air; so we make sure all connections are tight and there is no faulty wiring.
13. Test Overall Function
From start-up to shut-down we check all components to make sure they switch on and off as expected.
14. Test Compressor Contactor Function
Your cooling system’s compressor contactor controls the outdoor unit and we make sure that it’s fully functional.
15. Test Relay Switch Function
We test all relays and electrical switches for positive action and sure contact.
16. Test Electrical Charge Function
A quick check of the electrical charge of the run capacitors and blower motor.
17. Test Starting Components
We make sure all major starting components of your A/C system are running correctly and in the right sequence.
18. Test Refrigerant Function
We test line pressure to ensure adequate, environmentally safe refrigerant is in your system.
19. Check Condenser Motor Function
We test the speed and voltage of the condenser motor to ensure it’s operating safely.
20. Check Tube & Panel Insulation
There are tubes and panels that should be insulated to help keep your cooling unit operating smoothly.
21. Check Operating Efficiency
We want to ensure that you aren’t wasting money of cooling expenses
To make sure you’re not throwing away money while running your air conditioner system, we inspect overall operating efficiency.

How Regular Maintenance Prevents Costly A/C Repairs
From hosting the 2015 Super Bowl to the annual splendor of Glendale Glitters, Glendale’s residents are justifiably proud of their city’s accomplishments. The summer weather, though, is not a subject most folks brag about. Temperatures can reach 120 degrees, and our fair city gets a scant nine inches of rain a year (according to Sperling’s Best Places). That high heat and low humidity are hard on central air conditioning equipment, which means an annual cooling tune-up is vital to preserving your investment in keeping cool.
Whether you have a central air system or a year-round heat pump, your HVAC equipment takes in a lot of dust and soaks up a lot of sunshine. Sperling’s Best Places tags the city with 294 sunny days a year against a U.S. average of only 205. What can high heat, low humidity, and lots of sunlight do to your central air conditioner?
Glendale’s desert environment locks in ground heat, and the direct solar exposure lets ultraviolet radiation ruin equipment. Flexible parts like rubber fan belts, gaskets and valve covers can degrade under UV light, leading to early equipment failure. High heat can bake parts, and blowing dust can clog lubrication ports in motors.
A regular tune-up by the Glendale area’s best air conditioning contractors, ACE Home Services, can correct for all the environmental issues your central air conditioner’s exterior unit is exposed to, while our expert technicians can protect the interior unit from harm, too.
ACE’s Air Conditioning Maintenance in Glendale
Though it is an old joke, it is true that most HVAC technicians never enjoy the cool air they work so hard to provide. They often arrive at a business or home with an HVAC system suffering from failing equipment. They work in the heat, restore the cooling power, and then leave.
Our technicians, though, will not leave as soon as the last screw is tightened on an electrical connection. They stay, not to enjoy the crisp, cool comfort of chilled air blowing from your registers and vents, but to ensure the system is working correctly. Whether installing a new unit, repairing an old one, or conducting a tune-up, we test airflow, operational efficiency, and set points. Tests include starting components to prevent motors from seizing or belts from fraying.
