HVAC Maintenance General Guide

Here at TemperaturePro Phoenix, we are committed to providing professional, trustworthy, and affordable air conditioning maintenance services to the greater Phoenix area. We offer our services around the clock for your convenience and just in case there is an emergency. Having your HVAC unit have routine maintenance is essential, especially in a city that is in a desert. We provide maintenance on all models of HVAC units. Whether they are forced-air or swamp coolers, we maintain your comfortable and cool home or business.

As we mentioned earlier, we want to provide quality air for our community. Still, many do not realize that a massive part of ensuring you are breathing quality air and staying comfortable is through scheduling preventative maintenance visits from certified HVAC technicians. Just like anything working mechanism, your air conditioner requires routine maintenance checkups to continue operating at an optimal level.

Regularly scheduled maintenance visits provide significant benefits.

These benefits include:

  • Better indoor air quality
  • Increased HVAC system lifespan
  • Enhanced HVAC system performance
  • Optimized energy efficiency
  • Potentially lower utility bills
  • Reduced need for repair visits
  • Saving money in the long run

How Often Should I Get A Maintenance Checkup?

It is a general rule of thumb that AC units should receive preventative maintenance at least one time a year to ensure the most optimal performance from your AC unit and get the benefits that we listed above. In the long run, this can save you the cost of repairs and potentially even replacing your HVAC unit.

When Should I Get AC Maintenance?

We all know how hot Phoenix summers can get. This being said, you will typically want to service your air conditioning system in the spring before the temperatures start to increase. We recommend late March or in April in order to beat the heat. Although, getting maintenance in late spring or the summer will only help you. Generally, you can get your HAV unit serviced anytime in the year, but having your AC unit optimized before summer will lead to the best performance when it’s needed most.

Cleaning the Air Filter

If your air filter gets too dirty, it causes your air conditioner to work much harder than what is optimal, which can drastically decrease your cooling system’s efficiency. Dirty air filters can cause your utility bills to rise as well. The worst-case scenario is that your air filter becomes clogged, which can cause the air conditioner to overheat, leading to a complete system failure. A system failure will lead to an expensive repair job or a completely new air conditioner installation.

Additionally, because the air filter is dirty, that means the air passing through into your home is contaminated as well. This means that the air you, your family, and your customers are breathing in at your home or business can be full of potentially harmful pollutants.

Cleaning the Evaporator Coils

When evaporator coils are left unmaintained, they gather dust and dirt. The grime that builds up makes it more difficult for the coils to transfer heat. This means that the air conditioner has to work harder, utilizing more energy and placing more stress on important parts of the system, similar to the air filters. Increased pressure on these parts causes them to wear out sooner, which means they will need to be replaced. Dirty coils also corrode, which can lead to refrigerant leaks. Refrigerant leaks can be pricey to fix and can lead to more catastrophic problems for your cooling system.


Having an optimized and well-functioning condenser is vital for homes and businesses in Phoneix. When it comes to air conditioning, the condenser is where all the cooling process happens. The practice of checking the condenser during maintenance visits allows our certified technicians to catch any problems early on, preventing potentially expensive repair costs. Issues with condensers can worsen and lead to more complex problems that cause a total breakdown.

During preventative maintenance visits, your technician will check your condenser for these elements :

  • Supply Voltage
  • Condenser Coil Condition
  • Condenser Capacitors
  • Condenser Contactor
  • Condenser Fan Motor
  • Condenser Fan Blades

Swamp Coolers

Swamp coolers receive frequent use in Phoenix for multiple reasons. Swamp coolers provide cool air throughout the hot months. Swamp coolers need routine maintenance for a few reasons:

  • Filter Cleanliness
  • Increased Swamp Cooler Life
  • Maximize Energy Efficiency

Like your standard cooling system, checking all swamp cooler components will lead to better performance and cleaner air. This is essential as it will save you time and money.
