Cooling System Maintenance
Today’s cooling systems are extremely reliable and efficient, but they still require regular maintenance to keep them operating at peak performance. Our team at BVSM Heating & Air Conditioning can work with you to make sure your system is properly maintained according to the recommendations of the manufacturer, protecting the system’s warranty and your investment. A typical maintenance visit will begin with a thorough inspection of your cooling system, followed by standard maintenance tasks like:
- Cleaning the evaporator and condenser coils
- Changing the air filter
- Cleaning the air handler
- Lubricating moving parts like motor bearings and pulleys
- Adjusting or replacing the blower fan belt
- Inspecting the electrical system for loose, dirty or corroded contacts
- Checking the refrigerant lines for leaks
- Verifying proper refrigerant levels
By keeping up with the routine maintenance of your cooling system, you can extend its life span, reduce your energy costs and prevent problems in the future.
Cooling System Repair
Even the best cooling systems will eventually need some basic repairs to keep them operating efficiently and properly. Sometimes the repairs will be minor, like replacing the blower fan belt or changing a failed start capacitor, while other repairs may be more extensive, like replacing a seized compressor. With careful monitoring of your cooling system, you can spot problems early by looking for the following signs:
- Higher energy usage
- Poor cooling performance
- Airflow problems
- Strange noises
- Breakers that trip often
- Frozen evaporator coils
With years of diagnosis and repair experience, our professional technicians at BVSM Heating & Air Conditioning can find the root of the problem quickly and offer you the best repair solutions for your needs and your budget.

Frequently Asked Questions About Air Conditioning
Has R-22 been discontinued as a refrigerant?
Yes. As of January 2010, the refrigerant R-22 (what consumers call Freon®) is no longer allowed to be used in the manufacturing of new equipment. R-22 was used as the standard refrigerant for many years but has been found to be harmful to our planet due to its ozone-depleting properties. All new air conditioners and heat pumps use R-410A, which is more environmentally sound.
WHEN WILL R-22 RUN OUT?
As of January 2020, R-22 is no longer in production and the supply will become more and more limited.
MAKE THE SWITCH TO R-410A
If you are considering replacing your existing air conditioner, most higher efficiency products have already made the switch to R-410A, so you won’t have to worry about which refrigerant you are using. If your unit is older, you may want to look into what it is using and considering switching to R-410A.
