Camco Maintenance Spring and Summer

Spring and Summer:

Change the filters with pleated filters. We recommend pleated because they are a better choice to keep the indoor coil clean. This results in a more efficient unit and less cleaning of the indoor coil which could cause unwanted and expensive breakdowns.

Test and inspect of the economizer. We like to use the outdoor air if possible to do the cooling for us. Therefore, we encourage the use and maintenance of the economizer. If parts are needed to fix the economizer then they will be recommended and quoted separately.

Test and inspect the Indoor Blower Motor. We will use either CO2 or nitrogen to blow the dirt out of the blower motor and help prevent premature failure due to heat buildup caused by dirt. This also lowers the possibility of a breakdown in the heat of summertime. We will vacuum the blower section if needed, and finally we inspect and clean if needed the blower wheel for excess dirt deposits if needed.

Visually check the refrigerant piping for oil stains and possible leaks. Note and/or clean leaks with an industrial coil cleaner for testing with an industry acceptable leak detecting device. If leaks are found, recommendations with estimates will be given.

Check the compressor (s) and outdoor fan motor for proper operations. Touch test/Infrared temperature test the compressors for the proper operating temperatures. If problems are suggested by this test then we will check the operating pressures. We discourage attaching gauges on our maintenances because this actually removes refrigerant for the system and leaves the system at less than peak operating performance.

Check the unit operations. We will visually check the control panel for excessive heat discoloration on wires and contacts. We will test the operating and safety controls for proper operation. We will run test the controls to assure the thermostat operation is controlling the equipment. We will take amp and volt readings for comparison to name plate rating to determine if the components are operating within their design.

Wash the Condenser coils, and evaporator coil as needed in the spring only. Includes soap cleaner especially designed for aluminum fin coils.
