What Happens During a Professional AC Maintenance Visit?

To keep your air conditioner running cool all summer long, it’s important to have your unit serviced regularly. It’s recommended you have your AC unit tuned up and serviced at least once a year. When scheduling a professional service appointment, you can expect the AC contractor to perform the following services:

  • Check the air conditioner’s refrigerant levels to make sure it has the correct amount, and inspect the unit for leaks.
  • Inspect your air ducts for excessive debris and potential leaks.
  • Ensure the proper amount of air is flowing through your evaporator coil, and examine the coil to determine if there are any other issues.
  • Make sure the unit has the correct electric control sequence and ensure that cooling and heating sequences are not operating at the same time.
  • Check the electric terminals and apply a non-conductive coating if needed.
  • Add oil to the motors, examine belts, and inspect all other working components.
  • Inspect the thermostat to ensure it is controlling your indoor climate properly.

Why are AC Tune-Ups Important?

It is recommended you have your air conditioner serviced at least once a year for routine maintenance and a tune-up. Having a professional inspect the AC unit regularly is important because of the following:

  • Keep the air conditioner running efficiently and economically.
  • Ensure the AC is in good working order, which will help keep utility costs down and provide your property with maximized climate control.
  • Ensure proper indoor air quality.
  • Make sure that your property and family members are safe.
  • Catch minor issues before they turn into major ones.

The Top Signs Your Air Conditioner Needs Maintenance

Before you walk into a hot house in the middle of summer, it’s important to get your air conditioner tuned up before it stops working completely. If you notice the following issues with your AC unit, you should book an appointment with an AC contractor:

  • Not reaching the desired temperature: If your home isn’t reaching the desired temperature, or if cold air is not coming from the unit, you should schedule an appointment with a professional.
  • Not cooling evenly: You should have a professional inspect your air conditioner if your AC unit isn’t cooling your home evenly, or if you notice hot and cold spots throughout your home.
  • Increase in utility bills: If you notice a steady increase in your utility bills you should have your AC unit inspected by a professional.
  • Age: Your air conditioner will become less efficient and can require more frequent maintenances as it ages. Technicians can help you determine if replacing your unit with a newer model may be a better solution.

John G.

“Five stars--could not be happier!  Josh and Kyle were very professional, provided several options to improve performance of HVAC, no pressure or time constraints, worked efficiently, were able to explain in clear terms what they found, including when items were performing in fine fashion and nothing needed to be done.  Thanks for a happy camper”


“Service was outstanding from the time of arrival which you could track arrival time live on a website link they send you so you know when they will arrive. Technical knowledge was very high, quick and efficient Kyle and his partner both handled the install of a Sensi Predict as if it was a walk in the park. I highly recommend Kyle from Nice Heating & Air for all HVAC issues and for new installs, him and his team are an amazing company and will think of them first if any issues arise in the future for sure....”

Andrew Baker.

“Professional and polite. Excellent communication throughout the maintenance visit. Definitely recommend.”


“Rolando Medrano was very professional and followed the CDC protocol of 6 feet social distance and had a mask and put disposable shoe covers before entering the house. He made sure to address all of our issues and provided answers for all our questions. He came on time and called before he came to update on timing and his status! He was a great help!”

Mike Richardson.

“Highly recommend Nice Home Services for your HVAC needs. Have been member of their annual maintenance plan for three years now and been extremely pleased with their approach to business. They are professional, knowledgeable, and relatable. The service specialists take their time to fully diagnose the issue and explain the situation in a way that is easy to understand. Never had an instance where they try to push product and instead look for ways to recommend how to save you money. Need anything done on your home's HVAC, call the folks at Nice Home Services and know you're making the right choice.”

Zora G.

“Love , Love the NICE Heating & Air company for their kind & trustworthy technicians, their unbeatable price & overall knowledge they’ve amazed me every time with their fabulous job on my house, I’ll recommend them without hesitations, try this company you won’t regret for sure.”

Richard Nowinski.

“Dionte and his helper (Josh) did a superb job with the installation. The result is both functional and as cosmetically pleasing as the ideal water heater installation can be. They were VERY careful moving the old one out and the new one in so as to assure no damage was initiated neither to the heater nor to our dwelling. He explained his intended design prior to execution and executed it flawlessly. This was followed by a comprehensive explanation of the functional options available through the control panel and Ipad app. Cleanup at conclusion of the install was appropriate and comprehensive. This team represented both Nice Heating and Rheem VERY positively!”

Kimberly Mason.

“I had the pleasure of meeting another NICE Heating and Air Service Technician today, Mr. Jeremy Castellon. Jeremy, thank you again for addressing my questions and concerns regarding my gas fireplace. I appreciate your patience and knowledgeability about gas fireplaces. Jeremy was very professional and competent.”

Terence Lartey.

“I purchased my HVAC unit a year ago along with a Cozy Club maintenance plan. It's been running great and the customer service team is always quick to respond to questions. Today Rolando M. came by for the maintenance check and, as usual, he was neat, professional and maintained the COVID rules. He was also very nice, living up to the company name. I'm very happy with my experience with Nice.”

N. England.

“I can't speak highly enough of this company. I requested an appointment, and it was scheduled for the next day. The technician was polite, honest, and a pure delight to work with. He didn't try to overcharge or tell me to replace something I didn't need to. He made service recommendations that were in line with industry standard prices so I could make an informed decision as he went about his service visit. Would recommend and will be using them again in the future. ”

During a service appointment you'll updated and educated. If there is a concern, management will contact you promptly and follow up until issue resolved. Awesome and attentive team!!”
