Cars are complex machines with a lot of interworking parts and components.
- Keeping them running requires understanding and care for every piece involved.
That’s why a car inspection involves a step by step process. Whenever I take our car to the dealership for a simple oil change, they also do a full car inspection. They check our tires, brakes, transmission, a/c and heater, engine, air filter, and general fluid levels just to name a few. Usually they will create a print-out that includes all of the areas of the car and what kind of shape everything is in. Usually they use colors from red to orange to designate the severity of the destruction and to differentiate between parts that are working and others that need to be repaired or replaced. Thankfully, our quality heating and cooling contractor also does step by step inspections whenever 1 of their servicemans is at our apartment servicing the heating and cooling plan inside. After doing a thorough inspection of the air handler inside the house, they then move outdoors to look at the condenser and compressor. Often this involves adding more coolant to the plan as this naturally depletes during long stretches of time. On top of these areas in the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C system, it’s also essential that your Heating, Ventilation, and A/C serviceman inspects your condensate line. The Heating, Ventilation, and A/C condensate line is 1 of the most vital parts of the plan because it takes waste water from the a/c and puts it outside. If the condensate line clogs from microbial buildup and slime, it could cause a water leak inside the apartment around the base of the air handler.
