AC Unit Maintenance Procedures for St. Louis Area Homes
Ideally, you should have your central air conditioning system professionally inspected and maintained at the beginning and end of each cooling season. The maintenance steps will vary by model and manufacturer, but they typically include:
- Changing or cleaning the air filter
- Cleaning the supply plenum and checking for loose duct connections
- Lubricating blower motor bearings and pulleys
- Checking for refrigerant leaks and verifying proper freon charge
- Inspecting the condenser unit for debris and corrosion
- Cleaning the condenser and evaporator coil
- Cleaning the condensate drain and drip tray
- Inspecting and cleaning electrical connections
- Checking safety systems like breakers and pressure switches
- Verifying that the AC unit and thermostat operate properly at all settings
Between maintenance visits, you can help keep your central air conditioner running properly by changing the air filter as needed, cleaning the condensate drain occasionally and keeping the area around the condenser unit free of debris.
The Advantages of HVAC Maintenance for St. Louis Homeowners
Without preventative maintenance, your air conditioner will have to work harder to keep you comfortable as it struggles to remove heat through dirty coils and move air through clogged filters, increasing your energy costs. The advantages of regular maintenance include:
- Reduced cooling costs: With clean a evaporator and condenser coil, proper refrigerant levels, and all moving parts lubricated, your central air conditioner can cool more efficiently, reducing energy costs by up to 10 percent.
- Improved comfort: With the system running properly, it can cool and dehumidify your home more efficiently, improving your comfort.
- Lower repair costs: With regular inspections, problems can be caught early, reducing repair costs and preventing major problems that shorten the system’s lifespan.

Mary - St. Louis, MO
Roger finds solutions not only to HVAC problems and maintenance, but to other related issues, too. He is always pleasant and respectful.
More outstanding service!
Patricia - St. Louis, MO
For anyone considering the extended maintenance plan, I can tell you it's been worth every penny in my case. Senior engineer Roger Henson corrected two separate issues with my leaking furnace during two separate visits within a 24 hour period as part of my plan. I was not sold unnecessary parts and was extremely pleased with the results of his maintenance work.

Serviceman did a good job
Patricia - St. Louis, MO
Roger once again did a stellar job of fixing/providing maintenance for our furnace, which was leaching water. After a thorough cleaning, everything is in tip top shape.
Denise - St. Louis, MO
I'd highly recommend John...very thorough and professional!
Dick - St. Louis, MO
I had a leaky unit that was dripping water in the apartment below me. Obviously it needed to be fixed pronto and your serviceman was there six hours after I called on what for you must have been a very busy Monday. I guess my only quibble would be that somehow I did not get the usual call for my spring maintenance check. I am reasonably certain if I had gotten the maintenance check then I wouldn't have had the issue in the first place.

John is a complete professional: efficient, courteous, thorough. Always pleased with his efforts.
Drain and HVAC Services were Great

We had separate issues with our sewer drain and HVAC. Classic Aire Care responded quickly and took care of everything. The technicians were very helpful and their invoice system was easy to use and very helpful for record keeping, pictures, etc. I would definitely recommend their services.

I have used your company for years - this was/has been quite an awful experience. The service time scheduled for the maintenance contract was 12-4 - the tech showed up at 6:30 pm, we received no phone call to let us know he was running that far behind. When John showed up he like all the techs was extremely polite. He did the routine maintenance - said we needed a new part for the second unit in the house that controls the second and third floor. He repaired the part and was out of the house by 8 pm. When we went to bed at 10 we noticed the thermostat was set at 69 but still at 71 in the house. I went outside to find that the outside unit was not working at all - just the blower in the house. At this point it was too late to do anything so we dealt with it for the night. I called at 7 am the next day to let them know that even though we just had the maintenance done our unit was not working, which by the way it was working fine up until the maintenance. The call was put in and a tech was not at our house until 4:30. Upon inspection he said the motor was not functioning and needed a new one - not sure how this failed to be caught during the maintenance as it seems to be quite an important part of an inspection/maintenance plan. With them not showing up until the end of the day, they did not have a motor that would work for the unit and have to order one today. At this point the second floor was at 80 degrees and there was nothing we could do. We ended up having to spend the night at a hotel. At this point the only sense of urgency/sincerity was from the tech that came yesterday to fix what should have been caught during the maintenance - or since we have the maintenance plan that the call could have/should have at least been a priority since we had/have no ac. I am also in the service industry and dont feel there is ever a need to get upset or angry at a situation, I do however feel that a call, apology, or even some sort of compensation for our troubles could be thrown out there. I have no desire to stop using your company as over the years you have done nothing but treat us great. This is however shocking from what we have come to expect from your company. Hopefully this is taken care of today. Thanks for your time.
