AC Service and Maintenance in Hamilton, ON
Most people don’t give their HVAC system a second thought. As long as it works, they forget it’s there. This outlook is understandable because everyone leads busy lives.
The AC unit carries on working, despite this neglect. However, with each passing month, it becomes a little less efficient, draws more power, and begins to wear out. Finally, something goes wrong, and you need an urgent air conditioner repair.
The Shipton’s Heating & Cooling Ltd team believes you deserve better. Our team happily offers comprehensive AC service and tune-ups. Hamilton residents take advantage of our affordable, proactive maintenance service to:
- Extend the air conditioner’s lifespan

Your Air Conditioning Service
A little TLC keeps the system in top working condition. How often you perform preventative maintenance depends on how hard your AC works. If you live in a dusty area or the system runs continually, you must clean it more often.
Our AC service in Hamilton consists of several steps that our technicians work through carefully. If your unit has an issue, our painstakingly thorough process will bring it to light. Our technicians evaluate the entire system, flush it out, and assess its condition.
The technicians will:
- Tighten electrical connections: The vibrations in the unit can cause wires to work loose. We tighten them up to ensure that all the links are secure.
- Lubricate parts: Poor lubrication is a reason that many units break down. Without proper oiling, the friction between the parts also increases wear and tear.
- Drain the condensate line: Clogs in this line lead to inefficiency in the entire HVAC system. The standing water can also be a prime spot for mold to develop.
- Straighten the coil fins: The fins that make up the coils are relatively easy to damage. If debris hits them at the wrong angle, they can easily bend the coils. Straightening them is essential in managing the airflow properly.
- Examine the controls: Checking the controls is the last part of the system check.
Optimizing Air Quality
You may also request that we change the air filter for you. However, this task is something that you need to learn how to do as you should replace it every three to six months. Changing out the filter is essential to your system’s efficiency and maintaining indoor air quality.
If anyone in the family has allergies or asthma, it’s especially vital to stay on top of filter changes.
When checking the filter, it’s also wise to clean up the outside of the AC. Remove any leaves or other debris to ensure they don’t work their way into the machinery. Also, ensure that the shrubs nearby are tidy and don’t scratch the casing.
