AC Maintenance for Ephrata Homeowners
Regular professional maintenance is critical if you want your air conditioner to run at peak efficiency, avoid expensive repairs, and keep it going for its full life span. At The Witmer Company, we recommend at least two service visits a year, in the spring and the fall, due to how often residents tend to use their AC units. Our team can service any type or brand of air conditioner or related equipment, including air conditioners, central units, packaged systems, heat pumps, mini-splits, etc.
For a regular AC maintenance visit, our technicians typically proceed by:
- Replacing the air filter and cleaning the air handler
- Adjusting the blower fan belt
- Lubricating blower motor bearings and pulleys
- Balancing return and supply airflow
- Inspecting electrical wires, contacts, and terminals
- Testing safety systems
- Cleaning the evaporator coil, condenser coil, and condensate drain
- Testing the start capacitor and relay
- Measuring compressor, blower motor, and condenser fan current
Maintaining your air conditioner will cut your costs, improve home comfort, and minimize your risk of parts failures.

Air Conditioning FAQs
How often should heat pumps be maintained?
Because you use heat pumps for heating as well as cooling, they may need more maintenance than your other HVAC systems — assuming you’re using your heat pump heavily across more seasons of the year than you would an air conditioner or a furnace. If you normally have your systems serviced before the intense seasons of the year, having your heat pump serviced during each visit makes sense. If you normally do everything at once, an additional visit for your heat pump may be necessary.
Do I need AC repair or replacement?
You should consider the value of the investment in the long term; will your repairs today keep your system running in good condition for long enough to be worth the expenditure? Is your system so old or outdated that keeping it running is expensive, either due to lost efficiency or frequent repairs? Do you want to take advantage of newer technology for energy efficiency or for environmental reasons, or change to something different like ductless mini-splits? Any of these can make replacement the sounder option, even if you don’t strictly need to replace a system just yet.
Is my air conditioner running too much in the summer?
If it’s keeping your home comfortable, without getting too cold and without failing to control the temperature, it’s okay for your air conditioner to run essentially nonstop during the hottest days of the year. Your AC runs more efficiently when it stays on than when it turns on and off constantly; this can happen when your system is too big for your home and ends up wasting electricity and putting more wear and tear on components. Of course, if your system simply isn’t keeping your home cool despite all its work, or shows other problems, running constantly might not be a good thing.
Can I wait to repair my AC system if it’s still running okay?
If you have a problem with your AC unit, the sooner you repair it, the less it’s going to cost you in the long term. Even if your system still keeps your home cool despite having problems, it’s going to be running less efficiently, and it’s going to be more likely to end up with serious damage — don’t wait to schedule AC repair, or you may be stuck needing emergency repairs on hot summer days.
