How Can a Tune-Up Help Your Air Conditioner During the Summer Months?

Cooling

Before you work on filling up the calendar with summer vacations and trips, make sure you schedule time to have your air conditioner examined by a heating and cooling professional. Routine maintenance may not feel like a sense of urgency, but regular air conditioner service does more for your air conditioner than you think.

Why do tune-ups help?

  • Minimize need for repairs – Most people agree that the summer months in Branchville are not the best time for an air conditioner to give out. Scheduling air conditioner service lets you be more proactive and our expert technicians can check for any red flags that signal trouble ahead for your air conditioner.
  • Ensure efficient operations – Not only can tune-ups identify areas of concern, but it also helps your air conditioner operate as efficient as possible. Air conditioners are investments that you need to continually check on and maintain to make sure you are receiving the optimal benefits from your unit.
  • Reduce expenses – You want the greatest performance possible out of your air conditioner. A comfortable living area is the main priority, but a properly running air conditioner also lowers the cost of your energy bills and prolongs the life of your system. 

What will a technician do during an air conditioning tune-up?

  • Check the filter status – It’s recommended to change your filters at least every three months, so the technician will check the cleanliness of the filter. Dirty filters force your air conditioner to work harder than necessary and can also reduce the quality of the air in your house.
  • Check refrigerant charge – Too much and too little are certainly not good things when talking about refrigerant levels. Too little refrigerant can cause extra stress on your system and too much will reduce how efficiently your air conditioner maintains cool temperatures in your home.
  • Check electrical connections – There are many of moving parts within in an air conditioner and when those moving parts become loose it increases the possibility of sparks or other damage to the electrical components.
  • Clean the coils – Dust and other particles can gather on both your outdoor and indoor coils, which can hurt efficiency and raise the amount of energy used.
