How Can a Tune-Up Help Your Air Conditioner During the Summer Months?06/18/2015Before you start filling up the calendar with summer vacations and trips, take a few minutes to schedule time to have your air conditioner attended to by a heating and cooling professional. Routine maintenance may not give you 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 wouldn’t argue that the summer months in Stuart are not the greatest time for an air conditioner to go out. Scheduling air conditioner service helps you be more proactive and our expert technicians can check for any red flags that indicate trouble ahead for your air conditioner. Ensure efficient operations – Not only can tune-ups identify areas of concern, but it also keeps your air conditioner running as efficiently as possible. Air conditioners are investments that you should continually check on and maintain to make sure you are maximizing the benefits from your unit. Reduce expenses – You want the optimal performance possible out of your air conditioner. A living space that offers home comfort is the main priority, but a properly running air conditioner also reduces 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 the very least every three months, so the technician will examine the cleanliness of the filter. By not changing your filters, you force your air conditioner to run harder than it should and can also reduce the quality of the air in your house. Check refrigerant charge – Too much and too little are not good things when talking about refrigerant levels. Too little refrigerant can cause additional stress on your system and too much will reduce how efficiently your air conditioner cools your home. Check electrical connections – There are a lot of moving parts that are included in an air conditioner and when any of these 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 increase the amount of energy used.
