Air Conditioner Tune Up

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

Before you start filling up the calendar with summer vacations and trips, take a few minutes to schedule time to have your air conditioner examined 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 Saint Marys are not the best time for an air conditioner to stop working. Scheduling air conditioner service will help you be more proactive and our expert technicians can identify 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 are required to continually check on and maintain to make sure you are receiving the optimal benefits from your unit.
  • Reduce expenses – You want the best 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 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 a minimum every three months, so the technician will take a look at the cleanliness of the filter. By not changing your filters, you force your air conditioner to run harder than it should and can also impact the quality of the air in your living space.
  • Check refrigerant charge – Too much and too little are certainly not good things when talking about refrigerant levels. Too little refrigerant can cause added stress on your system and too much will affect how efficiently your air conditioner cools your home.
  • Check electrical connections – There are many of moving parts involved in an air conditioner and when those moving parts become loose it increases the chance of sparks or other damage to the electrical components.
  • Clean the coils – Dust and other particles can collect on both your outdoor and indoor coils, which can hurt efficiency and raise the amount of energy used.
