How Can a Tune-Up Help Your Air Conditioner During the Summer Months?06/18/2015Before you begin 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 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 realize that the summer months in Plover are not the best time for an air conditioner to go out. Scheduling air conditioner service will help you be more proactive and our expert technicians can look for any red flags that suggest trouble ahead for your air conditioner. Ensure efficient operations – Not only can tune-ups pinpoint areas of concern, but it also increases the efficiency of your air conditioner. 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 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 adds years to 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 take a look at the cleanliness of your filter. Dirty filters 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 certainly not good things when it comes to refrigerant levels. Too little refrigerant can cause added stress on your system and too much will impact how efficiently your air conditioner cools. Check electrical connections – There are lots of moving parts within in an air conditioner and when any of these parts become loose it increases the chance 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 impair efficiency and cause more energy to be expended.
