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, be sure to 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 wouldn’t argue that the summer months in Greenville are not the best time for an air conditioner to give out. Scheduling air conditioner service will help you be more proactive and our expert technicians can identify any red flags that suggest trouble ahead for your air conditioner. Ensure efficient operations – Not only can tune-ups acknowledge 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 maximizing the benefits from your unit. Reduce expenses – You want the best performance possible out of your air conditioner. A comfortable living area is the main purpose, 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 check the cleanliness of your filter. Dirty filters force your air conditioner to work harder than necessary and can also impact the quality of the air in your home. 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 impact how efficiently your air conditioner cools. Check electrical connections – There are a lot of moving parts that are included 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 collect on both your outdoor and indoor coils, which can impair efficiency and raise the amount of energy used.
