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, be sure 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 agree that the summer months in Orrville are not the greatest time for an air conditioner to stop working. Scheduling air conditioner service lets you be more proactive and our expert technicians can look 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 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 comfortable living area is the main purpose, but a properly running air conditioner also helps lower your energy bills and lengthens 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 your filter. By not changing your filters, you force your air conditioner to work harder and can also reduce the quality of the air in your living space. Check refrigerant charge – Too much and too little are never 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 maintains cool temperatures in your home. 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 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 hurt efficiency and raise the amount of energy used.
