How Can a Tune-Up Help Your Air Conditioner During the Summer Months?06/18/2015 Don’t start your summer without a planned air conditioner tune-up from a Alltemp Comfort Services LLC expert. We often forget about HVAC maintenance or never give it a sense of urgency, but annual air conditioner tune-ups can help your system run well, keeping you comfy and cool all summer long. These routine tune-ups do more than just keep you comfy, too – they are also critical for your comfort and wallet. What do tune-ups do for my home? Ensure energy efficiency – Tune-ups keep your air conditioner operating as efficiently as possible, therefore keeping your home more comfy. Air conditioners are investments that need to constantly be sustained, just like any other investment, to check that you are obtaining all the possible benefits from it. Minimize need for repairs – These hot days in Columbia are the nastiest time for an air conditioner to stop working. With regular system maintenance, you won’t have to worry about failures or maintenance in the middle of the season. Our experts can look for signals and pinpoint issues for your air conditioner and notify you long before any issues arise. Lower expenses – When your air conditioner is working at its peak, you could notice a drop in your energy bills throughout the year. What will take place during an air conditioner tune-up? Refrigerant charge check – Refrigerant levels need to be leveled for your air conditioner to be running properly. Too little refrigerant can cause further wear on your system, and too much refrigerant will change how your air cools. Professionals will always look at these levels during an air conditioner tune-up and regulate things accordingly. Filter status check – Air conditioner filters should be exchanged according to the manufacturer’s advice, so the sanitation of your filters will always be checked during a service visit. Dirty filters cause your air conditioner to work harder than it needs to and can also cause the air in your home to look and feel muddy. Coil check – Our professionals will search so that no dust or other particles have gathered on the outdoor or indoor coils of your system. This dust can force air conditioners to use more energy than required and is crucial to be cleaned. System Operating Check – Our professionals will ensure that all operating parts of the air conditioner are functioning cohesively together.
