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 looked at by a heating and cooling professional. Routine maintenance may not seem 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 Bloomington are not the greatest time for an air conditioner to give out. Scheduling air conditioner service will help you be more proactive and our expert technicians can check 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 helps your air conditioner operate as efficient 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 greatest performance possible out of your air conditioner. A living space that offers home comfort is the main purpose, but a properly running air conditioner also helps lower 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 the very least every three months, so the technician will take a look at the cleanliness of the existing filter. By not changing your filters, you force your air conditioner to work harder and can also lower the quality of the air in your home. Check refrigerant charge – Too much and too little are certainly not good things when referring to refrigerant levels. Too little refrigerant can cause additional stress on your system and too much will affect how efficiently your air conditioner maintains cool temperatures in your home. Check electrical connections – There are many of moving parts within 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 impair efficiency and increase the amount of energy used.
