How Can a Tune-Up Help Your Air Conditioner During the Summer Months?06/18/2015Before you work on 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 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 Safford are not the ideal 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 pinpoint 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 maximizing the 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 goal, but a properly running air conditioner also reduces 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 the very least every three months, so the technician will take a look at the cleanliness of the existing filter. Dirty filters force your air conditioner to work harder and can also impact the quality of the air in your living space. 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 cools your home. Check electrical connections – There are many of moving parts that are included in an air conditioner and when any of these parts become loose it increases the possibility 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 increase the amount of energy used.
