How Can a Tune-Up Help Your Air Conditioner During the Summer Months?06/18/2015 Don’t lead into your summer without a planned air conditioner tune-up from a Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc. professional. We often overlook HVAC maintenance or never give it a sense of importance, but routine air conditioner maintenance can help your system operate, keeping you cozy and cool throughout the summer. These annual services do more than just keep you comfortable, too – they are also crucial for your comfort and wallet. What do tune-ups do for my home? Ensure energy efficiency – Tune-ups keep your air conditioner working as efficiently as possible, therefore keeping your home more comfy. Air conditioners are investments that need to routinely be sustained, just like any other investment, to check that you are receiving all the possible benefits from it. Minimize need for repairs – These hot days in West Columbia are the cruelest time for an air conditioner to break. With annual system maintenance, you won’t have to worry about breakdowns or upkeep in the middle of the hottest day of the year. Our experts can look for signals and pinpoint problems for your air conditioner and caution you long before any troubles arise. Lower expenses – When your air conditioner is operating at its peak, you could detect 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. Experts will always examine these levels during an air conditioner maintenance and adjust things accordingly. Filter status check – Air conditioner filters should be exchanged according to the manufacturer’s suggestions, so the sanitation of your filters will always be examined during a service visit. Dirty filters make your air conditioner to work harder than it should and can also cause the air in your home to look and feel dirty. Coil check – Our pros will check that no dust or other particles have accumulated on the outside or indoor coils of your system. This dust can force air conditioners to use more energy than necessary and is vital to be cleaned. System Operating Check – Our experts will make sure that all moving parts of the air conditioner are working cohesively together.
