How Can a Tune-Up Help Your Air Conditioner During the Summer Months?06/18/2015 Don’t start your summer without a booked air conditioner tune-up from a McCune Heating & Cooling technician. We often forget about HVAC maintenance or never give it a sense of importance, but routine air conditioner service can help your system run well, keeping you comfy and cool all summer long. These annual tune-ups do more than just keep you comfortable, too – they are also vital for your comfort and wallet. What do tune-ups do for my home? Ensure energy efficiency – Tune-ups keep your air conditioner operating as usefully as possible, therefore keeping your home more comfy. Air conditioners are investments that need to continuously be upkept, just like any other investment, to ensure that you are getting all the possible benefits from it. Minimize need for repairs – These hot days in Augusta are the nastiest time for an air conditioner to stop working. With routine system maintenance, you won’t have to worry about malfunctions or maintenance in the middle of the summer heat. Our technicians can search for signs and indicate issues for your air conditioner and warn you long before any problems surface. Lower expenses – When your air conditioner is operating at its peak, you could see a decrease 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 operating correctly. Too little refrigerant can cause additional wear on your system, and too much refrigerant will change how your air cools. Professionals will always check these levels during an air conditioner maintenance and adjust things fittingly. Filter status check – Air conditioner filters should be swapped out according to the manufacturer’s recommendations, so the hygiene of your filters will always be inspected during a tune-up. Dirty filters make your air conditioner to work harder than it needs to and can also make the air in your home to look and feel unclean. Coil check – Our pros will inspect that no dust or other particles have accumulated on the outside or interior coils of your system. This dust can cause air conditioners to use more energy than necessary and is vital to be cleaned. System Operating Check – Our technicians will guarantee that all moving parts of the air conditioner are functioning cohesively together.
