How Can a Tune-Up Help Your Air Conditioner During the Summer Months?

June 18, 2015

Before you start filling up the calendar with summer vacations and trips, take a few minutes 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 realize that the summer months in Anaheim are not the ideal time for an air conditioner to stop working. Scheduling air conditioner service lets 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 helps your air conditioner operate as efficient as possible. Air conditioners are investments that you need 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 comfortable home is the main priority, 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 examine the cleanliness of the existing filter. By not changing your filters, you force your air conditioner to run harder than it should and can also lower the quality of the air in your living space.
  • Check refrigerant charge – Too much and too little are not good things when referring to refrigerant levels. Too little refrigerant can cause additional stress on your system and too much will impact how efficiently your air conditioner maintains cool temperatures in your home.
  • Check electrical connections – There are lots of moving parts that are included in an air conditioner and when those moving parts become loose it increases the risk of sparks or other damage to the electrical components.
  • Clean the coils – Dust and other particles can accumulate on both your outdoor and indoor coils, which can impair efficiency and increase the amount of energy used.
