How Can a Tune-Up Help Your Air Conditioner During the Summer Months?06/18/2015 Don’t start your summer without a planned air conditioner tune-up from a Ackerman Heating & Air Conditioning expert. We often forget about HVAC maintenance or never give it a sense of importance, but routine air conditioner service can help your system operate, keeping you comfy and cool throughout the summer. These routine tune-ups do more than just keep you comfy, too – they are also critical for your comfort and wallet. What do tune-ups do for my home? Ensure energy efficiency – Services keep your air conditioner operating as effectively as possible, therefore keeping your home more comfortable. Air conditioners are investments that need to constantly be maintained, just like any other investment, to confirm that you are receiving all the possible benefits from it. Minimize need for repairs – These warmer months in Colfax are the nastiest time for an air conditioner to break. With regular system maintenance, you won’t have to worry about breakdowns or maintenance in the middle of the season. Our professionals can look for signals and indicate trouble for your air conditioner and caution you long before any issues arise. Lower expenses – When your air conditioner is working at its best, you could detect a reduction 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 just right for your air conditioner to be running properly. Too little refrigerant can cause additional wear on your system, and too much refrigerant will affect how your air cools. Technicians 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 advice, so the cleanliness of your filters will always be inspected during a tune-up. Dirty filters cause your air conditioner to work harder than it needs to and can also force the air in your home to look and feel unclean. Coil check – Our experts will inspect that no dust or other particles have collected on the outdoor or inside coils of your system. This dust can force air conditioners to use more energy than required and is important to be cleaned. System Operating Check – Our professionals will ensure that all moving parts of the air conditioner are functioning cohesively together.
