Air Conditioner Tune Up

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

Before you begin filling up the calendar with summer vacations and trips, make sure you schedule time to have your air conditioner attended to 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 wouldn’t argue that the summer months in Hickory are not the best time for an air conditioner to give out. Scheduling air conditioner service helps you be more proactive and our expert technicians can look for any red flags that indicate trouble ahead for your air conditioner.
  • Ensure efficient operations – Not only can tune-ups acknowledge 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 receiving the optimal benefits from your unit.
  • Reduce expenses – You want the best performance possible out of your air conditioner. A comfortable living area is the main priority, but a properly running air conditioner also lowers the cost of 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 least every three months, so the technician will take a look at the cleanliness of the filter. By not changing your filters, you force your air conditioner to work harder than necessary and can also lower the quality of the air in your home.
  • Check refrigerant charge – Too much and too little are certainly not good things when it comes to refrigerant levels. Too little refrigerant can cause additional stress on your system and too much will reduce how efficiently your air conditioner cools your home.
  • Check electrical connections – There are a lot of moving parts involved in an air conditioner and when these become loose it increases the chance 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.
