How Can a Tune-Up Help Your Air Conditioner During the Summer Months?06/18/2015 Don’t lead into your summer without a booked air conditioner tune-up from a KDM Service Corporation technician. We often forget about HVAC maintenance or never give it a sense of urgency, but annual air conditioner maintenance can help your system operate, keeping you cozy and cool all season long. These annual checks do more than just keep you cozy, 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 working as effectively as possible, therefore keeping your home more comfortable. Air conditioners are investments that need to routinely be maintained, just like any other investment, to ensure that you are getting full benefits from it. Minimize need for repairs – Summers in Tuscaloosa are the worst time for an air conditioner to break. With regular system maintenance, you won’t have to worry about failures or repairs in the middle of the summer heat. Our technicians can look for signs and indicate trouble for your air conditioner and warn you long before any troubles surface. Lower expenses – When your air conditioner is running at its best, you could detect 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 perfect for your air conditioner to be operating properly. Too little refrigerant can cause additional wear on your system, and too much refrigerant will influence how your air cools. Professionals will always examine these levels during an air conditioner service and regulate things fittingly. Filter status check – Air conditioner filters should be exchanged according to the manufacturer’s advice, so the sanitation of your filters will always be checked during a tune-up. Dirty filters force your air conditioner to work harder than it has to and can also force the air in your home to look and feel muddy. Coil check – Our experts will check that no dust or other particles have accumulated on the exterior or interior coils of your system. This dust can cause air conditioners to use more energy than needed and is crucial to be cleaned. System Operating Check – Our technicians will ensure that all moving parts of the air conditioner are working cohesively together. Our professionals at KDM Service Corporation in Tuscaloosa offer quality and outstanding air conditioner maintenance, whether it’s just a tune-up or a full-on replacement. They are more than willing to answer any questions you have about your air conditioner whenever you need them via 205-758-2703 or through a scheduled appointment online.
