Air Conditioner Tune Up

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

Before you work on filling up the calendar with summer vacations and trips, take a few minutes to schedule time to have your air conditioner attended to by a heating and cooling professional. Routine maintenance may not feel 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 Tuscaloosa are not the best time for an air conditioner to give out. Scheduling air conditioner service will help 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 identify areas of concern, but it also increases the efficiency of your air conditioner. 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 greatest performance possible out of your air conditioner. A comfortable home is the main goal, but a properly running air conditioner also lowers the cost of 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 check the cleanliness of the filter. By not changing your filters, you force your air conditioner to work harder and can also reduce the quality of the air in your home.
  • Check refrigerant charge – Too much and too little are 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 maintains cool temperatures in your home.
  • Check electrical connections – There are many of moving parts within in an air conditioner and when any of these parts become loose it increases the risk of sparks or other damage to the electrical components.
  • Clean the coils – Dust and other particles can gather on both your outdoor and indoor coils, which can hurt efficiency and raise the amount of energy used.
