How Can a Tune-Up Help Your Air Conditioner During the Summer Months?06/18/2015Before 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 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 Bishop are not the best time for an air conditioner to stop working. Scheduling air conditioner service helps you be more proactive and our expert technicians can look for any red flags that suggest 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 should 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 reduces your energy bills and prolongs 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. Dirty filters force your air conditioner to work harder than necessary and can also reduce the quality of the air in your living space. Check refrigerant charge – Too much and too little are certainly not good things when referring to refrigerant levels. Too little refrigerant can cause added stress on your system and too much will affect how efficiently your air conditioner maintains cool temperatures in your home. Check electrical connections – There are many of moving parts involved in an air conditioner and when those moving parts become loose it increases the chance 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 impair efficiency and cause more energy to be expended.
