How Can a Tune-Up Help Your Air Conditioner During the Summer Months?06/18/2015 Don’t begin your summer without a scheduled air conditioner tune-up from a Craig's Heating & Cooling professional. We often overlook HVAC maintenance or never give it a sense of urgency, but annual air conditioner maintenance can help your system operate, keeping you comfortable and cool all season long. These annual tune-ups do more than just keep you comfy, too – they are also crucial for your comfort and wallet. What do tune-ups do for my home? Ensure energy efficiency – Maintenance keep your air conditioner operating as effectively as possible, therefore keeping your home more cozy. Air conditioners are investments that need to constantly be maintained, just like any other investment, to confirm that you are getting maximum benefits from it. Minimize need for repairs – These hot days in Bountiful are the worst time for an air conditioner to fail. With routine system maintenance, you won’t have to worry about breakdowns or maintenance in the middle of the season. Our professionals can search for warnings and indicate problems for your air conditioner and caution you long before any problems occur. Lower expenses – When your air conditioner is running 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 perfect for your air conditioner to be running correctly. Too little refrigerant can cause additional wear on your system, and too much refrigerant will influence how your air cools. Technicians will always examine these levels during an air conditioner service and regulate things appropriately. Filter status check – Air conditioner filters should be changed according to the manufacturer’s advice, so the sanitation of your filters will always be inspected during a tune-up. Dirty filters cause your air conditioner to work harder than it has to and can also cause the air in your home to look and feel unclean. Coil check – Our pros will search so that no dust or other particles have accumulated on the outdoor or interior coils of your system. This dust can force air conditioners to use more energy than required and is vital to be cleaned. System Operating Check – Our professionals will ensure that all moving parts of the air conditioner are working cohesively together.
