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 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 East Hanover are not the greatest time for an air conditioner to go out. Scheduling air conditioner service helps you be more proactive and our expert technicians can identify any red flags that suggest trouble ahead for your air conditioner.
  • Ensure efficient operations – Not only can tune-ups identify 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 maximizing the benefits from your unit.
  • Reduce expenses – You want the best performance possible out of your air conditioner. A comfortable home is the main goal, but a properly running air conditioner also helps lower 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 least every three months, so the technician will check the cleanliness of your filter. Dirty filters 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 referring to refrigerant levels. Too little refrigerant can cause extra 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 a lot of moving parts within in an air conditioner and when those moving parts become loose it increases the risk of sparks or other damage to the electrical components.
  • Clean the coils – Dust and other particles can collect on both your outdoor and indoor coils, which can harm efficiency and increase the amount of energy used.
