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 give you 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 Tucson are not the greatest time for an air conditioner to give out. 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 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 optimal performance possible out of your air conditioner. A comfortable living area is the main purpose, but a properly running air conditioner also lowers the cost of your energy bills and lengthens 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 examine the cleanliness of your filter. Dirty filters force your air conditioner to run harder than it should and can also lower the quality of the air in your house.
  • Check refrigerant charge – Too much and too little are not good things when talking about refrigerant levels. Too little refrigerant can cause additional stress on your system and too much will affect how efficiently your air conditioner cools.
  • 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 collect on both your outdoor and indoor coils, which can hurt efficiency and increase the amount of energy used.
