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

Cooling

Before you begin filling up the calendar with summer vacations and trips, take a few minutes to schedule time to have your air conditioner examined 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 wouldn’t argue that the summer months in Naples are not the best time for an air conditioner to give out. Scheduling air conditioner service lets you be more proactive and our expert technicians can check 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 increases the efficiency of your air conditioner. Air conditioners are investments that you should continually check on and maintain to make sure you are getting the most out or your system.
  • Reduce expenses – You want the greatest performance possible out of your air conditioner. A living space that offers home comfort is the main goal, but a properly running air conditioner also reduces 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 check the cleanliness of the existing 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 not good things when talking about refrigerant levels. Too little refrigerant can cause extra stress on your system and too much will affect how efficiently your air conditioner cools your home.
  • Check electrical connections – There are a lot of moving parts involved in an air conditioner and when those moving parts become loose it increases the possibility 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 impair efficiency and cause more energy to be expended.
