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 wouldn’t argue that the summer months in Mount Pleasant are not the best time for an air conditioner to go out. Scheduling air conditioner service helps you be more proactive and our expert technicians can look for any red flags that indicate trouble ahead for your air conditioner.
  • Ensure efficient operations – Not only can tune-ups identify areas of concern, but it also keeps your air conditioner running as efficiently as possible. Air conditioners are investments that you are required to continually check on and maintain to make sure you are getting the most out or your system.
  • Reduce expenses – You want the best performance possible out of your air conditioner. A comfortable living area is the main purpose, but a properly running air conditioner also helps lower 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 least every three months, so the technician will check the cleanliness of the existing filter. By not changing your filters, you force your air conditioner to work harder and can also lower the quality of the air in your living space.
  • Check refrigerant charge – Too much and too little are never good things when talking about refrigerant levels. Too little refrigerant can cause extra stress on your system and too much will impact how efficiently your air conditioner cools your home.
  • Check electrical connections – There are a lot of moving parts that are included 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.
