How Can a Tune-Up Help Your Air Conditioner During the Summer Months?06/18/2015 Don’t start your summer without a scheduled air conditioner tune-up from a Cytech Heating & Cooling professional. We often forget about HVAC maintenance or never give it a sense of importance, but annual air conditioner maintenance can help your system perform, keeping you cozy and cool all season long. These routine tune-ups do more than just keep you comfy, too – they are also critical for your comfort and wallet. What do tune-ups do for my home? Ensure energy efficiency – Tune-ups keep your air conditioner working as efficiently as possible, therefore keeping your home more comfy. Air conditioners are investments that need to routinely be maintained, just like any other investment, to ensure that you are getting maximum benefits from it. Minimize need for repairs – These hot days in the Upper Rio Grande Valley are the worst time for an air conditioner to fail. With routine system maintenance, you won’t have to worry about malfunctions or upkeep in the middle of the hottest day of the year. Our experts can search for signs and pinpoint trouble for your air conditioner and warn you long before any issues arise. Lower expenses – When your air conditioner is running at its peak, 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 leveled for your air conditioner to be running correctly. Too little refrigerant can cause extra wear on your system, and too much refrigerant will change how your air cools. Technicians will always examine these levels during an air conditioner service and adjust things accordingly. Filter status check – Air conditioner filters should be exchanged according to the manufacturer’s recommendations, so the sanitation of your filters will always be examined during a maintenance visit. Dirty filters cause your air conditioner to work harder than it should and can also cause the air in your home to look and feel dirty. Coil check – Our experts will search so that no dust or other particles have gathered on the outside or indoor coils of your system. This dust can make air conditioners to use more energy than needed and is important to be cleaned. System Operating Check – Our professionals will ensure that all working parts of the air conditioner are working cohesively together.
