How Can a Tune-Up Help Your Air Conditioner During the Summer Months?06/18/2015 Don’t start your summer without a booked air conditioner tune-up from a Hillcrest Air Conditioning & Plumbing technician. We often forget about HVAC maintenance or never give it a sense of urgency, but annual air conditioner tune-ups can help your system run well, keeping you comfy and cool all summer long. These regular tune-ups do more than just keep you cozy, too – they are also critical for your comfort and wallet. What do tune-ups do for my home? Ensure energy efficiency – Services keep your air conditioner running as efficiently as possible, therefore keeping your home more cozy. Air conditioners are investments that need to continuously be upkept, just like any other investment, to confirm that you are getting all the possible benefits from it. Minimize need for repairs – Summers in Bakersfield are the worst time for an air conditioner to break. With routine system maintenance, you won’t have to worry about failures or maintenance in the middle of the hottest day of the year. Our technicians can search for warnings and indicate trouble for your air conditioner and caution you long before any troubles occur. Lower expenses – When your air conditioner is operating at its peak, you could detect a decrease 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 perfect for your air conditioner to be running properly. Too little refrigerant can cause further wear on your system, and too much refrigerant will affect how your air cools. Professionals will always check these levels during an air conditioner tune-up and regulate things accordingly. Filter status check – Air conditioner filters should be exchanged according to the manufacturer’s suggestions, so the sanitation of your filters will always be checked during a tune-up. Dirty filters make your air conditioner to work harder than it has to and can also cause the air in your home to look and feel dirty. Coil check – Our pros will check that no dust or other particles have collected on the outside or interior coils of your system. This dust can cause air conditioners to use more energy than necessary and is important to be cleaned. System Operating Check – Our experts will guarantee that all moving parts of the air conditioner are working cohesively together.
