How Can a Tune-Up Help Your Air Conditioner During the Summer Months?06/18/2015 Don’t begin your summer without a scheduled air conditioner tune-up from a O'Brien Heating & Air Conditioning expert. We often forget about HVAC maintenance or never give it a sense of rush, but regular air conditioner tune-ups can help your system perform, keeping you cozy and cool all season long. These regular tune-ups do more than just keep you cozy, too – they are also vital for your comfort and wallet. What do tune-ups do for my home? Ensure energy efficiency – Services keep your air conditioner working as usefully as possible, therefore keeping your home more cozy. Air conditioners are investments that need to constantly be sustained, just like any other investment, to ensure that you are obtaining all the possible benefits from it. Minimize need for repairs – These hot days in the Main Line are the cruelest time for an air conditioner to stop working. With routine system maintenance, you won’t have to worry about malfunctions or maintenance in the middle of the summer heat. Our professionals can search for signs and indicate trouble for your air conditioner and warn you long before any issues surface. Lower expenses – When your air conditioner is working at its best, 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 just right for your air conditioner to be operating properly. Too little refrigerant can cause extra wear on your system, and too much refrigerant will influence how your air cools. Technicians will always check these levels during an air conditioner maintenance and alter things fittingly. 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 force the air in your home to look and feel unclean. Coil check – Our professionals will inspect that no dust or other particles have gathered on the outside or inside coils of your system. This dust can make air conditioners to use more energy than needed and is vital to be cleaned. System Operating Check – Our technicians will make sure that all working parts of the air conditioner are working cohesively together.
