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 Southern Heating & Cooling Inc. technician. We often forget about HVAC maintenance or never give it a sense of urgency, but routine air conditioner maintenance can help your system operate, keeping you cozy and cool all summer long. These routine tune-ups do more than just keep you comfortable, too – they are also crucial for your comfort and wallet. What do tune-ups do for my home? Ensure energy efficiency – Services keep your air conditioner running as effectively as possible, therefore keeping your home more cozy. Air conditioners are investments that need to routinely be sustained, just like any other investment, to confirm that you are getting full benefits from it. Minimize need for repairs – These warmer months in Scottsboro are the cruelest time for an air conditioner to stop working. With annual system maintenance, you won’t have to worry about breakdowns or repairs in the middle of the season. Our experts can search for signals and pinpoint problems for your air conditioner and warn you long before any issues occur. Lower expenses – When your air conditioner is operating at its top performance, 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 accurately. Too little refrigerant can cause extra wear on your system, and too much refrigerant will affect how your air cools. Professionals will always check these levels during an air conditioner maintenance and regulate things fittingly. Filter status check – Air conditioner filters should be swapped out according to the manufacturer’s suggestions, so the cleanliness of your filters will always be checked during a tune-up. Dirty filters make your air conditioner to work harder than it needs to 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 accumulated on the outdoor or inside coils of your system. This dust can make air conditioners to use more energy than necessary and is crucial to be cleaned. System Operating Check – Our technicians will make sure that all working parts of the air conditioner are working cohesively together.
