How Can a Tune-Up Help Your Air Conditioner During the Summer Months?06/18/2015 Don’t begin your summer without a planned air conditioner tune-up from a James Heating & A/C, Inc professional. We often overlook 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 season long. These regular tune-ups do more than just keep you comfortable, too – they are also vital for your comfort and wallet. What do tune-ups do for my home? Ensure energy efficiency – Maintenance keep your air conditioner working as efficiently as possible, therefore keeping your home more comfy. Air conditioners are investments that need to constantly be maintained, just like any other investment, to ensure that you are getting maximum benefits from it. Minimize need for repairs – Summers in Lexington are the worst time for an air conditioner to stop working. With routine system maintenance, you won’t have to worry about malfunctions or repairs in the middle of the season. Our experts can find signals and indicate issues for your air conditioner and notify you long before any issues surface. Lower expenses – When your air conditioner is working 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 leveled for your air conditioner to be working correctly. Too little refrigerant can cause extra wear on your system, and too much refrigerant will influence how your air cools. Experts will always check these levels during an air conditioner maintenance and alter things appropriately. Filter status check – Air conditioner filters should be swapped out according to the manufacturer’s recommendations, so the sanitation of your filters will always be checked during a tune-up. Dirty filters force your air conditioner to work harder than it has to and can also cause the air in your home to look and feel unclean. Coil check – Our pros will search so that no dust or other particles have gathered on the exterior or inside coils of your system. This dust can make air conditioners to use more energy than required and is crucial to be cleaned.
