How Can a Tune-Up Help Your Air Conditioner During the Summer Months?06/18/2015 Don’t begin your summer without a booked air conditioner tune-up from a Beck Cohen professional. We often forget about HVAC maintenance or never give it a sense of importance, but annual air conditioner maintenance can help your system operate, keeping you comfortable and cool throughout the summer. These annual services do more than just keep you comfy, too – they are also vital for your comfort and wallet. What do tune-ups do for my home? Ensure energy efficiency – Tune-ups keep your air conditioner operating as usefully as possible, therefore keeping your home more comfy. Air conditioners are investments that need to constantly be maintained, just like any other investment, to confirm that you are receiving all the possible benefits from it. Minimize need for repairs – These warmer months in Charlottesville are the nastiest time for an air conditioner to stop working. With regular system maintenance, you won’t have to worry about malfunctions or maintenance in the middle of the season. Our professionals can find signals and reveal problems for your air conditioner and warn you long before any issues occur. 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 just right for your air conditioner to be working accurately. Too little refrigerant can cause extra wear on your system, and too much refrigerant will influence how your air cools. Professionals will always look at these levels during an air conditioner service and alter things accordingly. Filter status check – Air conditioner filters should be changed according to the manufacturer’s recommendations, so the hygiene of your filters will always be examined during a tune-up. Dirty filters force your air conditioner to work harder than it needs to and can also make the air in your home to look and feel muddy. Coil check – Our pros will search so that no dust or other particles have collected on the outdoor or interior coils of your system. This dust can force air conditioners to use more energy than necessary and is crucial to be cleaned. System Operating Check – Our experts will ensure that all working parts of the air conditioner are running cohesively together.
