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 Mitchell Heating expert. We often overlook HVAC maintenance or never give it a sense of urgency, but routine air conditioner maintenance can help your system run well, keeping you cozy and cool all season 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 working as effectively 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 all the possible benefits from it. Minimize need for repairs – Summers in Colorado Springs are the nastiest time for an air conditioner to fail. With routine system maintenance, you won’t have to worry about malfunctions or upkeep in the middle of the summer heat. Our professionals can look for warnings and indicate problems for your air conditioner and notify you long before any problems occur. Lower expenses – When your air conditioner is running at its top performance, you could detect a drop 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 further wear on your system, and too much refrigerant will influence how your air cools. Technicians will always examine these levels during an air conditioner tune-up and regulate things fittingly. Filter status check – Air conditioner filters should be changed according to the manufacturer’s advice, so the hygiene of your filters will always be examined during a tune-up. Dirty filters cause your air conditioner to work harder than it should and can also make the air in your home to look and feel muddy. Coil check – Our experts will check that no dust or other particles have collected on the exterior or interior coils of your system. This dust can force air conditioners to use more energy than needed and is crucial to be cleaned. System Operating Check – Our experts will make sure that all operating parts of the air conditioner are working cohesively together.
