How Can a Tune-Up Help Your Air Conditioner During the Summer Months?

Cooling

Before you start filling up the calendar with summer vacations and trips, make sure you schedule time to have your air conditioner attended to by a heating and cooling professional. Routine maintenance may not give you a sense of urgency, but regular air conditioner service does more for your air conditioner than you think.

Why do tune-ups help?

  • Minimize need for repairs – Most people wouldn’t argue that the summer months in Lincoln are not the greatest time for an air conditioner to stop working. Scheduling air conditioner service will help you be more proactive and our expert technicians can look for any red flags that signal trouble ahead for your air conditioner.
  • Ensure efficient operations – Not only can tune-ups identify areas of concern, but it also keeps your air conditioner running as efficiently as possible. Air conditioners are investments that you need to continually check on and maintain to make sure you are getting the most out or your system.
  • Reduce expenses – You want the best performance possible out of your air conditioner. A comfortable living area is the main goal, but a properly running air conditioner also reduces your energy bills and prolongs the life of your system. 

What will a technician do during an air conditioning tune-up?

  • Check the filter status – It’s recommended to change your filters at a minimum every three months, so the technician will examine the cleanliness of your filter. Dirty filters force your air conditioner to run harder than it should and can also lower the quality of the air in your home.
  • Check refrigerant charge – Too much and too little are certainly not good things when talking about refrigerant levels. Too little refrigerant can cause extra stress on your system and too much will impact how efficiently your air conditioner cools your home.
  • Check electrical connections – There are many of moving parts involved in an air conditioner and when these become loose it increases the chance of sparks or other damage to the electrical components.
  • Clean the coils – Dust and other particles can accumulate on both your outdoor and indoor coils, which can hurt efficiency and increase the amount of energy used.
