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

Cooling

Don’t begin your summer without a booked air conditioner tune-up from a Van Haaften Plumbing & Heating technician. We often overlook HVAC maintenance or never give it a sense of importance, but routine air conditioner maintenance can help your system run well, keeping you cozy and cool all summer long. These annual tune-ups do more than just keep you cozy, too – they are also critical for your comfort and wallet.

What do tune-ups do for my home?

  • Ensure energy efficiency – Tune-ups keep your air conditioner running as usefully as possible, therefore keeping your home more cozy. Air conditioners are investments that need to constantly be sustained, just like any other investment, to confirm that you are receiving all the possible benefits from it.
  • Minimize need for repairs – Summers in Pella are the worst time for an air conditioner to fail. With annual system maintenance, you won’t have to worry about malfunctions or maintenance in the middle of the season. Our professionals can look for signs and pinpoint problems for your air conditioner and notify you long before any troubles occur.
  • Lower expenses – When your air conditioner is working 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 perfect for your air conditioner to be operating accurately. Too little refrigerant can cause extra wear on your system, and too much refrigerant will affect how your air cools. Technicians will always examine these levels during an air conditioner maintenance and adjust things fittingly.
  • Filter status check – Air conditioner filters should be swapped out according to the manufacturer’s advice, so the sanitation of your filters will always be inspected during a tune-up. Dirty filters force your air conditioner to work harder than it should and can also force the air in your home to look and feel dirty.
  • Coil check – Our pros will search so that no dust or other particles have collected on the exterior or interior coils of your system. This dust can cause air conditioners to use more energy than needed and is vital to be cleaned.
  • System Operating Check – Our professionals will make sure that all moving parts of the air conditioner are functioning cohesively together.
