If you want to make sure your car is in good working condition you take it to get work done on it. You take it on a regular basis for oil changes, tire pressure regulation and tune ups. This is the only way to ensure that the car is working well and lasts as long as it was intended. The same goes when you have an appliance such as the air conditioning unit. The AC is a major appliance and it requires work throughout the year to ensure it works and is in good shape. It is a good idea to have your air conditioning unit tuned up. The tune up clean and check can be a major benefit to your HVAC unit. Steve’s Heating & Air outlines what happens when you have your air conditioning unit tuned up.
Check for Damage During AC Tune Up
When air conditioning professionals like Steve’s Heating & Air come out to your house and do a tune up we will look for damage. They are able to go through all the working and moving parts to locate any that are damaged. They may be small or minor but the longer they are left the more damage they can do. You want to make sure that any parts that need to be repaired or replaced are taken care of on a regular basis and the best way to do that is to have a tune up done.
Home AC Efficiency
We will also look at the usage of the unit and the efficiency of it as well. We want to make sure you are getting what you expect from your unit. The unit should be able to keep up with cooling or heating your home when you need it to. It also should not be overworked to get to a desired temperature. If the unit is not running efficiently it can mean that you need to replace it.
Clean & Lubricate Air Conditioner Fan, Blower Motor & Other Moving Parts
Over time the parts that are moving on the unit will get dirty and dingy and can start to slow down. That means that you need to have those same working parts cleaned and lubricated as well. This will ensure that they do not stop working and seize up. The tune up will include lubricating the working parts and keeping them clean.
We also will take some time to look at the thermostat that you have in your house as well. The thermostat is the control center of your unit and needs to be working well so that you can control the temperature. There are always newer and better thermostats out there and replacing it is not a bad idea on occasion. We can look at the thermostat and make sure that all the aspects of it are working and are upgraded.
Clean Air Conditioner Condenser Unit
You also want to make sure that the unit is cleaned and cleared of any dirt and debris. This will be done when you have your unit tuned up. We will come out and clean what needs to be cleaned and keep any debris away from the outdoor unit. We also can replace the filters so you are starting out fresh.
