For most homeowners, protecting the energy efficiency, overall performance, and lifespan of the air conditioner is a primary goal. A primary factor is that the air conditioner should be properly serviced by a professional as a part of the routine care and maintenance. In order to maximize the attributes of your cooling system, it is critical you have the unit tuned up every year by a certified expert. With this in mind, we at Steve’s Heating & Air would like to relate more concerning air conditioning tune up services.
What Should an AC Tune Up Include?
Just before you start to rely on your cooling system on consistent basis, you should have the air conditioning tune-up service. The technician is thorough and covers the ins and outs of the unit and cooling system I order to be sure the unit is ready to endure the season. Tasks include in a tune-up:
Fix Loose AC Wiring Connection. After an evaluation and testing of the electrical system, the wiring is proficiently tightened down and adjusted.
Test AC Blower Motor. For reliable performance and the condition of the unit, the blower motor and the condition of the belt is inspected.
Check AC Refrigerant & Lube Moving Parts. In order to ensure the unit has not a sprung a leak, the technician will inspect the coolant levels. The moving parts are properly lubed decrease friction and the damage and energy costs that can occur.
Clean Condenser Coils. A comprehensive cleaning is produced on the condenser coils since they are susceptible to collecting a lot of dirt and debris. Because it increases the wear and tear, the energy efficiency is reduced by the accumulation of the filth significantly.
Calibrate Thermostat. The thermostat is completely calibrated.
Check Ductwork. The expected airflow and potential energy loss are checked in the ductwork.
Is an AC Tune Up Worth It?
During the tune-up service, the air conditioner undergoes a series of tests that check for performance and safety ultimately as well as cleaning everything, lubing the necessary areas, and adjusting; and the moving parts are checked on for excessive wear and replaced if needed. The tune-up increases the overall health, longevity, and performance helps maintains a smoothly
For the advantages below, schedule air conditioning tune-up annually:
1) Extend AC Lifespan. Depending on the quality of the unit and the care that is provided, the A/C unit can between 15 and 20 years on average. To ensure the unit makes it to its expected lifespan, and maybe longer, the unit needs a tuned-up every year.
2) AC Warranty. Documented proof of professional maintenance scheduled on time is sometimes required in order to keep the warranty valid. Parts or a replacement expense may not be covered with the warranty if the maintenance was neglected should you have an issue with the unit.
3) Operation of Air Conditioner. As we have mentioned a few times, tune-ups in conjunction with additional maintenance, care, and immediate repairs are needed to keep the unit operating to its full potential. When temperatures are on the rise outside, you want a reliable cooling system making your home comfortable.
4) Less AC Repair Needs. Serious breakdowns and other repair needs are significantly reduced with early tune-up services. The technicians often intervene during early development of wear and tear that can cause those unexpected problems during the tune-up process.
