Warm weather has finally arrived and that means it’s time to have our air conditioning systems tuned up. Along with spring cleaning, it is also important to clean up the outside of our homes. It won’t be long before hot weather returns and that is when we will need our air conditioners to keep us cool and comfortable.One of the best ways to ensure that your AC is working well is to have them tuned up.
Besides keeping us comfortable and cool it is also important to have a tune-up because it will keep the AC working safely and effectively. If an AC unit is not regularly checked and tuned up it could overheat, break down or the coolant level could go low and give a poor quality of cooling and dehumidifying in the home. Regular tune-ups keep your AC running at peak efficiency and that can save you money on your energy bills. Other benefits are: healthier air, a reduction in noise during the cooling cycle and possibly fewer breakdowns.
It is important to note that a tune-up includes: cleaning of all coils, a system inspection, lubrication of parts, a replacement of an air filter, cleaning of all coils, checking of pressure and fluid levels, cleaning and draining of the condensate line, checking of thermostat controls and system wiring and a system performance test.
Other reasons why your AC needs a tune up in the spring are: cleaning of residue around the air conditioner that accumulates during the fall and winter, a more flexible schedule for an appointment, being able to catch problems early in the spring and avoid a breakdown, improve the efficiency of your AC and having peace of mind that your AC is in good shape and ready for the hot summer months.
