How Can a Tune-Up Help Your Air Conditioner During the Summer Months?06/18/2015 Don’t start your summer without a scheduled air conditioner tune-up from a Farnell Mechanical, Inc. technician. We often don’t remember HVAC maintenance or never give it a sense of urgency, but annual air conditioner tune-ups can help your system perform, keeping you comfortable and cool throughout the summer. These regular checks do more than just keep you cozy, too – they are also vital for your comfort and wallet. What do tune-ups do for my home? Ensure energy efficiency – Tune-ups keep your air conditioner operating as usefully as possible, therefore keeping your home more comfortable. Air conditioners are investments that need to routinely be upkept, just like any other investment, to confirm that you are receiving maximum benefits from it. Minimize need for repairs – Summers in Opelika are the worst time for an air conditioner to break. With annual system maintenance, you won’t have to worry about malfunctions or maintenance in the middle of the season. Our experts can look for signals and reveal trouble for your air conditioner and warn you long before any problems surface. Lower expenses – When your air conditioner is running at its top performance, you could notice a reduction 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 just right 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 check these levels during an air conditioner service and adjust things fittingly. Filter status check – Air conditioner filters should be changed according to the manufacturer’s suggestions, so the cleanliness of your filters will always be checked during a maintenance visit. Dirty filters cause your air conditioner to work harder than it needs to and can also force the air in your home to look and feel dirty. Coil check – Our experts will inspect that no dust or other particles have accumulated on the outside or interior coils of your system. This dust can make air conditioners to use more energy than necessary and is crucial to be cleaned. System Operating Check – Our technicians will make sure that all operating parts of the air conditioner are functioning cohesively together. Our professionals at Farnell Mechanical, Inc. in Opelika offer excellent and first-class air conditioner maintenance, whether it’s just a tune-up or a full-on replacement.
