How Can a Tune-Up Help Your Air Conditioner During the Summer Months?06/18/2015 Don’t lead into your summer without a booked air conditioner tune-up from a Quality Refrigeration technician. We often overlook HVAC maintenance or never give it a sense of importance, but regular air conditioner service can help your system perform, keeping you cozy and cool all season long. These regular checks do more than just keep you comfortable, 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 efficiently as possible, therefore keeping your home more comfy. Air conditioners are investments that need to constantly be upkept, just like any other investment, to check that you are receiving maximum benefits from it. Minimize need for repairs – Summers in Baltimore are the cruelest time for an air conditioner to stop working. With routine system maintenance, you won’t have to worry about breakdowns or maintenance in the middle of the summer heat. Our technicians can look for signs and indicate trouble for your air conditioner and warn you long before any issues arise. Lower expenses – When your air conditioner is operating at its top performance, you could notice 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 leveled for your air conditioner to be running correctly. Too little refrigerant can cause additional wear on your system, and too much refrigerant will influence how your air cools. Professionals will always look at these levels during an air conditioner service and adjust things accordingly. Filter status check – Air conditioner filters should be exchanged according to the manufacturer’s suggestions, so the hygiene of your filters will always be checked during a service visit. Dirty filters force your air conditioner to work harder than it has to and can also force the air in your home to look and feel dirty. Coil check – Our experts will check that no dust or other particles have accumulated on the outdoor or indoor coils of your system. This dust can cause air conditioners to use more energy than necessary and is important to be cleaned. System Operating Check – Our experts will guarantee that all working parts of the air conditioner are running cohesively together.
