How Can a Tune-Up Help Your Air Conditioner During the Summer Months?06/18/2015 Don’t begin your summer without a booked air conditioner tune-up from a Daniel's Heating & Refrigeration Corp. technician. We often forget about HVAC maintenance or never give it a sense of urgency, but routine air conditioner tune-ups can help your system operate, keeping you cozy and cool all summer long. These routine services do more than just keep you comfy, 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 operating as usefully as possible, therefore keeping your home more cozy. Air conditioners are investments that need to constantly be upkept, just like any other investment, to check that you are receiving all the possible benefits from it. Minimize need for repairs – Summers in Midlothian are the cruelest time for an air conditioner to break. With routine system maintenance, you won’t have to worry about breakdowns or upkeep in the middle of the summer heat. Our experts can search for signs and pinpoint trouble for your air conditioner and warn you long before any issues surface. Lower expenses – When your air conditioner is working at its peak, you could see 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 working properly. 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 maintenance and adjust things appropriately. Filter status check – Air conditioner filters should be swapped out according to the manufacturer’s advice, so the cleanliness of your filters will always be inspected during a service visit. Dirty filters force your air conditioner to work harder than it should and can also make the air in your home to look and feel dirty. Coil check – Our experts will check that no dust or other particles have gathered on the outdoor or indoor coils of your system. This dust can force air conditioners to use more energy than necessary and is crucial to be cleaned. System Operating Check – Our technicians will ensure that all moving parts of the air conditioner are running cohesively together.
