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 WM J Kraus & Son professional. We often don’t remember HVAC maintenance or never give it a sense of urgency, but regular air conditioner maintenance can help your system operate, keeping you comfy and cool throughout the summer. These regular tune-ups do more than just keep you comfortable, too – they are also vital for your comfort and wallet. What do tune-ups do for my home? Ensure energy efficiency – Maintenance keep your air conditioner working as effectively as possible, therefore keeping your home more comfy. Air conditioners are investments that need to constantly be maintained, just like any other investment, to ensure that you are receiving full benefits from it. Minimize need for repairs – These warmer months in Keokuk are the worst time for an air conditioner to fail. With routine system maintenance, you won’t have to worry about failures or repairs in the middle of the summer heat. Our technicians can search for warnings and pinpoint issues for your air conditioner and warn you long before any troubles occur. Lower expenses – When your air conditioner is operating at its top performance, you could detect 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 just right 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 tune-up and adjust things appropriately. Filter status check – Air conditioner filters should be changed according to the manufacturer’s advice, so the sanitation of your filters will always be checked during a tune-up. 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 muddy. Coil check – Our pros 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 vital to be cleaned. System Operating Check – Our experts will make sure that all operating parts of the air conditioner are functioning cohesively together.
