How Can a Tune-Up Help Your Air Conditioner During the Summer Months?06/18/2015 Don’t begin your summer without a scheduled air conditioner tune-up from a Patterson & Stirling Inc expert. 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 comfortable and cool all summer long. These routine checks do more than just keep you cozy, 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 maintained, just like any other investment, to confirm that you are obtaining all the possible benefits from it. Minimize need for repairs – These warmer months in Erie are the nastiest time for an air conditioner to break. With annual 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 problems for your air conditioner and warn you long before any issues occur. Lower expenses – When your air conditioner is running at its peak, you could detect 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 perfect for your air conditioner to be operating properly. Too little refrigerant can cause further 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 alter things fittingly. Filter status check – Air conditioner filters should be swapped out according to the manufacturer’s advice, so the sanitation of your filters will always be inspected during a tune-up. Dirty filters make 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 pros will check that no dust or other particles have gathered on the outside or inside coils of your system. This dust can make air conditioners to use more energy than required and is crucial to be cleaned.
