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 Polestar Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning technician. We often overlook HVAC maintenance or never give it a sense of importance, but routine air conditioner tune-ups can help your system run well, keeping you comfortable and cool throughout the summer. These annual services do more than just keep you comfortable, too – they are also crucial for your comfort and wallet. What do tune-ups do for my home? Ensure energy efficiency – Tune-ups keep your air conditioner working as effectively as possible, therefore keeping your home more cozy. Air conditioners are investments that need to routinely be sustained, just like any other investment, to confirm that you are receiving full benefits from it. Minimize need for repairs – Summers in Olathe are the cruelest time for an air conditioner to stop working. With routine system maintenance, you won’t have to worry about failures or upkeep in the middle of the hottest day of the year. Our professionals can find warnings and pinpoint issues for your air conditioner and notify you long before any issues arise. Lower expenses – When your air conditioner is operating at its peak, 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 just right for your air conditioner to be working properly. Too little refrigerant can cause additional wear on your system, and too much refrigerant will change how your air cools. Technicians will always check these levels during an air conditioner maintenance and regulate things fittingly. Filter status check – Air conditioner filters should be swapped out according to the manufacturer’s suggestions, so the cleanliness of your filters will always be examined during a maintenance visit. Dirty filters cause your air conditioner to work harder than it should and can also cause the air in your home to look and feel dirty. Coil check – Our pros will search so that no dust or other particles have accumulated on the outside or interior 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 professionals will make sure that all moving parts of the air conditioner are functioning cohesively together.
