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 Colvin's Inc expert. We often don’t remember HVAC maintenance or never give it a sense of rush, but regular air conditioner maintenance can help your system run well, keeping you cozy and cool all summer long. These routine services 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 – Tune-ups keep your air conditioner working as efficiently as possible, therefore keeping your home more comfortable. Air conditioners are investments that need to constantly be maintained, just like any other investment, to ensure that you are obtaining maximum benefits from it. Minimize need for repairs – These hot days in Excelsior Springs are the nastiest time for an air conditioner to break. With regular system maintenance, you won’t have to worry about breakdowns or maintenance in the middle of the summer heat. Our professionals can find signals and pinpoint trouble for your air conditioner and warn you long before any troubles occur. Lower expenses – When your air conditioner is running at its best, 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 leveled for your air conditioner to be running accurately. Too little refrigerant can cause extra wear on your system, and too much refrigerant will affect how your air cools. Professionals will always examine these levels during an air conditioner service and regulate things accordingly. 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 maintenance 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 muddy. Coil check – Our professionals will inspect that no dust or other particles have gathered on the outside or inside coils of your system. This dust can cause air conditioners to use more energy than necessary and is crucial to be cleaned. System Operating Check – Our professionals will guarantee that all moving parts of the air conditioner are running cohesively together. Our professionals at Colvin's Inc in Excelsior Springs provide excellent and superb air conditioner maintenance, whether it’s just a tune-up or a full-on replacement.
