How Can a Tune-Up Help Your Air Conditioner During the Summer Months?06/18/2015 Don’t begin your summer without a planned air conditioner tune-up from a Brian’s Heating & Cooling, Inc. professional. We often don’t remember HVAC maintenance or never give it a sense of importance, but routine air conditioner maintenance can help your system run well, keeping you cozy and cool all summer long. These annual checks do more than just keep you comfortable, 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 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 obtaining maximum benefits from it. Minimize need for repairs – Summers in Madera 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 season. Our technicians can find warnings and indicate problems for your air conditioner and warn you long before any issues surface. Lower expenses – When your air conditioner is running 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 perfect for your air conditioner to be operating properly. Too little refrigerant can cause further wear on your system, and too much refrigerant will influence how your air cools. Professionals will always examine these levels during an air conditioner service and alter things accordingly. 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 checked during a maintenance visit. Dirty filters cause your air conditioner to work harder than it needs to and can also cause the air in your home to look and feel muddy. Coil check – Our experts will inspect 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 technicians will make sure that all working parts of the air conditioner are functioning cohesively together. Our professionals at Brian’s Heating & Cooling, Inc. in Madera provide top-notch and outstanding air conditioner maintenance, whether it’s just a quick service or a full-on replacement.
