How Can a Tune-Up Help Your Air Conditioner During the Summer Months?06/18/2015 Don’t begin your summer without a booked air conditioner tune-up from a Street Heating & Sheet Metal Inc expert. We often don’t remember HVAC maintenance or never give it a sense of importance, but annual air conditioner tune-ups can help your system perform, keeping you comfortable and cool throughout the summer. These regular services do more than just keep you comfy, 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 running as efficiently as possible, therefore keeping your home more cozy. Air conditioners are investments that need to continuously be maintained, just like any other investment, to ensure that you are receiving maximum benefits from it. Minimize need for repairs – These hot days in Rapid City are the cruelest time for an air conditioner to fail. With annual system maintenance, you won’t have to worry about breakdowns or repairs in the middle of the season. Our technicians can look for signals and indicate issues for your air conditioner and warn you long before any issues arise. Lower expenses – When your air conditioner is running at its best, 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 leveled for your air conditioner to be working properly. Too little refrigerant can cause further wear on your system, and too much refrigerant will influence how your air cools. Technicians will always examine these levels during an air conditioner service and adjust things fittingly. Filter status check – Air conditioner filters should be changed according to the manufacturer’s recommendations, so the hygiene of your filters will always be checked during a tune-up. Dirty filters make your air conditioner to work harder than it should and can also make the air in your home to look and feel unclean. Coil check – Our experts will check that no dust or other particles have gathered on the outside or interior coils of your system. This dust can force air conditioners to use more energy than needed and is crucial to be cleaned. System Operating Check – Our experts will ensure that all operating parts of the air conditioner are running cohesively together.
