ac tune-up and why scheduling one will pay dividends for you and your home.
April 24, 2017

It’s spring cleaning season which means it’s time for an AC tune-up. Homeowners nowadays believe spring cleaning means getting rid of old piles of random stuff that’s accumulated throughout winter. However, spring cleaning should be more than just that. Without an AC tune-up, you can see a lot of problems go wrong with your AC. If it’s not cleaned, then the indoor air quality of your home could be affected. Not only that, but when the warmer heat is settled and we’re dealing with rising temperatures, your AC could break down when you might need it most. An AC tune-up can go a long way for you and your home, and can save you on additional expenses you might need in the future. So stay proactive and learn more about how you can benefit from an early season AC tune-up.

What Can Happen Without an AC Tune-Up?

Scheduling an AC tune-up should not feel like a chore, instead it should become more of a routine for your home. We should be treating out AC systems the same way we treat our cars. If you were in need of an oil change or your brakes were in need of a repair, would you ignore those factors? We doubt it. That is why we should consider scheduling tune-ups for our AC systems the same way we do for our cars. It shouldn’t seem like such a hassle. You can waste money on utility bills if your AC isn’t up to date because the system isn’t clean and works harder to produce cool air. The system could also fail when you need it most, since it’s been awhile since you checked it and you technically don’t know the status of your system as much as you should. One other factor to consider is your water line might become clogged, which causes major damage to your home. A simple tune-up will really solve all of these cases for you.

What Will You Get Out of an AC Tune-Up?

There are many methods and things to check when it comes to a tune-up. Here at Air Tech HVAC, Inc., we cover the entire field for an AC tune-up that way you can relax knowing your system is running properly and efficiently, no matter the season:

  • Clean and lubricated indoor components such as blower fans and coils. This will help the unit run efficiently, keeping your utility bills low.
  • AC refrigerant levels will be checked to ensure your AC is blowing cold air. If the levels are low, then that could indicate a leak in the system.
  • Air filter changed to help the unit run more efficiently. Will also keep dust and allergens down in your home.
  • Electrical connections will be tightened and inspected including the fan blades and motor for any damage.
  • Parts will also be lubricated by the technician if needed and safety devices will be inspected for proper operation.
  • Operation on all HVAC units will be checked to make sure everything is in peak running condition for the respected season.
  • Clean outdoor units, which means leaves, twigs, grass, dirt, etc. is removed that might have added up during the winter months.
  • Thermostats will be tested for proper operation, calibration, and levels to ensure your cooling system is the right temperature.
  • Most air conditioners have a drainage hole on the base of the cabinet. This hole needs to be kept clear, which is also part of an AC tune-up. This will ensure the system continues to work well. The technician will remove any obstructions during the inspection when they flush and treat the condensate drain.
  • And lastly, duct work will be inspected for any leaks.
