The Importance Of Annual AC Tune-Ups

Posted: April 25, 2019 by Andy

In Ohio, we rely on air conditioners to keep us comfortable during our hot, humid summers. A neglected AC unit can cause your energy bills to soar and is much more likely to fail when temperatures climb. An annual tune-up by our licensed, expert HVAC technicians will help you save money on cooling costs and avoid emergency repairs later.

Benefits of an AC tune-up

It helps prevent a breakdown. A pre-season checkup will detect problems like refrigerant leaks or a faulty motor before they become a problem, reducing the chance of a bigger problem down the road. One issue can often lead to another because it puts stress on your entire cooling system.

It saves you money. Aside from the savings you'll enjoy by avoiding emergency repairs later, you'll save up to 30% on your summer energy bills. When you consider the fact that more than half of your home's energy costs are for heating and cooling, improving your air conditioner's efficiency is a worthwhile investment.

It will extend your AC unit's lifespan. Just as regular oil changes help keep your car running smoothly for years, annual maintenance will help your air conditioner have a longer service lifespan. Keeping your unit free of dirt and dust and ensuring all parts are lubricated and working properly will help you avoid the expense of replacing your cooling system.

Your air conditioner tune-up will include:

• Checking the refrigerant level
• Replacing your system's air filter
• Testing the cooling system and capacitors
• Cleaning the evaporator and condenser coils
• Inspecting and testing all electrical connections and controls
• Cleaning and adjusting the blower
• Checking and cleaning the condensate drain
• Lubricating all motors and bearings
• Checking and calibrating the thermostat settings
• Measuring the voltage and amp draw of the blower motor, compressor and condenser fan

Spring is the best time for an AC checkup

The key is to make sure your cooling system is well-cleaned and in good repair before it gets hot outside. We advise our customers to schedule an air conditioner maintenance check during the spring or early summer at the latest. Depending on the weather, that could be anywhere from March through June. Our professional heating, ventilation, and air conditioning technicians inspect, test, clean and repair most central air conditioner brands. They're well-trained and experienced at detecting and correcting issues before they become big problems. To ensure your home - and your family! - stays cool and comfortable all summer long, schedule your spring tune-up, AC repair, or replacement today by calling us at 330-262-4100.
