These routine tune-ups do more than just keep you comfy, 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 running as effectively as possible, therefore keeping your home more comfy. Air conditioners are investments that need to continuously be upkept, just like any other investment, to ensure that you are getting all the possible benefits from it. Minimize need for repairs – These hot days in Utica are the nastiest time for an air conditioner to break. With routine system maintenance, you won’t have to worry about failures or upkeep in the middle of the season. Our professionals can search for signals and pinpoint problems for your air conditioner and notify you long before any issues surface. Lower expenses – When your air conditioner is operating at its peak, you could see 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 just right for your air conditioner to be operating properly. Too little refrigerant can cause extra wear on your system, and too much refrigerant will affect how your air cools. Professionals will always look at these levels during an air conditioner tune-up and regulate things appropriately. Filter status check – Air conditioner filters should be exchanged according to the manufacturer’s suggestions, so the cleanliness of your filters will always be checked during a service visit. Dirty filters force your air conditioner to work harder than it should and can also force the air in your home to look and feel dirty. Coil check – Our professionals will inspect that no dust or other particles have collected on the outdoor or interior coils of your system. This dust can make air conditioners to use more energy than required and is crucial to be cleaned.
