Everyone enjoys walking into a nice, cool air conditioned home after being out on a hot summer day. For those of us living here in Las Vegas this is doubly true. We saw temperatures hit a record high of 117 degrees just this past June. This means your air conditioner has been working extra hard to keep you comfortable. So, Why wouldn't you want to do everything you can to keep it running at peak performance?
There are a multitude of benefits that come from getting regular yearly tune-ups for your air conditioning unit.
First and foremost... it can help you save money on your electric bill! An a/c tune-up improves the efficiency of your unit. They also provide for a more comfortable living space. Having regular tune-ups will also help to prevent future break downs and malfunctions.
Repairs can be costly and are most definitely inconvenient, no matter when they happen. Having your air conditioner serviced once a year at your convenience is a lot easier than being caught off guard.
When you schedule your AC unit to have its tune-up, your HVAC agent will conduct a number of test and check several areas... such as:
- They will calibrate your thermostat to verify it is reading the correct temperature.
- An inspection of your air conditioners coolant levels and pressure will be performed.
- They will look for any loose wiring, contacts, capacitors, or relays and secure them.
- They will clean the condenser coil, and condenser. They will also check to be sure they are free of any damage.
- If the fan motor and blades require lubrication that will be taken care of.
- They will do an inspection of the outdoor disconnect.
- Should any additional safety or efficiency inspections be needed, they will be performed.
You should of course continue to clean and change the filters in your air conditioning unit regularly.
