A goal for many homeowners is to protect the longevity, energy efficiency, and overall health of your unit and cooling system. The air conditioner should be properly maintained by a professional as a part of the routine care and maintenance. In order to maximize the attributes of your cooling system, it is essential you have the unit tuned up every year by a certified professional. To help people understand the importance, we at North Country Aire would like to share the fundamentals of an air conditioning tune-up.
Home AC Tune Up Checklist
Just before you start to rely on your cooling system on consistent basis, you should have the air conditioning tune-up service scheduled. The technician is thorough and covers the in and outs of the unit and cooling system to make certain the unit is ready to endure the season. Such tasks included in a tune-up include:
Blower. For reliable performance and the condition of the unit, the blower motor and the condition of the belt is inspected.
Condenser coils. A comprehensive cleaning is conducted on the condenser coils because they are susceptible to collecting a lot of dirt and debris. The accumulation of the filth significantly reduces the energy efficiency and increases the wear and tear.
Coolant levels and lube application. To make certain the unit has a sprung a leak, the technician checks the coolant levels. The moving parts are properly lubed to eliminate friction and the damage and energy costs that may occur.
Electrical connection. The wiring is properly tightened down and adjusted after the electrical system is tested and evaluated.
Thermostat. The thermostat is completely calibrated.
Ductwork. For expected airflow and potential energy loss, the ducts are checked.
What is Involved with Annual AC Tune Up Maintenance
Ultimately, during the tune-up service, the air conditioner undergoes a series of tests that check for performance and safety. All components are cleaned, lubed, and adjusted, and the moving parts are checked for excessive wear and replaced if needed. By the end of the tune-up, you can enjoy increased overall health and longevity of your AC system as well as improved performance to keep it running smoothly all season long.
Benefits of Air Conditioner System Tune Up
Annually scheduled air conditioning tune-up advantages:
1) Longer AC Lifespan. Depending on the quality of the unit and the care you provide, the air conditioner unit lasts 15-20 years on average. To ensure the unit makes it to its expected lifespan, and maybe longer, having the unit tuned-up every year is necessary.
2) Valid Warranty. Documented proof of professional maintenance scheduled on time is sometimes required in order to keep the warranty valid. The warranty may not cover the expenses of parts or a replacement if the maintenance was neglected should you have an issue with the unit.
3) Air Conditioner Performance. To make sure that your unit is running at its full potential, as we have mentioned a few times, tune-ups in conjunction with additional maintenance, care, and immediate repairs are needed. When temperatures are on the rise outside, you want a reliable cooling system making your home comfortable.
4) Reduced Air Conditining Repairs. Serious breakdowns and other repair needs are significantly reduced by getting a tune-up early on. The technicians often intervene during early development of wear and tear that can cause those unexpected issues during the tune-up process.
