How Can a Tune-Up Help Your Air Conditioner During the Summer Months?06/18/2015 Don’t begin your summer without a scheduled air conditioner tune-up from a Ilten's Incorporated technician. We often don’t remember HVAC maintenance or never give it a sense of urgency, but routine air conditioner service can help your system operate, keeping you comfortable and cool all summer long. These annual checks do more than just keep you comfy, too – they are also critical for your comfort and wallet. What do tune-ups do for my home? Ensure energy efficiency – Services keep your air conditioner working as usefully as possible, therefore keeping your home more comfy. Air conditioners are investments that need to continuously be upkept, just like any other investment, to check that you are obtaining maximum benefits from it. Minimize need for repairs – These hot days in Cedar Rapids are the cruelest 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 experts can find signs and reveal issues for your air conditioner and notify you long before any issues surface. Lower expenses – When your air conditioner is working at its top performance, you could notice a decrease 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 further wear on your system, and too much refrigerant will affect how your air cools. Experts will always examine these levels during an air conditioner maintenance and adjust things appropriately. Filter status check – Air conditioner filters should be changed according to the manufacturer’s advice, so the sanitation of your filters will always be inspected during a service visit. Dirty filters cause your air conditioner to work harder than it needs to and can also make the air in your home to look and feel unclean. Coil check – Our professionals will check that no dust or other particles have accumulated on the exterior or indoor coils of your system. This dust can force air conditioners to use more energy than required and is crucial to be cleaned. System Operating Check – Our professionals will guarantee that all operating parts of the air conditioner are functioning cohesively together.
