Have You Scheduled an Air Conditioner Tune-Up Yet?
Have you scheduled your Jacksonville, FL residential or commercial air conditioner tune-up yet? If not, now is an ideal time to set up your appointment. Warm weather is right around the corner, and with it, your air conditioning system will be put to use. In order to be sure that the cooling system is ready for everything that mother nature dishes out, preventive maintenance is a must. Our heating and air conditioning specialists explain what a tune up service entails, how it benefits your home and the comfort of your family.
What a Tune Up Service Includes
A system tune up service must be comprehensive and should include everything required to ensure the safe, efficient and effective operation of the air conditioning system. These services include:
- Checking all fluid levels and pressure
- Cleaning or replacing the system’s air filter
- Lubrication of motor and other moving parts
- Cleaning of indoor and outdoor coils
- Ductwork inspection
- Wiring and electrical connections inspection
- Check settings on thermostat
- Run a system performance test
If any potential problems are detected during the tune up service, you should be informed of the situation and be given the opportunity to have it repaired so that the system will be working properly when you need it.
Benefits of Preventive Maintenance for Air Conditioning Systems
There are many benefits to having the air conditioning system tuned up before the onset of the summer season. These benefits include:
- A more consistent level of indoor comfort
- Improved system efficiency, resulting in lower electricity bills
- Healthier indoor air
- Early detection of system problems before a breakdown occurs
After the system is tuned up, you might find that your monthly cooling costs decrease by 30 percent or even more. That means the service could pay for itself in just a month or two of system use.
Scheduling a Preventive Maintenance Service Visit
Spring is an ideal time to schedule air conditioning tune-up services. This is because temperatures and humidity levels can skyrocket with the onset of summer, leaving a home uncomfortably warm and humid if the air conditioner is not properly working. Spring is also a good time to replace the system’s air filter since it has likely been collecting dust and debris all winter long. A typical tune up will take about 1 to 1.5 hours of work in your home.
