You might have heard the term “ac tuneup” before. It’s not a scary thing, we promise. It’s actually super beneficial to the health of your AC unit which, in turn, helps you and your family stay comfortable all year long.
Importance of a Properly Maintained AC Unit
AC tuneups are just one way that you can be proactive about the wellbeing of your AC unit. While you can accomplish some tasks yourself like changing your filters regularly and being aware of your usage, getting your unit serviced by a trained technician is extremely beneficial. Regular AC tuneups let you know health of your AC unit while helping to extend the life of your unit and keep it running properly.
What Is Included In an AC Tune Up
While the process of tuning up your ac unit is thorough and includes a lot of procedures, there are a few key components that you should know about.
SEE THE FULL LIST OF WHAT IS INCLUDED IN A TUNE UP
Compressor Coils Cleaned
During a tune up, one of our technicians will clean the coils of your compressor. Your compressor is an integral part of your unit and is necessary for warm air to be received, cooled, and then make its way into your home. If the coils are dirty and won’t do their job, the whole cooling process can’t be completed which is no fun for anyone in your home.
A technician will also take a look at the fan and its motor during an AC tune up. The fan is essential to moving air through your unit that will eventually end up in your home. If a motor stops working suddenly, your unit won’t be able to move air, which is its sole purpose. It’s more likely that a fan motor will break if your unit is not properly maintained. With a tune up, a technician can diagnose problems and let you know if you’ll need to repair or replace the motor before you’re stuck without air conditioning!
Lubricate Moving Parts
As your unit is used more and more, it’s likely that dust, dirt, and debris will make their way into your unit. It’s only natural, but it’s necessary that a technician inspects your unit to clean any moving part that has become a victim to this build up. Moving parts will move slower and take more energy to operate if they are dirty. By cleaning and lubricating these parts, your unit will work more efficiently, saving you money on energy bills and extending the life of your unit.
Benefits of AC Tune Up
With an AC tune up, you are being proactive with your HVAC system and not waiting until an emergency happens to do something. Just like getting your car serviced, having your unit maintained by a HVAC technician does a whole lot of good.
With regular AC tune ups, one of our technicians will be able to get familiar with your unit, your usage patterns, and your needs. It will be easier each time our technician visits your home. It creates a partnership that ensures your unit is serving you and your needs.
Catch Problems Before They Become Costly
Having your unit inspected often will save you money in the long run. Our technicians will be able to diagnose problems or spot potential issues that could turn into major repairs in the future. By making small changes to your unit, you won’t experience sudden emergencies that could put you and your family without AC while you wait for your unit to be repaired.
Extend the Life of Your Unit
Preventative maintenance with regular AC tune ups will extend the life of your AC unit. You want your unit to live out its full lifetime, especially if you’ve just installed a new unit. This saves money and reduces the amount of times you’ll need to invest in a new unit.
Peace of Mind for You & Your Family
Lastly, but probably most importantly, AC tune ups will give you the peace of mind that your unit is ready to keep you and your family comfortable year-round. In North Central Florida, we tend to run our air conditioning a majority of the year. Instead of feeling guilty about using your unit so much, you can feel at ease knowing your unit is being cared for by a HVAC technician. You won’t need to worry about your unit giving up when you rely on it the most!
