If you own or rent a home, you know there’s a lot of upkeep involved for your house to run as it should. And just like anything else electrical or mechanical in your home, your air conditioner needs regular maintenance to keep it working properly. You may be nervous about what an air conditioner tune-up will cost, but Premier Comfort Heating and Air LLC have quality air conditioning services at fair prices so you can keep your home in pristine condition.
What is an Air Conditioning Tune-Up?
An AC inspection is for when your air conditioner has stopped working and the unit needs to be inspected for repairs or possible replacement. An air conditioner tune-up, on the other hand, is regular maintenance to make sure it’s running properly and at peak efficiency. A central air tune-up is also when technicians get a good look at your unit from top to bottom to deal with small problems before they can snowball into bigger, more costly ones.
During an air conditioner tune-up, our technicians will:
- Clean the air filter and all debris from the unit
- Flush the system condensate drain and treat with anti-algae
- Check valves, thermostats, and safety devices for proper operation
- Inspect ductwork, fan blades, wiring, and condenser coil
Our furnace and air conditioner tune-ups both include a water heater tune-up, as well.
Why an Air Conditioning Tune-Up is Necessary
Over time, all AC units gather dust, condensation, and potentially mold and algae. These build-ups lower efficiency, costing you money. In some cases, they can leak into the air that pumps through your house and can cause you and your loved ones to get sick.
Besides the house itself, an air conditioner has the highest price tag when it comes to home purchases. It’s only natural to protect that investment – along with the health of your household and wallet – by making sure it’s working properly. When your AC unit is in good shape, it doesn’t have to work extra hard to make up for inefficiencies. Getting a regular air conditioner tune-up extends and maximizes the unit’s lifespan, lowers your energy costs, and is less of a strain on the unit itself.
