As the cool winter weather gives way to spring, now is the perfect time
to schedule an AC tune-up in preparation for the cooling season ahead.
Regular maintenance is the key to greater cooling efficiency and greater
appliance longevity, as well as reducing the risk of an inconvenient and
costly breakdown. Working with your trusted HVAC service in Orem to ensure
your AC is in excellent condition offers many rewards that you will continue
to enjoy throughout the summer season.
The Importance of AC Tune-Ups
AC tune-ups play a vital role in the function of your air conditioner.
Even if you’ve never had a problem with your cooling system, regular
tune-ups are the way to maintain that spotless record by cleaning and
checking the system to ensure it is in good working condition. Many of
the most common AC problems are related to poor maintenance history, meaning
that these issues could also have been prevented or minimized with regular
maintenance. Because your system will be thoroughly inspected, cleaned,
and lubricated during your tune-up, you can rest assured that it is unlikely
to break down when you need it most. Additionally, because your cooling
technician will alert you to any additional needs your system may have,
such as pending repairs or replacements, you’ll also be able to
take care of these issues before they can cause bigger and more costly
problems. Accumulated wear and tear are not only associated with a greater
risk of breakdowns, but can also drastically shorten the lifetime of your
cooling system. Regular tune-ups that address this wear and tear will
ensure that you get the full expected lifetime from your cooling appliance
that you expect, preventing the need for premature system replacement.
The Steps of an AC Tune-Up
During an AC tune-up, your cooling service will first perform a thorough inspection and cleaning
of your cooling system. Both the interior and exterior portions of the
system will be checked; next, the entire system is opened so every working
component can be cleaned and lubricated as needed. During this process,
your cooling service will also make note of any wear and tear that has
occurred, alerting you to these changes and providing recommendations
on when you should have these parts repaired or replaced. In many cases,
your service technician can perform repairs or replacements on the spot
to reduce the risk of a future breakdown and make this process even more
convenient for you. Finally, your HVAC air filter will be cleaned or replaced
and the electrical and safety systems associated with your heating and
cooling appliances are tested to ensure your air conditioner will not
only run more efficiently throughout the summer, but operate safely as well.
