Is an Air Conditioning Tune-Up on Your To-Do List?

Monday, June 08, 2015

You tune up your vehicle to keep it running, but what about your air conditioning unit? Just like your car or any other mechanical component, your air conditioner needs a tune up to keep it working at its best. Because the air conditioning in your Edmonton home will be under pressure to run daily in the summer, it is best to have it checked by a professional in the spring. You do not have to worry about a broken AC unit ruining your summer!

Why Air Conditioning Maintenance in Edmonton is Important

The worst thing you can do for your home's comfort systems is turn them on full force after sitting dormant all winter. A quick tune-up can positively impact your AC unit's performance, lower energy costs and of course, keep you cool all summer long.

If you read your owner's manual, you will see that your air conditioner's manufacturer recommends seasonal tune-ups - and some may even require them as part of their manufacturer warranty. There are also other reasons to ensure air conditioning maintenance in Edmonton  before you start using your unit this summer, including:

  • Catching Small Problems - Small problems are easily caught during a seasonal tune-up. By catching these issues early, you can limit the chances of a bigger, costlier repair job in the future.
  • Improved Efficiency - During an AC tune-up, your technician will make sure the unit is operating at maximum efficiency, which means you can look forward to lower utility bills this summer.
  • Clean Air - As part of the seasonal tune-up service, your air conditioner's filter will be replaced. That means cleaner indoor air for you and your loved ones.
  • Electrical Inspection - If your air conditioner is working too hard, it could overheat your electrical relays. Once these overheat, they can cause your air conditioner's fan or motor to fail, and that is a costly replacement. During a tune-up, these items are inspected so that you can avoid expenses for repair work.
