Thanks to YouTube tutorials it’s become a lot easier to do things around the house on your own. There are tutorials for pretty much everything and everyone out there, from laying your own tile to building an amazing Minecraft realm. However, there are some things you should leave to the experts, like air conditioner service.
Your annual maintenance tune-up from the certified technicians at Andrew DiPietro’s Climate Zone will keep your system running better, longer. There are some things you shouldn’t have to worry about and your air conditioner maintenance is one of them. A few things that the pros will be checking when you get your air conditioner tuned-up are:
- Check for the proper refrigerant charge. Your system requires the proper amount of refrigerant to run efficiently. If your system is losing refrigerant, that indicates a leak – which we are able to repair. An air conditioner low on refrigerant runs harder and longer. Getting any issue addressed and having your unit properly charged will save you money on your utility bill and wear and tear on your system.
- Clean evaporator coils. The evaporator coils provide both cooling and dehumidification. When a system’s evaporator coils are dirty, your air conditioner’s performance is significantly diminished. Since these coils are usually wet, contaminants that are moving through your system such as dust and pollen tend to stick to them. Dirty coils use more energy and the ability to cool your home is reduced.
- Inspect electrical connections. As with any appliance, there is the possibility of wires, connectors and screws coming loose. During your tune-up we will check for any problems that could damage your system’s electrical components.
- Check your filter. Checking and changing your filter is something you can and should be doing. A dirty air filter affects your home’s air quality and the efficiency of your system. Depending on your home, your filter should be changed every month or two.
These are just a few of the things our professionals will be looking at during your annual maintenance check. It’s a chance for our technicians to catch and repair any small issues before they become big problems. Your air conditioner is a big investment and we want to keep that investment running reliably and efficiently.
