It’s stressful to think about how long the appliances in your home may last. You hope to keep your dishwasher, clothes dryer, and other appliances as long as possible, but there’s not much you can do to protect them aside from doing your best to keep them clean and in excellent condition. When it comes to an air conditioner, though, this task is a little more difficult.
Many of the major components of your air conditioner are located outside. With South Florida’s unpredictable weather patterns, storms can result in damage to your air conditioner that lowers its efficiency and leads to repairs, or worse, a premature AC system replacement.
A complete air conditioning tune-up protects your air conditioner in ways you may not expect!
Standard Steps of an AC Tune-Up
The standard steps performed with an air conditioning tune-up are more thorough than you might think. It’s not something you could do on your own. After all, do you own a manifold gauge to measure refrigerant pressures, an airflow meter, or a capacitor tester? Would you recognize whether a motor was in poor condition or if the AC system were cycling incorrectly?
That’s why it’s so important to have a professional perform your annual air conditioning maintenance. With this service, your technician brings along a checklist to ensure that your entire air conditioner gets the attention it needs. The checklist may include tasks such as…
- Testing refrigerant levels
- Checking the condensate drain
- Cleaning the outside coil
- Checking capacitors and electrical components
- Clearing debris from the blower motor
- …And much more
The Benefits of Regular Maintenance for an Air Conditioner
All of this can lead to improvements in your air conditioning system, starting with the way it works. You might notice that you feel a little bit cooler after a tune-up, and the long-term improvements are even better.
- You can save money after a tune-up once the parts are clean and adjusted.
- It’s less likely that you’ll need AC repairs any time soon after maintenance.
- If an inspection determines you do need air conditioning repair, you can schedule it sooner rather than later to avoid an AC breakdown.
- The system may last for longer overall.
You can schedule air conditioning maintenance twice a year—our recommendation for air conditioners in Florida that run nonstop. The best way to do this is to join a maintenance program.
