Your AC is one of those systems that often gets overlooked until it stops working. Doing an annual AC tune-up can help keep your system running smoothly and efficiently, helping to prevent more costly repairs down the road. Below, we’ll explain what an AC tune-up involves.

Checking the Refrigerant

The refrigerant is the lifeblood of your AC system and should be checked annually. Our technicians will check for proper levels to ensure there are no leaks or signs of line damage. They will also check to ensure that your AC operates within the manufacturer’s specifications.

Inspecting the Air Filters

The air filters are an important component of any AC system. They help to keep the air clean and free of dust and other airborne particles, but they can become clogged over time. An HVAC technician will check your air filters to ensure they are clean and not clogged as well as advise when you should be changing them out.

Cleaning the Evaporator and Condenser Coils

A technician will inspect your AC system’s evaporator and condenser coils and clean them if needed. This is important to ensure the coils are free of dust, dirt, and other debris that can impede their cooling capacity.

Testing Electrical Connections

The technician will also check all the electrical connections throughout your AC system to be certain they are secure and not damaged. Damaged electrical connections can lead to a system breakdown, so it’s important to have them tested and inspected. They can also be a potential fire hazard.

Inspecting the Ductwork

The ductwork of your AC system is important if you want your unit to run efficiently. Our technicians will inspect the ductwork for any signs of leaking or damage, and they will also check to make sure it is properly sealed. Leaking ductwork can reduce the efficiency of your system and cause higher energy bills, so it’s important to have it inspected annually.
