Ensuring that your AC unit works as efficiently as possible is crucial to keeping your Bath, Pennsylvania, home comfortable. As the temperatures continue to rise, keeping your utility bills reasonable will help you stay within your budget. You may be able to head off a breakdown and optimize the efficiency of your AC system by scheduling a tuneup.
What Goes on During Your AC Tuneup?
When you contact your HVAC technician for a tuneup, they will start their maintenance by cleaning and inspecting all the components of your AC system. They will also inspect your outdoor unit for damaged fins and debris. This involves removing anything that is not in the unit and thoroughly cleaning it by removing the built-up dust and grime that have settled on the components. If you have tall grass, low branches, or bushes that could get caught in the unit, the technician will recommend trimming around the area to help keep your AC system in top condition.
They will then check your filter and its indoor components, thoroughly cleaning and lubricating everything while checking for needed repairs. After this, the technician will likely check your thermostat to see if there is anything reducing the airflow in your home. If needed, they will adjust the levels of refrigerant in your system.
How a Tuneup Improves Efficiency
Having a regular tuneup can help your system improve its efficiency in the following ways:
- It will improve airflow so your conditioned air flows in the proper direction.
- It will allow your condenser coil to operate properly.
- It will ensure that all parts and components are functioning at full capacity.
- It will allow your system to work less to keep the temperature consistent. Less work means less energy expended.
- It will allow your system to work more efficiently for a longer period of time.
