Trust the Air Conditioning Professionals at Christian
It is essential to keep your home cool and comfortable during the hot summer months. It is very important to get ahead of any potential problems with your AC unit since the last thing you want during a hot summer is for your air conditioner to fail. This can end up being both very uncomfortable, as well as costly. At Christian, our professional AC tune up service technicians are committed to quality work and are well experienced in extending the life of your cooling system. Contact us today to schedule an AC tune up for your air conditioner and keep your system running smoothly through the warm summer months.
What is an AC Tune Up Service?
An AC tune up performed by one of our NATE-certified technicians begins with a multipoint inspection of both the indoor and outdoor units. During this process, our technician will clean your equipment, including the evaporator coils, condensing coil, compressor, and fan. We will lubricate and calibrate all moving parts, check the refrigerant level, and replace all air filters. Our technician will inspect all electrical components and connections, check the condensate drain, and calibrate your thermostat. We will then start the system and ensure that everything is in working order prior to discussing the status of your air conditioning system with you and answering any questions that you may have.
Why Do I Need an AC Tune Up?
One excellent reason to schedule a seasonal AC tune up is that most HVAC warranties require it. Modern air conditioners are sophisticated systems with many moving parts, and that means that wear and tear and an accumulation of dust are inevitable. Having your system cleaned and any wear and tear corrected will help maximize the life of your equipment and thus lower the total cost of ownership. An AC that does not receive this service will not run as efficiently and that inefficiency will be exacerbated over time. When you do schedule routine maintenance prior to the cooling season, your system will run at peak efficiency and will therefore cost you less on a month-to-month basis as well.
The AC is Making Odd Sounds
While some AC noise is to be expected, certain sounds are cause for concern. Schedule an inspection if you hear bangs, buzzing or whistling, or hear humming or raspy noises coming from the outside unit.
An Increase in Your Utility Bills
An AC tune up often pays for itself over the course of a summer and can reduce monthly bills by upward of 15%. With no maintenance, an AC system will get more expensive to run with each passing year.
Your AC is Not Cooling Properly
An AC that blows warm air or no air at all is an obvious problem. But dirty coils and filters can cause your AC to work harder than it should and result in uneven heating, which is when you have hot spots.
The AC is Giving Off a Bad Odor
In the worst case, a bad smell from your AC can mean that the wiring needs to be replaced. It may also mean that a filter got wet, there is mold accumulation, or an animal has died in the system.
Water Leaking from the AC Unit
There are two main reasons your AC may leak: the condensate drain has clogged, or the refrigerant supply has been compromised. Both issues are serious and require immediate attention.
The AC Has a Weak Air Flow
Poor airflow may indicate that you have duct leakage or a duct blockage. The problem may be with the blower itself, or it may just be that you need to replace the HVAC air filter with a new one.
