AC Tune-Up in Chico, Durham, Paradise
Most people ignore their ACs and rarely give them a second thought until they break down. However, your AC, like most electrical or mechanical equipment, requires regular maintenance to keep it running optimally. That’s why an AC tune-up is one of the most valuable services you can invest in to help you save money in the long run. There are several benefits of maintaining your unit.
Over time, your unit can get clogged filters and become bogged down by dust particles and debris. This restricts proper air flow and strains the system. An AC tune-up will include changing the air filter as well as cleaning the outdoor unit. Removing such contaminants consequently improves efficiency.
Prolonged Useful Life
Loose connections can be a source of worry as they can lead to big problems down the road. From wiring assemblies to relays and fan blades, your system needs to be checked for loose problems to ensure it’s running properly. A tune-up helps to prolong your unit’s life by preventing breakdowns and reducing costly repair bills.
For your AC to cool effectively, refrigerant levels must be adequate and refrigerant lines should be properly insulated. You need to schedule an inspection of your system so technicians can confirm the levels and inspect the lines. Inspections avoid damage, prevent system failure and allow your AC to cool more efficiently. The risk of damage to your home can also be reduced by an inspection and cleaning of the evaporate drain to prevent the overflow of condensate.
A tune-up also ensures everything from your unit’s circuit breaker to the thermostat is running smoothly and efficiently. An AC that’s working as it should requires less energy as compared to one that’s straining. Also, a proper maintenance plan means your system won’t wear out as quickly.
