Anyone who lives in the Tampa, Florida area knows how important it is to have a reliable air-conditioning system. The last thing you want to experience on a blistering hot summer day is warm air blasting from your AC vents. A yearly AC tune-up performed by the expert team at Sun Air Services can keep your AC in top shape.
Air-conditioning systems are complex machines that require regular maintenance to perform at top efficiency. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, neglecting routine maintenance can reduce AC performance and lead to higher energy bills. An annual tune-up performed by skilled professionals can prevent AC breakdowns and extend your system’s lifespan.
AC tune-ups might vary by the model, age, and size of your unit. Typically, an AC tune-up includes the inspection, cleaning, repair, and any necessary replacement of the items below.
Dirty AC filters block airflow and reduce performance. A clogged filter can cause the AC unit to work too hard and burnout. When a technician replaces a dirty filter, it can lower energy consumption by up to 15% and improve your air quality.
AC units have internal evaporator and condenser coils. When the coils become dirty, it reduces their ability to promote airflow and absorb heat. An AC service professional will clean coils thoroughly.
Coils have fins that can become bent easily, blocking air from circulating through the coils. A technician will repair damaged fins and restore airflow.
A professional AC technician can detect and fix system leaks and ensure that it has the correct refrigerant level for peak performance.
Clogged drains can reduce the AC from controlling humidity. A technician will drain all condensate channels of excessive liquid.
A system with a fluid leak or built-up dirt and grime can impact electrical connections. During a tune-up, a technician will test and tighten electrical terminals.
A technician will calibrate your home’s thermostat to ensure it’s functioning correctly.
Also, tune-ups include lubricating the machinery, cleaning blower parts, inspecting ductwork, and measuring airflow.
In the Tampa area, home and business owners should schedule an AC tune-up twice a year. Enrolling in an annual air conditioning maintenance plan is the most affordable way to ensure that your AC system always is running at peak performance.
