Reasons to Tune Up Your HVAC System

July 28, 2020

If you didn’t have your air conditioner tuned-up before summer started, it’s not too late. Regular maintenance and HVAC system tune-ups help to optimize your system’s performance. Here’s how you can save money by scheduling regular maintenance on your HVAC system.

No HVAC System Leaks

When an air conditioning system is leaking refrigerant, it won’t produce cold air As the refrigerant continues to seep out, the HVAC equipment will work harder to regulate temperatures in a home, and this will increase the energy costs.

Besides an increased energy bill, a leak can also strain an air conditioning system. Continued stress will weaken worn parts causing repairs that otherwise wouldn’t be needed to key components.

No Corrosion

After winter ends, there may be moisture on the wires that lead to your air conditioner. Lingering moisture is a problem for some air conditioning components because it can cause corrosion. If a portion of a wire or part of a terminal corrodes, your air conditioner will short, causing it to turn and off without the thermostat calling for a temperature change.

Corrosion is another problem that can make an AC system consume more energy during basic cooling cycles. If you schedule regular maintenance for your system, a technician will inspect the electrical system thoroughly for signs of corrosion.

No Dirt and Debris

In order to prevent clogs, you must keep dirt and debris out of your air conditioning system. Large debris can impede the outdoor condensing unit and regular dust and dirt will affect all of key components.

All debris can harm the air conditioning system and everyone in your home. It affects the equipment by decreasing its performance, and it harms residents by reducing the air quality.
