Don’t start your summer without a scheduled air conditioner tune-up from a Stephen Hurst Pack Heating and Cooling, Inc technician. We often overlook HVAC maintenance or never give it a sense of urgency, but annual air conditioner tune-ups can help your system run well, keeping you comfortable and cool all season long. These annual services do more than just keep you comfortable, too – they are also vital for your comfort and wallet.

What do tune-ups do for my home?

  • Ensure energy efficiency – Tune-ups keep your air conditioner operating as usefully as possible, therefore keeping your home more comfortable. Air conditioners are investments that need to routinely be upkept, just like any other investment, to ensure that you are receiving full benefits from it.
  • Minimize need for repairs – These hot days in Circleville are the cruelest time for an air conditioner to stop working. With annual system maintenance, you won’t have to worry about malfunctions or maintenance in the middle of the summer heat. Our professionals can look for signs and reveal issues for your air conditioner and notify you long before any problems occur.
  • Lower expenses – When your air conditioner is running at its top performance, you could notice a decrease in your energy bills throughout the year.

What will take place during an air conditioner tune-up?

  • Refrigerant charge check – Refrigerant levels need to be just right for your air conditioner to be running accurately. Too little refrigerant can cause additional wear on your system, and too much refrigerant will affect how your air cools. Technicians will always check these levels during an air conditioner tune-up and regulate things accordingly.
  • Filter status check – Air conditioner filters should be swapped out according to the manufacturer’s recommendations, so the hygiene of your filters will always be examined during a service visit. Dirty filters make your air conditioner to work harder than it needs to and can also force the air in your home to look and feel dirty.
  • Coil check – Our experts will search so that no dust or other particles have accumulated on the outside or interior coils of your system. This dust can make air conditioners to use more energy than required and is important to be cleaned.
  • System Operating Check – Our technicians will ensure that all moving parts of the air conditioner are running cohesively together.
