With spring quickly approaching, many people will be looking to flip on the air conditioning units more readily as the temperatures warm up. Just like your vehicles, ensuring your air conditioning unit is well maintained can offer a number of benefits, most importantly it can minimize the need for repairs and maximize efficiency. Getting a professional tune-up for your central air conditioning system is an important service to get, preferably just before the season begins. Today we at Jacob's Ladder Heating & Cooling would like to discuss the fundamentals of central AC tune-up.
The unit is hard at work for a greater portion of the day and with so many moving parts, as the unit operates, parts wear, lubricants dry, and the dust and debris accumulates on the exterior and interior parts throughout the year. With a professional central air conditioning tune-up service, the system will be better preserved in optimal condition, its lifespan potentially increased, and exceptional efficiency remained intact.
During the comprehensive central air conditioning tune-up service, our trained professionals inspect and evaluate the moving parts of the unit and ensures that it is operating sufficiently and the components are not showing any signs of wear or damage. In the event any parts are lacking, they are replaced. Any dust and debris is meticulously removed and lubricants added where necessary. Hardware that has become loose is tightened and electrical wiring is inspected and adjusted if needed. The exterior of the unit is also inspected and cleaned. Refrigerant levels are checked, air ducts, and the thermostat is also audited to ensure the overall performance.

You can often prevent major malfunctions by getting your air conditioning unit’s tune-up at the the start of air conditioning season. Catching the small replacement parts, added lube, and tightening of loose hardware can stop the issues before they start.
