What Should Expect During an AC Tune-Up?

A/C tune-up

Are you about to schedule your AC Tune-Up appointment but need to know what to expect? Well, first of all, kudos to you for taking an essential step in the health and longevity of your unit! Secondly, being curious and unsure about what will happen during the appointment is normal.

The experts at Rainaldi Home Services are here to give you the inside scoop on what a technician does when conducting your AC tune-up.

Inspect Your Air Conditioning Unit

Conducting a thorough inspection is critical to detect any potential damage or issues with your unit. Your heating and cooling professional will remove the panel from the air conditioner so they can inspect all the parts. They will look for any holes or cracks, frayed wires, and water damage or corrosion signs. If they notice anything unusual or problematic, they will notify you and recommend the best action plan.

Check the Coolant Levels

A coolant is a fluid that runs through the interior coils of the air conditioner to lower the temperature of and dehumidify passing air. During your AC tune-up, your technician will check the coolant to make sure it is at an appropriate level. If, for whatever reason, there is not enough coolant in the coils, the unit will have to work overtime to lower the temperature.

Thermostat Settings Review

During your tune-up, your technician will ensure your thermostat is working correctly, and all settings are correct. If your thermostat is not programmed correctly, your air conditioner may not be able to heat your home correctly during the warmer months. Ask your technician during the appointment if you have any questions or concerns about your thermostat.

Clean the Coils

Cleaning the evaporator and condenser coils is essential during your AC tune-up. These coils fill with coolant when your AC is turned on, and if these coils are dirty, the air may not cool properly. This can also cause your unit to work harder than it needs to. To prevent this from happening, a professional will make sure the coils are spic and span!

Replace or Clean Air Filter

Dirty air filters can directly impact the indoor air quality at your home, affecting your family’s health and well-being. If your air filter needs to be cleaned or changed, this can be taken care of at your appointment. Your HVAC pro can change the filers and inspect your system for pollutants and contaminants such as mold and bacteria.
