If you’re a motor vehicle owner, you’ll know that adhering to the car manufacturer’s service and maintenance schedule is crucial for maintaining the car’s overall performance and efficiency.
Miss a service, and you’ll soon notice your once ever-so-conservative green mobile turn into a boorish gas guzzler; its once gentle purr turns into an asthmatic wheeze and before you know it you’re standing next to the highway under the watchful gaze of a swarm of ominously circling buzzards wondering why you didn’t just book that service.
Just like your trusty jalopy needs some TLC every once in awhile, so your AC also requires a tune up to ensure that it’s running at maximum efficiency. Unfortunately, we tend to take our air conditioners for granted until something goes wrong, and by that time a hefty repair bill is all but inevitable.
You may question the importance of scheduling an AC tune-up at all. In fact, your system may be in perfect working order and having it serviced would just be a waste of money, right?
The complex processes that take place “under the hood” of your AC system to ensure that you can enjoy cool, clean air necessitate scheduled maintenance from qualified professionals. With summer now in full swing, your air conditioner will be working harder than the rest of the year. Be sure to schedule a tune-up with our team for expert AC repair service Orlando FL.
Your AC technicians will check and, if necessary, attend to the following areas of your air conditioner:
The refrigerant level
Central to any air conditioning system’s functioning is the refrigerant, a volatile chemical compound that changes state in order to absorb heat. If there’s a leak anywhere in the system, you’ll lose refrigerant and eventually, the air emanating from your AC won’t be cool anymore.
To ensure that the air that you breathe in is clean and free from pollutants that can make you sick and trigger allergies, the air conditioner passes it through a filter, or filters, trapping dust and debris.
When the filters get clogged, you’ll notice a decline in airflow and the system will also be less efficient, leading to a higher electricity bill at the end of the month.
The drain pan
One of the processes that take place inside an air conditioner is condensation, which is what happens when a gas turns into a liquid. The resulting moisture is collected in a drain pan and eventually dissipated.
Sometimes, this drain can become clogged leading to a buildup of moisture which may eventually freeze and lead to problems with the functioning of the AC or water leaking onto your brand new Persian rug.
Condenser and evaporator coils
These two critical components perform similar but opposite tasks. The condenser is responsible for changing the refrigerant into a liquid, while the evaporator changes it into a gas or vapor in order to absorb heat.
Your AC technician will thoroughly check the condenser and evaporator coils for signs of blockages, cracks, and leaks.
The thermostat is the clever component that measures the ambient temperature and regulates the temperature of the air produced by the AC. During a tune-up, your technician will recalibrate the thermostat.
