As summertime approaches, you expect your air conditioner to keep your home nice and cool. You probably assume that as long as your air conditioner is blowing out cold air that it is working fine. This may not be the case. You have to tune up your air conditioner to make sure it stays in top working condition.
Over 50 percent of people do not get their air conditioner tuned up at all. Your air conditioner will collect dirt and dust and is subjected to wear and tear. It also has a lot of idle time during the winter months. You should be aware of the signs that your air conditioner needs to get a tune up. Keeping it tuned up will ensure that it will stay in working condition for years to come.
Higher Electric Bill
Always keep an eye on the amount of your electric bill. If you notice your bill start to become higher, and you are using the same amount of electricity, then you may have a problem with your air conditioner. Your air conditioner will begin to use more energy if it is not working properly.
When your air conditioner is working properly, it will start right up with no loud noises. If you notice noises that you haven’t heard before, then it may be time to get a tune up. The unit may start to make loud clanking and banging noises.
Change In Air
If there is no air or less air than usual coming out of the unit, then you may need to get it checked out. There are a number of reasons why the air in the unit is not coming out properly. The filters could be clogged with dust or your fan may be working improperly.
It’s never been tuned up
If you have had your air conditioner for a year or more, you need a tune up. Air conditioners need to be tuned up at least once a year. If you live in a warmer climate where you use it more often, then you should get it tuned up more frequently.
