It is starting to get pretty hot out there, isn’t it? It will not be long now before the thermostat climbs well over 80 and just sits there for a few months. Have you turned your air conditioner on yet? If not, you should do so soon, just to make sure that it is working well. Air conditioners need regular maintenance and upkeep, and if it has been a while since it was checked out, it is very possible that you will need an AC tune up.
If an AC unit is not tuned up correctly, it will lose efficiency and will not be able to cool your home as well as it should. In addition, if the coils are dirty or there is a lack of coolant, this also affects how well the unit will function. Every time you turn your AC on in this condition, you will be losing money because it will have to work harder and the output will not be as good. At minimum, your AC unit should get a tune up once a year, preferably before the hot weather arrives and you start using it often.
The best way to tell if your AC needs a tune up is to just turn it on. Wait a little while and feel if there is a noticeable temperature change in your house. If there is only a slight difference or no difference at all, most likely something is wrong. The next thing to do is go take a look at the unit.
You may be able to spot the problem, but if you do not see anything, it is time to bring in a pro. An experienced AC technician will inspect every part of your unit, including the coils, capacitors, coolant, and compressor to see where the problem may lie. Chances are, if no one has looked at it for a while, you will probably just need an AC tune up.
