Springing Into Tune-Up Season

May 5, 2022 | Blog

While you’re preparing for Memorial Day or a summer vacation, your air conditioner is getting closer to its most challenging time of year. As the temperature rises, your HVAC system will face far more strain than usual.

A springtime tune-up is the best way to ensure your cooling unit can handle the extra pressure. For Houma AC maintenance, call Trahan’s Heating & Cooling today. Alternatively, if you aren’t sure yet about the value of tune-ups, read on for more details about maintenance procedures and their benefits.

The AC Tune-Up Process

So what exactly does “tuning up” entail? Essentially, an HVAC professional will look over your entire system, testing its parts and addressing inefficiencies. To do this, the technician will complete the following tasks:

  • Lubricate any moving parts
  • Replace dirty air filters
  • Check the safety of all electrical connections
  • Clean the system’s coils
  • Assess refrigerant levels
  • Test the thermostat
  • Examine the blower motor and belt for damage

If any of these steps sound confusing, don’t be concerned. A well-trained team will understand the ins and outs of your unit, meaning you don’t need to worry about any of the aforementioned AC parts.

Perks of Air Conditioning Maintenance

Fewer Repairs and Replacements

Units that are properly cared for always fare better than those that are neglected. If you regularly check your cooling system, you can spot small issues (like too much friction between moving parts or faulty coils) and fix them quickly, preventing the need for more serious repairs down the road.

Improved Indoor Air Quality

On top of keeping your home temperate, AC units regulate your indoor air quality. Proper maintenance ensures your system’s filters and vents are blockage-free. This allows them to capture more dust and pollutants, helping you breathe easier and avoid unpleasant respiratory symptoms.

Decreased Energy Costs

During a maintenance appointment, an HVAC professional can spot flaws in the cooling process and quickly address them. This keeps your unit running as efficiently as possible, which can save you hundreds on energy bills over time.

Consequences of Air Conditioning Neglect

Unpredictable Breakdowns

It’s impossible to know if your unit is prepared for warmer weather without a tune-up. When overlooked, a minor AC repair can easily spiral into system collapse — the last thing you want at the height of spring and summer.

Costly Service Appointments

The cost of repair services will always outweigh the price of a typical AC maintenance appointment. In severe cases, you might need to replace multiple parts or even your entire system, which can drain thousands out of your bank account.

Wasted Time and Energy

The average air conditioning maintenance appointment takes 45 to 60 minutes. Meanwhile, repair services can last several hours, while a full unit replacement may take days.

No homeowner wants to waste the day supervising HVAC repairs. Scheduling tune-ups is a simple way to respect your time.
