Time to Schedule a Spring AC Tune-Up

Posted by
Could it be? Spring is actually here? After several weeks of freezing rain, ice and graupel, temperatures are finally expected to warm up and stay there. (We can hear your sighs of relief from here!) It’s been a very long winter, and your shorts and flip flops weren’t the only things laying dormant. Now that you can flip the switch on your thermostat back from ‘heat’ to ‘cool,’ it’s time to make sure your air conditioner is ready for the warm spring and hot summer days ahead. When we say “SPRING!” you say “TUNE-UP!” Spring! …Did you say it? Even if you aren’t the cheering type, hopefully all of that bold text will help remind you to call Elmer’s One Hour Air for a spring tune-up. Now is the perfect time to beat the summer rush. For less than $100, you can rest comfortably assured that your air conditioner is in top shape and won’t quit on you this summer. You wouldn’t skip out on an oil change for your car, so why neglect the appliance that will keep the Texas heat at bay all summer long? An average tune-up will take less than an hour and generally includes:
  • Checking/cleaning condenser coils
  • Replacing current air filter
  • Checking/tightening all electrical connections
  • Checking refrigerant levels
  • Inspection of condenser fan motor
  • Checking thermostat for proper calibration
  • A full energy audit of your HVAC system
Contact your HVAC company for more information on their tune-up packages and all that they offer. Consider this spring and summer as a long road trip. You wouldn’t leave for a long road trip without checking your tires, oil and fluids would you? The same goes for your air conditioner. Tune-ups for your air conditioner, like routine maintenance for your car, will keep you from being left in the heat due to costly equipment failure.
