Q: How often should I tune up my Air Conditioning System?
A: To get peak efficiency from your Air Conditioning Systems they should be tuned up annually. Don’t forget every AC system has three basic components an indoor coil (evaporator), an outdoor coil (condenser) and a blower. All three components rely on each other to efficiently cool your home. A dirty of faulty air filter can cause high resistance on the blower, or allow dust to collect on the blower wheel and plug the indoor coil. The outdoor unit is also exposed to dust, leaves, and pollen that must be removed in order to run properly. Annual maintenance will attend to those issues and ensure your Ac system gives you years of trouble free comfort.
