Keep Your AC Running Great With a Pre-Summer Tune-Up

AC maintenance in Charlottesville, VA

A yearly tune-up can help keep your air conditioner running efficiently while saving you money on energy bills. During a tune-up, an HVAC technician from Beck Cohen can check for any worn or damaged parts and replace them before they cause damage.

Our technicians can also clean and lubricate moving parts and check for refrigerant leaks to ensure that the system is properly charged. Then, they can inspect your unit for signs of mold, mildew and other contaminants and ensure that the filters are clean.

Why A Yearly Tune-Up Is a Wise Investment

In addition to helping you save money on electricity and repairs, annual AC service will help extend the life of your unit. Regular maintenance can help prevent major breakdowns while keeping the system running at peak efficiency. It can also help ensure that your unit is up to date on all safety standards and reduce the risk of carbon monoxide leaks.

It’s important to have trained technicians check your AC’s wiring and electrical connections, look for potential gas leaks and ensure the system is properly vented. They can also check the overall condition of your system, look for signs of wear and tear and ensure that all parts are in working order.

How Long Does an AC Tune-Up Take?

The time it takes to complete the process can vary depending on the type of system you have and the complexity of the work needed. Generally, an AC tune-up can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour.

During the tune-up, our technicians will inspect and clean the condenser unit, evaporator and ducts. In some cases, more extensive work may be required, such as repairing major mechanical issues. For example, if technicians need to replace the fan motor, that could take an additional two to three hours.
