What is Involved in an AC Tune-Up?

  • Checking the thermostat to ensure proper calibration and functionality
  • Cleaning or replacing the air filter (a clogged air filter can cause air conditioner malfunction)
  • Inspection of the central motor
  • Inspection of the condensate drain and coils 
  • Lubrication of all components
  • Checking refrigerant to ensure proper pressure
  • Determining the functionality of fan blade, valves & ductwork
  • Examine compressors 
  • Measure temperatures of supply and return 

These points and many more are involved in a full and thorough AC tune-up, and malfunction in any one of these areas can cause catastrophic problems during the heat of Summer. 

Why a Tune-Up is Necessary

Replacement of an AC unit can run several thousand dollars for the average Orange County homeowner, and regular tune-ups can help avoid a full HVAC overhaul. 

During our 32-point tune-up inspection, we look at not only the physical components of your AC unit but for the functionality as well.

Our technicians search for energy leaks and areas of energy loss – which ultimately cost money for the household. Further, we inspect units individually to uncover any major safety issues, including compromised wiring or air ducts. 

Overall, a regular AC tune-up can offer peace of mind in the searing heat of the summer – a time when temperatures easily reach into the triple-digits and can be extremely dangerous for anyone susceptible to extreme heat.
