Customers ask us all the time what happens during a tune-up. An air conditioning tune-up is a full inspection and analysis of your cooling system along with the cleaning of accessible parts. The cost of scheduling regular maintenance will easily pay for itself by extending the life of your air conditioning system and breakdowns that are avoided. Below is a list of what we do during a tune-up and what makes Gentry AC different than the rest.
Inspect all electrical components
Capacitors, fan motors, compressors, thermostats and circuit boards. The key to checking these items is that we can see signs of weakness that can cause a break down during the hottest days of the year. When we find these issues, we inform of the issue and their options and then let them decide to leave the part as is or replace it to prevent the breakdown.
A system that is low on refrigerant will start developing other directly related issues. Checking your refrigerant annually helps catch a leak before it becomes a larger problem
Have you ever seen water dripping from a pipe on the side of your house? That typically means that your condensate drain is clogged. We check for this and clear any clogs if present.
A dirty air filter can cause issues all down the line of your system. We make sure that yours is clean and ready to go
We thoroughly wash the outdoor condenser coils. Keeping these clean helps your AC system run at peak efficiency
Ductwork and other items
We visually inspect your ductwork and other items to identify and air leakage or efficiency issues.
We only use knowledgeable “Service Technicians” with several years of experience that can, not only, maintain your AC units, but identify any potential issues that may arise. Some companies use “Maintenance Technicians” that have limited knowledge of AC systems and perform only basic functions.
