There are a lot of fun activities to do in Minneapolis in the summer. However, the weather can be very warm. That is why having a working air conditioner in your home is important. Making sure your air conditioner works starts with a tune-up. There are many parts to your air conditioner that will have to be checked, which is why it is so important to have a tune-up. When your HVAC technician will have to look at many items in three main parts of your air conditioner.
Your air conditioner has two main units that work together to cool your home. The indoor unit is in charge of cooling and distributing the air. It all starts with the thermostat and filters. Checking the thermostat is important to make sure your air conditioner is working properly. Besides the thermostat and filter, the inside unit also has vents, coils, drains, and many chambers that hold what you need to keep cool. Some are drained and cleaned to make sure they will keep working throughout the summer months.
The outside unit cycles out hot air from your home and brings in outside air to be cooled. Weather can beat up the unit, so it will need to be cleaned. The technicians will also test the unit to make sure it is working properly and connected without damage. Because the weather can range from just snow to fast winds, it may be necessary to clean out the outdoor unit with water.
Every air conditioner uses electricity to run and keep your home cool. The wiring in your home will need to be checked and tested to keep you safe while using your air conditioner. In some cases, wiring can break, disconnect, or burn to make your air conditioner no longer effective. We will also measure the voltage and amperage to make sure it is the right amount to cool your home without breaking the A/C.
