When Is The Best Time for an AC Tune-Up?

Air conditioner unit

April showers lead to May flowers—along with mild spring temperatures and air conditioner tune-ups here in Utah.

When the weather turns warm in Salt Lake City, cooling system checkups become as widespread as spring tulips—and with good reason. Homeowners have a two-month window of moderate spring weather to prepare for the hot days of summer.

Perhaps you have bid goodbye to your furnace for the season but are not ready to run your air conditioner. You may have switched the thermostat from heat to off, giving your equipment a little downtime and creating the perfect opportunity for an AC tune-up.

At Just Right Heating & Cooling, we are thrilled our customers take heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) maintenance seriously. We are ready to inspect, clean, and tweak your air conditioner before summer arrives, ensuring it will be in top condition to cool and dehumidify when temperatures soar outdoors. All you need to do is to schedule our visit.

Why Do I Need to Schedule AC Maintenance?

Prevention is the notion behind annual maintenance. When our experts check your air conditioner, they avert problems by changing the air filter, lubricating components, and addressing issues that could require costly repairs if ignored.

If you run your air conditioner for a month or two before having it maintained, you might worsen a defective component or accelerate a potential breakdown. A tune-up helps restore efficiency to your equipment, enabling it to cool your Sandy home without wasting energy.

If you operate your air conditioner without first maintaining it, you may needlessly spend more money on utility bills and be disappointed in your system’s performance.

Here is one way to think about preventative maintenance: You would not wait until you were halfway through a cross-country vacation trip to tune up your car. Why postpone HVAC maintenance to mid-summer?

What Does an AC Tune-Up Include?

ENERGY STAR® recommends cleaning evaporator and condenser coils, checking the refrigerant level, and adjusting and cleaning blower components. It also says a checkup should include lubricating moving parts and inspecting the condensate drain, thermostat setting, and electrical connections.

Our Just Right Heating & Cooling technicians include all those tasks and more. We offer a 25-point checkup that helps you to maintain your manufacturer’s warranty.

We also inspect your ductwork, power solenoid, condenser fan, safety controls, and test motor amperage, among other tasks. We give your cooling system a thorough checkup.
