Get a Tune-up on Your Air Conditioning Unit

As we slowly move into the warmer months of the year, many people start to wonder, “Do I need an air-conditioning tune up?” This is a common question that every air conditioning mechanic has heard before, and we’re here to tell you that yes, you do need a tune up to ensure your AC unit is ready for the summer.

Here are some of the reasons why you need an AC tune up:

  • Purchasing AC is a big investment. If you get frequent tune ups for your AC, you can significantly extend its useful life
  • Having an AC will help you stay safer and more comfortable through the scorching summer heat in July and August. An AC tune up can make these months easier for you and your family
  • Rising global temperatures means that electricity costs are also increasing. An efficient AC can help you save on your energy bills for years to come

The Benefits of an AC Tune Up

An AC tune up is a cost effective way to get your AC to run at full efficiency. All you need to do is make an AC service call to an air conditioning mechanic and you’ll see a reduction in your monthly electricity bill go down by tenfold.

Annual AC tune ups can also save you from larger, more costly maintenance. For example, if you place an AC service call, they can easily fix a minor issue, like a clogged AC condensate. However, if you delay an AC service call, the problem can multiply into several other problems like:

  • Mold growth
  • Damaged sheetrock
  • Corrosion of the HVAC system

These problems are more time consuming and much harder to fix, and they will cost you a lot more money to fix if the unit was regularly maintained. The next time you suspect a small issue with your AC, don’t hesitate to call an air conditioner mechanic.

How Often Should I Get a Tune Up?

Air conditioning systems are sophisticated machines capable of providing years of reliable service. However, they can only do their job effectively if they are kept in the best possible condition. Most AC manufacturers recommend that you get your AC and heating units tuned up annually.

Not only can you get the maximum performance out of your AC, with a tune up you will see reduced energy bills. As part of their warranty program, some manufacturers inspect your AC annually. Some AC tune up companies in Toronto can offer 24 point AC inspections. A detailed AC tune up in Toronto should include:

  • Inspecting the blower and its components
  • Examining the voltage and the amperage of the AC
  • Verifying refrigerant levels
  • Lubricating all mechanical parts
  • Checking the operational temperatures
  • Inspecting electrical connections
  • Calibrating the thermostat
  • Inspecting the drain pump
  • Inspecting the drain pan

Regular AC tune ups have many short-term and long-term benefits. As we head into summer, especially now that we will be spending more time at home, booking an AC tune up should be on the top of your to-do list.

When my furnace broke down last winter, we were without heat for two weeks while the HVAC company sourced the parts from the US. I wanted to install a gas fireplace insert to replace my existing gas log set and to act as a backup heat source (e.g. furnace breaks down again, no power). I had a number of questions about the various gas fireplace inserts (e.g. size and fit in my old fireplace) and I contacted several HVAC companies.

I found that Brian from Cozy Comfort Plus to be the most helpful and he also gave me the best price. I was home at the time and I saw that the Cozy team did a great job installing the gas fireplace insert (e.g., assembling and fitting the insert, bending and capping the chimney, etc.). If you are looking for a gas fireplace insert, I would highly recommend that you give Brian a call.

I had the most fabulous experience with Cozy Comfort Plus! Brian was very responsive for my first outreach all the way through to the completion of my beautiful fireplace! I live in a condo and as such, things are not straightforward when it comes to having work completed. There were a few extra hoops to jump through but Brian and his team were very diligent in ensuring that all the fittings were correct. I was so happy with my experience that I had them replace my furnace and add a smart home thermometer as well! I would highly recommend Brian and his team for their knowledge, skill and excellent customer service!
