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.

I requested info online from a few places I found on the internet. Cozy Comfort was the most responsive, not just with the initial info request, but with back-and-forth calls, emails and a site visit. I wanted to convert my wood fireplace to gas, and Brian guided my through the whole process. He explained the type of unit I needed (gas insert), told me the different brands and models that would fit my fireplace opening, and explained the pros and cons of each.

Within a week of my first call, my new gas insert was installed, and a week after that, the stone mantle and hearth were in. The installers laid plastic to protect our flooring, maintained social distance, and were kind to my curious cat and dog. They walked me through how to use the fireplace once the gas insert unit was in. Also, my original fireplace was about 8 inches off-centre (wall is only 13’, so it was noticeable), and Cozy Comfort centred the new one - it looks stunning.

Thanks for everything, Cozy Comfort! I can’t wait for winter 😄

I can't stress enough how happy & pleased we are with our Napoleon BBQ. From the moment we walked into the showroom, we were met with a very friendly greeting.

My wife and I were so impressed with the calm, sincere and gracious demeanor of Brian. He answered all our questions, gave us his thoughts and professional opinions on everything inquired about.

We will definitely continue our business with Brian and the entire team at Cozy Comfort Plus.

Cozy Comfort Plus Inc. installed a new high efficiency furnace in our house two years ago and it has been operating perfectly ever since. Their service was straight forward, reasonably priced and good value for money. They even walked us through the complicated rebate program that was hard to understand without being involved in the industry.

I would highly recommend them for your next heating and cooling needs.
