The Steps of an Air Conditioner Tune-Up

AC Maintenance in Lincoln, NE

It’s almost time to turn on your air conditioner in order to keep your home cool and comfortable this summer. Before you do that, schedule an AC maintenance check. That way, you can count on your system being ready to go. Let’s talk about what you can expect during an AC tune-up.


Over the winter, your AC unit may have gotten covered with dirt and debris. This should all get cleaned away so there is proper air flow around your unit. The technician will also clean the unit’s evaporator coils and clear any clogs from the interior lines.


Your air conditioner includes a lot of moving parts. If they aren’t moving freely, this can put a lot of wear and tear on the unit. A maintenance technician will lubricate components (such as the central air fan motor) to ensure that they can move smoothly.


You can count on a reputable AC company to take a close look at all of the parts of your system during a cooling tune-up. Some of the components may be getting worn out. There could be cracks or small leaks that could compromise the efficiency of your system. It’s best to catch these issues while they’re still minor. That way, they can be repaired before they start to cause major issues like loud noises, weak airflow, high power bills or a complete AC breakdown.

The coolant level is another thing that will be checked. If your air conditioner’s coolant level is lower than it should be, you may have a small leak that needs repairing.


The professional who performs your maintenance check will turn on the system to make sure that it runs properly. That will include checking the thermostat to ensure it’s properly calibrated.
