When to Schedule An AC Tune-Up & Our Expert Process

Is your home’s air conditioner ready for the heat of summer?

At Frontline Comfort, we understand the importance of timely maintenance to enhance your home comfort and keep your HVAC system running smoothly, and we are committed to doing it well the FIRST time.

In this guide, we’ll explore everything you need to know about AC tune-ups, including when to schedule them (hint: the weather should be 70+ degrees!) and our meticulous process to keep your air conditioner running cool all summer-long.

When to Schedule Your AC Tune-Up

Knowing when to schedule your AC tune-up is crucial to maximize home comfort, optimize performance and avoid unexpected breakdowns during the hottest months of the year. We recommend scheduling your tune-up well before the peak of summer to beat the rush and ensure your system is ready to handle the heat.

HOWEVER, you need to make sure the daily temperature is reliably forecasted to be above 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

By servicing your air conditioner before the summer months, you can address any issues early on and prevent potential breakdowns when you need your cooling system the most. But, if you schedule too early, you risk damaging your system. Refrigerant may accumulate in your compressor, a result of liquid migration where your refrigerant seeks the coldest area in your system. Bottom line – not good!

So, find that spring sweet spot and schedule your tune-up in advance to allow our team at Frontline Comfort to provide prompt service and address any concerns you may have.

Cleaning and Maintenance: We’ll clean and lubricate key components of your air conditioner to ensure smooth operation and prevent dirt, debris, or buildup from affecting efficiency. This includes cleaning the condenser and evaporator coils, replacing or cleaning filters, and inspecting ductwork for any signs of damage or leaks.

System Testing: After completing the necessary maintenance tasks, we’ll conduct thorough system testing to verify that your air conditioner is operating at peak performance. This includes checking thermostat settings, airflow, temperature differentials, and overall system functionality to ensure everything is working as it should.
