Air Conditioner Tune-Up & Maintenance
Air conditioning is an integral aspect of modern life—one that we often take for granted until it’s no longer working. When you get home on a hot and humid summer day, you want every room in the home to be cool and comfortable, and the last thing you want to deal with is an AC that won’t turn on. At Sanks Mechanical, we’re often called to fix AC troubles that could have been avoided through regular maintenance. We offer an air conditioner tune-up service that is designed to keep you cool and comfortable, avoid unexpected problems, lower your monthly cooling bill, and extend the life of your equipment.
What to Expect with an AC Tune-Up?
An air conditioner tune-up performed by Sanks Mechanical includes a multi-point inspection and a thorough cleaning of the equipment. We’ll also calibrate your thermostat, check and top off refrigerant levels, tighten all connections and lubricate all moving parts. Our team also tailors each tune-up to the unique brand and model and adheres to those particular warranty requirements. When we’re finished, we’ll discuss the state of your AC unit with you and answer any questions that you may have.

Benefits of Servicing Your Air Conditioning System
Sanks Mechanical recommends a seasonal air conditioner tune-up, and the reason is that modern air conditioners are sophisticated machines with a lot of moving parts. Wear and tear are to be expected, and if not managed, that deterioration will undermine your system. Seasonal maintenance helps you to avoid those unexpected breakdowns in summer. It also helps to extend the life of the equipment and to ensure that it runs at peak efficiency. What many homeowners do not realize is that a tune-up helps to lower your month-to-month costs and therefore pays for itself. Another notable benefit is keeping the system clean and thereby ensuring that your AC does not reduce your indoor air quality.
Does My Air Conditioner Need a Tune Up?
Sanks Mechanical recommends scheduling your air conditioner tune-up in spring prior to the cooling season. If it’s been a while since you’ve scheduled your tune-up, your system may be giving you signs that it needs help. Call us right away at 1-215-960-4803 if you are experiencing any of the following issues:
- Moisture and Mold: Any excess moisture or even the hint of a musty odor may indicate an issue with the outdoor compressor. Higher humidity in some areas of the home is a warning sign as well.
- Weak Airflow: If you can barely feel the air coming out of your vents, you likely have a problem. Another way that week airflow can manifest itself is as warm spots in some areas of the home.
- Odd Noises: Modern air conditioners make some noise but are very quiet overall. That makes it easy to pick out those strange noises, such as screeching, buzzing, humming, rattling, or clicking.
- Warm Air: Your AC blowing warm air is perhaps the most obvious problem indication. But even if your air feels lukewarm, that is likely a sign that your system needs to be cleaned at the very least.
- Differing Temperatures from Room to Room: The temperature should be consistent throughout your home. Different room temperatures may indicate that the static pressure is too high or low.

Types of Air Conditioners We Service
Our AC technicians are highly skilled and experienced. Their continued education has prepared them to work on the latest cooling technologies used in the Greater Philadelphia area, and we work on all makes and models no matter how new or old. This includes central air conditioning systems, air-sourced, and geothermal heat pumps, and ductless mini-splits.
Central Air Conditioners
Central air conditioners are the most popular cooling choice for homes and businesses in our service area. These systems have a blower that forces cold air from the air conditioner through ductwork, and that cooled air then flows out evenly into the living spaces through vents.
Ductless Mini Splits
Ductless mini splits are essentially heat pumps but do not use ductwork and instead blow the cooled air directly into the living area. These systems are a great choice for older homes and businesses without ductwork but can also be used for additions or as a way to achieve zoned HVAC.
Routine Maintenance Ensures Safety and Efficiency
Scheduling an air conditioner tune-up each spring is the best way to avoid AC failures while keeping your month-to-month costs low and maximizing the life of your equipment. Sanks Mechanical also offers maintenance plans that help you save money while ensuring that your AC gets the maintenance it needs on schedule. As a plan member, you’ll receive a tune-up for your air conditioner in spring and a tune-up for your heating system in fall. A 1-inch fiberglass filter is included with each service, and should you ever need a repair, you’ll get priority service and a 10% discount on all parts and labor.
