sun-225x300It’s here! Warm weather. This week marks the first time it has been over seventy degrees all year. Bust out the swim trunks and head down to the river folks… Well, on second thought we may need to wait a few more months before we take swim. But long before we do that, we are probably turning on our air conditioners. Do yourself a favor and make sure you get your pre-season ac tune-up completed in preparation for the hot weather. Pre-season tune-ups are the best way to ensure your air conditioner doesn’t break down this summer.

Not familiar with how your AC works? Check out our new Sincerely Miller’s video that goes over what you can expect from your ac this summer.

Here are some of the highlights…Contrary to popular belief, an air conditioner is not actually moving cold air. In fact, air conditioners move heat. An AC acts just like a heat pump. It pumps heat from one area of the house to the other. The heat inside your home is being absorbed into the refrigerant. That refrigerant is then being pumped outside. Therefore, when your air conditioner is running it should be pulling in air through the coil and then pushing the warm air out of the top of the unit. Some of the main components of an air conditioner include a: compressor, coil, contactor, capacitor, fan, motor, line set, etc.
