Trust the Air Conditioning Experts at Gold Star
The last thing you want during a hot summer is for your air conditioner to fail. It is very beneficial to get ahead of any potential problems and avoid costly issues down the road. The professional service technicians at Gold Star are committed to quality work and are eager to extend the life of your cooling system. Contact us today to schedule an AC tune up for your air conditioner and keep your system running efficiently.
Why is an AC Tune Up Important?
The modern home air conditioning system is a sophisticated machine with many moving parts. Wear and tear and a buildup of dirt is to be expected. Left unchecked, that wear will eventually develop into significant problems that are expensive to fix. The AC tune up services that we offer are designed to ensure that your cooling system operates at peak performance and lasts for many years to come.
Many homeowners are pleasantly surprised to learn that tune ups often pay for themselves because they result in lower energy bills throughout the summer. Seasonal maintenance also makes it much less likely that you will experience a sudden failure that would require a costly repair. At Gold Star, we even offer an AC maintenance plan that will help you save while keeping your AC system on schedule.
Our AC Tune Up Inspections
While we recommend scheduling AC maintenance in spring prior to the cooling season, it is never too late to schedule an appointment. We will dispatch a NATE-certified technician who will perform a multi-point inspection, clean your system, correct any wear and tear, and ensure that your air conditioner is operating within the optimal parameters. Our technician will also discuss the state of your AC system with you and answer any questions that you may have. You will also receive our industry-leading guarantee, which is that if your AC system fails during the current or upcoming cooling season, we will refund the cost of the tune up.

Protect Your AC with Regular Maintenance
Did you know that most HVAC warranties require seasonal maintenance and that companies can deny a claim if you are unable to show that the service has been performed by a licensed technician each year? The manufacturers require routine maintenance for the same reasons we recommend it; the upkeep is necessary in order to maintain peak performance and maximize the lifespan of the equipment.
The annual maintenance that we offer includes a comprehensive inspection and cleaning. We will also replace the air filter, check refrigerant levels, calibrate the thermostat, evaluate the safety controls, and identify and correct any wear and tear. We also offer a Factory Fresh AC Tune Up service, which extends our no breakdown guarantee to a full year from the date of service, and with all services, we will provide you a receipt and any other documentation that you may need for the purposes of your warranty.
Air Conditioning Systems We Service

Central AC Tune Up
Central AC systems are the most prevalent residential cooling solution in our service area. The core components of these systems are a condenser, compressor, and evaporator coil, and these systems function by cooling the air and then blowing it through ductwork and into the living spaces.
Ductless Mini Split AC Tune Up
Mini-splits are ductless systems that blow conditioned air directly into the living space. These are a popular choice for older homes that lack ductwork and for home additions. Multiple indoor units can be connected to a single outdoor unit, which makes them a popular choice for zoned setups as well.
Heat Pump AC Tune Up
A heat pump provides both cooling and heating. A mini-split is a type of heat pump, but the term heat pump generally refers to a centralized system that uses ductwork to distribute the air. Although a heat pump packages a cooling and heating solution into a single unit, it is still recommended that you schedule seasonal maintenance prior to the summer and prior to the winter.
