It’s Time to Schedule an Air Conditioning Tune-Up
Spring is almost here!
Is your cooling system ready to work hard as the outdoor temperatures rise?
Routine maintenance helps make sure your air conditioner is ready to work as efficiently and effectively as possible when you really need it. During an AC tune-up, our technicians will fully inspect, clean, and adjust any components that need it. If we find any problems, we’ll recommend the appropriate repairs so you can plan for them.
AC Maintenance Can Save You Money
Homeowners often ask is if it is really necessary to do air conditioning maintenance every spring. “How about if we do it every two years instead?” The truth is, maintenance is not a luxury. It is a needed step to ensure that your cooling system operates as efficiently it should so you don’t spend too much to keep cool.
Here are some benefits of properly maintaining your HVAC system:
A More Reliable Cooling System: The most immediate advantage of getting annual AC maintenance done (or semi-annual, if you have a year-round heat pump), is that the equipment will be less likely to suffer a major operational failure over the summer when you need it the most. During the inspection process, our techs look at where your system has wear and tear that could lead to breakdowns. When we adjust components and clean parts that need it, that prevents further problems. All of this means you’re a lot less likely to face sudden, costly, repair needs, therefore saving money!
More Efficient: Normal wear and tear on an air conditioner creates strain on the components of the system. As your equipment tries to overcome the stress of worn parts such as the blower motor, your air conditioner may run longer than it should as it tries to cool your home. When that motor is running twice as much as it should, you can expect your energy bill will increase by at least as much. With annual maintenance, your air conditioner should be able to retain 95% of its efficiency rating throughout its whole service life.
Fewer Repairs: Nobody likes to pay for repairs – especially when you could have avoided the costly repair with much more affordable maintenance. Around 85% of the things that can go wrong with your air conditioning are preventable, thanks to maintenance inspections that catch problems early.
Avoid Early Replacement: Most HVAC systems last about 10-15 years before requiring a replacement. Regular professional maintenance helps ensure a longer life, and delays the expense of HVAC system replacement.
