Importance of Annual AC Tune-Up and Maintenance
The best piece of advice we can give homeowners is to regularly maintain all their home comfort systems. Too often, we get called for air conditioner repair and after assessing the system, we can see the problem was a result of neglecting regular AC maintenance. Running a system season after season (or even just one year) without scheduling an AC tune-up and maintenance can strain the unit, decrease efficiency and cause a complete system breakdown.
Air conditioners are complex machines and they need regular service to ensure they’re properly operating. Over the course of the year, the unit can become dirty and filled with debris. Small insects and rodents can get into the wiring and cause electrical shorts. Any of these scenarios can cause significant problems with the internal mechanics—straining the system or rendering it inoperable. During an annual AC tune-up and maintenance visit, a certified technician will visually inspect the whole unit and clean out key components to ensure proper operation.
A certified air conditioner technician also has the ability to make small adjustments that can result in a significant increase in the unit’s efficiency. When your cooling system is operating at peak efficiency, you’ll notice a more consistent temperature throughout the home and can expect savings on your monthly energy bills.
The biggest benefit of scheduling an AC tune-up and maintenance is that is can prevent a breakdown during the summer. Too often, homeowners wait until the first hot day to turn on their air conditioner, only to discover something is wrong. By scheduling service before the start of the hot weather, a technician can check the system, make sure everything is working and correct any small problems before they turn into an expensive repair.
