What is an AC tune-up?
An A.C. tune-up is essentially an inspection and some general maintenance. Basically, our A.C. professional will conduct a full inspection of your system, taking a look at all the internal and external parts of your A.C. This means checking for anything dirty or loose in the electrical connections, or any leaks or broken pieces.
We will even replace the air filter and confirm the refrigerant levels for cooling. If your A.C. system needs more, our A.C. technician will add it for you. If there are any blockages in your system, we’ll clean them out. Other tasks include measuring the airflow, checking the start capacitor, evaluating the thermostat, and more.
Overall, our A.C. professional will test your A.C. system to ensure that everything is working properly.
How AC Tune-Ups Can Help Save Money from Repairs
If our A.C. technician does find an issue in your unit, they will be able to resolve it quickly before the hot season. This is the point of an A.C. tune-up and is one of the ways in which regular tune-up can save you money on future significant repairs.
Minor problems tend to become significant problems when they aren’t handled, which means that you’ll need to pay a lot more money to get everything repaired after the fact. A.C. problems tend to be caused mostly by neglect, which is why it’s best to get them resolved early.
Repairs vs. Maintenance
Ultimately, anything preventative will always cost less than an actual repair. All of this keeps your A.C. in good condition, so your A.C. will have a longer lifespan. This means that you will likely spend less money replacing the entire unit—especially since a unit that has been maintained properly can last up to 15 years compared to a neglected unit that may only last for eight years.
Lower Utility Bills
Keeping your unit in good condition means that it will work more efficiently. It doesn’t have to work as hard to produce cool air, so your energy bills should stay lower despite how often you’re using it.
Other Benefits of an AC Tune-Up
Beyond saving money, there are other benefits to getting your A.C. tuned regularly.
If you’re having problems with uneven cooling throughout your home, an A.C. tune-up will take care of that. Our technician will find out what is causing various hot and cold spots throughout your home. Having an A.C. system that cools evenly brings more comfort, no matter where you are in the house.
