5 Reasons to Schedule an AC Check-up Now
As HVAC experts, we get it — you want to get the most from your air conditioning system during the summer, and you want to have peace of mind that it’s going to continue running smoothly for the foreseeable future. That’s why we recommend scheduling regular check-ups for your AC system.
An AC check-up is a thorough inspection and cleaning of your air conditioning system to ensure it’s running safely, smoothly, and efficiently. These check-ups offer more benefits than you may think, including lower utility bills and longer lasting AC equipment.
In case you haven’t yet scheduled AC maintenance this year, here are five reasons you should schedule a tune-up as soon as possible.
Prevent Unexpected Breakdowns
Would you rather take care of a little air conditioning maintenance now or a major AC problem later on in the heat of summer? As the old adage puts it, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Scheduling at least one AC check-up every year helps you nip smaller issues in the bud before they turn into surprise breakdowns.
Boost the Efficiency of Your AC System
During your AC check-up, your HVAC specialist will make minor adjustments to your air conditioner as needed to keep it running at peak efficiency — whether that’s tightening electrical connections, lubricating moving parts, or changing the air filter.
Keep Those Utility Bills Down
Poorly maintained air conditioners have to work harder to produce the same amount of home comfort, driving up your utility bills. With regular AC check-ups, you’ll have a peak performing, energy efficient air conditioner — and lower utility bills to boot.
Increase Overall Home Comfort
You wouldn’t expect your car to run at its best without scheduling regular oil changes for it, would you? The same logic applies to your air conditioning system. Simply put, a well maintained air conditioner does a better job of keeping your whole home comfortable.
Make Your AC Equipment Last Longer
As you can imagine, scheduling yearly preventative maintenance allows you to keep your air conditioning equipment running better for longer. Rather than letting an unexpected breakdown force you to replace your AC equipment prematurely, regular check-ups help you make the most of your air conditioning investment.
