Why You Should Schedule An End Of Season AC Tune-Up
October, 10th, 2016
Summer has brought with it beautiful sunny days and high temperatures, causing homeowners across America to turn to their air conditioners for help cooling down. All this added usage will have had an effect on your AC system , causing a little bit of wear and tear along the way.
Once you reach the end of the season, it’s important to schedule a maintenance inspection with our air conditioning technician. This checkup will help to ensure that your system is still working efficiently, it doesn’t need any repairs, and everything is ready for the next summer. We’ve put together a list of top reasons why you should schedule an end of season AC tune-up.
Save Some Money
Between the transition from summer to fall, the weather can be unpredictable. We may get cold winds and rain one day, then warm sunshine the next. It’s not uncommon for us to get a heatwave during the middle of fall, so you need to make sure that your air conditioner is still in tip top condition. If your AC unit isn’t running to its full potential, it will run for longer and use more energy, leading to higher energy bills.
Get your AC Fixed
When your air conditioner has been working hard for an entire season, there’s always a chance that some components have suffered a little. A maintenance check carried out by our experienced AC technicians will ensure that your air conditioner is working well. The technician will thoroughly inspect your system, and if there are any issues, they’ll quickly diagnose them and repair them
Prepare for Next Summer
There’s nothing wrong with being well prepared. Getting it out of the way now means you won’t have to think about it later on. When the heat picks up again towards the end of spring, you can turn on your air conditioner and know that it’s not going to let you down.
Prolong The Life of Your AC
Maintenance checks don’t just find possible weak spots that need repair and get your AC ready for next summer; they also help to prolong the life of your system. Air conditioners last between 8 – 10 years, before some of it’s main components might need replacing. So if you want to get the most out of your AC unit, schedule a tune-up.
Improve Its Performance
If you want your air conditioner to work to the best of its ability, then having a maintenance check is essential. Having an end of season tune-up will make your AC as good as new, improving its overall performance.
A well-maintained air conditioning system is a lot more efficient. Not only will it save you money, but you’re also doing your bit for the environment.
Avoid Costly Repairs or Replacement
When something goes wrong with your air conditioner, it’s not always noticeable until the problem has grown and your system might have a major breakdown. A maintenance check could catch the issue before it grows into something larger. If possible repairs go unnoticed, they can lead to costlier repairs or even requiring replacement.
Remove Allergens from Your Home
If you suffer from allergies or asthma, a tune-up, duct cleaning and air-filter cleaning will help to remove some of the dust from the air flow. Both the inside and outside of your AC will be cleaned during the checkup. Even if you don’t suffer from asthma or allergies, fresh air is better than dirty air!
When your air conditioner has had a check-up, it will be left working as well as it did when you first bought it. An AC that is performing to the best of its ability can remove the humidity in the house and make your home feel extra cool during the summer.
Get Professional Advice
If your air conditioner is beginning to age, a professional technician can tell you how efficient your AC is and whether it’s worth running. An inefficient system can cost you a lot more than your air conditioner is giving you.
