It Isn’t Too Late To Get an AC Tune-Up

AC-unitThis last weekend was…hot. Plain and simple. And if you hadn’t been using your AC before, you certainly are now. Maybe the heatwave took you by surprise though and you realize now that your AC hasn’t gotten its yearly tune-up. It isn’t too late to get that service taken care of!

When it comes to air conditioning service in Fresno, CA you need to make sure you work with a professional team like ours. Our team can offer you expert maintenance for your air conditioning system, even if it is a little later than usual. After all, your system can still benefit from late maintenance.

Why you should never skip maintenance

It can be tempting to realize that you are late to schedule your maintenance appointment and to just say, “Oh well will try again next year.” We would strongly advise against doing this. While late maintenance still benefits your system, skipping maintenance is going to create a whole host of problems that you would likely rather avoid.

Think of it this way: Any benefit that late maintenance would offer has an equal consequence if maintenance is skipped. For example, while late maintenance improves efficiency, skipped maintenance causes your efficiency level to drop by 5%. Skipping your tune-up will never pay off.

What regular tune-ups can do for you

If skipping maintenance is a bad idea, then getting regular tune-ups has to have some noticeable perks, right? You are correct! There are some great benefits attached to scheduling maintenance on a regular basis each year. These include:

  • Better energy efficiency: We start here because we’ve already touched on this one. As we mentioned, if you skip a tune-up your system will likely lose some of its energy efficiency. This means more expensive bills each month. You can avoid this with regular maintenance because a tune-up is going to help your AC operate with the same level of efficiency that it has since the beginning.
  • Improved cooling: Maintenance involves the process of cleaning any build-up of dust and debris out of your system, tightening loose parts, and optimizing other parts of your air conditioner. This all comes together to help improve the operation of your AC. In short, maintenance helps your AC cool things off more effectively.
  • Reduced risk of repairs: You want to keep repair needs to a minimum over the course of your system’s lifespan. Regular maintenance is going to help you do just that. By addressing a variety of small problems while they are small it prevents them from escalating into full-blown repair needs.
  • Peace of mind: Last but certainly not least, regular maintenance is going to help you feel more confident about staying comfortable this summer. This is especially important because we are likely in for a pretty hot one. When you schedule maintenance each year it means that you can rest assured that your house is properly cooled each day without creating excessive costs.

If you haven’t gotten your annual maintenance check done yet, it isn’t too late! Come to our team to get your tune-up so you can stay cool this summer.
