Make Sure Your AC System is Ready!

outdoor-AC-unitsThe sun is taking up more of the day again as we delve deeper into spring. While mornings and nights are still pretty cold, there are some days that we have seen pretty warm temperatures, so much so that it may be prompting you to wonder if you may need your air conditioning system in the near future.

Before you kick on your cooling unit though, ask yourself whether you are sure that it is in the best condition to do its job efficiently or not. If you haven’t gotten your yearly scheduled AC maintenance in Fresno, CA, it is likely that, even if your system runs throughout the summer it will be at a higher cost to both you and your AC’s lifespan.

What is Air Conditioning Maintenance?

Air conditioning maintenance refers to a once-a-year appointment with a trained HVAC technician during which your AC gets tuned up. According to the wear and tear that your system has accured, maintenance can involve cleaning the system, tightening loose parts, replacing parts that are too worn down, checking refrigerant levels, and more.

Can’t I Just Schedule Repairs When They Are Needed?

Some people believe that maintenance isn’t a necessary service because they can simply wait until they need repairs to have their system serviced. In reality, AC maintenance, while not able to completely stop any and all repair needs, can keep them to a minimum, and keep them on the more affordable side too.

In short, maintenance helps your system run much better for much longer.

The Difference Yearly Maintenance Makes

If you are wondering about why you may want to schedule a yearly maintenance appointment, if you haven’t done so already, we are happy to answer your question. Maintenance provides a host of benefits that show up in your AC’s operation and your utility bills.

4 Benefits of a Yearly AC Tune-Up

  1. Fewer repairs: Like we touched on above, maintenance helps reduce the number and severity of repairs that your AC might need.
  2. Better efficiency: Without maintenance, your AC loses a certain amount of energy efficiency each year; with maintenance, it is able to keep a much high level of efficiency for a longer amount of time.
  3. Longer lifespan: Maintenance heads of serious issues at the pass, reducing their impact on your unit’s lifespan and helping it run for longer.
  4. Lower utility bills: With higher energy efficiency and cooling effectiveness, your AC is better able to cool your home without costing you higher amounts each month.
