Although we still have some cool days ahead, it’s only a matter of time before spring brings warmer weather. However, before you turn on your AC for the first time this season, ask yourself, “Has my unit been tuned up in the last year?” Routine AC tune-ups are essential to keeping your unit in good working order throughout its lifecycle.
During a tune-up, your HVAC technician will fully inspect your equipment and will clean, lubricate and adjust your system as needed. They will also inform you of any repairs that need to be taken care of. Managing these repairs right away could help you avoid emergencies down the road. We’ve listed a few other benefits to regular AC tune-ups below.
If you want your AC to run well over its entire lifespan, then regular inspections and upkeep are essential. One of the leading reasons for system failure is lack of maintenance. A yearly appointment will help ensure a functioning AC system for years to come. Also, it could potentially extend the life of your unit.
AC tune-ups are not just about getting recommendations for repairs. When HVAC professionals perform AC maintenance, they clean your cooling coils, fan blades, and various other components of your air conditioner. All of this helps your system cool your indoor air more efficiently, because it prevents your system from working too hard.
Observing dirt and debris in and around your air conditioner is relatively normal. However, as particles accumulate inside the components of your unit, airflow is decreased. In addition, these particles can get released into your home, degrading your air quality. This dirt and debris will be cleaned out during your AC tune-up.
