Spring is coming! It’s the season of tulips and Easter Bunnies, baby robins and…air conditioner tune-ups? That’s right, actually. Spring is a great time to get your air conditioner tuned up for the coming warm season. That way, you’ll be able to address any problems you find and make sure your A/C unit is ready to run all summer long.
Still not convinced? Did you know that an A/C tune-up can save you money? It actually does this in a couple of ways. First, cleaning out your air conditioner is part of the tune-up process. Removing the dust, dirt, and grime that can collect on your A/C means that it’s easier for the unit to do its job. It doesn’t have to work as hard, so it’s not using as much energy. You only have to pay for the energy you use, so your bills should be lower.
Tuning up your A/C can also save you money because it keeps your air conditioner running longer. Since the unit isn’t working as hard, it’s not experiencing as much wear and tear. This adds up to more years of functionality, so you won’t have to pay to replace it nearly as often.
If you want to save money, call us this spring to tune up your A/C in the following situations:
- You don’t know when it was last tuned up. If you did it, you’ve forgotten. Or maybe you’re in a new-to-you home and you don’t have maintenance records for the past few years. Either way, it’s better to tune it up than to be sorry!
- It’s been a year since your last tune-up. If you had us tune up your A/C last spring, it’s time to do it again. This should be yearly maintenance if you’re going to get the most out of your unit.
- You remember having problems with your air conditioner last summer. If it had issues, it’s time to have a professional make sure everything is working just the way it should. It’s also time to address those issues so they don’t cause the unit to fail entirely this summer.
- You have an older air conditioner. While regular maintenance is key for any A/C, it’s even more important when your unit is older. This allows us to stay on top of anything that might become a problem and make extra sure it isn’t taxed beyond what it can stand.
When we come out to do a tune-up, we’ll start by looking over your A/C visually. We’ll make sure everything is connected that needs to be and that it looks the way we expect it to. Then, we’ll clean out your coils and any air intakes that have been blocked or have collected dust and debris. Finally, we’ll test each component against the manufacturer’s specifications.
If you’re ready to have your air conditioner tuned up this summer, call us at Total Comfort now. We’ll get in and get out and you’ll know for sure that your unit can take the heat.
