Updated: Feb 13, 2020
It’s summer in New England, which means beach/lake days, grilling outside, and firing up your air conditioning system. This is the time of year that we come out to inspect our customers ac systems and perform all the necessary inspections and tasks to ensure their cooling systems run smoothly and efficiently all summer long. One of the most frequently asked questions we receive this time of year is “should I tune-up my ac system?”. The following are a list of benefits to better help you understand why this service can be crucial for your system.
Catch small problems before they become BIG problems. Like most things, the longer you ignore a problem, the worse it tends to get. This holds true for your air conditioning system. An unattended problem will leave you with higher operating costs and a more expensive repair. By performing routine maintenance, we check for any problems before they cause significant harm to your system and take care of them before they get worse.
Avoid system break downs when you need it most. The last thing you want is for your ac system to break down on your during a 90+ degree heat wave. A tune-up will help ensure your system is running as smooth as possible and prevent unexpected problems when you need it most.
Lower your utility bills. A tune-up will bring your system up to peak operating efficiency. We research the manufacturers specs for your system and use this as a guideline for tuning up your system. This will allow your unit to consume less energy and keep your utility bills low. The sooner during the season you get your tune-up, the more you can take advantage of lower operating costs.
Extend the life of your unit. An air conditioning system that is tuned up regularly last much longer than a poorly maintained system. Performing routine maintenance on your system can add years to its operating life.
One of the easiest things homeowners can do to maintain their systems is to change the filters four times a year to keep them running smoothly and to maintain sufficient airflow. This will also improve indoor air quality by removing pollen and pollutants.
