As summer approaches, you may notice an increase in advertisements from HVAC companies promoting their seasonal tune-up. These air-conditioning companies aren’t just promoting a special service for their benefit. It is vital to the health of your unit that you schedule regular maintenance calls, or tune-ups. You may wonder, do I really need an A/C tune-up every summer? The answer is yes! The number one reason you should schedule an A/C tune-up this summer is simple: it will save you money!
Save More than Just Money
Most homeowners don’t run their air conditioning throughout winter, meaning that your A/C has been sitting around dormant for a couple of months. It can collect dust and debris, causing it to lose some of its operating efficiency. During an A/C tune-up, the HVAC technicians will thoroughly clean your system and inspect it for any issues or potential threats. Not only can this help you avoid costly breakdowns, but it will help your unit perform more efficiently. This means your unit doesn’t have to work as hard, using less energy and keeping your monthly bills in check.
If you experience an unexpected breakdown, you may need to purchase a new A/C unit if yours is at the end of its life. New units can cost a fortune. Fortunately, regular tune-ups can increase the lifespan of your unit. Tune-ups prevent breakdowns and damages to the unit. The less stress and damages your unit experiences throughout its lifetime, the longer the lifespan. Even better, regular maintenance is often a clause in most warranty contracts. Performing annual tune-ups can help preserve your system’s warranty, enabline you to save even more money.
If you are looking to keep your home cool and safe throughout the summer, all while saving money, the choice is clear: call to schedule a tune-up today!
