If your air conditioner isn't regularly serviced, you could be setting yourself up for a disaster. Here's how often, and why, you should get your AC tuned up!

Clean Air Conditioners Run Better

A clean system runs more efficiently. When your air conditioner sits all winter, dust, dirt, and all sorts of other debris is deposited on the unit itself, potentially tampering with the inner workings of the machine. This causes extra wear and tear and can lead to breakdowns over time. Part of our regular air conditioner service includes a thorough cleaning.

Regular Tuneups Keep Your Electric Bill Lower

If you’re like most homeowners, your air conditioner will be responsible for the lion’s share of your monthly utility bills over the summer. If your system isn’t running efficiently, it uses more electricity than normal and will cost you more. After a tune-up, your AC system will perform better and cost you less.

Leaking Refrigerant is Bad News

If your refrigerant is leaking, it will cause inefficient cooling, increased humidity, and higher electricity bills. In addition, refrigerant leaks can be harmful to your health and the environment. An annual tune-up can identify and mitigate problems that lead to refrigerant leaks, and also make sure that you have the correct level of refrigerant in your system.

When is the best time for an AC tune-up?

If your AC has received regular maintenance, the best time for a tune-up is In the spring, before the air conditioning season kicks in but after the winter has done its worst. If you don’t remember when your last AC tune-up was, the best time is now!
