Top Reasons To Get an A/C Tune-up

It’s easy to forget how much we depend on air conditioning.  As temperatures start to rise, we just turn on the A/C and the refreshing breeze of cool air keeps our homes comfortable. Most of us probably don’t give it a second thought. But, when your air conditioner is not working, you’ll quickly notice. Your home will fast become an uncomfortable, sweaty sauna and when it becomes too unbearable you’ll call for an A/C technician.  

Our HVAC professionals at billyGO know the benefits and importance of receiving regular A/C maintenance. Here are a few reasons everyone should have regular A/C Tune-Ups.

They Prevent A/C Breakdowns

It’s a fact that most of the A/C breakdowns we see could have been prevented with an annual tune-up from an HVAC professional.  

When you get an A/C tune-up from a licensed HVAC technician you’re getting peace of mind that everything is functioning as expected. Your technician will inspect the unit inside and out, checking for worn or damaged parts and components. They’ll ensure no dirt, dust, or debris will cause additional corrosion to your air conditioner’s hardware and check that your A/C has the right amount of refrigerant.    

Regular A/C tune-ups result in an air conditioning unit that is fully prepared to go to work, providing your home with clean, cool, refreshing air all summer long.

They Improve Your A/C’s Efficiency

Dirt, leaves, twigs, etc can build up in and around your air conditioner over time. This requires the A/C unit to do more work and may drastically lower the efficiency and performance of the unit. Every component including the exterior fins, coils, blower, and compressor should be inspected and cleared of dust and debris. 

With an A/C tune-up from a professional HVAC technician, your air conditioning unit will be cleaned inside and out to ensure your unit is running at maximum efficiency with optimal performance.  

 An A/C tune-up and cleaning from a professional technician will ensure your air conditioner is running as efficiently and effectively as possible.

They Will Extend The Life Of Your Air Conditioner

It stands to reason a well-maintained air conditioner will last longer than a neglected one. Like all mechanical devices, prolonged use without maintenance will make small damage and defects turn into big problems over time. Preventative maintenance is an effective way to avoid complete mechanical failure. 

By receiving consistent A/C tune-ups from a professional HVAC technician, you can expect your air conditioner to last longer. Cleaning, inspections, repairs, and replacement of faulty parts will keep your issues smaller and reduce the chances of your A/C unit experiencing an unexpected, expensive, catastrophic breakdown.  

By having regular A/C tune-ups, you can expect your air conditioner to run well for years.

They Save You Money In The Long Run

Cooling your home is a large part of your utility bills. In fact, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, air conditioning accounts for about 12% of all energy expenditure in the United States.  

 Regular A/C tune-ups ensure your air conditioner is working at the highest efficiency possible because HVAC professionals maintain, repair, and clean parts and components. An air conditioner running with poor efficiency will result in high utility bills and worsening performance. 

 In addition to saving you money on monthly bills, when you have a professional perform an air conditioning tune-up and inspection, repairs will be made to any small defects or damage. This prevents small issues from turning into big, expensive problems later.

Tune-Ups Are Required to Maintain The Manufacturer’s Warranty

When you bought your A/C unit, it came with a manufacturer’s warranty. These warranties are very important because they cover the cost of routine issues that your unit might experience, and are usually valid for a decade or longer. 

Most of these warranties come with a requirement to receive yearly maintenance from a licensed technician. That means if you fail to receive annual tune-ups or service from a professional HVAC technician, or if you or someone else that is unlicensed attempts to repair your air conditioner, the warranty is void.  

Maintaining your air conditioner’s manufacturer warranty is important as it could potentially save you thousands of dollars. A qualified A/C technician will understand how to perform the actions required to maintain your warranty.
