Have You Scheduled Your Pre-Season AC Tune-Up Yet?


True, summer is just about officially here—just a few more days. But does that mean it’s too late to schedule your maintenance tune-up if you haven’t done so already? Of course not! Unless your air conditioner is completely broken down and cannot be repaired, it’s never too late for professional maintenance.

Of course, it does matter how often you have your tune-ups done. If it’s been over a year since your cooling system has been maintained, you certainly shouldn’t wait any longer. And if you have a heat pump system, that means it gets year-round use, and therefore needs year-round care—in this case, two maintenance visits a year. Regardless of the type of air conditioner you use, regular maintenance is vital for your system for the following reasons:

Summer Doesn’t Take a Vacation

It may sound funny to put it that way, but it’s true. Once summer hits, it’s here to stay. Sure, we have some “June gloom” days in the beginning, but if this past week is any indication, our temperatures soar fast and hard.

Your pre-season AC tune-up ensures that your cooling system is always ready to deal with warmer temperatures, no matter how long they last or when they strike!

Running Your AC without Maintenance Literally Costs You

Literally. In fact, it’s estimated that every year your air conditioning system goes without maintenance, it loses about 5% of its efficiency, and the drop off will get steeper over time. You’ll pay more for the times your air conditioner is running longer than it should have to because it’s struggling to do its job.

Avoid Breakdowns

Do we even really need to tell you, that you don’t want an air conditioning breakdown in the middle of August? This is probably the biggest reason you should have maintenance done on a regular basis. You’ll prevent the system from suddenly shutting down on you during a baking hot day. There are plenty more of those on their way, and you want your cooling system prepped to get through each of them.

Prevent Unnecessary Repairs

Nobody wants to spend their “summer fun” money on repairs for their air conditioner, right? Even a simple precaution of a maintenance tune-up, no matter what time of the year it happens, takes care of 80% of the repairs your air conditioner might need.
