Spring has sprung (or is about to), and that means it’s time to schedule a professional A/C tune-up. If this sounds unnecessary to you, here are a few reasons why it’s absolutely necessary!
Reason #1: Extended lifespan
Maintaining your air conditioner helps to keep it in optimal condition and to extend its lifespan. Unless, of course, you’d rather just pay for repairs. . .
Give Roger the Plumber a call to find out how making simple maintenance steps and scheduling a tune-up can help reduce the risk of costly repairs in the future.
Reason #2: Maintain warranty
Most homeowners don’t read the warranty notice that comes with their A/C system, which means most homeowners are surprised to discover they need to perform regular maintenance to uphold the warranty. A professional tune-up in the spring is a great way for homeowners to uphold their part of the deal.
Reason #3: Prevent (costly) breakdowns
A professional HVAC technician is trained to spot the most subtle of signs that an A/C system is on the brink of breakdown. A thorough tune-up will help identify simple adjustments or repairs that should be made to prevent expensive breakdowns in the future.
During an A/C tune up, an HVAC technician will:
- Check thermostat settings
- Inspect the system’s electrical components
- Lubricate moving parts
- Check system controls
- Clean evaporator and condenser coils
- Clean and adjust blower components
Reason #4: Improve indoor air quality
During a tune-up, the HVAC technician will replace dirty, clogged air filters with new ones. Depending on the quality of the air filters, the A/C system will filter out dust, dirt, pollen, mold and mold spores, fibers and lint, plaster or wood particles, hair, pet dander, bacteria and other pollutants.
Reason #5: Improve efficiency
A properly cleaned and maintained A/C system will improve efficiency and help reduce monthly energy expenditures. Who doesn’t want to lower their energy bills?
