Just like going to your doctor for a check-up, your air conditioning unit needs a check-up too! Here’s why an AC tune up is recommended twice a year.

Why do I need an AC tune up?

  • A seasonal tune-up on your AC unit can extend the life of your unit by several years.
  • It will save you up to 15% on monthly energy bills.
  • The cost of a tune-up is much lower than the cost of a replacement unit.
  • Well-maintained units should last 15 years or more.

What is involved in an AC tune-up?

  • Your technician will check for dirty or loose electrical connections and will also check for leaks
  • Will replace air filters
  • Check refrigerant levels
  • Ensure thermostat is working properly
  • Look for and remove any air duct blockages
  • Clean off dirt, dust, and other contaminants from the evaporator and condenser coils
  • Run test to check functionality

How will an AC tune-up affect my utility bill?

  • When you get regular tune-ups, you ensure that your unit is working properly and using the least amount of energy necessary to cool your home.
  • Using the least amount of energy means you’ll see a drop in your energy bills

Preventing major damage

  • Regular check-ups can prevent bigger problems and help you save money on costly repairs later on.

Preventing hot/cold spots

  • A good running system should cool your home evenly and keep you from having hot and/or cold spots throughout your home.
