It’s That Time of Year: Schedule Your AC Tune-Up Today

technician working on air conditionerSpringtime marks a shift in the weather as cooler temperatures slowly but surely dissipate and the heat of summer draws closer. Right now is the best time to arrange for your air conditioning system’s annual maintenance appointment—or biannual if you have a heat pump system. There are a few basic jobs you can do on your own when it comes to maintaining your Leesberg HVAC system, such as changing the air filter and making sure your outdoor unit and vents are unobstructed.

However, if you want to truly make a difference in the performance and efficiency of your air conditioner, then you need professional maintenance done by trained HVAC technicians. Only an experienced professional can handle the various tasks involved with this service, such as inspecting motors and electrical connections, and cleaning coils and all other moving parts. You can count on our technicians to provide your air conditioner with top quality maintenance!

How Does a Spring Tune-Up Benefit You?

There’s a common misconception that spring maintenance is a luxury service, and that it’s perfectly okay to skip a year here and there. However, doing this can lead to cumulative problems, including premature system breakdown leading to replacement.

There are a number of advantages to keeping up with your annual air conditioning (and heating, for that matter) tune-ups.

Your AC Will Perform More Reliably: This is probably the biggest benefit of routine AC maintenance. Your cooling system will be less likely to suffer from a major operational failure in the summer. Inspections locate places where stress on the system can lead to breakdowns, while adjustments and cleaning further remove potential issues. With a well-tuned air conditioner, you can enter summer with the confidence that you probably won’t need to make any emergency repair calls.

Your System Will Be More Efficient: The buildup of wear and tear on your cooling system creates strain on its components. One particular component of concern is the blower motor. This stress will cause higher utility bills as your system tries to overcome the extra strain. If your AC system has regular maintenance, however, then it should retain 95% of its efficiency rating during its service life.

The Air Conditioner Will Last Longer: Speaking of service life, most cooling systems should last around 10 to 15 years, or more, before requiring a replacement system. This is only possible, however, if that system has routine professional maintenance done. Annual inspections and tune-ups will help your air conditioner give you the best return on your initial investment in it by lasting as long as possible.

Fewer Repair Needs: You don’t want to spend extra money each year to have your air conditioner repaired, right? Well, around 85% of the repairs an AC system might need during its service life are actually preventable, thanks to maintenance inspections that catch problems early on. This means huge savings in repair bills, plus it’s more convenient for you!
