Top 5 Reasons Not to Skip Your A/C Tune-Up
May 7, 2018
Summer is fast approaching, which means Pennsylvania residents are looking forward to longer days and warmer weather. You are probably just about finished with your spring cleaning checklist. Have you scheduled your air conditioning tune-up yet? Some homeowners may be tempted to skip or put off this task. Find out why your annual tune-up is actually one of the most important parts about getting ready for summer.
Benefits of Your Air Conditioning Tune-Up
A professional HVAC tune-up just once a year can significantly improve any air conditioning system. The sooner you schedule annual service the sooner you can start reaping the rewards of these important advantages:
1. Improved Operating Efficiency
Your annual tune-up includes important steps, like lubricating moving parts and checking for adequate refrigerant charge, to help ensure that your air conditioner is operating at peak efficiency.
2. Lower Summer Energy Bills
When your air conditioning system is performing as efficiently as possible, it requires less energy to produce cooling output. Less energy used means less money spent. Not to mention, the preventative benefits of your annual tune-up will help save money on service down the road.
3. Reduced Risk of Midseason Breakdowns
Having your A/C tuned up by an HVAC technician every year is the easiest way to prevent service issues. Service calls can be costly and there is nothing worse than a broken air conditioner in August.
4. Extended Equipment Lifespan
Air conditioning equipment is an investment. Make your money go the distance! The US Department of Energy estimates that air conditioning systems that are maintained on an annual basis can last 15-20 years, compared to 10-15 years without yearly service.
5. Better Home Comfort
When it is time to take a break from fun in the sun, nothing beats returning to a home with reliable air conditioning. All of the benefits of scheduling an annual tune-up listed above add up to your family’s comfort and convenience.
