An AC tuneup may not rank high on your to-do list, but it should. Regular AC maintenance extends the lifespan of your system, validates its warranty and helps ensure the air inside your home or business is fresh and pure. If that’s not enough to convince you to pay attention to AC maintenance, here are three more reasons why you should schedule an AC tuneup.
It Ensures Your AC Is There When You Need It
Okay, maybe this one is obvious. Seriously, though, when the temperature spikes and you suddenly need air conditioning, you don’t want to turn on your unit and discover it isn’t working. Considering that humidity levels in May average 70 percent in our area, an AC tuneup is an inexpensive way to ensure your air conditioner is ready to dehumidify your home as well as cool it.
It Increases the Efficiency of Your Unit
An inefficient air conditioning system needlessly drains money from your budget. Clogged filters and malfunctioning thermostats are among the issues that require your air conditioner to work harder to deliver the same amount of comfort. This extra work means increased wear and tear on your system and higher fuel bills for your household. An AC tuneup identifies these inefficiencies and enables you to cut your energy bills by up to 50 percent.
It Prevents Major Breakdowns
Regular AC maintenance means that a certified technician is checking your air conditioner for small things that can lead to bigger problems. An AC tuneup might reveal faulty wiring or a refrigerant leak, both of which could lead to compressor burnout. It’s much easier on your pocketbook to have a tuneup compared to replacing a major component of your system.
Don’t sacrifice your comfort by waiting until the heat and humidity hit before scheduling an AC tuneup. To learn more about why you can depend on Willard Heating and Air for tuneups and other air conditioning services, check out our history or give us a call.
