Why You Shouldn’t Skip Your Yearly AC Tune-Up

It can be tempting to skip an AC tune-up. Afterall, it worked fine last year, right? Here’s why you shouldn’t skip your spring service visit…

Summer in the Midwest can mean scorching temperatures and humidity. The last thing you want to worry about, while you should be enjoying the summer weather, is an AC breakdown.

Just like your car needs regular maintenance your AC needs it too. It’s called an annual AC tune-up, and here’s why it’s so important…

An AC Tune-Up Saves You Money

Let’s talk about efficiency. Overtime, dust and dirt accumulate, filters get clogged, your AC’s parts wear out. Your air conditioner works tirelessly during the hot months, but without proper maintenance, its efficiency can decline over time.

An annual tune-up involves cleaning the unit, replacing filters, lubricating moving parts, and checking for any signs of wear and tear. These simple tasks can significantly improve the efficiency of your AC system, reducing energy consumption and ultimately lowering your utility bills.

Tune-Ups Prevent Major Repairs

There’s never a good time for your AC to break down, especially during the peak of summer. But, without regular maintenance, unexpected breakdowns become more likely.

Getting an AC tune-up is a proactive step you can take each year to help prevent costly repairs and the inconvenience of a sudden breakdown.

Keep Your AC Running Longer

A well-maintained AC unit can last as long as 15 years or more. An air conditioning system is a significant investment, and like any investment, you want to keep it well-maintained.

Regular maintenance plays a crucial role in prolonging the lifespan of your AC unit. By addressing minor issues early and keeping the system clean and well-lubricated, you reduce the strain on its components, ultimately extending its longevity. This means fewer replacements and greater value for your money in the long run.

Better Indoor Air

Beyond keeping your home comfortable, your AC plays a big role in maintaining good indoor air quality. Overtime, dust, pollen, and other allergens can accumulate within the system, circulating throughout your living spaces and potentially exacerbating respiratory issues. During a tune-up, technicians clean the unit thoroughly, ensuring that the air you breathe remains clean and healthy. This is particularly important for households with individuals prone to allergies or asthma.

Maintaining Warranty Coverage

Did you know, many air conditioning manufacturers require proof of regular maintenance to uphold warranty coverage? Skipping annual tune-ups could void your warranty, leaving you responsible for the full cost of any repairs or replacements. By adhering to the manufacturer’s maintenance guidelines, you not only ensure that your warranty remains valid but also protect yourself financially in the event of a major system failure.
