Your AC unit is easy to disregard as a self-regulating part of your household, but did you know that it actually needs a little TLC to keep it running at tip-top shape? At Mathews CCAC, we know the importance of AC tune-ups in the spring and fall to maintain your air quality and lengthen the life of your system and we’re here to share that knowledge with you. Read below to learn more!
Why Is A Spring AC Tune-Up Important?
AC tune-ups are important for a variety of reasons. If you find yourself frequently having to call a professional to repair your unit or your energy bill has recently skyrocketed, it could be that your HVAC system is not receiving the proper care and having to work harder than it should to heat or cool your home.
Getting biannual tune-ups in the spring and fall can fix this, however, and will add to the overall value of your house as well! Below are some additional reasons that getting biannual AC tune-ups is the right choice for you.
HVAC systems come with a manufacturer’s warranty that typically lasts anywhere from 5-10 years. If something happens to the equipment, the warranty will only stand if your system has been properly taken care of throughout the years.
This is where those tune-ups come in! They (along with preventative maintenance) are the perfect way to ensure that you don’t breach your warranty and end up spending more money than you bargained for on repairs.
Extending the Life of Your System
Scheduling tune-ups can extend the life of your system, guaranteeing it sticks with you for the long haul. Having a professional technician regularly check out the function and efficiency of your HVAC unit means that issues will be intercepted before they escalate.
Preventing wear and tear is key to preserving the life of your unit.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
Your HVAC system plays a major role in how clean or dirty your home’s indoor air quality is. Indoor air quality, or IAQ, can negatively affect the health, safety and comfort of you and your loved ones.
Poor indoor air quality is an issue in many homes, but this can be combated by scheduling tune-ups to have a technician clean your ductwork, change your air filters and check your system for any irregularities.
What Is Included In an AC Tune-Up?
Tune-ups are performed by a professional CCAC technician and will include the following:
- Checking the ductwork
- Testing all electrical components
- Cleaning the entire AC unit (outside and inside)
- Thermostat calibration
- Checking and adjusting coolant levels
- Cleaning the condenser coil
Getting your spring tune-up will have you breathing easy and can reduce your cooling costs, add years to your system’s life and mean fewer expensive repairs.
