Why AC Tune-Ups Are So Important

Your air conditioner is probably the most-used appliance in your home other than your refrigerator. This device is crucial to home comfort, especially here in sunny California.

Unfortunately, many homeowners don’t take care of their air conditioners the way they should, leading to higher operating costs, more frequent repairs, and a less comfortable home. Therefore, a professional air conditioner tune-up should be on everyone’s to-do list this year. Here are some ways a tune-up helps your system run better.

Improving Efficiency

You may assume that your AC system is running fine — you feel the cool air and are reasonably comfortable. But what may be wrong is what you’re paying for that comfort and any underlying issues that could slowly be making things worse.

A tune-up from a professional will ensure any small issues happening inside your unit are addressed. This could be something as simple as dust buildup or as complicated as a broken part. These issues may not cause your system to break down, but a system running inefficiently is costing you money. Problems within the system make it work harder and accumulate more wear and tear, possibly leading to more expensive repairs and at the very least cost you more on your utility bills.

Preventing Breakdowns

Along with improving efficiency, a tune-up allows a technician to complete any repairs that may be necessary with your system. These may be issues that you’re unaware of, and therefore could be happening in the background. A smaller repair while your system still functions will always be simpler and more cost-effective than waiting until your entire air conditioner no longer works.
