Spring is the time to start thinking about getting your air conditioner ready for the coming summer months. At Nicholson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, we recommend having your cooling system tuned up each year, but we understand why many of our customers are hesitant when it comes to spending money fixing something that does not appear to be broken.
If you’re wondering, “Do I really need an air conditioning tune-up,” the answer is yes. Here are just a few reasons why.
Air Conditioning Tune-Ups Save Money
You might think about skipping maintenance to save money, but it could cost you in the long run. Keeping up with basic maintenance keeps a lot of major problems at bay and helps you avoid costly repairs and emergency service. Keeping your air conditioner properly tuned up also keeps it running at peak efficiency, reducing your monthly energy bills.
Your Air Conditioner Hasn’t Been Used in Months
Chances are, it has been several months since the last time you cranked up your air conditioner. If you’ve ever noticed a musty or burning odor when turning your AC on for the first time of the season, you’ve smelled all the debris that collected on your air conditioner’s coils during the winter months. In addition to causing an unpleasant odor, using your cooling system without removing the dirt and debris could affect performance and efficiency.
When your cooling system is not in use, electrical problems and refrigerant leaks can also develop. Having the system inspected prior to using it for the first time each season ensures that all any problems will be detected before they can cause serious damage.
Maintained Air Conditioners Last Longer
If you do not want to have to replace your home’s cooling system anytime soon, you need to have it tuned up from time to time. Just like your car requires routine oil changes, tire rotations, etc. to keep it running like the day you brought it home, your air conditioner requires maintenance to prevent system failure.
Annual air conditioner tune-ups are the best way to increase your cooling system’s lifespan. An annual tune-up also provides an opportunity for you to learn when your system may be due to be replaced soon. Learn about our Comfort Protection Service Plans.
