AC Tune-Ups: Their Top Benefits

Most HVAC companies recommend air conditioning tune-ups, even for those with a brand-new system. The reasons are understandable enough: All ACs develop problems, and most homeowners lack the time or the skills to find these problems and eliminate them before they grow. The following are just a few of the benefits that come with ongoing maintenance.

Saving You Time and Money

Neglect can cause all sorts of problems. For example, the ducts in a central AC unit can build up debris, the compressor may go bad, electrical wiring may become loose, and refrigerant may leak out. The condensate pump may malfunction, causing water to leak and possibly damage the interior of one’s home.

A tune-up, a large chunk of which consists of component checks, will prevent all of these. Extensive repairs can leave you without cool air for perhaps several days, but tune-ups can help you avoid this inconvenience as well.

Keeping Your AC Energy-Efficient

Ultimately, regular maintenance can increase the lifespan of your system. One way it does this is by removing any burden that might be forcing the system to work harder than it should.

For example, dirty filters, clogged vents, and air leaks can all cause the AC to stay on longer to do its job. You might notice this when your utility bills become abnormally high. With a tune-up, the technician can replace filters, seal leaks, and clean out debris.

Improving Indoor Air Quality

Cleaning out debris also means cleaning out pollutants that might be circulating and compromising the indoor air quality. This is especially important for households where there are pets or smokers.
