In order to keep your heating and air conditioning system running as efficiently and reliably as possible you must maintain your system. A Tune Up extends your equipment life while reducing energy costs. Regular maintenance can prevent little problems from becoming big ones. You don’t go for years without having your car serviced, do you?
Why should I get a Tune-up on my Air Conditioner?
Like a car, your Air Conditioner needs regular tune ups to ensure it will run properly. Without regular maintenance an air conditioner loses approximately 5% of its original efficiency for each year of operation. What this means is if you have a 12 SEER unit and do not maintain it, a few years from now it will operate as 9 SEER. This loss of efficiency will affect your indoor comfort and your utility bill.
With regular maintenance your unit will maintain 95% of its original efficiency.
If your unit is under warranty, proof of maintenance is often required, in the event something goes wrong. Some warranties become void if you do not have proof of regular maintenance.
How often should I service my Unit?
We recommend getting a Tune-up annually. We offer our best price on a Tune-Up during the fall and early spring.
