Before the summer season starts, it is a good idea to have your central AC system tuned up. But it’s never too late if you haven’t already.
Routine summer/pre-summer AC maintenance usually consists of:
- a filter change,
- refrigerant pressure check and
- a visual inspection of your ductwork and all other equipment.
Some companies express what it is they do by calling it different fancy names, like “28-Point Check-up“, “Precision Tune-up“, or just maintenance, but the basics remain the same.
While the individual items could seem to be relatively insignificant, not doing them can ruin your system in the long run.
But even before that, you can spend exponentially more money running a poorly-maintained air conditioning system. If you are looking for a way to lower utility bills and cut costs this summer, tuning up your home’s HVAC system continually proves to be a worthwhile and sound investment.
Don’t wait too long, as peak electricity rates tend to go up during the heat waves and most air conditioning companies can’t keep up with the call volume during peak season.
If you need a referral, have any questions, or if you’re not in our area, please still feel free to call us. We are happy to help.
We also provide a wide range of products and services that we can offer you to keep your air conditioner running smoothly this summer, including all filter types and sizes for you “do-it-yourselfers”. We also offer tune up specials starting at $49 upon request.
