Your HVAC system runs most of the year – either combating the sweltering heat in the summer or keeping the chill out in the winter. That’s a lot of time for the system to run, filter your air, and keep your air regulated. One of the side effects of high use of your HVAC system is that it is likely to wear out faster. That’s why an annual AC tune-up can protect your unit and keep it healthy for many years.
Absolute Comfort Air wants your system to run flawlessly for as long as possible. We highly encourage regular maintenance on your HVAC system, and we want you to know why. Read on for more information on why tune-ups are so important and when it’s the best time to schedule one.
What’s Included In A Tune-Up?
You may think that a tune-up means one of our technicians comes out to your home, looks briefly at your system and tells you everything is fine. That is not that case! Your HVAC tune-up is actually a comprehensive examination of your unit’s performance.
Our experienced technicians double check a long list of components during their diagnostic evaluation to make sure everything is working as it should be. They note any worn down parts or early signs of corrosion or rust to keep an eye on.
We also clean out several parts of the system including the condensate drain line, the condenser coils and even the air filters. We leave your home 100% positive that your system is revitalized and ready to run on maximum efficiency.
What Are The Advantages Of HVAC Maintenance?
Your AC system is like a car in need of an oil change. It will probably still run, but you will begin to see malfunctions the longer it goes without maintenance. There are several benefits that come with the attention and care AC maintenance gives.
- Financial Savings – When your AC system is tuned to maximum efficiency it uses less energy to give you more accurate results. This means that you will see lower utility bills and more savings in your pocket every single month.
- Increased Air Quality – Your heating and cooling system is also responsible for filtering your air. With clean filters and high efficiency, you’ll notice the unit begins to provide cleaner and healthier air to your home.
- Longer Lifespan – The more maintenance your unit gets in its lifetime, the longer it will last. You might buy yourself several years of AC function before it reaches the end of its life.
- Optimal Comfort – Your home will be much better suited to your comfort when your technician adjusts the system to respond better to your needs. You won’t feel like you’re fighting the system, it will finally work with you.
When Should You Schedule Your HVAC Tune-Up?
The most impactful times of the year for your system are the summer and winter months. The extreme temperatures during these seasons tend to make your unit work harder and reveal any issues it may be having. You don’t want to be dealing with a breakdown in the middle of summer or winter!
With this in mind, the spring season is a great time to have your AC system checked to prepare for those boiling temperatures in the summer. Our technicians’ schedules are also usually more available in the spring before all the emergency calls come in. Don’t be one of those emergency calls. Be ready to face the heat!
Similarly, the best time for a heater tune-up is in the fall. Homeowners may not be overly concerned with their heaters most of the year, but it’s still important to make sure they can and will work properly when you need them.
