Why You Should Get an AC Tune-Up Before the Summer

ac tune upSummer is upon us; is your air conditioner ready to handle the heat? A spring tune-up is the best way to prepare your system for the scorching temperatures and high humidity we experience here in New Jersey. While some homeowners think an air conditioner tune-up is unnecessary, this service can actually help your system run more efficiently, save money on your monthly utility bills, and keep you and your home cool and comfortable. Below, Clay’s Climate Control highlights five reasons we recommend AC maintenance every spring. 

Reduced Risk of a Breakdown

The last thing you want to worry about during a heat wave is whether or not your air conditioner will break down. Having regular maintenance performed on your air conditioner before the summer heat arrives is a great way to ensure your system is ready for the season. An experienced technician can inspect and alleviate any potential issues before they become significant problems. Fixing smaller issues now is almost always less costly than a repair job (or replacement) in the dead of summer.

Improved Energy Efficiency

During the long winter, dust, pet dander, and other debris can accumulate in your AC system and reduce efficiency. In fact, your AC could be losing up to 15% of its efficiency every year without regular maintenance, bringing your energy bills up. When you clean the coils and other critical mechanical parts, your technician guarantees your system runs as optimally as possible.    

Better Indoor Air Quality

Spring is one of the worst times for allergy sufferers, bringing enough pollen to make you sneeze and your eyes itch. If you don’t schedule an AC tune-up, these particles collect in your system and circulate inside your home. During a tune-up, your HVAC professional will change the filters and inspect the system for pollutants like mold and bacteria. Poor indoor air quality has been linked to respiratory problems and other health issues, so it’s essential to have your system checked.

Increases the Lifespan of Your Air Conditioner

Springtime AC maintenance ensures your system runs as efficiently as possible for as long as possible. Most well-maintained units last 15-20 years. Avoid a summer breakdown by scheduling an AC tune-up now.  

Save Money

A well-maintained AC system no doubt saves money by operating at peak efficiency. But it also saves you money by avoiding costly breakdowns. Regular maintenance is nearly always less expensive than repair or replacement and will give you peace of mind that you won’t be left without air conditioning in the middle of the summer heat.
