It’s important to have your air conditioner professionally tuned-up every year. Preventative maintenance can improve reliability, efficiency and help you save money in the long run. While we normally advise homeowners to schedule this appointment as soon as the weather permits, you can schedule AC maintenance at any time, so waiting until the summer is ok!
To keep your car running smoothly you need to get regular oil changes. Driving the car without going for an oil change can lead to extensive (and expensive) problems. The same concept applies to your air conditioner. Neglecting annual AC maintenance can cause a number of problems.
One of the main side effects of skipping regular maintenance is that efficiency can drop. This means that you’ll be paying more in monthly bills to run the air conditioner because it can’t cool the house properly. You might also notice uneven cooling in certain parts of the home or unusual operation such as loud noises or new smells.
When a certified technician comes to your home for an air conditioner tune-up appointment, they will clean key components, make small adjustments and look for any signs of wear and tear on the system. By identifying issues early, you can save the hassle of an AC breakdown later.
It’s also worth noting that if your air conditioner is still under manufacturer warranty, you’ll need proof of annual professional maintenance to make a claim.
