With summer comes uncomfortable heat and glaring sun. If you live in a warmer climate, air conditioning is an essential part of living a comfortable life. You deserve a place to get away and cool off, and air conditioning transforms your home into that summer oasis. However, your air conditioning requires service from time to time to keep it running at peak efficiency, making it essential to have regular AC maintenance performed on your unit. An AC tune-up will ensure that you have complete control over your home’s temperature. If it’s been a while since your AC has been serviced, call T.E. Spall & Son today. We can help you stay cool for the summer!
What is an AC Tune-Up?
You’ve decided it’s time for an AC tune-up, but what if you’ve never had one? What is an AC tune-up exactly? And what does an AC tune-up include? An AC tune-up is routine care for your air conditioner. A scheduled appointment for a home AC tune-up will have an HVAC technician come to your home to inspect and clean your air conditioner.
If there are any glaring issues, the technician will address them with you and figure out how to tackle them. Services can vary depending on the technician, but a standard clean and check-up is part of every appointment. A typical home AC tune-up from T.E. Spall & Son will include a clean and a check for efficiency, addressing any issues that might be keeping your home from keeping cool.
Why Do I Need an AC Tune-Up Service?
Like many other machines we use consistently, ACs need routine maintenance to operate at their best. If your AC doesn’t get the attention it needs, it can end up with a lower life expectancy or even a complete system failure. So what happens to your AC unit with regular use? It turns out the long summers don’t just take a toll on you; your cooling system will accrue dust and dirt throughout the year.
Sometimes, moisture from more humid climates can cause microbial growths to form on or inside the AC. Without an annual AC unit tune-up, these can turn into serious issues for the efficiency of your AC unit, which can cause higher bills and possibly even some warmer-than-desired evenings.
Ignoring your annual air conditioning maintenance can eventually lead to even more expensive and extensive services. Any way you slice it, you can save yourself money in the long run by scheduling annual maintenance and cleaning of your AC unit with T.E. Spall & Son.
