Scheduling regular air conditioner tune-ups help prevent the breakdown of critical components from happening and keeps your AC running smoothly.
During an air conditioner tune-up, our technicians can detect and fix minor issues before they become bigger, more expensive problems. This extends the life of your AC unit and helps save you money on energy bills and potentially costly repairs down the road.
So don’t wait until your AC stops working – regular schedule tune-ups for peace of mind and optimum performance all summer long.
Schedule a tune-up for your heating and cooling system before the middle of winter or summer. Keep your system running smoothly by scheduling regular maintenance appointments. Your comfort and wallet will thank you in the long run.
During a tune-up, our team will clean and inspect all AC unit components and lubricate any moving parts as necessary. Check for signs of damage or wear that may need immediate attention to prevent future issues. This preventive maintenance can also prolong the life of your unit, potentially saving you money in the long run on costly repairs or replacements.
Additionally, regular maintenance can improve energy efficiency and lower monthly utility bills. As part of a tune-up, we will calibrate the thermostat and adjust any airflow issues to promote more efficient cooling throughout your home or business.
Regular maintenance can also extend its lifespan, saving you money in the long run on replacement costs.
Some simple steps to keep your AC in top shape include regularly changing or cleaning air filters, clearing debris from outside units, and scheduling annual professional inspections and tune-ups.

How Often Do I Need An AC Tune-Up?
While regular maintenance is necessary, it may not always catch every potential issue with your AC unit. That’s why it’s also important to pay attention to any odd behaviors or changes in performance and address them promptly. A well-maintained AC unit combined with prompt attention to issues can ensure the longevity and efficiency of your air conditioning system.
Scheduling an AC tune-up at least once a year is recommended, preferably before the start of the summer season when your AC will work harder. This can help prevent any unexpected breakdowns during peak usage times. Additionally, some manufacturers or extended warranty plans may require regular maintenance to keep coverage intact.
In special circumstances, such as moving into a new home or after a long period of non-use (such as during winter), schedule a tune-up before putting your AC unit back into regular operation.
Ultimately, consulting with a trusted HVAC technician and following their recommendations for maintenance can ensure the best performance and longevity for your air conditioning system.
