Benefits of an Air Conditioner Tune-Up
Many homeowners have the mindset of ignoring home appliance maintenance until there is an issue. However, many problems can be avoided with regular checks. Much like a vehicle, your air conditioning unit runs best when it is taken care of. You can also avoid unexpected breakdowns and catch repair needs before they create emergencies with regular maintenance.
Even if everything seems to be running smoothly or the unit is new, a tune-up will help ensure its proper functioning all summer long.
Other benefits of an air conditioning tune-up include:
- Higher efficiency.
- Lower energy costs.
- Improved indoor air quality.
- Even temperatures throughout the home.
- Meeting warranty qualifications.
- Extending your unit’s longevity.
- Avoiding emergency repairs.
Neglecting yearly maintenance on your air conditioner opens it up for quicker deterioration and decreased efficiency. If a problem does arise, your warranty may be voided without a history of professional maintenance checks. The best way to care for your air conditioner is to have it regularly serviced by an AirMax technician.
What Is Included in an AC Tune-up?
During a tune-up, a highly trained technician will inspect your unit’s overall function and check for any needed repairs. They will test airflow, confirm the unit’s communication with the thermostat, change out the air filter, clean internal parts, clear the drain line, verify the proper refrigerant charge, and check for signs of wear and tear. If your unit is in need of AC repair, they will explain the findings and offer effective and affordable solutions.
All of these maintenance steps help keep the parts in your air conditioner running smoothly and provide you with efficient cooling all season. Although an air conditioning tune-up seems like it is an extra unnecessary cost, especially if your unit is already running well, it can help you save money in the long run by taking care of worn-out parts before they turn into emergencies and extending life of your unit.
Do I Need a Tune-up, Repair, or Replacement?
While a tune-up and repairs can help increase your unit’s overall performance, eventually your air conditioner may reach the end of its usefulness in which no amount of maintenance will help. Air conditioners last on average 10-15 years. If yours is nearing this limit and you are spending more and more on cooling repair, you may be better off with a new air conditioner rather than trying to fix your old one.
Typically, if the condenser is broken or the coolant line is starting to leak, it is more cost-effective to replace rather than repair. However, just because your unit has a concerning problem, such as it won’t turn on, it doesn’t mean it is worthless. A professional air conditioning repairman can inspect your unit, estimate the cost of the damage, and help you determine the best course of action.
When it is time for a new unit, our AC installation experts can assist you with finding the right one for your home. Many newer units are much more efficient and use more environmentally friendly forms of coolant in their systems. Many homeowners choose a similar air conditioner to their previous ones for their cooling needs, but you may need a more powerful unit if you recently added space onto your home or if your old one never seemed to meet your demands. Our cooling experts can walk you through your options and set you up with better cooling when you are ready to swap out your old air conditioner.
