Summer will be here before we know it. We have already explained how to prepare your air conditioner for spring, but have you taken the time to schedule a tune up? Regular maintenance will keep your system working at its best so you and your family can stay cool. Below are just some of the reasons why you should add a cooling system tune-up to your spring cleaning list:
It reduces your utility bill
Routinely cleaning or replacing your A/C filter is one of the most important maintenance tasks you should be taking, especially if you’re a pet owner. If your filter is clogged with dirt and pet hair, dust and debris will bypass the filter and go straight to the coils, which can cause your A/C to overheat. With regular cleanings and upkeep, you can lower your unit’s energy consumption by up to 15%.
A breakdown will cost you more
Overlooking maintenance is easy to do, but a new unit can be pricey. If your system is under warranty, it’s most likely required to receive regular maintenance. Keeping up with routine repairs and cleanings can prolong your cooling system’s life by at least ten years and give you the most for your money.
Spot little issues before they become big ones
A tune up with Tri-City Heating & Cooling will prevent significant damage to your air conditioner.
