Air conditioner tune ups – are they really necessary?

Published On: May 21, 2022Categories: Advice and tips

An air conditioner tune up is the simplest and best thing you can do to guarantee that your air conditioner will keep you comfortable all summer long.  It’s also the best assurance that minor problems don’t develop into major problems that end up costing you a lot of money later on.

Why you should schedule a tune up for your air conditioner

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure

Our skilled technicians will catch any small problems before they become big ones.  Naturally, it’s much cheaper to fix a minor problem than a major one. It’s much less expensive, for example, for a technician to find and repair a coolant leak before it leads to a complete compressor breakdown.

Save money on energy bills

When your air conditioner is running well, it uses less energy to cool your home.  Lower energy use means lower monthly utility bills.
