How often do I need an air conditioner cleaning?
Many customers ask, “Does my A/C really need a check-up every year?” According to Energy.gov, dirt and neglect are the top causes of heating and cooling system failure. In addition to eliminating the top cause of repairs, keeping your furnace clean improves efficiency, lowering your heating bills. Would you drive your car for 100k miles without an oil change? Of course not! Your air conditioner is no different. Over the course of a single cooling season, your air conditioner collects loads of dirt, cottonwood, and insects. Annual A/C maintenance is the best way to ensure safety, reliability, and peak efficiency.
Benefits of an A/C Tune-Up
Lower utility bills
The advertised efficiency is only accurate when your A/C is factory-fresh. After a year of operation, dirt prevents good airflow and heat transfer across the outdoor coil. With proper maintenance, we restore the system to clean and efficient operation. Depending on the current state of your A/C, a tune-up can completely pay for itself with reduced energy usage.
Catch small problems before they become big problems
We know from experience that, if we ignore small problems, they frequently become big, expensive problems. The most common failures on an air conditioner are the contactor and capacitor. These repairs are typically less than $200, but can they can ruin your compressor if If you want to avoid big repairs, there’s no substitute for getting a professional technician in front of your furnace every year.
Every manufacturer requires annual maintenance to keep your warranty in good standing. The top causes of A/C failure are dirt and neglect. Should the manufacturer pay for a repair simply because we never changed the air filter?
Avoid the late-night emergency call
Have you ever noticed that things always break at the most inconvenient times? Whether your car breaks down on a road-trip or your air conditioner quits the same day that you’re hosting a big party, Murphy’s Law always has great timing. While a tune-up cannot guarantee that you’ll never have a service call, it will greatly reduce the probability.
Air Conditioner Tune-up Pricing
Have you seen a tune-up price that’s too good to be true? It probably is! In the industry, a cheap tune-up is known as a “fishing expedition.” The service technician can only make a living by finding repairs or by selling you a new system. You may think you are getting a great tune-up for only $39, but instead you just paid for a salesman to tell you that you need a new A/C!
So why wait? Our professional central air conditioner check-up only costs $99 and we can schedule at your convenience (including evenings and Saturdays). Take care of your family’s comfort today with a simple call or click.
