Monday, June 26, 2017
Warmer weather has finally arrived, and that means that your air conditioning system and going to be getting more and more regular use, if it isn’t already. Before your system goes into almost constant use, it is important to make sure that it is prepared for the task ahead of it. Turning on your air conditioning system and expecting it to run all summer long without any kind of service is almost like asking someone to get out and run a marathon without any kind of preparation or stretching. They might be able to do it, but it is much more likely that something is going to go awry in some way or another, and your air conditioning system is no different. Your AC is one of the most important systems in your home, especially during the summer months. As such, you want to be sure that it has what it needs to make it through the summer months in one piece so that you and your family don’t wind up stuck in the blistering heat this summer. One of the best ways to do this is to hire a professional to come out and give your system a professional tune up before the summer gets into full swing. To highlight the importance of this, our team of experts have put together this short list going over just a couple of the reasons that getting a professional tune up for your home’s air conditioning system might just be the best decision you make this year.
Prevent Potential Problems
Because your air conditioning system is going to be in use almost constantly over the course of the summer, it is important to schedule a tune up as close to the beginning of summer as you can. This will help to reduce the amount of down time that you and your family have to go through. More importantly, during this inspection, a professional will be able to take a look at your system and identify and correct and small issues that might have the potential to lead to more serious issues as time goes on. Catching any of these problems early on before they have a chance to do more damage to your system, or evolve into something more serious can save you a great deal of money and headache in the coming months when a breakdown would be absolutely catastrophic.
Keep Your AC Unit In Warranty
If your air conditioning system is still fairly new, making sure that you schedule a tune up with an experienced professional can actually help you keep your AC unit within warranty. Most warranties have a stipulation of some kind that you need to have your system professionally serviced at least once a year to remain valid, and a professional tune up can serve as that required servicing. This can help you maintain peace of mind in knowing that if the worst were to happen to your system you wouldn’t be left high and dry.
Extend Your AC Unit’s Lifespan
Just like you would regularly change out the oil in your car or empty the bag in your vacuum cleaner, it is important to take similar preventative measures with your air conditioning system. Taking small steps now can help ensure that your system is able to keep running efficiently for longer, and reduces the amount of wear and tear that your system suffers. With proper maintenance, you can actually extend the lifespan of your AC system by several years, saving yourself a great deal of money as replacement systems don’t come cheap.
