You have probably seen the advertisements from many heating and air conditioning companies encouraging you to get an annual A/C tune-up. We get questions all the time from San Jose area home owners asking if they really need to get a tune-up every summer.
The answer is, yes. But we won’t leave it at that – we’ll give you some incentive. An air conditioning tune-up will save you money.
You Will Save Money
While your air conditioner sat dormant throughout the winter months, it collected dust and debris and may have also lost some of its charge. During an AC tune up, the technician will clean your cooling system’s coils and other critical internal components and make sure it is properly charged. This ensures you will benefit from your system’s maximum energy efficiency and enjoy decreased utility costs.
Some other ways it saves you money include:
- Reduces air conditioning breakdowns – Every summer we get calls from San Jose area homeowners with air conditioning problems that could have been easily prevented with regular maintenance. During a tune-up, your technician will identify any small problems that could turn into larger, more costly repairs if not fixed.
- Increases your system’s lifespan – It is unlikely that you would continue to drive your vehicle without ever changing the oil or performing other regular maintenance. Yet many homeowners ignore their air conditioning unit and expect it to perform up to its full potential. Regular maintenance and tune-ups save you money by increasing the air conditioner’s lifespan, allowing you to get the most out of your investment.
- Maintains manufacturer’s warranty – Maybe you have a pretty new air conditioner that is still under the manufacturer’s warranty so you are not concerned about breakdowns. Did you know that many warranties require a licensed professional performs regular maintenance? Ignoring your annual A/C tune-ups may be costing you money by voiding your system’s warranty.
