3 Reasons to Schedule Regular AC Tune-Ups

AC Repair Baltimore

When is the last time you thought about maintaining your central air conditioner? If you only think about your air conditioner when it breaks down, you are not alone. With the arrival of summer comes heavy duty use of your central air system, adding to the regular wear, tear, and strain on your system. When you schedule an annual air conditioner tune-up, you ensure that any potential problems are fixed before they become a major issue. The following are some of the most important reasons to hire an AC contractor to perform a routine tune-up on your air conditioner.

Avoid AC Breakdowns

No one likes it when their air conditioner breaks down, and it always seems to happen on the hottest days of the year. Scheduling a regular tune-up is a great way to prevent this from happening. During a tune-up, your AC contractor will clean your entire system, check your coolant, wires, fans, motor, tighten up all loose parts, and make repairs to any faulty equipment. When everything is checked over and maintained well, there is a smaller chance that your AC will break during the peak of summer. 

Improve Air Conditioner Efficiency

When your AC receives a yearly tune-up, its efficiency improves drastically. Did you know that the dirt, grime, leaves, and grass that collects in your condenser fins and condenser itself can greatly lower your air conditioner's overall efficiency? Your technician will completely clean out your unit, fix any bent fins and lubricate your parts to ensure it runs as efficiently as possible. If your power bills run extremely high in summer, you should consider having an AC tune-up as soon as possible. 

Extend the Life Expectancy of Your AC

It is not cheap to replace your AC, and major repairs can set you back several hundred, if not thousands of dollars, depending on the nature of the breakdown. When you enter into a preventive maintenance plan that includes yearly AC tune-ups, you are ensuring that your AC will last every single day of its rated lifetime.
